Wowww we are fried!
Mary Jane, I feel silly when you pass me way,
You know I feel the same,
I come around here for another day,
You won't cause me trouble,
You always seem to be my source of pain... relief!
Woah, I'm not like you, baby I'll change.

And I say, whatcha doin' today, but you wanna go
There's this place I know where we can rock,
Maybe roll a little, take my hand it's not that far,
Here my friends, please don't be alarmed,
But they want some of what you got,
So make with the goods and maybe we'll write you a song.

M-M-M-M-Mary Jane!
I feel silly when you pass me way,
You know I feel the same,
Come around here for another day,
You won't cause me trouble,
You always seem to be my source of pain... relief!
Woah, I'm not like you, baby I'll change.

Ohh crime, is on my mind and tonight,
Well I just might change the world,
With a little bit of luck, give the place,
And the time is right,
Here my words, they may sound absurd,
But some people still got to learn,
That we're not to be harmed,
Remove your walls, and all your concern


And when we're rushing to the night,
I'm a roll and hold you tight,
And when we see those police lights,
It's a clue we should take flight,
And run away and don't look back,
While they hide behind their gun and badge,
You say I'm addicted, partially inflicted,
But I got what you want and you got what I need!


Oooh yeah, Mary Jane, I feel silly when you, Mary Jane, this time, Mary Jane, I feel silly when you, Mary Jane, in time.

Mary Jane, I feel silly when you, Mary Jane, this time, I'm not like you, I'm not like you, I'm not like you, baby I'll change....

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.

Bee Gees
@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.

Gentle Hour
Yo La Tengo
This song was originally written by a guy called Peter Gutteridge. He was one of the founders of the "Dunedin Sound" a musical scene in the south of New Zealand in the early 80s. From there it was covered by "The Clean" one of the early bands of that scene (he had originally been a member of in it's early days, writing a couple of their best early songs). The Dunedin sound, and the Clean became popular on american college radio in the mid to late 80s. I guess Yo La Tengo heard that version. Great version of a great song,

No Surprises
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Just A Little Lovin'
Dusty Springfield
I don't think it's necessarily about sex. It's about wanting to start the day with some love and affection. Maybe a warm cuddle. I'm not alone in interpreting it that way! For example: "'Just a Little Lovin’ is a timeless country song originally recorded by Eddy Arnold in 1954. The song, written by Eddie Miller and Jimmy Campbell, explores the delicate nuances of love and showcases Arnold’s emotive vocals. It delves into the universal theme of love and how even the smallest gesture of affection can have a profound impact on our lives."
