lyrics

353 drowned in Siev X today
if you come to our country we’ll turn you away
first we’ll lock you up in a barbed wire cage
And then wonder what fuels the suicide rage
One day to Be Free

Demonise victimize polarize lie
Invent the threats then magnify
Point to a trickle and call it a tide
tell the whole country to choose a side

So send your huddled weary masses
Blown overseas like scattered ashes
Tell me human life still matters
One day one day to be free

Fortress Australia what a joke
just something they made up to steal your vote
(while) They lied about children not thrown overboard
harnessed the fear (magnify fear) and put truth to the sword
One day to be free

I dreamt of a world without any walls
My family with me not on some distant shore
I woke to a barbed wire nightmare
Where the few have so much and they don’t want to share
One day I’ll be free

Yes send your huddled weary masses
Blown overseas like scattered ashes
Tell me human life/one thing here still matters
One day one day to be free

Do we have to dream it up again?
Find the heart of our compassion?
Turn the lights on in your mansions!
One day one day to be free.
