about

Everything is beautiful and everywhere hurts.
Everyone's a victim.
Everything is boring.

DAVID BORING’s debut studio album is titled “Unnatural Objects and Their Humans”. Structured to tell a sequence of stories representing the oppressed young humans in this slowly decaying modern world, The album builds on three main arcs - “The Machine”, “Unnatural Objects” and “Their Humans”.

“The Machine” is the womb that breeds, governs and drives the dystopia that slowly takes form. The womb provides.
“Unnatural objects” denotes the normalized absurdities that blossomed under a cheerfully toxic environment.
“Their Humans” looks dispassionately at a series of (objectified) protagonists and their futile attempts to survive.

The three arcs intertwine to form a 12-act piece that paints a violently nihilistic picture, mapping the band's intricate psyche in response to the gentle malice of the modern world.

The album is presented in the form of a hardcover booklet, meticulously put together by the band themselves. Filled with graphical keynotes and texts, it serves as a manual that narrates and amplifies the band's controlled insanity.

Track Name: Chapter 0
This is not about being wild,
or breaking free,
or rebelling
Or searching for redemptions for the humanity
This is about a heavy compromise
To a world that is slowly dying
To an unsustainable future
To all the goodness we fake
To all the values we pretend to believe
Juggling life with an assembled form of dream
Juggling guilt with pleasure
Killing animals without dirtying your hands
Committing crime without the heinous consequences
Cooking in intervals of heat and artificial air we pump into our surroundings
Manufacturing sugary falsehood to make our life seem more worthwhile
Slowly coming to terms to a reality we are too weak and distracted to change
Bathing in a hedonistic joy
watching as the world’s destroyed

This is not a healthy world
This is not
Track Name: Smog
Are we there yet?
No

What’s the day
What’s the time

Deadly silence
Smokey skies

Hell broke loose
The crowd goes wild

Waxy faces
Eyes grow wide

His body is his armour
So frail and so thin
They push and shove and beat and poke but still they cannot win


(I’ll rip you to pieces) You break my fingers
(You rip me to pieces) You break my bones
(I’ll rip you to pieces) You pull the trigger
(You rip me to pieces) Our dear protector

(I’ll rip you to pieces) Your ugly grimace
(You rip me to pieces) Your evil sneer
(I’ll rip you to pieces) We flirt with madness
(You rip me to pieces) The end is near


There's no hope No redemption
(Crack my skull)
Mother please don't cry
There's is a better world for us out there
Can you see it? Or is it just me?
(And you'll be pleased)

A vague sense of unease that the gruesome climax of my life
(Crack my skull)
Was being rehearsed years in advance
(In the name of peace)

Be my friend walk me out of this plight
(Crack my skull)
Walking along the sea I see the tents and the people they're all
They're all smiling at me
(And I'm released)

Out of nowhere we became the traitor
(Crack my skull)
This is an army with no clear leader
(And make me the beast)
Track Name: Brian Emo
I
Brian walks home and cries into a pillow
Boiling in anger then softening in sorrow
Waking up next day carry on with fear
Shuffling along in the whiteness of evil

He was told that hope would keep him sane
But its hope that gives him all the pain
There are screams you hear and screams you don’t
The world is quiet but it isn’t kind
They push for an answer but the question is blind

And as an instinct to survive
He finds a new way to exist
The more poison pours out from his wounds
The brighter he shines
Until all his cuts become unstoppable fountains
Pouring out not pain but immense pleasure
He’s become one of his kind

II
You created me
out of confusion, raw panic, disease-ridden thoughts
I am born out of fear and loathing

I had been here, a small part of you
Vulnerable like a balled up infant
But now I’m growing stronger
and stronger
and stronger

I am the knife you swing
I am the screams you cry
I am the blood you shed
I am what helps you survive

I’m in the drugs you take
I’m in the pain you feel
I’m in the air you breathe
I am what keeps you alive

I am invisible
I am undeniable
I am uncontrollable
I am inside, inside!

I am not one of them
I will be all of them
I will be everywhere
I will spread like a fire

to end your torture to earn your life
Run! Run! Run!

It’s burning up your legs, your thighs, your chest,
your head, your hair, your face, your whole-
consume me!

