If not tonight
This is the strangest feeling
Something I can't control
Do I play the fool for you

If not tonight
Waiting forever
Just to see your face
Waiting is all that I seem to do

Yeah puro amore
Will another night exist like this again

Yeah solo amore
We will never get this moment back
Again

If not tonight
Underneath the stars
Beneath the crescent
Sinking down into the sea
It's not the time
But I will wait forever
If this is what you want
Waiting could be the end of me

One day I will open your eyes
Underneath the stars
Beneath the crescent

Yeah puro amore
Will another night exist like this again

Yeah solo amore
We will never get this moment back
Again

Yeah puro amore
Let it be with you tonight
There will never be a night
If not tonight

Tell me when my love

    By Joe Ceravolo

    The doll is sleeping Why is this home so hard? We run into the water Lice in heaven

    Ten o’clock—the class The show is stopping To tell us where to stop and eat and drink It comes out to us My pants are damp Is tonight treating us But not reaching through the window?

    Baby sleeps Sleeping on the cliff is dangerous See how her heart moves I stink and I know it Screw you. You’re right! I did drink my milk like a mother of wolves I love you No one should be mean They are Like a flower, little light You are open and we make believe Always holding you—because I love you And never stop

    I am delighted with my heart Although my circus animals are all on show (Those crazy boys, the burnished chariot lions and witches—and lord knows what!) When I had laid it on the floor I went to blow the fire aflame But something rustled on the moor And someone called me by my name She was a shimmering girl With little demons in her hair Who called me by name and ran And faded through the brightening air I will find out where she has gone And kiss her lips And take her hand And walk among long dappled grass And pluck—till time and times are done The silver apples of the moon The golden apples of the sun (Why, what could she have done being what she is? Was there another Troy for her to burn?)

    Sometimes love letters was the name I gave her She. Slightly crazed—had given her heart away But my blue heaven had intervened to save her While the fairy queen that rose out of the spray Said—better to smile on all that smiles And show there is a comfortable kind of scarecrow What a star sang and careless muses heard Old clothes upon old sticks to scare a bird And therefore my heart—is driven wild She stands before me—as a fairy child And binding down before the glowing bars He murmurs a little sadly—how love fled And pacing the mountains overhead He tries his luck among a crowd of stars

    William Butler—Billy Yeats—paraphrased

    The night attendant, a studious sophomore Rouses from the mare’s nest of her drowsy head Propped on “The Meaning of Meaning.”

    Your nurse could only speak Italian But after 20 minutes I could imagine your “finals” week And tears ran down my cheeks

    She catwalks down our corridor Azure day Makes my agonized blue window bleaker Crows maunder on the petrified fairway Absence! My heart grows tense As though a harpoon were sparring for the kill (This seems, at times, a house for the mentally ill …) What use is my sense of humor? Three months. Three months. Three months! Is Lily now herself again? Dimpled with amusing exultation My sister holds court in her bathtub Our noses rub Spring moved to summer The rude, cold rain hurries the ambitious

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
Thursday
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.

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.
