Paying dues and learning vices

When the big guns start to shooting
With the bullets of deception, honey
With a smile upon your face
You're going from second hand to almost new

Well I try to live life eye to eye, to eye to eye
But I say, I find it far too tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, gimme
You gimme gimme gimme temptation, baby
Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, gimme
You gimme gimme gimme temptation, baby

Sing along sing along baby
Sing along for the love of the children

And if this was to be true
Say I'd give all the tea in China
And maybe all the tulips
In Amsterdam

Well I try to live life eye to eye,
But I say, I find it far too tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, GIMME
You gimme gimme gimme temptation
Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, GIMME
You gimme gimme gimme temptation

Sing along baby, for the love of the children

First you make me move
Until I'm so damn close
Take me back again, take me back again
They'll say I'm mighty thankful
But it's much too easy, good god y'all
Paying dues and learning vices
But no, but no, but oh no
You won't waste my fucking spirit

My spirit

Waste my spirit

Yeah, show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme, GIMME
Cause you gimme, GIMME
You gimme gimme gimme temptation
Show me one more sign
Gimme one more time
Cause you gimme,
You gimme
You gimme gimme gimme temptation

I want peace, love and understanding
Peace, love and understanding
Peace, love and understanding
To the last

Sing along sing along baby
Sing along sing along baby
Sing along for the love of the children

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Well I try to live life eye to eye, to eye to eye
But I say, I find it far too tall, tall, tall, tall, tall

Say I find it far too tall

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?

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

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.
