Final Fantasy → He Poos Clouds → “This Lamb Sells Condos”


No hope for the village, no hope for the village
A merchant’s in our midst and with a barrel fist
He’s coloured every surface, he’s slapped up a portrait
And yes, it is his own! He’s gonna take your home!
Have you seen our visitor? Look! Over the treetops!
Newly conjured erections are making him a killing
And Richmond St. is illing, so the graduates are willing
To buy in to the pillage, now there’s no hope for the village

Prisoners, be silent, be silent and be sharp

When he was a young man, he conjured up a firemare
Burnt off both his eyebrows and half a head of hair
And then as an apprentice, he took a drowish mistress
Who bestowed upon his youthfulness a sense of champagne chic
His seduction, his seduction to the world of construction
Now his mind will start to wander when he’s not at his computer
And his massive genitals refuse to cooperate
No amount of therapy can hope to save his marriage

Prisoners, be silent, be silent and be sharp

Can you hear them talking? Listen through the wall:

“Nothing to do, nothing to do
Living rent-free is boring me
Got no use for my PE Degree
Got no use for my pedigree
Hedi Slimane
I feed you every morning and ask so little
And agnès b.
But you belittle all the work, all the work that I do
I’m not content
When you take that walk without permission
I’m not content
I’m not defensive, I’m just saying this cause I love you
Donna Karan
You know I hate it when your friends are in the pool
And Kara Saun
Old money stinks, send those faggots back to Forest Hill
I’m not content
Contentment? What contentment? I am bald and impotent
I’m not content
Is that what it’s about? Oh honey, honey, shut your mouth”

Music videos

Directed by Stephanie Comilang and Jamie Shannon, the first video is shadow play and the second video is a live version of the first.

“The actors in the video are Cece and Sasha. I don’t know Cece very well (and that’s probably not how you spell her name) but Sasha is a 19-year old who helps out at Blocks and plays Velvet Underground on the ukelele.” —Owen [source]
