Asu on vapaa
täällä aiheet ja käsittely tapaa
merenrantaa, rautatietä ei näy
eikä näy näkyjä
näkyy sairasvuoteen pääty
likaiset astiat
joissa eiliset
odottaa uutta tulemista
enkelit ei tee tietä tähän
innoituksen asumukseen
ei pasuuna soi ei suotsua mirha
ei viisikanta kulmillaa tuo Sofia
Syviä sanoja
mutta häilähti äsken kuin kurillaan
rytmin seassa itkeskellen
muisto jostain tulevasta
eikä tämä ole leikki ollenkaan

hukkaanheitettyjen hetkien
puhuja ja kuuntelija
veli sisko jotka tietää
yksinäisyyden vuoren kirot
ja kiipeämisen vaikeudet
eivätkä halua yrittää
niinkauan kuin se mitä elämäksi
sanotaan heittää murusia käteen
vuosi vuodelta heikompaan
eihän tämän näin pitänyt
laulaa ikuista kertosäettään
kuin ajan ikonit
syytävät lempeitä hymyjään
kunnes kasvot mätänee
kunnes muistan kaiken ulkoa
eikä tekoja enää tule

    I think this song criticizes the lack of spirituality, religion, myths and wisdom (represented by Sofia).

So this has favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.
