Media I Gave You All the Best Years of my Life

I dug the Birthday Party, idolized Nick Cave
Evangelized their music, converted all my mates
The revolution fizzled, working is my fate
They've sold us Bad Seeds records ever since on Triple-J

Media I gave you all the best years of my life
Facebook, MySpace, Mess and Noise for several hours a night
I spend my time convincing folk to pay rock stars attention
I can't afford to rent a room for my record collection

I go to arthouse cinemas several nights a week
I blog about the classics and buy the DVDs
Directors don't know who I am, or care that I exist
But I defend their work for hours at parties when I'm pissed

Media I gave you all the best years of my life
I tell the world about you on social network sites
When I'm not consuming you, I'm telling others to
And wishing I could hang around the people who make you


from Bohemian Suburb Rhapsody, released March 1, 2010
