One Country

Midnight Oil

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 upon that fence
"No one I've heard of yet"

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

Who laughs at the nagging doubt
Lying on a neon shroud
Just gotta touch someone
Hey, I want to be!

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

(One country, 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 defenseless
We have a lifeline

One ocean
One policy
Seabed lies

One passion, one movement
One instant, one difference
One lifetime, one understanding

Hey, one country!
Hey, one country!

One country!
One country!
One country!
One country!

One understanding!

Transgression
Redemption
One island
Our place mat
One firmament
One element
One moment
One fusion
Yes and one time
