"Who's Gonna Save Us?" as written by and Christopher John Cheney....
It's all around me and I just don't understand
Seems all out of place now
And I know it's late
But you know what they say now

We're under attack now
Our work is all cut out
Whatever happened to your rights?
And I know it's late
But you know what they say now

So where's the writing on the wall
Who's gonna save us?
Who's gonna provide us?
Who's gonna divide us?
Who's gonna save us

We're under powered now
Trial devoured now
Step aside and make way for the new leader
And it's getting late
But you know what the say now

[Chorus]
It's all around me and I just don't understand
Seems all out of place now
And I know it's late
But you know what they say now

[Chorus]

Looking for the writing on the wall
Who's gonna save us?
Who's gonna provide us?
Who's gonna divide us?
Who's gonna save us?

    General CommentFrom the words of the band, the song is about the gulf-war and how people are being sent to fight each other, many of whom probably didn't know who they were fighting for or against anyway.

    (It can't be about the California Recall because the band's Australian!)

    General Commentjust a lil wake up to the americans - no offense intended - but you guys ain't the only country with a fucked up government. we aussies have one too, mainly coz howard is just kissin bush's ass. anyway, it's plainly asking "who's gonna save us" in a society where we as individuals stand for nothing

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the summer I went to Aus.
    I think it's talking about society and whatnot being messed up. Great band.
