Liner Notes: 



Stay Away From Obvodny Canal
© 2020 Cindy Prince

Stay away from the Obvodny Canal
Or you might be pulled in
Many have ended their lives there

Keep away from the Russian canal
For it might be a sin
If you're too close
you won't have a prayer

Some call it the Suicide Canal
Many have met their death
Those who know will warn you
Stay away from her murky depths
Some see a lady beneath the water
As they take their final breath

It flows through St Petersburg
Seemingly innocent enough
But violence is the norm

Workers and walkers
No matter how tough
Find that they too
must conform

Repeat chorus

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

Somehow it reminded me of a Tanita Tikaram song. Must be the mix of vocals and lyrics. Intriguing song!
