I've always thought of 'Something Fast' as a song for for old junkies... That's 'Sergels torg' for the swedes amongst us Surprised

I always thought Something Fast was sung from the female perspecitve.
The need for a relationship at any cost rather than being alone.
TOL - anybody's guess. There are a lot of standard early Eldritch themes, rejection, unhappy love affair, drugs (a shot for the pain inside).
There seems to be a jilted or unrequited lover involved. He is the one that will throw their walls aside.

Something Fast is about a man with a lot of stress problems. Therefore he needs to find a one night stand prostitute to cure his head and hitch-hike out of town. I think anyway. The shagging prostitues thing is right though. Detonation Boulevard is about Eldritch's ego and career success. I think.

I just like the sound of it, but those make sense.

TOL - Well, you have love, and it's always over in the morning, and things became very depressing and dark.

I think it's about a trip to Mexico, a trip that includes a 'borrowed' car, some crystal meth, maybe a little mescal, and a strange revelation.

I always thought "Detonation Boulevard" was about "Americans" - but I could be wrong!

IMHO - Something Fast is about a person who really needs to escape their life at that point and does bot care Who When Where or How as long as its soon as possible!

TOL - IMHO is about "VON" getting F***ED over by a woman (women) again! - whilst Very Very Drunk (guardian angel walks away)

i thought detonation boulevard was just a big allegory for ....

computers.. because of all that damned sybolism or whatever crap that makes it like that. A really, really well written way to make an allegory of computers and that internet s**t.


someone please tell me im wrong. Id love the song so much more then.

i wouldnt want to think that my favorite rockstar who writes all this stuff is just pulling it out of his ass and none of his lyrics are related to anything real. Or whether he just intellectualizes all those great lyrics and songs up, and its just a load of s**t.

im done with my rant. because that would ruin this music for me

iwas under the impression that "something fast" was a drugs(speed)/human nature v. religion thing.

"God knows everybody needs a hand in their decision"
-or:religion thinks it has all the answers to the human condition
"some of us are not so sure"
-self-explanatory
"i seen his own [hand] held out on television"
-or:the hand of his followers,asking for money;common enough in the states (baltimore)
"gimme something fast"
-or gimme some speed,at least i know where i am with that,its reliable and its on my terms-"the fast stuff" or simply"fast" is a euphemism for speed/whizz (down our way)

i'ld just like to say that while the lyrics forum is obviously a)popular and b)a valid literary pursuit for the "lifeless" amongst us;i dont post here very often as we all seem to have our own very personal interpretations of vons lyrics (outside/alongside the commonly accepted/offered interpretations)...which is probably why we're all such devoted fans/anoraks/saddos and on HL to start with!
