Dredg – Ireland

You have created a falsehood
A focused yet close-minded view
There’s no telling where we’ll be at this same time next year
But I do know one thing it won’t be far from here

Does anyone know more about this song (above)?  Ireland was from an album called The Pariah, The Parrot and The Delusion (2009) by [alt rock/prog band] Dredg and based on a Salman Rushdie essay.

It’s a cracking tune (lovely break @.34) and the sarcastic lyrics seem to be from the view a person reveling in small town parochial life. There is very little on google about its origins. The singer is called Hayes so that might be a link but they are a born and bred Californian band. Anyone?

One of the joys of where I work (Ringsend) is the view of the fascinating goings on in Dublin Port. Today, I noted a visitor to the port. Several times, these grey ships can be seen calling here, and what they are doing, I never know. Usually foreign flag ships, likely just picking up supplies, possibly dropping men off for medical reasons, who knows?  But given the year that’s in it, I can’t help wondering what is really going on. Especially when they do not show up on the wonderful Marine Traffic tracking website [lower pic with mystery berth ringed]….Admittedly, our own ships never show up on that either, so probably nothing, but never let that get in the way of a good conspiracy theory…
