You're everywhere I've seen you bleed
High in my home
I watch you and miss you all day long
You keep me lying playing games with your pet brain
I know why you told me you had the right to!

I've always thought this train was just some
Phase but you ride on
You want me to ride around too

Fill your ego and bring you every inch of the way
I know why you need to kill all the pain there

Sympathize with me cause here I am
I am rolling on my head
Like a child you move so quickly
To touch the flame
You burn the vein goodnight

All along you run into mirrors
Everything you do is coming fast
Getting strong on the wrong from the money
Driving in your head you're in the train

Your only need in life is flying in the wind, I know
Why you told me it was your right to

You tell me to look and watch you go down in
Your vein, I know why,
To shock me
Your time for reaching

You're always slipping, slidding deeper when you
Breathe
I walk by
You force me to walk around you

Until the phone rings
Asking how much do you need
You tremble on
As if your tricks have been heard before

Sympathize with me cause here I am
I am rolling on my head
Like a child you move so quickly
To touch the flame
You burn the pain goodnight

As you glide through the river
Everyone just looks as if you're dead
If I had the strength of ten men
I'd pull your arms out and stick them on your
Head in pieces!!!

You drown me white washed crippled inside
Me my love
Is shoot to shame
Your right from wrong
It's emotion today
Release me life of no matter
My life is here I will overcome
Your life away
But your life will roll
Your life away
But your life will roll
Your life away
But your life will roll
Your life your way
But your life will roll

Your life your way
Your life your way
You like it

Oh brother
Brother can I see you now my brother
It's been to long since you've been away
Brother
You're driving hard to get away brother
I hope you've not gone too far

    A rare turn for Tim DeLaughter, this song expresses explicit anger at a former friend he lost to drug addiction. He slowly watched the friend he once knew fade from existence as the heroin consumed the former comrade.

    A rare turn for Tim DeLaughter, this song expresses explicit anger at a former friend he lost to drug addiction. He slowly watched the friend he once knew fade from existence as the heroin consumed the former comrade. Some of the lyrics indicate that the friendship ended when Tim came to a crossroads: he could have followed down the same path, but chose not to. "Release me, life of no matter. My Life is here: I will overcome."

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.

In regards to the meaning of this song: Before a live performance on the EP Five Stories Falling, Geoff states “It’s about the last time I went to visit my grandmother in Columbus, and I saw that she was dying and it was the last time I was going to see her. It is about realizing how young you are, but how quickly you can go.” That’s the thing about Geoff and his sublime poetry, you think it’s about one thing, but really it’s about something entirely different. But the lyrics are still universal and omnipresent, ubiquitous, even. So relatable. That’s one thing I love about this band. I also love their live performances, raw energy and Geoff’s beautiful, imperfectly perfect vocals. His voice soothes my aching soul.

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”
