Gonna blame it on the moon
Didn't want to fall in love again, so soon
I was fine, feelin' strong
Didn't want to fall in love with anyone

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt
I'll blame it on the moon
'Cause it's not my fault
I didn't think that this would happen so soon
So I'll blame it on the moon

I was happy to be free
Didn't think I'd give myself so easily
Guilty feelings in the night
As I wonder, is it wrong to feel so right?

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt
I'll blame it on the moon
'Cause it's not my fault
I didn't think that this would happen so soon
So I'll blame it on the moon

Now that it's gone too far to call for a halt
I'll blame it on the moon
'Cause it's not my fault
I didn't think that this would happen so soon
So I'll blame it on the moon
So I'll blame it on the moon

    This song to me is about falling in love with someone and not being able to get them out of your mind no matter what.

    For me this song is about someone who has ended a relationship, and doesn't want to fell in love again at least not for now. But has now falling very much in love with someone, and can't stop thinking about that person.

    Another great one from Mike Batt. (For his other huge hit check out 'Closest Thing To Crazy' also off of Katie's Call Off The Search.) Very cinematic with an almost throw-back seventies feel with the lovely orchestra. Definitely a favourite. Not a lot like it these days!

    I agree in that it seems to be the thoughts of the narrator having fallen madly and unexpectedly. So much emotion and exposition. She won't own up to the way she's feeling and is rather satisfied to leave it at the surface of things and just 'blame it on the moon' -- an external stimulus outside of her control. I love it.

So this has been.my favorite song of OTEP's since it came out in 2004, and I always thought it was a song about a child's narrative of suffering in an abusive Christian home. But now that I am revisiting the lyrics, I am seeing something totally new. This song could be gospel of John but from the perspective of Jesus. Jesus was NOT having a good time up to and during the crucifixion. Everyone in the known world at the time looked to him with fear, admiration or disgust and he was constantly being asked questions. He spoke in "verses, prophesies and curses". He had made an enemy of the state, and believed the world was increasingly wicked and fallen from grace, or that he was in the "mouth of madness". The spine of atlas is the structure that allows the titan to hold the world up. Jesus challenged the state and in doing so became a celebrated resistance figure. It also made him public enemy #1. All of this happened simply because he was doing his thing, not because of any agenda he had or strategy. And then he gets scourged (storm of thorns) There are some plot holes here but I think it's an interesting interpretation.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

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”
