Chorus 1:
Does anyone know my name?
Is there anybody there?
You're as near me as you can ever be
Watching me
Watching me

Does anyone love me?
Does anyone need me?
Nobody knows my name
Takes my blame
Feels my pain

Chorus 2:
Does anyone care for me?
I just need a life to share
All my life I've searched
For someone just like you
Is there anybody there?
Is anyone there?
Anyone there?

Verse 1:
I don't know why you make me wanna stay
'Cos there's no-one left to love
I'm losing my life for a reason
I'm losing my life 'cos of you

Tag 2:
Is anybody really there?

No-one waits for no-one
No-one cares at all
Nowhere left to hang around
No-one left to call

Patience is my virtue
By virtue of my shame
Broken pieces everywhere
Everything's a game

Where have all the people gone
That once were in my life
Why has everybody gone away?

Chorus 3:
Does anyone know my name?
Or does anybody care?
There's a reason
Why I know I have to stay
So is anybody there?

I'm losing my life for a reason
I'm losing my life 'cos of you
I want to know you're out there just for me

Chorus 4:
I'm tired of waiting here for you
Now I've made up my mind
You're no good
I don't need you
I don't care anymore when you cry

I'm sending my love far away
With a piece of my heart
And a tear for each day
That I cried
So there must be a reason for living
There must be a reason for loving

It's all right
It's all right

Tag 4:
Will anyone really care
If I just walk away
With a tear in each eye
And a reason not to stay?

Does anyone really know me?
Does anyone really care?
Is there anybody there?

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.

The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.

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.
