Oohh...
I think I'll stay in my little closet
I think I'll stay where it's nice and warm
There's no one to ask me embarrassing questions
There's no one to wonder where I've been

I think I'll stay in my little posse
I think I'll stay where I think I'm free
So they can protect me from my infidelity
And I can believe they care about me

I can beat you, I can beat you
I love aggression, I love aggression
I can reach you
Inside your dirty mind
But don't talk about...
Skin, skin, black skin, Sexuality
You're not wanted
Skin, skin, black skin, Sexuality
You're not wanted
You're not wanted 'cause you look too much like I do

I think I'll stay in my little culture
I think I'll try to be, what you wanna see
And I can pretend I'm one of the girlies
I can pretend it's no big deal

But what do I do if I'm not black enough
What do I do if I'm too weird
I will deny me, I will survive me
I will be one of my pressured peers

I can beat you,I can beat you
I love aggression,I love aggression
I can reach you
Inside your dirty mind
But don't talk about...
Skin, skin, black skin, Sexuality
You're not wanted
Skin, skin, black skin, Sexuality
You're not wanted
You're not wanted 'cause you look too much like I do

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.

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.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
