Things I Saw On My Walk

Things I Saw On My Walk

Liner Notes: 

As the title says!


Smashed Coke can I can't help you
smashed Coke can no can do
cos if I pick you up and throw you in the bin
I could catch the COVID
and I don't want to catch the COVID (no covid, no covid)

Little bottle of blue liquid you're a big mystery
little bottle of blue liquid what could you be
nail polish? some type of varnish? a solvent? Or maybe a hand soap
to wash away the COVID
to wash away the COVID (I'd pick it up but I don't want the COVID)

Big Gulp from 7-11, made of styrofoam
I thought they stopped using styrofoam
cos it's bad for the planet
just like the COVID
(7-11 and COVID 19 - a bad combination for this evergreen environment)

These are things I saw on my walk
and if these things could talk
what stories they could tell:
thrown out of car windows by drunken assh*les
thrown out of car windows by selfish assh*les

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I saw the title and thought it might be something nice!!! But then this is a very universal song because it's what we all see on our walks. Love the way you've created such a bleak soundscape to surround the lyrics, you've really got inside a lot of heads with this song.

What a great song this is!
Really hilarious delivery of the disturbing lyrics.
I'm liking the Melodica drone sneaking in there.
I live on a road that is about a medium-sized coffee consumption distance from the nearest megachain coffee shop so I'm always seeing empty coffee cups that have been thrown out someone's car window.

vivid portrait of a world where people are afraid of everythng, even unanimate objects can kill.

Danger danger, danger in everything! Afraid to live. Nicely captured through iconic articles of our society.

Mundane observations of modern life, amusing song. The backing was really fitting, I thought it would just be acapella so it was a bonus surprise.
