Start a riot, slash your wrists red
You want an anwser?
Do you speak delinquently
Oh yeah?
Theres a message
Antagonist
You want an anwser?
I bet you killed someone
Oh yeah?
Come on
I beg you
My world comes tumblin' down
I paid the price
Heartache I'm not sorry
I fell in love with you in NYC
Uh uh
She ran away
Her mamma never loved her
Pill popping pitty
She is sick in Melbourne city
Oh no, oh yeah
Oh where are you gerti rouge
Come on I beg you
My world comes tumblin' down
Hey oh baby come on
And speak to me
Hey come on
Uh oh you are fucking bored
Are you
You are fucking bored
You're just bored

    General CommentThis is hands down my favorite Distillers song. It's one of the first songs I learned on the guitar too. It just does not get better than this.

    General CommentThe song is obviously about Brody babes herself.

    Bored in melbourne, where she grew up.

    brody pretty much left home and everything after brody and her mum tried strangling eachother in the kitchen.

    probably felt like her mum didnt love her.

    This song is really kick ass.

    General CommentI don't think it's about her it's about her friend Gerti Rouge who was abused by her father. The song Young Girl is about her too. Or I guess it could be about Brody and she's crying out for help to her friend...

    General CommentGerti Rouge isn't actually mentioned in this song... These lyrics are incorrect. Unless there are different versions?
