Everything is at its perfect, perfect best tonight
The black sky cracks with stars
All the old days fall apart

Stand up and hold your head up high
I'll know you'll try til the day you die
Maybe no-one knows your name?

Hey you, don't you know
We won the war again
I see what you meant when you said that there's
Hope in everyone

Stand up and hold your head up high
I'll know you'll try til the day you die
Maybe no-one knows your name?
They'll know it one day

Sing it to everyone alone,
I'm gonna sing it til the day I go
Maybe no-one's listening?
They'll hear it one day

Stand up and hold your head up high
I know you'll try it til the day you die

They never even knew your name

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.

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.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
