stand awake and unglued
we've got critical plans
what an incredible view
why don't you soak it all in?
i've been given the option to live into the new year
i've been stuck between a rock and a vinyl interior
and i've got just enough to share
i've got enough to pass it along
and i'm just so damn glad i'm here
isn't everyone?
borateen, tell me what's it all mean
and it's bad enough that i'm having to figure it out
borateen, i'm the king of my castle
when i drown it down
you spin me around
not a boy
not a man
innocence dissolved in your hands
it's a crutch
it's a crush
it's a sudden rush and it's unplanned
it's a ball
it's a chain
it's a crying shame that it's a gas
understand it's only urge anyone has
and i've got just enough to share
i've got enough to pass it along
and i'm just so damn glad i'm here
isn't everyone?
borateen, tell me what's it all mean
and it's bad enough that i'm having to figure it out
borateen, i'm the king of my castle
when i drown it down
you spin me around
not just anyone
bold as i've become
bite your lazy tongue
it's a sin to me
all your flattery it's just sympathy
it's just sympathy
and i've got just enough to share
i've got enough to pass it along
and i'm just so damn glad i'm here
isn't everyone?
borateen, tell me what's it all mean
and it's bad enough that i'm having to figure it out
borateen, i'm the king of my castle
when i drown it down
you spin me around

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.

Techno Ted
Audioslave
Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.

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.
