Album: Sometimes I Just Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit (2015)

Songfacts®:

  • Seemingly a song about Barnett's search for a home in the suburbs of Melbourne, this doubles as a call to arms about banishing materialism and re-building your life. Barnett explained to NME: "It's a real estate lament. I had an existential moment at an open-home in Preston, Victoria (Australia) where, after noting that there weren't enough electrical sockets in the lounge room, I realized I was looking through the house of someone who had died."
