The Lyrics

Australians hang your heads in shame
Don't think we're really free
With barren soil
and wars for oil
our mindset - apathy...
Where once abounded nature's gifts
Of beauty rich and fare
Our history shows the deadly blows
we've wreaked at Earth's despair
With shameful hearts let us begin
Australia's slow repair.

Beneath our blurry Southern Cross,
we stole and raped the land,
To call it "Commonwealth of ours',
Polluted at our hands,
For those who come across the sea
detention cells to share
Then we have the hide to sing
"Advance Australia fair'.
With shameful hearts let us begin
Australia's slow repair.
Wake up Australia.
