Anyone who ever loved - could look at me and know that I love you
Anyone who ever dreamed - could look at me and know I dream of you
Knowing I love you, so

Anyone who had a heart -would take me in his arms and love me too
You wouldn't really have a heart - and hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue - what am I to do?

Every time you go away - I always say this time it's goodbye dear
Loving you the way I do - I take you back
Without you I'd die dear - knowing I love you, so

Anyone who had a heart -would take me in his arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart - and hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue - what am I to do?

Knowing I love you, so - anyone who had a heart
Would take me in his arms and love me too
You couldn't really have a heart - and hurt me like you hurt me
And be so untrue
Anyone who had a heart
Would take me in his arms and always love me
Why won't you?

Anyone who had a heart would simply take me
In his arms and always love me -why won't you?, yeah
Would take me in his arms and always love me
Why won't you?
Anyone who had a heart

    Dionne Warwick originally sang this song. Luther Vandross also has a version. Bjork's version is very theatrical.

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.

Mountain Song
Jane's Addiction
Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrell gives Adam Reader some heartfelt insight into Jane’s Addiction's hard rock manifesto "Mountain Song", which was the second single from their revolutionary album Nothing's Shocking. Mountain song was first recorded in 1986 and appeared on the soundtrack to the film Dudes starring Jon Cryer. The version on Nothing's Shocking was re-recorded in 1988. "'Mountain Song' was actually about... I hate to say it but... drugs. Climbing this mountain and getting as high as you can, and then coming down that mountain," reveals Farrell. "What it feels to descend from the mountain top... not easy at all. The ascension is tough but exhilarating. Getting down is... it's a real bummer. Drugs is not for everybody obviously. For me, I wanted to experience the heights, and the lows come along with it." "There's a part - 'Cash in now honey, cash in Miss Smith.' Miss Smith is my Mother; our last name was Smith. Cashing in when she cashed in her life. So... she decided that, to her... at that time, she was desperate. Life wasn't worth it for her, that was her opinion. Some people think, never take your life, and some people find that their life isn't worth living. She was in love with my Dad, and my Dad was not faithful to her, and it broke her heart. She was very desperate and she did something that I know she regrets."
