(toy) Hello. Let's play some music. Follow me.

(Elmo) Lets make some noise with some pots and pans.

(toy) 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 4, 3, 2

Where did you go? Where could you be? I better find a way to write back home. I feel the flow of electricity. Better call before the fuse is blown.

(toy, in background) 5, 4, 3, 2

I am a little an, explosion. I am thats all I am explosion.

You once were told you once were free. I drew a map my destinations unknown. Morticians faint whenever you breathe. I'll see the light before I'm buried and bones

Starlight blinding. I will go away. Same old rigmarole. I will explode.

She's in my shadow. I avoid the street lights. She loves her sweater. Clothing is her birthright. She's heavy metal. Moshing in the moonlight. She writes me letters. Poetry keeps her up nights.

    Lyric Correction

    For those that don't know, this album was made entirely with sounds that toys make. That being said, I used to own the toy that says the "pots and pans" bit. It was an Elmo toy and I used to annoy the hell out of my roommates with it while I was drinking by pressing the button over and over.
    So the part where Elmo says "Make some noise with the pots and pans!" is actually the end of a parody of a song, and I'm punching myself for not remembering what song he was parodying. It was some 80's song. But the lyrics aren't "Let's make some noise with the pots and pans!" It's actually "Make some-make some noise with the pots and pans!" I know for a fact. I'm going to go into detail about this because I'm bored and drunk.

    So my roommates hate me for this obviously. It was a little Elmo doll (It was called rockin' elmo or something like that) with a button. Press the button and he sings part of a pre-programmed song. The one I remember is ABC by Jackson 5: press the button once, and he sings "ABC. it's as easy as 123. Or as simple as do re mi, abc, 123, you and me!" BUT if you press the button before he's finished, he starts over at the last measure of the song... okay, assume every time you see a "-" is when I press the button, it would go "Aaaaa Bee Cee, its-Aaaaa bee Cee, its as-Aaaa Bee-Aaaa Bee-Aaaa bee cee, it's as eas-Aaaa bee cee." and so on... but if you let it go on, it would go like this: "Aaaa bee cee, it's as easy as 123, as-123, as simple-123" So now every time you press the button, it skips back to "123" instead of the part that starts with "ABC."
    So if I haven't lost you yet, one of the songs the Elmo toy did was actually a parody, he changed the lyrics and for the love of GOD I can't remember which song it was, but it was a seriously cliche popular widely recognizable song from the 80's/90's. And the last verse was "Make some noise with the pots and pans!" Remember that the button skips back to the beginning of the verse, so the sound clip you hear is achieved by pressing the button right after Elmo says "Make some" resulting in "Make some-Make some noise with the pots and pans!"

    I don't know if I'm making sense to anyone else. I wish I still had the toy because I could show you exactly what I mean. If none of it makes sense to you, just listen to Elmo at the beginning and you can hear that he's saying "make some/make some" in the same pitch, not "let's make some."

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.

Cajun Girl
Little Feat
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”
