Go, but the light's on red
We're waiting on the starting line
Can feel my heartbeat
Mouth so dry.

And yeah, don't waste no time,
Strap yourself in, don't be shy, tonight

The roads we don't know say to drive slow,
We're going too fast, we're going too fast,
I couldn't stop if I wanted to try, now

Brake, brake, brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste.
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time, we're going

Down, Down, Down
And the shouting screams they drown
With no sound,
But the shattered glass so loud
I shout out,
'Cause I think we're going under, under.

The sky turns red,
The silent screams ring in my head, again.
Burning fills the air around,
I don't think I'll be found lying here.

The roads we don't know say to drive slow,
We're going too fast, we're going too fast,
I couldn't stop if I wanted to try, now

Brake, Brake, Brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste.
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time, we're going

Down, Down, Down,
And the shouting screams they drown,
With no sound.
But the shattered glass so loud,
I shout out,
'Cause I think were going under, under.

Brake, brake, this is more than I can take,
For Gods sake,
Help me get out of this place.
I can't wait cos I'm cold and left alone,
I shout out but no one hears my calls.

Brake, brake, this is more than I can take,
For God's sake,
Help me get out of this place.
I can't wait cos I'm cold and left alone,
I shout out but no one hears me.

Brake, brake, brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste,
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time.
So help me

Brake, brake, brake,
But a moment just too late,
For God's sake,
This life I just can't waste.
As hearts race,
And the clock it stops in time,
We're going

Down, down, down,
And the shouting screams they drown,
With no sound.
But the shattered glass so loud,
I shout out, 'cause I think were going under, we're going

Down, Down, Down,
And the shouting screams they drown,
With no sound.
But the shattered glass so loud,
I shout out, 'cause I think we're going under,

We're going down

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

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.

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