III
Sickly sweet toxic all pouring out of my system
Deformed, unusual, tragic, alive

I warned you about what I could do to you
I warned you about what I could do

I am free from the alien loneliness
I am free from your endless prejudice
I am free from unwanted affections
I am free from a crooked box you called family
I am free
Track Name: Machine#1
Nothing ever happens and it was boring

You paint your face to hide your sorrow
Embrace yet another tomorrow

Flower dies
Planes fall off the sky
Children lie
You make your only love cry

Unwilling piece of art
we fall into an
Unwilling piece of art
we work for an
Unwilling piece of art
they push me to an
Unwilling piece of art
we end up in a

Nothing ever happens and it was boring

Unwilling piece of art
we fall into an
Unwilling piece of art
we work for an
Unwilling piece of art
they push me to an
Unwilling piece of art
we end up in a?

You paint your face to hide your sorrow
Embrace yet another tomorrow

It takes cowardice to push on through this game
It takes madness to stay sane
Track Name: Loosefuck
Curse me with your sour logic
Bathe me in your dirty gaze
Throw at me your rotten wisdom
Celebrate your dying grace
Angry at a growing promise
Worry that you’re left behind
Jealous of a brighter future
Bitter pride to your own kind
Staring at your thinning hair
Wondering why they do not care
Half your life you’re a sad disgrace and
Now you see yourself as the master race

I like the way you vote for lies
I like how you have rapey eyes
I like the way you take the creds
While I pay for your fucking meds
I like the way you think you rule
I like you hating all I do
I like the fact you will be dead
and fade and rot and nameless very soon

(Flaunt your bad brain
Flaunt your bad teeth
Flaunt your bad taste
Flaunt your bad breath)

Spitting fire
Spreading hate
Encourage corruption!
Encourage corruption!
Track Name: Men
Kill time till the end arrives

You keep your rotting shell as human
with flesh and bones no more than a tasteless skin
Along it comes the casual evil
you wash your sins in a pool of lukewarm mess
To save yourself from the daily monster
you turn to a bland belief to feel complete
A cloud of dirty buzzing shadows
mutates and takes the form of an ugly (monster)

MUTATING

Tell me what to do and (I’ll do it)
Guide me how to feel (and I’ll pursue it)
Learn your ways through a rotten system
You won’t smell the stench when you’re swimming in the vomit
Clinging on your face your hair your clothes
your neck your mouth they numb your senses
Moving in packs like dust like dirt
like a storm like plague like an endemic pollution

Dance dance dance
While they glorify evil
While the innocent dies
As we taint our conscience
As our mothers cry
As we grow in number
As we swarm the sky
As they molest our children
As we start to comply
As sickness takes over
Now we endorse in crime
As we settle into monsters
Now we will never die

(Do you register anything happening around you)
(If they want you blind will you give up your sight)

Rotten food you’re good for me
Filthy air you’re good for me
Burning flesh you’re good for me
Drowning world you’re good for me
Everything is good for me
Everything is good for me
And what do I do now
I don’t want to be the only one awake

Now you play human

They call you human

You feel
Happy
Hopeful
Glorious
Delusional
Brain dead
Track Name: Machine#2
I know the world is supposed to end
And at one point we will all burn to our roots
But why is it taking so long
I've got a million things I can regret upon

(Pour your life into an endless void
you think you have a soul?)

Shards of crystals
Slice into your eyes
You're buried in concrete
As they multiply

Greasy ocean, acid sky
Fueled upon your glowing lies (Let there be light)

Now stop
And look upon the world (Let there be life)

Remains of what will never last
Remind you of a better past
Satisfy more petty needs
With pornographic speed

And the story goes: (MACHINE MARCHING)

Now you kneel and shiver

Noticed there's a crack and at first you're blind
When the crack grows bigger you block it with lies
Now the crack is leaking and it hurts your pride
But when it's no longer a crack it's your time to die
(Will we be fine?)

Enjoy the sour wind caress your skin
Black and blue and pink and yellow
It's the blend of waste that fuels your tomorrow
Pumping toxic out, disappear from sight
But they soon become what you breath and swallow
Swallow! (Will we be fine?)

