ONE COUNTRY

W - Moginie/Garrett
Who'd like to change the world
Who wants to shoot the curl
Who gets to work for bread
Who wants to get ahead

Who hands out equal rights
who starts and ends that fight
And not rant and rave
Or end up a slave

Who can make hard won gains
Fall like the summer rain
Now every man must be
What his life can be
So don't call me the tune, I will walk away

Who wants to please everyone
Who says it all can be done
Still sit up on that fence
No-one I've heard of yet

Don't call me baby
Don't talk in maybes
Don't talk like has-beens
Sing it like it should be

Who laughs at their nagging doubts
Lying on a neon shroud, running around
Just got to touch someone
I want to be

So don't call me the tune, I will walk away

One country one
Country one country

Who wants to sit around
Turn it up, turn it down
Only a man can be
What his life can be

One vision
One people
One landmass
We are defenceless
We have a lifeline

One ocean
One policy
Seabed lies
One passion
One movement
One instant
One difference
One lifetime
One understanding

One country
One understanding

Transgression
Redemption
One island
One placemat
One firmament
One element
One moment
One fusion
Yes, and one time

ONLY THE STRONG

W - Hirst/Moginie
When I'm locked in my room
I just want to scream
Now I know what they mean
One more day of eating and sleeping

Speak to me, look at me, I've been broken up and shaken down
Speak to me, speak to me, I'm at the edge of myself, I'm dying
to talk
Look at me, won't you look at me, back once more at the point of
no return

When I'm locked in my room
I just want to scream
Now I know what they mean
Only the strong

OUTBREAK OF LOVE

W - Hirst
The world is crashing down on me tonight
The world is crashing down on me tonight
The walls are closing in on me tonight
The walls are closing in on me tonight

'Cos I know this is the end of the
Beginning of the outbreak of love

The stars come falling down on me tonight
The stars come falling down on me tonight

Sharks are coming up to feed
I believe it's time to move
Divers coming up to breathe
But I'm not in the mood

OUTSIDE WORLD

W - Moginie
There's a wind on the eastern side
Ghost Gums dance in the moonlight night
Mopoke mourns the racketeers

The bosses they can sense you mind
All in place to a hand that rules
They all want to deal you out

I can see the outside world
Everything's inviting in the outside world
Leaving all my problems in the outside world
Leaving all my problems in the outside world

It's the summer of another year
A little world weary a little more to fear
Hold those cards tight to your chest

Maybe some day you could be a man
Living quietly in a caravan
Not the Lismore Road tonight
