Il est un chemin
Masque qui s'efface
A la lisière
Des cyprès argents

Je lasserai ce soir
Les sirènes envoûtantes
Et les astres m'y guider
De leur triste chant

Mes parcelles non humanes
Se mélent au cœur
De l'eau bleue qui sommeille

Dans les jardins de minuit
Où s'est arrété le temps

Instinct spirituel
Donne-moi la force
Les rigueurs de ce monde

Rêves éveillés
Donnez-moi le courage
D'accueiller pleinement
La lumière autant que l'ombre

Dans les jardins de minuit
Les arbres s'élancent
Vers des lunes recueillies

Dans les jardins de minuit
Des géants s'élèvant
Au vent déchirant la nuit

The Midnight Path

There is a
masked path that fades
At the edge
of the silver cypresses
Tonight I will tire of
the captivating sirens
And the stars guide me there
With their sad song
My non-human plots
mingle in the heart
of the blue water that sleeps
In the midnight gardens
where time stood still
Spiritual instinct
Give me the strength
to embrace
the rigors of this world
Give me the courage
To fully welcome
The light as much as the shadow
In the gardens of midnight
The trees soar
Towards collected moons
In the gardens of midnight
Giants rising
In the wind tearing the night

    Song Meaning

    The lyrics describe a hidden path at the edge of silver cypresses, where the protagonist leaves behind alluring sirens and lets the stars guide him with their sad song. In the midnight gardens, time has stopped and there are non-human parts mixed within the sleeping blue water. The protagonist asks for spiritual instinct to help embrace the harsh realities of the world and the courage to fully accept both light and darkness. The trees reach towards collected moons and giants rise in the tearing wind of the night.

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.

This is about bronies. They communicate by stomping.

This is a sequel to 2001's "Reckless Abandon", and features the band looking back on their clumsy youth fondly.
