I am in a living hell, makes me wonder if I'm alive
Can't seem to bring myself to figure out why
I shove and I pull away from the things
That I call you every night
I can't seem to break you down
But I know I'll come around

I feel your pins through my eyes piercing me
Lie down in all this piss,
You drink it from me every night
I live in a world of shit, been left here to die
Sometimes I realize my mind is meant to go away
Never have I seen your God,
So why should I believe in faith?
I feel your pins through my eyes
Piercing me, all the time
Another time bomb

I never find the time to find another fucking place,
I'm a bad motherfucker who lives it everyday,
You never look at me now,
You never look me in the face,
I'm a time bomb baby.

I can't find the time to find the place
I'm a bad motherfucker who lives it everyday
You never look at me now
You never look me in the face, I'm a time bomb
What am I waiting for?

Never find the time to find another place,
I'm a bad motherfucker who lives it everyday
You never look at me now,
You never look me in the face,
I'm a time bomb, yeah!

    This is what it means to me. This is a person who is sick of society. The person hides it. They don't look very harmful. But when they snap aka the Time Bomb goes off and they explode and get revenge on the the society.

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?

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.

Son Şansın - Şarkı Sözleri
Hayalperest
This song seemingly tackles the methods of deception those who manipulate others use to get victims to follow their demands, as well as diverting attention away from important issues. They'll also use it as a means to convince people to hate or kill others by pretending acts of terrorism were committed by the enemy when the acts themselves were done by the masters of control to promote discrimination and hate. It also reinforces the idea that these manipulative forces operate in various locations, infiltrating everyday life without detection, and propagate any and everywhere. In general, it highlights the danger of hidden agendas, manipulation, and distraction, serving as a critique of those who exploit chaos and confusion to control and gain power, depicting a cautionary tale against falling into their traps. It encourages us to question the narratives presented to us and remain vigilant against manipulation in various parts of society.

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.
