I am a wild colonial boy
My land is ruled by Anglophiles
I do not curse your referees
Yeah who am I to question these

The overcrowded pain
The dust where no man reigns
I'm in love,
Ten thousand miles of ocean
And there's more like me

And pay him off with lies
And aim between their eyes
And if I smile,
Too condescending to blame me
Baby they're so old

My name you'll never see
All their desperate harmony
