Set your dreams where nobody hides
Give your tears to the tide
No time
No time

There's no end, there is no goodbye
Disappear with night
No time
No time
No time
No time
No time

    This song is ephemeral to me. I think it talks about the infinite and death.

    It sounds to me like a long distance relationship. One has to wait for the other, but they know for sure they will see each other at some point in time. In no time at all.

    My Opinion

    I think this song means that you have to put away all your fears to achieve what you want in life because there is, 'no time'.

    I feel like it means to not dwell on life and it's mistakes because everyone has to live, everyone has a story. Everything that's happening and everything that's going to happen, there is no stopping it. There's no time to change the past or predict the future, so live.

    Song Meaning

    It is an utterly wonderful piece of music which can be interpreted and resonate with your personal way and that is the reason why it is so beautiful. But if you really care what the creator wants to express, pls remember Anthony G. particularly stressed this album as a record and reflection of himself and his course of making music. As to Midnight City. I think it is rather a reflection on the road of making music. It is not an easy dream to pursuit obviously. So many hardship , frustration but the at same time too much anticipation motivation, and hope from the orgastic future. Give the background at that time he came to LA pursuing his dream The city is the place where he paid too much for this dream to come true. This intimacy with the city he thrives is too strong to him it is too special place to him.

    Wait is also my favorite. this music lifts my emotion to the highest level of intensity i have ever experienced. Thank you M83. to let that happen

    This song for me was an unexpected journey. It was just posted on someone's blog, I clicked play not even knowing the band, and I was transported. Sublimely and beautiful in an otherworldly way.

    My Interpretation

    I think this song is about not being able to say good-bye to someone you love and feeling sad because you didn't get the chance, but knowing that eventually you'll meet or see them again since it's a dream/goal to be with them ("set your dreams where nobody hides").

    Not being able to say good-bye part is shown in the lines,"there is no good-bye, disappear with the night, no time".

    The sad part possibly comes in where it says, "give your tears to the tide". It could mean that they were consumed by grief (tide takes over) or that they decided not to grieve anymore because they would see their loved one again.

Word Alive, The
This song is def a twin to "Unfair" (a song she has been quoted as saying is about falling in love with someone who is already in a relationship) so it is presumably about the same person. Given the references to buying an apartment and not being able to see her love interest "after tonight," it's most likely that she's moving away and she'll "wait a day to break the bad news" (i.e. notifying him that she's leaving once she's already gone). And, of course, the fact that she sees in him a fellow "idealist" and "dreamer" (terms commonly given to people with the INFP personality on the Myers–Briggs Type Indicator (MBTI)) portends that she'll always be left wondering if they would've been perfect together.

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.
