I've learned the words I've heard the song
I'm sorry we just don't get along
In other words I don't agree
It's someone's fault and I know it's not me

I know the rules of society
I know the game but I don't wanna play
I do my best and stick to what I think is right
I may not have a chance but I don't give up the fight

It's the same old talk and the same old story
Why can't everybody be like me
Can't things be the way they should be
How can I find a way to make 'em see

This is my world this is my land
And you will never know the hours that I spent
To find the trick to make it bend
It's me who's right and you don't understand

It's the same old talk and the same old story
Why can't everybody be like me
Can't things be the way they should be
How can I find a way to make 'em see

It's the same old talk sos
It's the same old talk sos
It's the same old talk sos
It's the same old talk sos

    This song rules! Its very catchy. I think its about somebody who has different opinions than everybody else, but he's going to fight for what he thinks its right. Awesome song!

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

"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.

Holiday

@[Diderik:33655] "Your a holiday!" Was a popular term used in the 50s/60s to compliment someone on their all around. For example, not only are they beautiful, but they are fun and kind too ... just an all around "holiday". I think your first comment is closer to being accurate. The singer/song writers state "Millions of eyes can see, yet why am i so blind!? When the someone else is me, its unkind its unkind". I believe hes referring to the girl toying with him and using him. He wants something deeper with her, thats why he allows himself to be as a puppet (even though for her fun and games) as long as it makes her happy. But he knows deep down that she doesnt really want to be serious with him and thats what makes him.
