During a sweetened time
There is nothing that is definite
I fear the bell that declares tomorrow

In the pile of ashes in my heart
I run down the middle of the staircase
My glass slippers don't give me any support

This piercing cold voice
Spins lies in a beautiful language
I was looking at the mirror
As I kept dancing in this fake dress

The clock that points at 12
Will unmask your magic for what it is- How that will hurt!
Everything once vibrant pales in color
It all starts to blur as its beauty is drained away

During a sweetened time
I cling to an uncertain voice
I'm afraid of what tomorrow will bring

In the pile of ashes in my heart
The excessively fragile glass slippers break
And the shattered remains pierce my skin

Like my slippers, my breaking heart
Is projected as it unravels and distorts
I was looking at the mirror
As I forgot the meaning of "Happiness"

The clock that points at 12
Will unmask your magic for what it- How that will hurt!
From the pale colors I can see
Is everything that sparkled going to disappear?

The clock that points at 12
Will unmask your magic for what it is- How that will hurt!
Goodbye what I was seeing all
Must have been a happy fantasy..

The clock that points at 12
Will unmask your magic for what it is- How that will hurt!
Everything once vibrant pales in color
It all starts to blur as its beauty is drained away..

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.

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.

I think much like another song “Anti-Matter” (that's also on the same album as this song), this one is also is inspired by a horrifying van crash the band experienced on Nov 3, 2022. This, much like the other track, sounds like it's an extension what they shared while huddled in the wreckage, as they helped frontman Garrett Russell stem the bleeding from his head wound while he was under the temporary effects of a concussion. The track speaks of where the mind goes at the most desperate & desolate of times, when it just about slips away to all but disconnect itself, and the aftermath.
