Ah satisfaction when you gonna show
Dyin' for some action dontcha wanna go
Down to the mainline betcha gonna crawl
Dance across the table, drink until you fall

When you feel it you gotta move
When you steal it you found the groove
Take me higher still it's not enough
One more desire to get me off

Shot o' love
Shot o' love
Shot o' love
Shot o' love

Steppin' out from undercover
We'll be oilin' up the fire
Gonna blow up your street
We go down to the wire
The scent is gonna lead you blind
Never know what you're sure to find
Gets you higher still it's not enough
One more desire to get me off

Shot o' love (ah, shot o' love)
Shot o' love
Ooh shot o' love (shot, shot o' love)
Shot o' love

When you step into the engine-room
Feel the system when it's all in tune
You push the power still it's not enough
Hands on a vision, gotta hang tough baby
The music gonna set you free
Roll it over when you turn the key
Come on baby, shoot me blind
Gimme everything, everything, lemme know you're mine

Shot o' love
Ooh shot o'
Uh gotta shot o' love (ah, love-love)
Shot o', shot o'

Come on!
Ooh ooh ooh (shot o' shot o' love)
Ooh ooh ooh (o' shot o' love)
Ooh ooh ooh shot o' (shot o' love)
I'm shot o' (ah ah o' love o' love)
Shot o' shot o' (ah ah)
I'm shot o' (ooh shot o' love)
Till the scent shot o' (ah ah)
Ooh ooh ooh (shoot o' shot o' love)
Ooh ooh ooh (shoot)
Yeah yeah (ah ah o' love o' love) ooh!

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.

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.
