You thought this couldn't happen
but anything can
floored it in one direction
now it's driving you mad

you gave your heart with all it's passion
how could you know it would come crashin in

I won't desert you, Diane
won'y watch him hurt you, diane
don't let him take your pride
girl, it's no shame to cry
i'll keep your secret diana

you tasted holy water
and thought you were saved
you're not the devil's daughter
but you feel like his slave

althought his anger's never showing
the screams that no one heard
echoing in Diane

i won't desert you, diane
(time won't wait for lies or secrests)
won't watch him hurt you
diane (time won't wait for wait for wait for)
the tears run down your cheeks
now your shame runs too deep
i'll keep your secret diane

love will go on even though innocence dies
life will be yours again
though innocence dies

one broken heart feels like no other
don't turn your back on love, you will recover

time won't wait for lies or secrets
you'll be stronger for your weakness
time won't wait for lies i see
you walking in the dark
i see you waiting for the light
i see you watching for the door
i see you waiting for the light
but time won't wait for wait for wait for...

Word Alive, The
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.

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.
