lyrics

Can someone tell me what it means to be Australian?
coz i for one, feel like i’m failing.
All i see is racism and greed prevailing,
the sickness grows from all the hate that we’re inhaling
Some of the population are fit like Adonis
but most Aussies are thick and abhorrent.
Leaders slap backs with the fat cats up in towers,
misspend public funds abuse their powers.
We have a misplaced sense of freedom,
free to succeed but free from reason.
We shun the poor and those who protest,
we love the law because it knows best.
Rates of suicide are so high.
So many alive feel dead inside.
Darth Murdoch serves another lie,
It’s no wonder kids smoke all that ice to get high...

WE DON'T CARE, BECAUSE LIFE'S TOO EASY
WE JUST SIT AND STARE, AND WE'VE BECOME SO NEEDY
IT'S SO UNFAIR HOW WE ACT SO GREEDY
WE TAKE MORE THAN OUR SHARE, AND LEAVE THE LAND BLEEDING


Far too many think that politics is boring,
Police state growing, everyone is snoring.
Addicted to brands and promotions,
Buy that useless shit, choke up the oceans.
You want your life easy and cheap,
But everyone needs somewhere to sleep
Our privilege comes with consequences,
Instead of helping we build higher fences
Some philosophies through the bong smoke,
And whinge about the system but you don’t vote!
Lazy spiritool, rastafar-white
You're lack of engagement has helped the rise to the far right
Politicians serve corporate interests
Treat our indigenous worse than prisoners.
Cut the land for metals and energy
And white out this nation’s black memory.
