Song Description

Just guitar and vocal. A full production will follow.

Story Behind the Song

One day I saw vinyl records and furniture sitting out on the pavement waiting to be taken to the tip as the result of a house clearance. It was a sad scene. That scene inspired the song.

Broadjam Member Reviews

I love the message!! I pretty much feel the same way. I'm 62, and am so glad I grew up when I did....the music, the art, the thoughtful conversation, the enjoyment of community and neighbors. I think you did a great job of expressing this in this song. Your vocal is very heartfelt and the arrangement works well.

    - Greg Johnson

Vinyl records on the sidewalk....i can hear the pain of you expressing the deep regret of everything that's gone wrong not only in the music business but in life! well done, good sir!

    - StarburstRecords
Lyrics

Vinyl records on the sidewalk
On the pavement on the street
Furniture at the junk yard
In the trash can
While we just sleep

We're throwing away our culture
Our culture, our culture
We're throwing away our culture
Our culture
As I speak

Drones fill the sky
They're keeping their eye
On you and me
Information overload
Just do as you're told
Here comes a cold front

We're throwing away our culture
Our culture, our culture
We're throwing away our culture
Our culture
As I speak, yeah

We've giving up ground
We're losing our sound
We're lost in this town
Our buildings are dust
Our motors are rust
Our temperature's way down

Rags and bones
Rollin' Stones
Hearts and homes

They're throwing away our culture
Our culture, our culture
They're throwing away our culture
Our culture
I just weep
