[Chorus:]
Is it wrong to be so much in love with a girl that you can't tell her voice from the spinnin' of the world.
I am gone. I can fly like a comet on the sky. I'm a-lookin' for the shelter of a hurricane's eye.
If I turn the corner and your face, it isn't there, I'll come runnin' back tomorrow and go searchin' everywhere.
[Chorus]
The sunset is red. I remember what they said. There's no rest for the weary. I'd be better off dead.
I cannot find any words for my mind. My eyes, they can see, but it feels like I'm blind.
[Chorus]
I am gone. I can fly as a comet on the sky. I'm a-lookin' for the shelter of a hurricane's eye
If I turn the corner and your face, it isn't there, I'll come runnin' back tomorrow and go searchin' everywhere.
[Chorus 2x]

Show Me a Little Shame
Ben Harper & the Innocent Criminals
He certainly did earn that reputation.

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.

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.
