Twist, twist, twist for ice cream
Come on, dance, misdirection
You can take new nicks for blue jeans
But it's three, or it's dead

We are trapped, keep it violent
I need tape for perfection
The most bright, I'm assuming
Love the smell of your bath

Mr., you're on fire Mr.
No sir, I'm okay
Mr., you're on fire Mr.
No sir, I'm okay
Mr., you're on fire Mr.
No sir, I'm okay
Mr., you're on fire Mr.
No sir, I'm okay

    Their cover of this is odd, sounds kind of like Crystal Castles, but not quite as glitchy.

    SUCH AN AMAZING COVER OF AN EVEN MORE AMAZING SONG.

    Props to whoever knows what band they covered with this.

    P.S. It's 'Mr. You're On Fire Mr." Fuck that whole You Are shit.

Classic love story true to his western tx roots. One of my favorites as a story, but I think there are alot of songs that are amazing not even listed on this site. I guess I should figure out how to add them, because I have about 8 REK cd's.

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
Audioslave
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.

Standing On The Edge Of Summer
Thursday
In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.
