Only girls allowed inside so we stood by the entrance
There was no way for us to ever get in
Saw a man wearing a Speedo his t-shirt was tucked in
From the bar, we were listening to a bad punk band

Were goin out tonight feeling alright, far from the grind just for one night
Were goin out alright on this town, spare me the truth don't let us down

By bakers blvd. It was hot outside again
A few kids were in the water so we all jumped in
Floated on the river all the locals were breaking the laws
And it was all right and we rolled up again

Were goin out tonight feeling alright, far from the grind just for one night
Were goin out alright on this town, spare me the truth don't let us down

It's just not cool to transcribe this part (go Ronnie go!)

Somewhere near central station we lost our way back home
The number 14 was coming round the bend
In the streets late at night, Tim's fire was rising high
What a riot just one night on this town

Spare me the truth, don't let us down...

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.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

The Spy
Doors, The
Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Techno Ted
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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.
