Dead Fox

Album: Sometimes I Just Sit And Think And Sometimes I Just Sit (2015)
  • Jen insists that we buy organic vegetables
    And I must admit that I was a little skeptical at first
    A little pesticide can't hurt
    Never having too much money, I get the cheap stuff at the supermarket
    But they're all pumped up with the shit
    A friend told me that they stick nicotine in the apples

    If you can't see me, I can't see you
    If you can't see me, I can't see you

    Heading down the Highway Hume
    Somewhere at the end of June
    Taxidermied kangaroos are littered on the shoulders
    A possum Jackson Pollock is painted in the tar
    Sometimes I think a single sneeze could be the end of us
    My hay-fever is turning up, just swerved into a passing truck
    Big business overtaking
    Without indicating
    He passes on the right, been driving through the night
    To bring us the best price

    If you can't see me, I can't see you
    If you can't see me, I can't see you

    More people die on the road than they do in the ocean
    Maybe we should mull over culling cars instead of sharks
    Or just lock them up in parks where we can go and view them
    There's a bypass over Holbrook now
    Paid for with burgers no doubt
    I've lost count of all the cows
    There'll be no salad sandwiches
    The law of averages says we'll stop in the next town
    Where petrol price is down
    What do I know anyhow?

    If you can't see me, I can't see you
    If you can't see me, I can't see you

    If you can't see me, I can't see you
    If you can't see me, I can't see you Writer/s: Courtney Barnett
