A strange kind of love
A strange kind of feeling
Swims through your eyes
And like the doors
To a wide vast dominion
They open to your prise
This is no terror ground
Or place for the rage
No broken hearts
White wash lies
Just a taste for the truth
Perfect taste choice and meaning
A look into your eyes
Blind to the gemstone alone
A smile from a frown circles round
Should he stay or should he go
Let him shout a rage so strong
A rage that knows no right or wrong
And take a little piece of you
There is no middle ground
Or that's how it seems
For us to walk or to take
Instead we tumble down
Either side left or right
To love or to hate

    My InterpretationKnowing that Peter grew up Catholic and then apparently embraced Islamic beliefs around 1990 when this song was released - I believe it represents Peter's inner discussion about his Catholic faith and then his eventual move to an Islamic influence.

    The first verse symbolizes his view of Jesus Christ and the promise of heaven.
    The second verse symbolizes what heaven offers.
    The third verse symbolizes the "hold" that Catholicism has on him.
    The fourth verse symbolizes that he must choose between his faiths.
    The fifth verse in the newer (extended) version discusses "Somebody sometime has to leave another - for a place ..." and then repeats the second verse which describes heaven.

    I believe, and its only my opinion, that the song represents his struggle with growing up Catholic and then turning to Islam later in life. (He eventually moved to Turkey) The fifth verse which was added later essentially implies that entry to heaven can be obtained through faith - be it Catholic or Islamic doctrine.