You set off a fire to clear what's going in your way
but your creations lost patience
its soon your time to pay
(It won't be fine)

Escalate your lie
try to buy yourself precious time
on a ball of dying rock
pointlessly fall through space

You escalate your lie
try to buy yourself precious time
on a ball of dying rock
pointlessly slide through time

Return your debt
Surrender your life
The great fire burn
The great flood drown
Your glory your gold your future your hopes
no more than fragments in the ground

You can wish for a miracle
(What were young are now growing old)
You can find more ways to pass the time
(Your running blood is growing cold)
But the end is near its our fault my dear
(Your blood grows cold)
Now you're desperately trying to rewind
(Your blood grows cold)
Track Name: Susie Exciting
Susie’s bed with metal frame
Lures you into her evil games
Susie with a razor blade
Promise you’ll see her everyday
Susie with the ugly scars
She laughs and says she’s gone too far
“Whatever I do it isn’t bad
You can’t die again if you’re already dead"

Stay up till the morning
Crying whilst she’s crawling
Slash up all her paintings
Killing off her cravings
Thrashing in her dream
Violently she screams
What she says-
What do you live for
Why you even bother
Thought you were my angel

Running in a distance
Running is her sentence
Running through the shadows
With nowhere good to go
Looking like a flower
Falling off a tower
lower and lower
You think its all a dream
(Its not a dream)

Susie Exciting
Track Name: I Can't
You said
You've tried
You just can't comprehend
What is
That thing
That we're trying to defend
I'm not
Surprised
If there's nothing we could mend
No one
Can decide
How is this going to end

It's in my hot blood
An angst that could flood
But drenched in wet mud
Suffocates a blooming bud

I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't do it anymore
I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't All my limbs are worn and sore
I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't I'm helpless after all
But I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't I can't I can’t I can’t

(You see it come / You see it go /
You see it bright, keen and unnatural /
You touch its body / You watch it grow /
Feeding on a collective ego /
A hint of light/ It starts to burst /
Wither loudly spitting out dirt /
You smile and walk away from things that
aren't seductive, or pretty, or perfect,
or shiny, or pleasant, or worthwhile)

It's nothing more than a stuff toy
With a smile that's so coy
It's not like you're trying to avoid
'Cause everything's been destroyed
Track Name: Another Soul
Piece of driftwood rot down the flow
I lost the name of my other soul

Invite me to a distant land
With only wind and light as my only friends
When the lonely weight creeps upon my dreams
I'll take a pill to muffle all my screams

(I didn't see it coming
Now I couldn't look away
I changed my pace to catch you
I changed my pace to stay
Disappear in the water
With all the words you never say
I'll be quiet I'll be waiting
I'll be waiting
Awaiting
Awaiting
Awaiting)

Piece of driftwood rot down the flow
I lost the name of my other soul

Greet me with your soulful eyes
Greet me with your solemn lies
Greet me with a smile that blinds
Greet me with a threat that shines
Track Name: Suicide Pop
I
“I know you're sad, I know your days are bleeding too
And I know I make you sad.
I don't understand how not to,
but please don't bring in more of the grief,
don't add to it
If there is more,
then I won't be able to breathe and I'll die”

And I miss it, too
And I miss it like you do
A tender version of the end of the world

No memories, no emotions
No pleasure, no pain
No medals, no wounds
Neither beautiful nor ugly
Neither significant nor unimpressive
Never experience another moment of ecstasy
Never fall into depression again

// Breathe
Before you come I’ll close my eyes
Please join me at my last lullaby
I’m so intoxicated I could die

Breathe
There’s no need to feel ashamed
It’s just the end of a game
They'll take my face, they'll take my name //

My last dream
I can see it now
My life made sense
Everything made sense
They were necessary to make this possible


II
And when white noise becomes reality
I didn’t let go
I just let it be

Approaching / Approaching
Fearful / Fearful
Blind / Blind
Feel it / Feel it
Learn it / Learn it
Take it / Take it
We come to nothing

On fire / On fire
Evolve / Evolve
Perfection / Perfection
Dissolve / Dissolve
On fire / On fire
Evolve / Evolve
Perfection / Perfection
Strip to my bones


III
I'll drop my shell
I'll drop my name
They've never been mine anyway
Release from all mortal boredom and mortal pain
We won’t have to hold on
There’s nothing to be fearful of

A fiery cry of my name
Rewriting all the rules of this game
Ever so hopeful ever so blind
If I could only burn this last picture onto my mind
But it will soon be rotting
So preciously rotting rotting rottin
Track Name: Newborn Porn
I will have a
Fancy job
Cosy home
Pretty wife
When I go out they'll smile at me
Congratulate my perfect life


We were born to be fucked

Fuck
Fuck
Fuck
Fuck
Fuck
Fuck
