i'll make it rain down on me, the water makes me feel so free, all you seem to be, is content with your reality, what you need is a place to stay, without all those pictures and pictures / i wish i could make him pay, but he's bought with those singles and singles / and oh to live another day, with this grace that turns to gray, so have mercy on my future now, your humor seems to me so low brow. your voice is at a scream, but i dont hear a thing. be careful what you leave by the wayside, you will cease the need to dream, and all of those you hold dear in life, will cut you up and make you bleed, bleed that blood of green / you will cease the need to dream / cease to dream

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.

Overall about difficult moments of disappointment and vulnerability. Having hope and longing, while remaining optimistic for the future. Encourages the belief that with each new morning there is a chance for things to improve. The chorus offers a glimmer of optimism and a chance at a resolution and redemption in the future. Captures the rollercoaster of emotions of feeling lost while loving someone who is not there for you, feeling let down and abandoned while waiting for a lover. Lost with no direction, "Now I'm up in the air with the rain in my hair, Nowhere to go, I can go anywhere" The bridge shows signs of longing and a plea for companionship. The Lyrics express a desire for authentic connection and the importance of Loving someone just as they are. "Just in passing, I'm not asking. That you be anyone but you”
