William White is my music wizard (mixing, producing, backup vocals, sfx, bass)
I wrote this song when I was between living situations in 2018. While I was running around town looking for an apartment and a roommate, I kept stumbling across these mattresses left out on the sidewalk. It was just the saddest thing. Somebody discarded it thinking another person would want it, but day by day these mattresses lose their shape and color. A rainy day is the final nail in the coffin. Nobody wants a wet mattress.
the plight of the soggy wet mattresses were pretty relatable at the time.
