I guess when I think about D. Boon, when I said leftist, I didn't mean anything represented in mainstream politics, really. I think he was a lot more radical than anything in that realm. he's certainly not on the other end of the spectrum, though. but I shouldn't have tried to lump him into a bucket; just a little time looking over his lyrics shows what an individual thinker he was, and man did he reel off some great little lines... you can find them all over the place, and some are downright poetic.
I mean.... "I saw some military hardware today, they changed the color olive drab to yellow, brown and gray, the color of our dead, the color of our glory"
"starting with the affirmation of man I work myself backwards using cynicism (the time monitor, the space measurer)" Like damn, when I was 15 I just thought the guitar/bass riffage in this song was amazing! I had no idea what Boon was trying to say and didn't really bother to listen. I like to think it seeped into my self-conscious somehow.
