Sick of this shit

Sick of this shit blowin' in my window
Sick of this food fuckin' up my heart
Think I care about your villa reno?
I live in a caravan park.

Kids tryin to sell me Daddy’s dope
Solo mums doin’ tricks
Bring some cash
The jockey’s cocky
And the fix is in
And the beauty queen
really earned her sash

I’m sick of this shit

If another tourist asks me to take his picture
Honey I swear I’ll know him down.
People say "you're doin' good"
Minimum wage in a tourist town.

I’m sick of this shit

“Any job is a good job boy
Cut those trees dig those mines
Watch the sugar - diabetes
It’s such a self-inflicted crime.”

I’m sick of this shit

I’m gonna leave for the city soon
I got a high-viz vest waiting for me
I got my eye on a suit and tie
Get rich tellin' lies for the company

I’m sick of this shit


released October 10, 2016
