Ahh
Yeah, yeah, yeah, hey
Yeah, yeah
You've got to show me love

Heartbreaks and promises
I've had more than my share
I'm tired of giving my love
And gettin' nowhere, nowhere
What I need is somebody
Who really cares
I really need a lover
A lover that wants to be there
It's been so long since I've touched a wanting hand
I can't put my love on the line
That I hope you'll understand

So, baby, if you want me
You've got to show me love
Words aren't so easy to say, alright
You've got to show me love

I'm tired of getting caught up
In those one night affairs
What I really need is somebody
Who will always be there
Don't you promise me the world
All that I've already heard
This time around for me, baby
Actions speak louder than words
If you're looking for devotion
Talk to me
Come with your heart in your hands
Because my love is guaranteed

So, baby, if you want me
You've got to show me love
Words aren't so easy to say, alright
You've got to show me love

Show me, show me, baby

You've got to give it to me, give it to me, give it to me, yeah
I don't want no fakes, don't want no phony
I need your love
Show me, show me, show me, baby
Give it to me, give it to me
I am not a toy, I'm not a play thing
You've got to understand

If you're looking for devotion
Talk to me
Come with your heart in your hands
Because my love is guaranteed
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, hey

Ministry
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.

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
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.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

I Can't Go To Sleep
Wu-Tang Clan
This song is written as the perspective of the boys in the street, as a whole, and what path they are going to choose as they get older and grow into men. (This is why the music video takes place in an orphanage.) The seen, and unseen collective suffering is imbedded in the boys’ mind, consciously or subconsciously, and is haunting them. Which path will the boys choose? Issac Hayes is the voice of reason, maybe God, the angel on his shoulder, or the voice of his forefathers from beyond the grave who can see the big picture and are pleading with the boys not to continue the violence and pattern of killing their brothers, but to rise above. The most beautiful song and has so many levels. Racism towards African Americans in America would not exist if everyone sat down and listened to this song and understood the history behind the words. The power, fear, pleading in RZA and Ghostface voices are genuine and powerful. Issac Hayes’ strong voice makes the perfect strong father figure, who is possibly from beyond the grave.

Magical
Ed Sheeran
How would you describe the feeling of being in love? For Ed Sheeran, the word is “Magical.” in HIS three-minute album opener, he makes an attempt to capture the beauty and delicacy of true love with words. He describes the magic of it all over a bright Pop song produced by Aaron Dessner.
