The Cult are a British rock band formed in 1983. Before settling on their current name in January 1984, the band performed under the name Death Cult, which was an evolution of the name of lead singer Ian Astbury's previous band Southern Death Cult. They gained a dedicated following in the UK in the mid-1980s as a post-punk/gothic rock band, with singles such as "She Sells Sanctuary", before breaking mainstream in the United States in the late 1980s as a hard rock band with singles such as "Love Removal Machine" and "Fire Woman".
Thoughts on Songs with The Cult

For me this song is about the "Sweet Salvation" a love provides. This guy was "made of stone" but the "golden heart" of his loved one broke him. Ultimately this love guides him, makes him feel strong and with self-confidence, even helping dealing with his past.
