Oh, it only takes a second to fall into a fantasy
And oh, I'll tell you what you wanna hear, just know it isn't happening
Still, I don't know if I'm imagining
And oh, all these conversations circle round like a carousel
Oh, here we're going down again, this time I'm gonna wish you well
And watch as it gets spun into a memory

Would you even know a bad thing
When you're stuck inside a bad dream?
Would you even know a bad thing
When you're stuck inside a bad dream?
Would you even know, would you even know
Would you even know if I said, said "Wake up"

And oh, I guess you saw the light on, I must've been half asleep
And oh, these curtains I had gotten, you can see in perfectly
But even I don't know what is happening

Would you even know a good thing
When you're stuck inside a bad dream?
Would you even know a good thing
When you're stuck inside a bad dream?
Would you even know, would you even know
Would you even know if I said, said "Wake up"

And you seem like
Someone I could almost count on
Something's not right
Something I can put my finger on

Would you even know a bad thing
When you're stuck inside a bad dream?
Would you even know a bad thing
When you're stuck inside a bad dream?
Would you even know, would you even know
Would you even know if I said, said "Wake up"

Techno Ted

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”
