The faster I find the bottom
The sooner I turn it around
It seems as though I forgot
Just how far down
That I can go in an instant
And I can take you there
And I can take all my friends and family and I won't care

Cause I have the most reckless heart when I try
I have the most beautiful darkside
I need to find some meaning
Something true to believe in
Cause left to my own devices
The Beautiful darkside wins
The beautiful darkside wins

Always one for a good time
Always one for extremes
Until the fabric of life starts tearing at the seams
And I can never remember
When it started to turn
I just simply forget all of the things I've learned

Cause I have the most reckless heart when I try
I have the most beautiful darkside
I need to find some meaning
Something true to believe in
Cause left to my own devices
The Beautiful darkside wins
The beautiful darkside wins

Some day I will die (Have I just...)
Could be today or tonight (...Wasted time?)
The truth is I'm terrified
Have I just wasted time?
Wasted time
Have I just wasted time?

Cause I have the most reckless heart when I try
I have the most beautiful darkside
I need to find some meaning
Something true to believe in
I'm terrified of seeing
The beautiful darkside win
The beautiful darkside win

    My InterpretationI think the song is about addiction. Notablly because of saying always one for a good time and always one for extremes. You can be a beautiful person even while you suffer through your addiction. That's just my take

    Song MeaningI see it as being about a person who is, at their core, a thoughtful pessimist. They enjoy being happy, but are dragged down by their pessimism (darkside), which is beautiful because it's well thought out, instead of just being a pessimist for the sake of itself. However, the person knows that their pessimism is destroying both their self and his relationships with people, which is ultimately more important than the 'theology of their pessimism'.

    It's a truly beautiful song. One of The Crime's best.
