'Dead Fox' by Courtney Barnett (Song, Video)


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 shit
A friend told me that they stick nicotine in the apples

If you can't see me I can't see you      (x2)

Heading down the Highway Hume
Somewhere at the end of June
Taxidermied kangaroos
Are littered on the shoulders
A possum Jackson Pollock
Is painted on 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      (x2)

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       [Repeat]
