I was born by the river
So I know where the river runs dry
I couldn't last forever

Accused just for living
But I know that the living was right
I couldn't last forever
Look at me making movies
Making living like I've never lived before

And the people wanting out of the river
Like a poor boy really should

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What you do for me I'll do for you, Yeah

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is blue for you

There's a man who I know
You know he's got a fist full of dirty dollars
And I know they won't last forever
Does he really know what people are saying
Always feeling sure what he is there saying
But the other's disappear he was alone

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What you do for me I'll do for you

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is blue for you

I go back to the river
Cause I know where the river runs dry
I couldn't last forever
Take the night making movies
Like a villain never ever seen the night of day
Don't you know that I can't last forever

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What you do for me I'll do for you

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is blue for you

Now I can sit and stand it
Like other people do
What is blue for me, is kind of blue for you, Yeah

Hello I'm going down
You know I don't want to wear no pretty crown
Help people I'm going down

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

Holiday
Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
