The Dillinger Escape Plan Gold Teeth on a Bum Video

Gold Teeth on a Bum music video for the song from Option Paralysis, the forth studio album from American metal band The Dillinger Escape Plan.  The record was released on the Season Of Mist label in March 2010.   Ben Weinman said about the origins of the record – “One of the inspirations of the record is the idea that there are so many stimuli going on right now, there are so many computers, iPhones, TVs, media, that nobody really knows what’s important anymore. There is no underground anymore because everything is homogenized and coming through the same filter. There are far fewer instances of certain circumstances affecting specific scenes, music and culture. Technology has become a substitute for actually living and experiencing things. That’s scary – It’s like a cultural depression”

Gold Teeth on a Bum Lyrics

Don’t see you ever do without
Leper
Forced to feel pitiful, and how clever
You call him pretty and blessed child
Blessed
Now see how the pretty boy runs wild
Wild
It’s just an ordinary day
I know how to fix you if you come my way

You are the proud and simple man
Simple
Now run as fast as I know you can
You can
Trick me with your deaf, dumb and blind
Dumb and
Feigned hero daily disguise
Disguise

It’s just like every other day
But I know how to fix you should you come my way
Pull out your teeth and stare
With your hands at your share
Pull out your eyes and stare
With your hands at your share

You call him pretty and blessed child
Blessed
Now see how the pretty boy runs wild
Wild
It’s just an ordinary day
I know how to fix you if you come my way
It’s just like every other day
But I know how to fix you should you come my way
Pull out your teeth and stare
With your hands at your share
Pull out your eyes and stare
With your hands at your share

You are the first one to fall down
You are the first one to cry foul
You are the first one to point the blame
You are the last one
Last one to feel ashamed

Couldn’t you help me so that I may believe?
Couldn’t you show me so that I may be saved?
