You know, you got it now
Is that yourself or nothing at all
Oh, you think you live
Well, how can you, you're stuck in four walls

If you gotta go
You better live your life before you pass away
Don't waste a day
All your life
You've been locked in you room you've never had a chance to roam
Away from home

So, you come and go
Well good day, don't waste anytime
Oh, your life today
It's all familiar, soon you will find

If you gotta go
You better live your life before you pass away
Don't waste a day
All your life
You've been locked in you room you've never had a chance to roam
Away from home

Live, live, live, live
Live, live, live, live

Now, do what you want
Or where you want, it's all up to you
Ooh, you like the room
It's nice to do what you wanna do

If you gotta go
You better live your life before you pass away
Don't waste a day
All your life
You've been locked in you room you've never had a chance to roam
Away from home

If you know by now
What life's about, go on now and live
And if you don't know how
It's not so hard, just let go and live

If you gotta go
You better live your life before you pass away
Don't waste a day
All your life
You've been locked in you room you've never had a chance to roam
Away from home

Live, live, live, live
Live, live, live, live

This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.
