Wicked Songs: Boredom by The Drones

OK, I can’t just keep posting lists of all my shitty CD’s. So when all else fails: go to The Drones and surprise they have a new video out today which is the most WTF video clip they have made!


 The above image popped up on facebook a few weeks ago, I was what the hell they’re doing now? Making a new video promo clip off course is the answer. Ask a silly question and get a silly…

Boredom Lyrics

the ‘burbs are growing like a fingernail
slower than the dullest pain
i want the hunger and cold of the knights of old
when there was blood up to the Himalayas
i’m saying farewell to the welfare state
the only comfort is a caliphate
i’m guessing war sure beats any old north shore beach
or any western suburb single player
i’m looking for the type of test
a cataclysm make me beat my chest
man any kinda “ism” beats a singing competition
on a tv fat with gnash and wail
they got me singing in a different scale
don’t wanna push no pram
or join a bikie gang
or flip a burger for the infidel
no one ever lives to tell
what’s at the bottom of an oil well
boredom boredom
i’m gonna take a pic down there
put my index finger in the air
boredom boredom
gonna tag it with my user name
and you can flag it for it’s guts and brains
got me a lawyer in the ACT
got me the fuck outta the PNG
i’m telling y’all failed states they ain’t exactly great
but neither’s prison in the Bismarck Sea
terra’s firma in the southern lands
shock and awe is all for stretch humvees
the casual exhibition of a recent acquisition’s
all the intervention they got planned
i miss the hustle of the Baghdad days
it weren’t a shit hole in the late ’80s
that thing with W, don’t let it trouble you
it’s all a distant hen’s night anyway
i hear ‘em screaming for a Chippendale
that looks like Eminem, it must be 2am
and it’s like nothing here is even real
you’re just so lucky that you get to feel
boredom boredom
i didn’t come here for the thrills and spills
i just like the way i don’t get killed
boredom boredom
you get the house, land, bang the whole biz
if you can just remember where it is
boredom boredom
don’t fucking tell me that you ain’t got room
you ever really seen a baby boom?
boredom boredom
man i was born in the cradle of civilisation
and i plan on dying in it’s tomb.

Do you think they must have been bored? I just have to included this second clip here from an old English 90’s movie by Mike Leigh called Naked starring David Thewlis as Johnny. The next line which is missing in this little bit but he asks her a question “How’s it all going for you, then?” and she answers but saying “It’s all a bit boring really”.
