Well you fooled me say your livin' in France
Drinkin' cheap champagne
Got a second chance
You got a lover and he's six feet-five
Ain't he shakin' you up
Ain't you glad you're alive
It's a wild life
You're not in my shoes
A wild life (ah)
A wild life
I do what I want
A wild life
My life
Yeah yeah
I'm still living in a hole in the wall
With a jukebox praying
And a heart that's stalled
Got no excuses for the way that I live
You're so eager to take
I'm so eager to give
It's a wild life
You're not in my shoes
A wild life
A wild life
I¹ll do what I want
A wild life
My life
Wild life
Wild life
So get off my back
A wild life (ah)
Wild life
I do what I want
A wild life
My life
Yeah
I ain't looking for a steady romance
Or a lucky break or a second chance
I've been a winner
I've been a loser too
But I don't know any better
I'm still looking for you
It's a wild life
You're not in my shoes
A wild life
I got nothing to lose
A wild life
I'll do what I want
A wild life
My life
Wild life
Wild life
You're not in my shoes
A wild life
I got nothing to lose
A wild life
I go where I please
A wild life
My life
Wild life
Baby it's a wild life
Wild life
Baby it's a wild life
Wild life
Baby it's a wild life
Wild life

Corpse I Fell In Love With
Gadjits, The
He reuses the verse melody from the previous album's "Dirty Little Religion", the topics of the verses are all over the place, and he packs too many words into one line (goes to show...) and too few in another (it's pretty hard to find), and rhymes "Henley Regatta" with "Persona non grata", but gets away with it all as only he could.

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.

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”

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.
