cheers to another one
cheers to my discontentment
you wouldn't know a good thing if you saw it

and

we've been marching to the same beat for so long,
for so long now
it's beginning to tire my feet
and it seems you missed the point completely

and things aren't always what they seem to be (what they seem to be)
what they seem to be

this is just a nightmare
just a dream
psychosomatic evaluation
this is just a trip of the imagination
x2

so, watch your step
the planks are rotting beneath your path
and as you take your last breath
and grip the rope

we've been marching to the same beat for so long, for so long now
it's beginning to tire my feet
and it seems you missed the point completely

and things aren't always what they seem to be (what they seem to be)
what they seem to be

this is just a nightmare
just a dream
psychosomatic evaluation
this is just a trip of the imagination
x2

I'm still trapped by my own delusion
create your own demise
I'm still trapped by my own delusion
create your own demise
don't ever say I told you so
this is just your nightmare
so fucking let it go

we've been marching to the same beat for so long, for so long now
it's beginning to tire my feet
and it seems you missed the point completely

this is just a nightmare
just a dream
psychosomatic evaluation
this is just a trip of the imagination

this is just a nightmare
just a dream
psychosomatic evaluation
this is just a dream
just a dream

    I think this song is about being bored with being "normal" ("we've been marching to the same beat for so long, for so long now it's beginning to tire my feet"), and about wanting to become your own person even if it makes other people think you're crazy. i could be wrong, im new at this

    EXCELLENT SONG nothing of the world "they" want you to see and fit into (march to their drums instead of your own) is real, its just a nightmare, illusion. None of it's real and no one really fits in, everyone's pretending.

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.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

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.
