us Adelaidians are such simple primates..
when it's cold outside, bucketing with rain..
dark, damp.. and otherwise miserable..
we're such wimps..
why go out? why do anything on the weekend?
hide away in our sheltered little abodes..
basking in the warmth of our home theatre / tv / xbox / playstation / wot'ever..
all this home entertainment really has something to answer for..
it's all kinda greedy really.. having all this fun to y'self..
makes me wonder.. we have no problems with sound levels INSIDE our houses..
yet residential idiots still complain about the sound OUTSIDE.. and shut down music venues like the Austral beergarden.. spoil everyone ELSE's fun.. YOOOOOU FUCKS!
really, we wanna be the ones making ALL the noise.. and not anyone else..
"it's all MINE MINE MINE!!"
silence the world, silence everything but your own 5.1 dolby surround bubble..
sounds greedy doesn't it?
sitting on buses with our headphones blocking out the world..
driving around in our cars in our stereo cocoon's..
still the same simple primates, frightened of what's around the corner..
the real world's OUT THERE!!
yet we all escape INSIDE..
(yeah.. like I can talk.. hahahaha)
remember kiddies.. we're living in a SOCIETY..
thus.. SOCIAL INTERRACTION..
we keep forgetting it..
we're blocking it more and more..
and on cold nights like this..
we're little cave monkeys..
ok.. sounds like I'm bitchin'..
(ok.. maybe I am.. hehehehe)
and on another night, I'd actually be taking this seriously..
but try as I might (somewhat apathetically)
tonight.. I couldn't give a fuck..
I'm one of them..
go shoot me..
I'm bubble boy..
still.. I really feel like I should be OUT THERE doing something..
sheesh.. I'd hate to be playing a gig tonight, who'd turn up?
too hot, too cold.. too wet, too dry.. too far.. too expensive..
duck and cover.. in the warmth of our denial.. everything's fine..
(shit.. that sounds like cool lyrics to something.. NOBODY GO STEALIN' THOSE.. ya hear!?)
