I look but never touch
She says I drink too much
I only care about myself, sex, and the couch
You light up my whole day
Whenever you're away.
I'd love to say I've got you figured out. No way

If I get my hands on you, I would make you do all the things I want you to
And bend your will to mine, never hear you whine
Everybody break out, it's enough to shout, it's enough to shout, it's enough, yeah it's enough

She's callin', we're brawlin'
This is the hell that is my life
I'm laughing, she's crying
This is the hell that is my, hell that is my life

I feel the world revolves around me
I take my one way street.
I only have one serious bone in my body
You say you're not amused
You love to hate me too
You claim you wish you never got my name tattooed

Now you got your hands on me
And you can make me be, what you want me to be
And slash away my will, still you're my only thrill
Everybody break out, it's enough to shout,
It's enough to shout, it's enough, yeah it's enough


You say you're not amused
You love to hate me too
And now you tell your friends we're through, and never screwed

I can take you so much more
And you've got so much more in store
So when you say your mom don't like me, I say that your mom's a whore
Then you call me selfish pig and something small turns into something big
The more you shovel the more I dig.
The more you shovel and the more I dig

She calls, we talk, I scream, she cries
This is the hell that is my life
She calls, we talk, I laugh, she tries
This is the hell that is my.

    i downloaded this song to an anime music video for my ex (i dont like anime...however, i love rock music), so thanks to me we both got to hear this song

    i guess hed say it summed us up pretty well, with me being a paranoid gf who nagged. i can appreciate the great tune, but to me the lyrics is about how often in relationships men tend to sit back and they dont fulfill womens emotional needs. its that whole men are from mars, women are from venus thing, how the sexes dont understand each other, and how frustrating it is. it isnt hell, most relationships are liek that...i think its kind of a childish view of an adult situation, where u want everything to go right, otherwise u see it as "something wrong with my partner, maybe another one would be better", and relationships arent all pink fluffy clouds. in the song, the guy does things (almost boasts about them) that he knows piss his gf off, and she gets pissed off. but they dont sort them out, they just carry on the way they are, annoying each other.

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
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.

Techno Ted
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.
