"True Faith" as written by Bernard Sumner / Peter Hook / Stephen Morris / Gillian Gilbert / Stephen Hague....
Well, that was some performance you gave at the Albert's Dam
Oh Sri Lanka, hilarious
And by the way you missed nothing after leaving

I used to think that the day would never come
I'd see delight in the shade of the morning sun
My morning sun is the drug that brings me near
To the childhood I lost, replaced by fear
I used to think that the day would never come
Spend my life in the shade of the morning sun

I feel so extraordinary
Something's got a hold on me
I get this feeling I'm in motion
A sudden sense of liberty
I don't care 'cause I'm not there
And I don't care if I'm here tomorrow
Again and again I've taken too much
Of the things that cost you too much

    General CommentWow, it seems obvious now that this was written about drugs, but I had no clue. I was crazy about this song but lately could not recall the name or the group, finally did just now. Back when this video was running on MTV, I somehow suspected it was about a person with emotional trauma getting to the source of his pain through therapy, the "morning sun" being a positive image, light at the end of the tunnel, etc. And the "I feel so extraordinary" part, I thought of as positive emotions related to an emotional breakthrough or recovery. At first I actually thought they were saying "my morning sun is the TRUCK that brings me here", but after I realized it was DRUG, I thought they were referring to a person undergoing a drug therapy to recover lost childhood memories. And I also thought the lyrics were saying "I took your time & you took my money" rather than "YOU took my time & you took my money" - I thought this might have referred to, the patient taking the time of his therapist, and the therapist took his money, with a sort of reference to being kind of left out there on his own, feeling abandoned in the big bad world that is "too demanding" now that the therapy is over. A friend went thru years of psychotherapy for serious childhood abuse issues, probably why I thought that - funny how you can read what you want into anything -
