Salvation Lyrics

To all those people doin' lines,
Don't do it, don't do it.
Inject your soul with liberty,
It's free, it's free.

To all the kids with heroin eyes,
Don't do it, don't do it.
Because it's not not what it seems,
No no it's not not what it...

    This song is a song against the drug-addiction. Drug-addiction is a sort of disease that "infects" only sensitive persons with emotional insecurity. So there are two messages in the lyrics of the song: One message to the addicted kids who should distinguish the illusionary and instant satisfaction that the drugs offer from the real happiness and decide freely and alone to deal with the problem. And one message to the parents that deal with their children's problem, as if their children are to blame for their disease, instead of getting closer to them and supporting them psychologically.

    Besides, if you notice the tempo of the song, it's like describing the emotions that one has, when using drugs: strong and intense sense of a fake satisfaction, which shortly after ends instantly (the duration of the song is quite short).

    I think its just plain and simple ... "hey kids (emphasizing maybe naivite) do right by yourself and don't do drugs"

    Rather than do lines which costs money and screws you up like an addict or whatever ... do something good for yourself and "inject your soul with liberty" ... It's free and you feel good after!

    And heroin don't do it because is not what it seems ... It ain't all that ... ya feel good for a bit and then you feel like shit while you come down!

    Like their fellow irish countrymen U2, Dolores and the Cranberries runs in hte same similar vein with shades of being a sort of Christian-band in their own way. This one a treatise to the legalistic bullock implied by many so-called 'Born Again' churches, scripturally emphasising the fredom found by grace through the Salvation offered by Christ from sin and not by certain man-made religiousities bannered by many CHristian churches.
