I've been trying, there's no denying
It's sending me out of my mind
I've seen reason
Change to treason
It's losing its sense of all kind

How much longer will it take for the world to see
We should learn to live and simply let it be

Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone

In the night time
Wake in fright
I'm so scared of the game that's being played
Start to wonder what's going under
And how many deals have been made

How much longer will it take for the world to see
We should learn to live and simply let it be

Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone

Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone

Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone
Bloodstone

Bloodstone (I can't, I can't take it)
Bloodstone (you got me living)
Bloodstone (I don't want that)
Bloodstone

    It's about spilled blood on this world. Violence that is never justified going in a cycle that will end the world one day...um and this is a great song.

    This song is named after the bloodstone, an erection. More specifically, it is about a gay man struggling to come to terms with his homosexuality in a world that discriminates against gay men and their pursuit of happiness and interpersonal connection.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.

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.
