Shut your eyes,
See the future's distant shore
March ahead
More enlightened than before
And there's sure to be bumps
And distractions
But I know we'll get through
There will be me, there will be you
There will be a way
Unresolved repercussions from your life
Fortified with the vitriol of strife
And you can be gridlocked by predictions,
But you're wise grab the prize
Then revise, realize
There will be a way
Hey, ho
And I don't know where we are going
But we're here on this ride
And we'll stand side by side
All along the way
Follow me to the future's distant shore
Vagary needn't haunt us anymore
And now it's time to set the agenda,
Learn the past, make it last
Share the wealth, hold your fire,
Conserve life, make it right
Kill the hate, negotiate
There will be a way
There will be a way
There will be a way

    This song is like a message of encouragement to people to just keep fighting for what they believe, and keep faith that this world will get better if you keep working to improve it.

    A very very underrated song by BR. The message has a lot of meaning to it that the first time I heard:

    And now it's time to set the agenda, Learn the past, make it last Share the wealth, hold your fire, conserve life, make it right kill the hate, negotiate There will be a wayyyyy!!!

    I got goosebumps. The sound my not be so great but the lyrics are 10x more powerful. The song is basically a call to action, with the comforting thought that there will be a way of doing it.

Like a lot of the other comments are saying, I think this mainly about voyeurism. If the song was about his girlfriend, then why would he use the word spy. If you are a spy it means you shouldn't be caught, that is kind of the whole point, and if you are a voyeur, the whole point of the pleasure you get from it, is the fact that the other people don't know you are watching them. See a bit of a connection there?

Both as a standalone and as part of the DSOTS album, you can take this lyric as read. As a matter of public record, Jourgensen's drug intake was legendary even in the 1980s. By the late 90s, in his own words, he was grappling with massive addiction issues and had lost almost everything: friends, spouse, money and had nearly died more than once. "Dark Side of the Spoon" is a both funny & sad title for an album made by a musical genius who was losing the plot; and this song is a message to his fans & friends saying he knows it. It's painful to listen to so I'm glad the "Keith Richards of industrial metals" wised up and cleaned up. Well done sir.

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.
