Well hello here's looking at you
A lovely tan, make sure they see you
A vintage car made by no one knows
Dual fins, I said masters, didn't you know

Wind me up and pull my string
But remember one small thing
Why I can see that your pulled asides
And you act like your really hard
But, your a Beverly Hills star
Your a Beverly Hills star
Wowa, don't knock it till you got it
Wowa, don't knock it till you got it

Things at breakfast so tried and true
Always a table never laughed at you
A million five would be really fab
And then it would be good about the tab
A movie deal and another script
How 'bout a cowboy shooting from the hip
Terrible man, terrible names big, big limousine is the thing

Wind me up and pull my string
But remember one small thing
Why I can see that your pulled asides
And you act like your really hard
But, your a Beverly Hills star
Your a Beverly Hills star
You just don't know a two step
Like a bull in a china shop
Your a Beverly Hills star
Your a Beverly Hills star
Wowa, don't knock it till you got it
Wowa, don't knock it till you got it
Don't knock it

Wind me up and pull my string
But remember one small thing
Why I can see that your pulled asides
And you act like your really hard
But, your a Beverly Hills star
Your a Beverly Hills star
You just don't know a two step
Like a bull in a china shop
Your a Beverly Hills star
Your a Beverly Hills star
Wowa, don't knock it till you got it
Wowa, don't knock it till you got it

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

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.
