Take, take a look behind you
A little look inside you
'Cus all you've known has gone up and down

And break, I'm just a little bit angry
Yeah a little bit angry
'Cus all I've got is this shell I've found

I know, how long
Until you all fall down

All I've got is dead
You're not effective is all I'm fed
All I've got is dead
So for the time I'm gonna live in my head

Look, look at those who have told you
Those who have sold you
They pretend they're on higher ground
Then burn, I say, burn those that scold you
'Cus it was those before you
Who created this hell I've found

I know, how long
Until you all fall down

All I've got is dead
You're not effective is all I'm fed
All I've got is dead
So for the time I'm gonna live in my head

All I've got is dead
I'm not effective, no I'm not effective is all that I have ever been fed
All I've got, all I've got is dead
So for the time I'm gonna live in my head

From the time you get up, until the time you lay cold
Till the time you wake up in your life
You're already old

Does a life that breathes take time to heal your head?
It doesn't matter 'cause you're already dead
You're dead, you're dead, you're dead, you're dead
You're dead, you're dead, you're dead, you're dead
You're dead, you're dead, you're dead
You're dead
You're dead

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

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.
