[ VERSE 1: Antoinette ]
Ain't I something? So many rappers wanna get me
They stand in front of me and can't hit me
So sling, hm, I just love it
And if you're jealous, I think nothin of it
Cause with me, you can't mess with
You wanna try this? That's a death wish
And survival is unrealistic
And if you're broken up, let me fix this
Matter of fact, I can't let a rapper win
I ain't re-run, that ain't happenin
They try to sample me everyday somehow
And try to dis this? Ts.. come, come now
Why move in my direction?
Play it safe, get some protection
Silly rabbits, they bring a condom
So I laugh, and then I bomb them
Bring the bomb squad, I'm a time bomb
I explode, even when I rhyme calm
Takin titles, what is that, some type of joke?
Oh - I hoped
Cause if it was, you'd be in trouble
Hurry, quick, move on the double
In this rap game you're a reject
So make like a tape and eject
Now there, don't try to play bold
Half-step to Antoinette, you shake, rattle & roll

[ male voice whispering ]
(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

Shake, rattle & roll

(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

[ VERSE 2: Antoinette ]
We can do this, cause you're child's play
Don't toy me, or must I say
Yo, break north, step back one
Hold your eye, or it'll be a black one
So get Red Cross, cause that's your need
And as for me, I'm a rapper of a raw breed
You wanna move on, then move quick
Who's the best? Let's see who you've picked
Ts, ts, ts... go get her
Bring two, we're havin double head up
It's such fun puttin two heads out
Yo G Off, get a few ???? out
Cause they believed the hype and
Now they'll be wipin
Up the mess I left behind me
I lose myself so they can't find me
Now the Gangstress is at large and
You're a private and I'm a sergeant
So troops, it's time to get fresh
And follow Antoinette as I do the Kick Step

Shake, rattle & roll

(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

Shake, rattle & roll

(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

[ VERSE 3: Antoinette ]
(Ready?) I'm ready as I'll ever be
I use deodorant, but some still sweat me
But I stay calm with a smooth tone
Hurry quick, buy a tombstone
Cause playin is somethin that I don't do
Make my day, why won't you?
I'm the host, but this ain't a game show
That only takes place over the rainbow
I chase chuckwagons, let's get so
You're like my pet, so play petro
Save Chuck for the wagon, it fits
Amongst all the pieces of kibbles and bits
Cause I'm good (ahh) to the last drop
Of course, I just can't stop
And stardom is where I'm destined
In this profession, yup, I'm the best in
You're still riffin? Yo, bank that
Hit the side door before I spank that
Stop scrappin, huffin and puffin
Sorry, Sally, you ain't sayin nothin
Much, you can't school this
And if you thought so, that's quite foolish
So remember, don't try to play bold
You half-step to Antoinette, you shake, rattle & roll

(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

Shake, rattle & roll

(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

Shake, rattle & roll

(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

Shake, rattle & roll

(Knock em out, come on girl, knock em out
Knock em out)

(Knock em out
Come on, knock em out
Knock em out
Knock em out
Come on girl, knock em out)

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
