I see the day past me by
When I'm next to you
For the longest time
I prayed that I could ride up in yo Coup
As the wheels, they roll
Time roll so slow
Feels like I disappear
Gotcha eyes on the road
And so many things
It's just like I'm not here

I can here the music playing
Turn it to my favorite station
Wind all on my face
But that's no remedy
When your heart it seem to be breaking
Tell you and you just don't listen
Don't know how much more I can take it
Nothing to say but

Stop this car
I don't wanna ride no more
Cause it's just too fast
And you wont pump the brakes
Slow down hear what I gotta say
Stop this car
Was our destination too far?
I wanna get out
I don't wanna ride no more
Baby just stop this car

I miss the days when we would
Tour the countryside
And drive for hours on open road
Til the tank was dry
The minutes pasted, we cry and laugh
Get inside you're mind
Now it seems you built a wall
That I just can't knock down

I can here the music playing
Turn it to my favorite station
Wind all on my face
But that's no remedy
When my heart it seem to be breaking
Tell you and you just don't listen
Don't know how much more I can take it
Nothing to say but


There's nothing worse than being ignored (being ignored)
If you don't want me put the brakes to the floor (to the floor)
When you shut me out I feel so alone
Pull over right here, open up the door
Watch me, I can be gone, oh yeah
Oh yeah, Stop this car, Stop this car

[Chorus: x2]

Dark night surrounding me
Watching you're lights fade away

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.

@[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.
