I’ve got this f-f-frozen virus in my blood
Like my words are the warmest I could ever touch
I’ll limp west with the sun
And sleep the days under wide-eyed illusion
That beacon has seen me sleeping
Knows the ruse; the rouge, the spill that pools
To pull at my shoes and leave me to stand
Forever free, forever dead
Please stay alive
I can’t beg again with a back that’s bad as your eyes
Please stay alive
'Cause I can’t ask again with a tongue that’s worse than my...
Worse than my pride, oh!
Oh Angels, keep the windows open wide as English bathtubs
Running through miss Annie’s head
The one she cradled in CO
I know I shouldn’t talk so low of high life
When I’ve got no frame of reference
All the ones I found were broken with pictures torn out
And strewn asunder
Under summers laced with tracer fire
Copper pieces, fishing wire-oh!
Rolled in the covers
Above tumblers filled with vacation
Empty, it reeks of self-deprecation
Please stay alive
'Cause I can't beg again with a back that's bad as your...
As your... as my eyes
Please stay alive
'Cause I can't ask again with a tongue that's worse than my...
Please stay alive
I can't beg again with a back that's bad as your eyes
Please stay alive
I can't ask again with a tongue that's worse than my pride
Please stay alive
'Cause I can't beg again
I can't beg again

    If all you've heard is the album version of this song do a lil digging and you might stumble across a faster tempo version which is also quite nice.

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”

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."
