Sweetness whispers nothings in my ear
Nothing is exactly what I hear
With a glaze she gazes into space
Is there nothing more?
There must be something more


I can see that beauty is more than skin
My infatuation leads me to sin
Give me vision past the epidermis girl
Is there nothing more?
There must be something more


Chorus:
I find a want, I want a need, I need a deeper love
I find a want, I want a need, I need a deeper love


Sweetness whispers nothings in my ear
Nothing is exactly what I hear
Give me vision past the epidermis girl
Is there nothing more?
There must be something more

    I love this song, it's so beautifully written for it's meaning.. Davy is expressing how our earthly affection and love for one another is never going to fill your heart. The only love that can make you complete is the love of Christ. He's asking that he can look past the 'epidermis girl' and find something deeper than just another girlfriend.

    This song deffinitely has alot of power. Our band played it for a show at our school, and alot of people asked us about it, and were surprised by our beliefs along the lines of not lusting towards women and abstinence. Davy is up there with musical geniuses like brian wilson!!! Check out the new brian wilson album, smile, available on bestbuy, and also the bleach guys are back together for a 6th album, with cover art based on a cs lewis book. They'll have info on bleached.com soon... My band is at fourdayfreedom.tk Check u out!

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.

Light Up The Sky
Van Halen
The song lyrics were written by the band Van Halen, as they were asked to write a song for the 1979 movie "Over the Edge" starring Matt Dillon. The movie (and the lyrics, although more obliquely) are about bored, rebellious youth with nothing better to do than get into trouble. If you see the movie, these lyrics will make more sense. It's a great movie if you grew up in the 70s/80s you'll definitely remember some of these characters from your own life. Fun fact, after writing the song, Van Halen decided not to let the movie use it.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.
