It's the way we feel
Tonight
As if it's all unreal
All right
My love, won't you come back to
Our love, you know I'll react to
The blood that moves the body
Now covers the ground
The blood that moves the body
The blood that moves the body

There's nowhere to go
Tonight
Lend some warmth to our cold
And lonely lives
Red stains on 'Eyes Of A Blue Dog'
My pains fade as the interiors fog
The blood that moves the body
Now colors the ground
The blood that moves the body
The blood that moves the body

Not long ago
It hurts us so
A tremble through our lives
The love love and care
The way we were
Lost it's way at nights

It's the way we feel
Tonight
Lend some warmth to our cold
And lonely lives
My love, won't you come back to
Our love, you know I'll react to
The blood that moved our bodies
Now covers the ground
Now covers the ground
The blood that moves the body
The blood that moves the body

    This song is in my opinion one of the greatest by the band. A great rock sound and haunting lyrics.

    Who is the girl in the video???

    These lyrics are absolutely disturbing. I am pretty sure they are about suicide as a love pair.

    "The blood that moved our bodies Now covers the ground Now covers the ground" is a pretty clear signal towards this.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

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.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives." https://oldtimemusic.com/the-meaning-behind-the-song-just-a-little-lovin-by-eddy-arnold/
