Cuckoo x 4

Ten silver spoons coming after me,
One life with one dream on repeat,
I'll escape if I try hard enough,
'Til king of the jungle calls my bluff

Oh Lord, oh Lord,
I have been told, I have been told,
That I must take, the unforsaken road,
Unforsaken road
There's a fork in the road,
I do as I am told

And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know
Whoo-ooo-ooo-oo I wanna be
Cuckoo x 4

You say Y-E-S to everything,
Will that guarantee you a win?
Do you think you will be good enough,
To love a dozen to be loved?

Oh Lord, oh Lord,
Now I can see, now I can see,
The cutlery will keep on chasing me

There's a fork in the road,
I do as I am told
And I don't know, don't know, don't know, don't know,
Whoo-ooo-ooo-oo, I wanna be

We are the spoons metally mean,
We scooped our way into your dreams
To knock the knives out bloody cold
And lead you down the unforsaken road

I need you down the unforsaken road,
Unforsaken road,
There's a fork in the road,
I do as I am told,
And I don't know know know,
Ooh ooh-ooh ooh ooh, I wanna be

Cuckoo x 4

    Going down 'the unforsaken road' ie; one night stands, the whole lines point to an intoxicated view, and drugs maybe included within this. Overall it provides quite the existentialistic view on life itself. Great craftsmanship.

    Marina and the diamonds didn't put a "meaning" in this song. The words were chosen to paint an abstract picture like van gogh, and provide consonants that give the best relationship with the instruments.

    Perhaps a reference to heroin? Taken using a "spoon", the haunting controlling image which follows her forcing her to be lead "down the unforsaken road"
