Speculate the past and gone
And second guess our very first impression
Under a veil of fun and light
Open eyes are copping out down

I wanna lie here ready to believe
Place down what is out reach
Within the burden of a thought to haunt me
Ignorance is as blissful as it comes

Bred within not to think twice
These closeted fascists are coming out
When too truthful a mood outweighs a lie
Balancing on damages and what is right

I wanna lie here ready to believe
Place down what is out reach
Within the burden of a thought to haunt me
Ignorance is as blissful as it comes

I wanna lie here ready to believe
Place down what is out reach
Within the burden of a thought to haunt me
Ignorance is as blissful as it comes

I wanna lie here ready to believe
Place down what is out reach
Within the burden of a thought to haunt me
Ignorance is as blissful as it comes

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.

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.
