In days gone by we chose our side
Showed them we weren't afraid to step over the line
Standing fall we would look you in the eye
Cause what we hold true you could never deny
You don't understand what we chose to condemn
You're the one who has made it us against them
Our hearts turn black and our blood runs cold
When we see our country being bought and sold

With eyes of fire we see things today
You could never change us cause it's our way
With eyes of fire we see things today
You could never stop us it's too late

Long ago we learned it's our fight
To try to bring out what they hide from our sight
To show them they have not won our hearts and minds
With their pledges, promises, and campaign lies
With eyes of fire we see what we see
For this country, what it is, and should be
Where an honest man can get ahead and not just by
And say he loves his country with his head held high

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

Techno Ted may be a person who caused Chris incredible emotional pain & trepidation as well as moments of peace & happiness but now is removed and awaiting his fate. Darling may be a different person who is also free of him and can live her life free of Ted's tyranny. "In between all the laughing, and daydreams ... lies: a desert of truth" Lies are like a desert or the omission of Truth: Where there were Lies then Truth was absent. The song, "Techno Ted", may be a cathartic celebration of the downfall of this person.
