"Wild Colonial Boy" as written by and Billy Walker....
I am a wild colonial boy
My name you'll never see
My land is ruled by Anglophiles
And forces foreign to me
I do not curse your referees
In boardrooms far away
Yeah who am I to question these
Who plan their final day

I've never known the jealousies
The overcrowded pain
I live and breathe the silences
The dust where no man reigns

I'm in love,
I got blazing light
Ten thousand miles of ocean
I'm alone
And there's more like me
Ignoring the end of their show

And when they shaft my brother dear
And pay him off with lies
I fill my hand with the Union card
And aim between their eyes

And if I smile,
When they crawl around
Too condescending to blame me
I am young,
Baby they're so old
Gothic, religious and tame

I am just a wild colonial boy
My name you'll never see
I breathe the silence that destroys
All their desperate harmony

    General CommentI love this song. Patriotic and masochistic at the same time.

    General CommentChisel's best lyric. I occasionally find myself sitting in meetings with boring pricks and silently singing the lyric:

    And if I smile,
    When they crawl around
    Too condescending to blame me
    I am young,
    Baby they're so old
    Gothic, religious and tame
