This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that
This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that
This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that
This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that

Recognize a real dime when you see one
And don't try and be one, ya fuckin' peon
I been like Dion for eons
You ain't nothin but a biatch

Messed around and let me re-up
I come back through and tear the street up
Ice Cube, nigga, you better D up
And when I come by bitch, you better be up

Ass up, face in the pillow
I don't give a fizzle
Got ta do my bizzle
The only nizzle that will never ever fizzle
Original, you niggas know

Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up

I got ta get wit cha
Hit you with these things that I'm holdin'
Who wanna squab with the frozen
Now who wanna battle with the chosen?
You niggas lotion
I'm no emotion
I'm shrapnel from the explosion
Hit you in the face while you posin'
High as Jimi Hendrix
I lined up ten dicks
And took out appendix
So go get forensics
Let em know I'm Geronimo
Till it's my time to go

You better find your ho
Get your babies and your mama
And move to Guantonimo

Doubt my skills
I'm payin' my bills
I'm up in the hills
You niggas are kills
Even though I'm on a fucked up label
You bitches know what I can bring to the table

Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up

This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that
This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that
This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that
This right here is payback from way back, I don't play that

I like bitches like you
Five Two, wearin' light blue
The freak get high too
With a fly do
Not a Erykah Badu
That's lookin' for an "I Do."
Now what can I buy you
Just to try you
Need another bitch to lie to
Need another bitch in my coupe
Oh please can I trouble you
For a double scoop

A nigga needs some T 'n A
Now you can dick but you can't get no DNA
I heard you was a big freak
(Can I hang?) Bitch look down I got some big feet
I like Mike and Ikes
I like watchin' dikes
I like goin' to fights
I like earnin' my stripes
In the book of life
There's only two women
Big ol' good ones and good ol big ones

Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up (come get some)
Gotta get 'em up (who wants some)
You better get 'em up

Spirit Within
Bertoldi Brothers
Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Battle Royale
Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.
