In the cities of the world
You know every boy and girl
Goes crazy to the beat of rock n' roll
And as the volume's soaring
All the crowd is roaring
Let it roll

Well, we don't care in the least
'Cause our metal is a feast
But there's always someone tryin' to put it down
So we crank the music louder
And our voices turn to power
With a wall of sound we'll blow 'em all away

Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock you)
Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock you)
We're gonna rock
We're gonna roll, roll, roll
We're gonna shake you down
We're gonna lose control

No one can hold us down
Just look around and see
This generation's getting up
And breaking free

No one can hold us down
Just look around and see
This generation's getting up
And breaking free

Rock you all around the world
Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock you)
Rock you all around the world

Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock you)
Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock you)
Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock you)
Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, rock, rock you)

Rock you all around the world
(We're gonna rock, we're gonna rock you)
Rock you all around the world

    Going out on a limb here but I'll say it's about the power of their music and the strength they get from their fans.

Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

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.
