Race to the fire
All the wheels are turning
All alone just in a lonely world
Yeah baby

Maybe love is a lonely number
Can't you hear the wheels of thunder
They're driving deep into your heart
Feelings they'll never be torn apart

Maybe he's the man behind the wire
He's living in a world of fire
He sailed his ship alone
There's a heart but there's no home

Race to the fire
All the wheels are turning
All alone just in a lonely world
Till the end of the time
He's fighting the crime
That's no lie, my baby

Race to the fire
To the end of Eden
To the city of the lost and found
He is too proud to cry
Or too live with a lie
Take him seriously, baby

Race to the fire
To the end of Eden
To the city of the lost and found
He is too proud to cry
Or too live with a lie
Take him seriously, baby

Race to the fire
To the end of Eden
To the city of the lost and found
He is too proud to cry
Or too live with a lie
Take him seriously, baby

Race to the fire
All the wheels are turning
All alone just in a lonely world
Till the end of the time
He's fighting the crime
That's no lie, my baby

Race to the fire (fire)
Race to the fire (fire)
Race to the fire
He's fighting for your rights
Race to the fire
Race to the fire (fire)
Race to the fire (fire)

Only the strong survive

Maybe he's goin' through the motions
There's a shadow of devotion
Its showin' his destiny
One minute past eternity

Oh maybe good things don't last forever
He's living just now or never
No mountain is high enough
Times are getting really tough

Race to the fire
All the wheels are turning
All alone just in a lonely world
Till the end of the time
He's fighting the crime
That's no lie, my baby

Race to the fire
All the wheels are turning
All alone just in a lonely world
Till the end of the time
He's fighting the crime
That's no lie, my baby

Race to the fire
All the wheels are turning
All alone just in a lonely world
Till the end of the time
He's fighting the crime
That's no lie, my baby

Race to the fire
Fighting for your rights
Race to the fire
Time is on his side
Race to the fire
Two hearts collide
Race to the fire
There is no crime

Race to the fire
All the wheels are turning
All alone just in a lonely world
Till the end of the time
He's fighting the crime
That's no lie, my baby

Race to the fire

Step
Ministry
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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

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/
