about

The consumer dream as fairytale - in the modern setting the romance is lost.

lyrics

Whatever happened to being poor, but happy
Is it just fairytale propaganda?

The princess in her tower hasn't got long hair
She wants a modelling deal and a silicon pair
Of breasts implausible for her skeletal frame
Built on a cocaine habit and a promise of fame

The white knight abandonned his trusty steed
His Burberry livery demonstrating the need
For power and respect where none have been earned
Chasing the dragon he crashed, withered and burned.

Chorus:
Whatever happened to being poor, but happy
Is it just fairytale propaganda?
Whatever happened to being free and easy
Yes, it's fairytale propaganda?


The King has no stature, the old Duke's not grand
They've handed over power to a foreign land
Where branding and bureocracy feed corporate gain
And political correctness stops us questioning their reign.

The wise old man's lambasted for his crazy ideas
Centuries of progress still marred by old fears
Of divine retribution or some terrorist bomb
His intellect is the property of some big dot-com.

~Chorus~

Fairy Godmother's going to town
Dreaming up celebrities, then tearing them down
to sink in the mire of the latest trends
living in the eye of the camera lens.

~Chorus~

about

The Lunacy Board Wien, Austria

Somewhere between progressive/post-rock and skiffle lies 'The Lunacy Board'. Sometimes lyrically cutting, sometimes instrumental, but always challenging and raw.
