Never trust a junkie

Blood keeps drifting your way
Certain of its destination
Driving through New Orleans at night
Gotta find a destination

Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix

Life keeps slipping away
Fighting in a war with damnation
Poised, keep cutting away
I'm looking in through to salvation

Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix

Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix
Just one fix

Like if I boarded a train
Trying to take in another station
Join us and the choice will be made
Unless we kill the lie as a nation

Just one fix (just one fix)
Just one fix (just one fix)
Just one fix (just one fix)
Just one fix (just one fix)

Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)
Just one fix (one fix, one fix)

    Wow 13 comments, and not one about the meaning of this song.

    It's about Al's legendary heroin addiction, in case anyone couldn't figure that out.

    The days of Ministry? They released a new album this year you know, and in my eyes, they still rock. But i would say that the song 'Just one fix' and the album Psalm 69 is still the best album. :D

    Yeh, don't discount ministry, just because they have faded from the spot light doesn't mean they aren't still doing great stuff.

    And anyone that needs this song explained to them has issues :)

    This is the Version he is singing LIVE all the time, could the record company have censored the song on Psalm 69? Anyway, we all know it´s about Al´s 18-year long relationship with Heroin and this is precisely what it sounds and looks like in the Video: The search for "Just One Fix" when he is just about to go into withdrawal..

    Just One Fix: LIVE Version Lyrics(that makes the meaning a lot clearer):

    Life keeps slipping away Silence of desperation Trying to find a highway in vein Couldn't find a destination Just One Fix Clock keeps ticking away Banging on the walls of damnation Organs keep grinding away Monkey is the only salvation Just One Fix Monkey starts driving the train Tries to take it out of the station Tried to find a highway in vein Monkey kills without hesitation Just One Fix

    I remember the days of Ministry, back when I was still a teenager. I think they revolutionized alot music, and It's too bad they faded away, becaus I really enjoyed there music. When I was a teenager, Ministry's music was something new, and different. It was the music all the misfits listened to. Ministry was way ahead of it's time, and I dont think people were quite ready for there music. The style of there music is only now beggining to be realized. I see the influence they have on a lot of musicians. I can hear the influence.

    Every time I've seen this lyrics on any website I read the line "Driving through New Orleans at night", but I'm pretty sure it's "Driving through the highway at night".

    Any comments?

    I'd have to agree with you Alieno, to me it's always sounded like "Driving through the highway at night". I haven't listened to every remix available, so I can't be sure, but I'm pretty sure you're right.

    I listened to this album dozens of times, and barely understood a third of what Al was saying, but the songs rock so hard I never cared I guess. It's cool to finally see some of these lyrics. But yeah, you can totally enjoy them all based on the riffs and the sound. Great album, great tune.

    On the CD it sounds like "Driving through New Orleans at night", but if you watch the DVD Putas Madres he clearly says "Trying to find a highway in vain (vein?)". Then again, Al isn't one to stick to the rules, so he may just change it whenever he damn well feels like it.

No Surprises
Radiohead
Same ideas expressed in Fitter, Happier are expressed in this song. We're told to strive for some sort of ideal life, which includes getting a good job, being kind to everyone, finding a partner, getting married, having a couple kids, living in a quiet neighborhood in a nice big house, etc. But in Fitter, Happier the narrator(?) realizes that it's incredibly robotic to live this life. People are being used by those in power "like a pig in a cage on antibiotics"--being pacified with things like new phones and cool gadgets and houses while being sucked dry. On No Surprises, the narrator is realizing how this life is killing him slowly. In the video, his helmet is slowly filling up with water, drowning him. But he's so complacent with it. This is a good summary of the song. This boring, "perfect" life foisted upon us by some higher powers (not spiritual, but political, economic, etc. politicians and businessmen, perhaps) is not the way to live. But there is seemingly no way out but death. He'd rather die peacefully right now than live in this cage. While our lives are often shielded, we're in our own protective bubbles, or protective helmets like the one Thom wears, if we look a little harder we can see all the corruption, lies, manipulation, etc. that is going on in the world, often run by huge yet nearly invisible organizations, corporations, and 'leaders'. It's a very hopeless song because it reflects real life.

Blue
Ed Sheeran
“Blue” is a song about a love that is persisting in the discomfort of the person experiencing the emotion. Ed Sheeran reflects on love lost, and although he wishes his former partner find happiness, he cannot but admit his feelings are still very much there. He expresses the realization that he might never find another on this stringed instrumental by Aaron Dessner.

Page
Ed Sheeran
There aren’t many things that’ll hurt more than giving love a chance against your better judgement only to have your heart crushed yet again. Ed Sheeran tells such a story on “Page.” On this track, he is devastated to have lost his lover and even more saddened by the feeling that he may never move on from this.
