    For Your Enjoyment: Born of Frustration

    Friends,

    I have to work on ALIPAC projects all day today and tomorrow Sat and Sun so I have decided to allow myself one casual post.

    Back in the early 90's, I was blessed late one night to catch this video. I completely fell in love with this band and this song and the whole album on first listen. Later, I would play this song all the time on my college radio show.

    This is the video and song called "Born of Frustration" by a group called James.

    JAMES is an Irish alternative rock group that has been around a long long time. Although they are not as well known as other groups I love like U2 and Simple Minds, I still find their songs and lyrics inspirational to this day.

    The VIDEO is great, but please read the lyrics carefully before viewing.

    I hope you enjoy this as this song has meant a lot to me over the last 15 years. I have now seen the video for the first time since 1992 thanks to YouTube.com

    -------------------

    All this frustration
    I can't meet all my desires

    Strange conversation
    Self control has just expired

    All an illusion
    Only in my head you don't exist

    Who re you foolin'
    (ya) Don't need a shrink but an exorcist!


    Show me the movie
    of who you are and where you're from

    Born of frustration
    Caught upon the webs you spun

    Where's the confusion
    A vision of what life is like

    Show me the movie
    that doesn't deal in black and white

    Try to stop talkin 'bout who's to blame
    But all that counts in how to change

    Stop stop talkin 'bout who's to blame
    When all that counts in how to change

    All this frustration
    All this frustration

    Who put round eyes on a butterfly's wings?

    All this frustration
    All this frustration

    Who gave the leopard spots and taught the birds to sing?

    Born of frustration!
    Born of frustration!

    I'm living in the weirdest dream
    where nothing is the way it seems
    Where no one's who they need to be
    Where nothing seems that real to me!

    Bout time we filled our lives
    Upon the walls of gold no solid ground

    The world is spinnin' endlessly
    We're clinging to our own beliefs

    Born of frustration!
    Born of frustration!

    Great song and video W. The group James, needs to perform this song on the Senate and House floor. Our country is going down while our leaders play the blame game instead of trying to come together and find solutions for our many problems!

    While they are NOT as bad off as Boy George, you are less likely to notice effeminate characteristics when you are very young.
