You're my last breath
You're a breath of fresh air to me
I am empty
So tell me you care for me

You're the first thing
And the last thing on my mind
In your arms I feel
Sunshine

All the promise
A daydream yet to come
Time is upon us
Oh but the night is young

Flowers blossom
In the wintertime
In your arms I feel
Sunshine

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

You may find yourself
Out on a limb for me
Could you accept it as
A part of your destiny?

I give all I have
But it's not enough
And my patience's all shot
So I'm calling your bluff

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

And we gave it time
All eyes are on the clock
Time takes too much time
Please make the waiting stop

And the atmosphere is charged
In you I trust
And I feel no fear as I
Do as I must

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment last

Tempted by fate
And I won't hesitate
The time is now
And I can't blame it

I been in it too long
The time is now
And the time has gone
Let's make this moment last
And the night is young

The time is now
Let's make this moment last

Give up yourself unto the moment
The time is now
Give up yourself unto the moment
Let's make this moment, last

    To anyone who´s ever taken it; it´s pretty obvious this ong is about ecstasy :D

    "And we gave it time All eyes are on the clock Time takes too much time Please make the waiting stop

    And the atmosphere is charged In you I trust And I feel no fear as I Do as I must

    Give up yourself unto the moment The time is now Give up yourself unto the moment Let's make this moment last"

    You know the feeling waiting for the MDMA to kick in, then "the atmosphere is charged" yeah yeah I know, then you "do as I must" which is dancing you ass off, celebrating. Chorus is just selfexplanatory when you know it right :P

    I first heard this song when all my friends were trying to persuade me not to go out with this lad. Everytime i hear it it reminds me that life is for living in the moment and sometimes you have to take a risk. Fab song

Warren wanted a Beach Boys thing for this one, and Carl Wilson and Billy Hinsche came in, with Carl arranging the vocal parts. The other harmony vocalists (credited as the "Gentlemen Boys") were Jackson Browne, J.D. Souther, Zevon's longtime backers Waddy Wachtel and Jorge Calderon, and Linda Rondstadt/Stone Poneys guitarist Kenny Edwards.

He certainly did earn that reputation.

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
Audioslave
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.
