Centre glow
Lights flood over old ground
Only the brightest stars can show
For what it's worth
For all it's worth
Streets catch breath
Foxes learn when the best time
Make escape on a warm summers night
Drunk on a future that makes you sick

What have you got to lose?
She could pick and choose from the boys
You could have it made, you shone so bright
Before you made her fade

She lost her nerve for a 60's moment
Lights flashing across the dancefloor
Comes to you split second
Get away
Get away, get away, get away, get away!!

She lost her nerve for a 60's moment
Lights flashing across the dancefloor
Comes to you split second
Get away
Get away, get away

Got lost in a world
Of cheap drinks and half smiles
Weekends you can't remember
How could you
How could you end up like this?
Come on, gather up
You still have time!!

Sitting pretty, smile at the driver
Panic stations, to move up the ladder
Get sad on brick walls, scuffed shoes
Got stuck on that one far too long

Whitened skin
Luminous black water
Hair caught on rocks like an anchor
A tight grip on the latest fall

She lost her nerve for a 60's moment
Lights flashing across the dancefloor
Comes to you split second
Get away
Get away, get away, get away, get away
Get away, get away, get away, get away
Get away, get away, get away, get away

    This song is amazing! Makes me just want to sit down and wonder about my life, and listen to the beat. I got recommended by a friend to listen to it and can't stop ever since!

    Amazing Song. Too bad that almost nobody hat written anything about this band. I just found them 3 days ago, so I better continue listening ;-)

Corpse I Fell In Love With
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.

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.

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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer

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.
