It takes a worried man
To sing a worried song
It takes a worried man
To sing a worried song
It takes a worried man
To sing a worried song
I'm worried now,
But I won't be worried long

Got myself a Cadillac,
Thirty dollars down
Got myself a brand new house
Five miles out of town
Got myself a gal named Sue,
Treats me really fine
Yes, she's my baby
And I love her all the time

It takes a worried, worried man to sing a worried, worried song
It takes a worried, worried man to sing a worried, worried song
It takes a worried man
To sing a worried song
I'm worried now,
But I won't be worried long

I've been away on a bus'ness trip,
Travlin' all around
I've got a gal and her name is Sue,
Prettiest gal in town
She sets my mind to worryin'
Ev'ry time I'm gone
I'll be home tonight
So I won't be worried long

It takes a worried man to
Sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to
Sing a worried song
It takes a worried man to sing a worried song
I'm worried now,
But I won't be worried long

Well, Bobby's in the living room,
Holding hands with Sue
Nickie's at that big front door,
'Bout to come on thru
Well, I'm here in the closet
Oh, lord what shall I do?
We're worried now
But we won't be worried long

It takes a worried man
To sing a worried song
It takes a worried man
To sing a worried song
It takes a worried man
To sing a worried song
I'm worried now,
But I won't be worried long

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.

Fast Car
Tracy Chapman
"Fast car" is kind of a continuation of Bruce Springsteen's "Born to Run." It has all the clawing your way to a better life, but in this case the protagonist never makes it with her love; in fact she is dragged back down by him. There is still an amazing amount of hope and will in the lyrics; and the lyrics themselve rank and easy five. If only music was stronger it would be one of those great radio songs that you hear once a week 20 years after it was released. The imagery is almost tear-jerking ("City lights lay out before us", "Speeds so fast felt like I was drunk"), and the idea of starting from nothing and just driving and working and denigrating yourself for a chance at being just above poverty, then losing in the end is just painful and inspiring at the same time.
