Sweet two-faced lover
Don’t you cry in shame
I ain’t got nothing on you
Got just myself to blame

Ain’t nothing more to discover
What have you ever done
This demolition worthy
What could ever be so wrong

Let me tell your story
I’ll make it turn it into gold
Don’t need no one to believe me
‘Cus baby, I got 'em in my stranglehold
I got 'em in my stranglehold

Wait for the sisters of mercy
You know that they’re all gone
There’s no escaping
You’ll find he’s next to none

I’ll face the endless armies
You know I’ll take ‘em all
I always find my way
No matter how big or tall

Let me tell your story
I’ll make it turn it into gold
Don’t need no one to believe me
‘Cus baby, I got 'em in my stranglehold
I got 'em in my stranglehold

Don’t wait around for your killer
You gotta open your eyes
Don’t you carry the wicked
Now you just need to survive
Listen to your story
Come in, out of the cold
Don’t you think that it feeds me
But I think it’s time
Oh, I know it’s time, for my kinda Stranglehold

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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.
