Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh

After all I've done for you

This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, I must get away
This time, you've gone too far (yeah, yeah)
This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, you've got to pay
This time, you've gone too far

You runnin 'round with those nasty hoes
How long did you think I could take this?
He says to me, "that's the way life goes"
How long did you think I could take this?

I should have known
Oh, you weren't for real
But my love for you kept on strong
You better know you're gonna miss my love
And now you know that I'm not still holdin' on
That's right, all of my friends say

This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, I must get away
This time, you've gone too far (yeah, yeah)
This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, you've got to pay
This time, you've gone too far

You've played the game
But you played yourself
Oh boy, take a look at who's sorry now
You're not the same
Oh, how you have changed
So now look at you, it's a damn shame

I don't care if I never ever see your face again
You broke my heart one too many times, oh
You think that I'm, I'm just not that strong
My bags are packed, watch me walk right through that door

This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, I must get away
This time, you've gone too far (really gone too far)
This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, you've got to pay (you have got to pay)
This time, you've gone too far

Walkin 'round with nasty hoes
Tellin' me that's the way life goes
No, baby you've gone way too far
Said to me that I'm not that strong
Watch me walk right through that door
Oh, oh, yeah, yeah

This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, I must get away
This time, you've gone too far (really gone too far)
This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, you've got to pay
This time, you've gone too far

This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, I must get away
This time, you've gone too far (really gone, really gone too far)
This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, you've got to pay
This time, you've gone too far

Ah, gone too far
Ah, gone too far
Ah, gone too, ah, gone too, ah, gone too far

This time, I'm not gonna stay
This time, I must get away
This time, you've gone too far (ah, gone too far)
This time, I'm not gonna stay (ah, gone too far)
This time, you've got to pay (ah, gone too far)
This time, you've gone too far
(Ah, gone too, ah, gone too, ah, gone too far)

You're dismissed

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.

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”
