Life is a dream...
Nothing's inside
Such as it seems,
As you've eyed.

Life is a dream,
So dreams the ram
Like dreams the lamb,
Thus, I just dream
What I am.

It's a kingdom and a jail,
It's as solid as it's frail,
And the only truth is dreams are dreams.
It's a kingdom and a jail,
It's a shade behind a veil,
And we fall in its schemes.

Odd contradiction:
Life is a dream.
Mixes facts and fiction,
Gold with stones that gleam;
And dreamers
With kings.

Dreams, like real things,
Confuse the human beings.
Life is a stage,
This is the norm,
One could be a sage
Or could be a fool when performs
Its role in this form.

It's a kingdom and a jail,
It's as solid as it's frail,
And we fall in its schemes.

Odd contradiction:
Life is a dream.
Mixes facts and fiction,
Gold with stones that gleam;
And dreamers
With kings.

[Guitar solo: Enrik / Bass solo: Mario / Both solo]

Odd contradiction:
Life is a dream.
Mixes facts and fiction,
Gold with stones that gleam;
And dreamers
With kings.

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
