"Politics In Space" as written by Kate Miller-heidke and Keir Nuttall....
I'm not gonna state my case anymore
Cause I haven't got a leg to stand on
I'm not gonna take the leap anymore
Cause I got no mat to land on

I'm not gonna smoke that shit anymore
It'll only get me thinking
And I better not paddle upstream anymore
Cause this canoe is sinking

No no no no no no

Are you alright? (pretty much)
Are you okay? (pretty much)
You got your health? (pretty much)
You know the way? (pretty much)
You know your limit? (pretty much)
You understand? (pretty much)
Are you the man? (pretty much) (pretty much)

Citizens don't stand up anymore
There's no point losing face
Sound off! 1 2 3 4
Politics in space

I'm not gonna be polite anymore
Cause everybody's got bad manners
I'm not gonna make any plans anymore
Cause the works are full of spanners
I'm not gonna meditate anymore
The revolution is off the agenda
I'm a baby boomer's daughter
And I'm never gonna reach nirvana

The sixties were 50 years ago
You know
Get over it

    Song MeaningKate said at a concert I attended recently that this song was her representation of her regret in not being a child of the 60s.

    General CommentI don't know why she would want to be part of a failed generation. This song is about the total & complete failure of that generation & getting over it. Waving the flag of surrender & not trying anymore because it doesn't work. It never has anywhere anytime in all of history & it never will. It just doesn't work.
