LYRICS:

I come from the land down under, I'm Australian
I come from the land down under, I'm Australian

I come from the land down under,

I'm Australian where we've got men at work Sudanese too Israeli

and this has got the ignorant acting a little Hilter-ish saying that any immigrant should be detained'ed.

Cause Though we got skills, man, they want us in cages,

they're scared, they see beige skin and think we're Hussein skins.

If they're found in the ground like him, then who's saying shit?

Other Than Saddamn Remi's Straight John Blaz'n

Leaving casualties from Canberra, my birth place

too, Nigeria's sand that my Daddy was raised in,

I'm fucking racist propaganda in it's face lips,

so Tell McGuire cram it before I go ape shit.

Though I guess it's not his bad,

That mind set is old, probably got it from his dad, copy and pasted.

And just reiterated what ignorant racists

Have thought since my mother's ancestors invaded

and that's

Fuck foreigners. Those Africans aren't worth shit.
Fuck the origins. Aboriginals aren't worth shit.
Fuck foreigners. Indian, Islander, Arabic, Asian if you're not male and caucasian you ain't shit.

I give's something stupid Raw

No condomss when I give's food for thought

Tell'em I'm extra extra,

Brought the big issue with me

I've got a real big Issue with it

Sushi, Sushi Raw

A la carte food for thought,

Tell'em I'm extra extra

Brought the big issue with me

I've got a real big issue with it

My white friends say I'm over reacting

Like Japan's power plants when earth cracked it

I tell'em I wanna send tsunamis

Wave's of change obviously

Need to swell in to action

So I'm starting 'em up

Turn on the TV

NAAAAHHHH FUCK IT

Turn it off

It's time warped like Michael Fox

But it's not back to the futures

It's back to when black's were in nooses

The Media make's it so we look like aliens,

I mean when's the last time you saw a black guy on Neighbours and

When the News papers

Say Migrants are taking over all of us

Fears the drug

Our dealers the Herald Sun

But let's take a back step

Even if you can ignore all of the facts then

You can't eliminate my experience

Of being made inferior

Or my dad's because of his accent

I fucking hated seeing him get knocked back when

Ever he went for jobs, just because of his black skin

They said he's over qualified

I said he's over colour-fied

They said I pulled the race card out of the Pack man

You think I wanna play that shit?

This isn't an arcade

This isn't a game

This shit is degrading

Can't take that shit

I fucking hate that shit

We've gotta Cremate it

But they keep fanning the flames with

Fuck foreigners. Those Africans aren't worth shit.
Fuck the origins. Aboriginals aren't worth shit.
Fuck foreigners. Indian, Islander, Arabic, Asian if you're not male and caucasian you ain't shit.

I give's something stupid Raw

No condoms when I give's food for thought

Tell'em I'm extra extra,

Brought the big issue with me

I've got a real big Issue with it

Sushi, Sushi Raw

A la carte food for thought,

Tell'em I'm extra extra

Brought the big issue with me

I've got a real big issue with it

Connecting the world with Africa and global communities...
