about

The Bored of Education Chicago, Illinois

Formed in 2010, this quartet spent a year creating the sound that is The Bored of Education. "Live @ Reggie's Music Joint" is a premier of their spirit-filled performances, led by Dorris' gospel ear. The group shines on a scatter-shot arrangement of "At The Dinner Table" and a nod to Gershwin's "Summertime". "Dominican Lover", "Messiah Complex" and a church-fed encore, "The Truth", are highlights. ... more

Track Name: Lied to Me
You said the story has ended. You said I couldn't even keep my job or less my kids. You said all excuses had been spend-ed. You said I wasn't no good. You did. You did. You did.

When I think about the way you criticized my walk the way you talk about my hair. When I think about the way you made me feel, I never really thought you cared. There's a truth to life, a light so bright so out-of-sight I have to put it out at night. So I take some time to to feel my mind. You know you ain't right.

You Lied to Me. You Lied to Me.

I thought that this was a love story. How you gone and put all your shit on me? I thought we could all have the American Dream. Somebody call Dr. King! The Dream is not for you and it's not for me.

Track Name: Dominican Lover
Girl, its gotta get lonely. Even though I claim you as my own. I'm used to living at a distance. I know you must get lonely.

Is there any consolation, when I call you on your cellular phone, And we fuck at a distance? I know your hands get lonely.

I can figure you out this time. The space I need between points in my life. If you want me to, I can send the results to you. All the way across the distance.

Making up for the lost time. Making up for the distance. If you give me just ten minutes, I can show you the positions that I learned in The Dominican.

If you play your cards right. We can get closer all night. And try to fight off the distance. I know you must get lonely.

I can figure you out this time. The space I need between points in my life. If you want me to, I can send the results to you. All the way across the distance.

Hey, girl. You said you were strong enough for this. But, I see that you are drawing closer, far too close to me.

I can figure you out this time. The space I need between points in my life. If you want me to, I can send the results to you. All the way across the distance.
Track Name: All Right! All Write!/ I Don't Mess With Satan
"ALL RIGHT! ALL WRITE!"

If you ask me can I tell you exactly how my story's gonna end, right now? Or is my future not laid out before me, and I'm writing my , right now? If you ask me can I tell you exactly how my story's gonna end, right now? Or is my future not laid out before me, and I'm writing my , right now? [Honestly, we have no idea what Erick is saying during this part of the song. Probably something "spiritual" or in keeping with his "Magical Black Man" persona. I dunno... I'm just an intern. An imaginary intern...]

I gotta right on! I gotta right on!

Tell me what you gonna do.
Tell me what you're gonna right.
Tell me what it's gonna say.
I can be anything I can be, all right!


"I DON'T MESS WITH SATAN"
I don't mess with Satan. I don't mess with him.
I don't mess with Satan. I don't mess with him.
I don't mess with Satan. I don't mess with him.
When he knocks on my door, I ignore.
When he calls my name, I complain.
When he dials my number, I'm "BIZZAY"!
I don't mess with Satan!
Track Name: Tonight You Belong To Me
Oh honey, I know you belong to somebody new.
But tonight you belong to me.
Although we're apart, you're part of my heart.
And tonight you belong to me.

Way down by the stream, how sweet it will seem.
Once more just to dream with you in the moonlight.

I know with the dawn, you sure will be gone.
But tonight, you belong to me.
Track Name: Complicated Man
Well, well, well so you want to be a Complicated Man.
Hear The Word and run as fast as you can.
Well, well, well so you want to be a Complicated Man.
Feel The Word and run as fast as you can.

Ezekiel put the scroll in his mouth.
And from the whale, Jonah decided to journey out.
Jesus, please, you'll just have to understand.
All my works have shown I'm a Complicated Man.

Well, well, well so you want to be a Complicated Man.
You hear The Word and your run as fast as you can.
Well, well, well so you want to be a Complicated Man.
You seal The Word and run as fast as you can.

All the boys they stretch tape across my mouth.
They seal The Word in case they decide to fuck it out.
Daddy knows my works and writes them in long-hand.
All my works have shown I'm a Complicated Man.

If I go will you change me? If I go will I be the same?
Oh my, God, you better change me! I've been through this again and again.

You can dress me up, but you can't change me. You can dress me up, but I'm still a queer. Oh my, God, you better change me! I've been through this again and again.

Complicated man. Complicated man.
Track Name: Summertime
Summertime and the livin' is easy. Fish are jumping and the cotton is high. Your daddy's rich and your mama's good-looking, so hush little baby don't you cry.

One of these mornings, you're gonna rise up singing. You're gonna spread my wings and take off to the sky. [Erick made up lyrics from here forward. We cannot print them and pretend that Gershwin wrote them.]
Track Name: Messiah Complex
You shot into a room; scattered a million different pieces. And when the cops came in you assumed they'd know you.

But you're not a god to label good things, or bad things, or any living thing. You're just a guy living off the waste, cradled in the waist, living like the rest of the world.

To know you is to know how it feels to be known. To call out your name is a thrill I'll never know, I suppose. You said, "All that's good is good. All that's bad is bad." But how do you know? If I am no good am I only bad, do you suppose?

But you're not a god to label good things, or bad things, or any living thing. You're just a guy living off the waste, cradled in the waist, living like the rest of the world.
