In a desert
You're standing
A silhouette
In motion

On those lonely afternoons in June I need you
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
You'll feel so good upon my lips
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
Even though you're a million miles away

There's a space out there
And then when we can move

On those lonely afternoons in June I need you
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
You'll feel so good upon my lips
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
Even though you're a million miles away
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
You feel so good upon my lips
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
Even though you're a million miles away

You taste so great, on my lips
You taste so good, on my lips
Your moisture drips upon my lips
Just like a waterfall straight through the heart of me

Raindrops
Raindrops
Raindrops, raindrops
Raindrops, raindrops
Raindrops, raindrops

Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
You'll feel so good upon my lips
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
Even though you're a million miles away
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
You'll feel so good upon my lips
Just like raindrops (just like raindrops)
Even though you're a million miles away

When I want you, I'll follow you
I'll follow you
When I want you, I'll follow you
I'll follow you

    My Opinion

    It's too catchy not to like, I fell in love with it since the moment I heard it.

    I think it's about a distance relationship, maybe?

    I love Doorly's dubstep remix. Makes me think about my boyfriend. I love this song.

    My Interpretation

    In a desert You're standing A silhouette In motion

    From what I get out of these first lyrics of the song, I think the singer is remembering an old friend/lover who is not in his life anymore. The desert is his memory, he's forgotten most of the memories he shared with this person, making them even more distant from each other now. The person is a only a silhouette because he remembers him/her but only vaguely, he's forgotten the details. He doesn't feel like he really knows them anymore.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
