BULLSHIT TIME
(written 2018/recorded 2018)
contains a quotation from requiem in d minor, KV 626
by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart/1756-1791
lyrics inspired by "The Theory Of The Leisure Class"
by Thorstein Veblen/1857-1929
("unproductive consumption of goods is honourable,
primarily as a mark of prowess and a perquisite of human dignity
secondarily it becomes substantially honourable to itself,
especially the consumption of the more desirable things")



oh my god its the
oh my god its the

lackadaisically
dave the ape flatulates
into his million dollar sofa

lackadaisically
dave the ape throws away
a bag of crisps and a can of lager

lackadaisically
dave the ape watches a
random football game recording

lackadaisically
dave the ape drives around
his fortress and he greets the guards

unproductive expenditure of time
a mark of prowess and a perquisite of human dignity
watch the clock and do the time
show your wealth by way of otiosity

oh my god its the same old shit
same old shit
same old shit
its the bullshit time

how much bullshit time
how many resources
wasted all in all by
far too many people

serendipitously
dave the ape can afford
to amble like a braggadocian

serendipitously
dave the ape is one brave
poster boy of the leisure class

serendipitously
dave the ape does pursue
a lot of guilty pleasures as we all do

serendipitously
dave the ape gives a shit
bout the respective carbon footprint

the same old shit keeps getting crappier
the bullshit time keeps getting more and more
some use their bullshit time to go to war
some use their bullshit time to just do drugs

oh my god its the same old shit
same old shit
same old shit
its the bullshit time

dave the apes the
last man on earth
but he does not know by now, his
species has digged its own grave
its their own fault

while all the others kick the bucket
while all the others multiply
while everything goes down the drain
dave the ape fritters away his afternoon

its the same old shit
same old shit
same old shit
its the bullshit time

dissuasively
dave the ape watches a
cockfight that makes him want to kill someone

dissuasively
dave the ape goes abroad
to buy some things and rape some prostitutes

dissuasively
dave the ape dumps waste oil
into a lake in a nature reserve

dissuasively
dave the ape ignites a
forest fire to watch the wildlife burn
