Un grand soleil noir tourne sur la vallée
Cheminées muettes, portails verrouillés
Wagons immobiles, tours abandonnées
Plus de flamme orange dans le ciel mouillé

On dirait, la nuit, de vieux châteaux forts
Bouffés par les ronces, le gel et la mort
Un grand vent glacial fait grincer les dents
Monstre de métal qui va dérivant

J'voudrais travailler encore, travailler encore
Forger l'acier rouge avec mes mains d'or
Travailler encore, travailler encore
Acier rouge et mains d'or

J'ai passé ma vie là, dans ce laminoir
Mes poumons, mon sang et mes colères noires
Horizons barrés là, les soleils très rares
Comme une tranchée rouge, saignée rouge, saignée sur l'espoir

On dirait, le soir, des navires de guerre
Battus par les vagues, rongés par la mer
Tombés sur le flan, giflés des marées
Vaincus par l'argent, les monstres d'acier

J'voudrais travailler encore, travailler encore
Forger l'acier rouge avec mes mains d'or
Travailler encore, travailler encore
Acier rouge et mains d'or

J'peux plus exister là
J'peux plus habiter là
Je sers plus à rien, moi
Why plus rien à faire
Quand je fais plus rien, moi
Je coûte moins cher, moi
Que quand je travaillais, moi
D'après les experts

J'me tuais à produire
Pour gagner des clous
See'est moi qui délire
Ou qui devient fou
J'peux plus exister là
J'peux plus habiter là
Je sers plus à rien, moi
Why à plus rien à faire

Je voudrais travailler encore, travailler encore
Forger l'acier rouge avec mes mains d'or
Travailler encore, travailler encore
Acier rouge et mains d'or

Step
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.

Fortnight
Taylor Swift
The song 'Fortnight' by Taylor Swift and Post Malone tells a story about strong feelings, complicated relationships, and secret wishes. It talks about love, betrayal, and wanting someone who doesn't feel the same. The word 'fortnight' shows short-lived happiness and guilty pleasures, leading to sadness. It shows how messy relationships can be and the results of hiding emotions. “I was supposed to be sent away / But they forgot to come and get me,” she kickstarts the song in the first verse with lines suggesting an admission to a hospital for people with mental illnesses. She goes in the verse admitting her lover is the reason why she is like this. In the chorus, she sings about their time in love and reflects on how he has now settled with someone else. “I took the miracle move-on drug, the effects were temporary / And I love you, it’s ruining my life,” on the second verse she details her struggles to forget about him and the negative effects of her failure. “Thought of callin’ ya, but you won’t pick up / ‘Nother fortnight lost in America,” Post Malone sings in the outro.

The Night We Met
Lord Huron
This is a hauntingly beautiful song about introspection, specifically about looking back at a relationship that started bad and ended so poorly, that the narrator wants to go back to the very beginning and tell himself to not even travel down that road. I believe that the relationship started poorly because of the lines: "Take me back to the night we met:When the night was full of terrors: And your eyes were filled with tears: When you had not touched me yet" So, the first night was not a great start, but the narrator pursued the relationship and eventually both overcame the rough start to fall in love with each other: "I had all and then most of you" Like many relationships that turn sour, it was not a quick decline, but a gradual one where the narrator and their partner fall out of love and gradually grow apart "Some and now none of you" Losing someone who was once everything in your world, who you could confide in, tell your secrets to, share all the most intimate parts of your life, to being strangers with that person is probably one of the most painful experiences a person can go through. So Painful, the narrator wants to go back in time and tell himself to not even pursue the relationship. This was the perfect song for "13 Reasons Why"

Dreamwalker
Silent Planet
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.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.
