Tout semble si apaisé dans ma ville
Si je suis fou, que cache cet asile
Ces africaines aux cheveux lisses
Qui malgré tout l'avaient faite métisse
Tous ces sourires qui coulent à flot
Et tant de bourses à boire des chocolats chauds
Tous ces enfants à qui il ne manque rien
Et les terrasses qui ont fait le plein
Je suis fracas quand la foule est tranquille
Et toi tu sembles si apaisée, ma ville

chorus :
N'attends pas qu'ils reviennent
Même s'ils n'ont pas d'armes, tu vois
N'attends pas qu'ils reviennent
Ils ont pris quatre villes déjà
N'attends pas qu'ils nous tiennent
Même s'ils n'ont pas d'armes, ils sont là
N'attends pas qu'ils reviennent

Y manque que le sable et le soleil couchant
Y manque que la mer, y'a déjà les marchands
Y'a même un peu de vent qui fouette
Et les pigeons qui font semblant d'être des mouettes
Des jambes nues et des cuisses croisées
Comme un certain l'a écrit : la Nausée
Tous ces goûters à vous dégoûter du bonheur
A pas aimer qu'il soit bientôt quatre heures
Je suis fracas quand la foule est tranquille
Et toi tu sembles si apaisée, ma ville


Tout semble si apaisé dans ma ville
Mais j'y crois pas, tout ça c'est trop facile
Toutes les villes se prennent avec des mots
Y'a toujours une moitié pour dire : Bravo !
C'est pas la guerre, c'est dépassé
On me dit : c'est qu'un mauvais moment à passer
En tout cas si je lâche mon lasso
Ils seront à la porte de mon ghetto
Comme à Toulon, Orange ou Marignane
Mais je m'en fous, ici on aime la castagne

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.

The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
