The common mistake is to forget
And concentrate on your never thought
The common mistake is to forget
I've remembered the part in your book
So I know exactly what is going on
Exactly what is going on
I don't think I know
Exactly what is going on
I think I know too much for myself

You're safe and sound
Until you hit the ground
You know it's a long way down

You're safe and sound
Until you hit the ground
You know it's a long way down

The common mistake is to forget
I always forget I forgot to remember
It's my common mistake
Exactly what is going on
Exactly what is going on
I don't think I know

You're safe and sound
Until you hit the ground
You know it's a long way down

You're safe and sound
Until you hit the ground
You know it's a long way down
You know it's a long way down

You're safe and sound
Until you hit the ground
You know it's a long way down

You're safe and sound
Until you hit the ground
You know it's a long way down
You know it's a long way down

I guess it's a long way down
I know it's a long way, it's a long way

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

"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.

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.
