lyrics

Well I woke up in the morning
And fuck it I felt great
I ran naked down the hall
To the backyard
Through the gate

And I screamed to the morning
I'm no better off than yesterday
But fuck it I'm still young
And that job I'm working doesn't pay

I got that shotgun from the wardrobe
Sipped that whisky and the rum
I drove down to the bank-house
Felt the trigger between my finger and my thumb

And I walked into that establishment
Of that modern wealthy man
He's been stealing shit for ages
If you think I cant
Then I can

Well I know something
That you bastards will never learn
And I've been knocked on my arse at every second turn
But I'm still standing
Through the sunny and the grey
Still free and surviving
In a world that tears itself apart a little more everyday

Well come down to the best pub
In this scum city town
I know its building up
But tonight we're tearing it down

So tell that girl you love her
Because its gonna be alright
Well this is van Diemans
And the drinks are on that fucking bank all night

Well I've been many places and I've seen a few things too
And I know when I'm away that I'm coming back to you
We've got this island down south that we can all our own
This island called Tasmania
That we all call home

But we're young and we're wild and we're free
And you'll never gonna stop us
No you'll never chain me

Because I can breathe
This island and me
This island and me
This island and me
