LYRICS

When the sun comes up, we've been on the job for hours
Putting dollars away, savin em up for a rainy day
On the western plains, we're digging mines so deep,
we never see the sun
On a highway on an endless road behind a wheel
hauling 100 tonnes
Though we lose our houses to fire
The land is still our home
If we stand together we'll be stronger
Living life under the stars of the Southern Cross

Waiting for ships to come in
Just like my fathers did for 200 years
Riding on mountain tops on snowy fields
on a brumbies back
Though we lose our houses to water
The land is still our home
When we stand together we'll be stronger
Living life under the stars of the Southern Cross
The land is so alive
And we were bred to be tough
We were born to survive
We are the gold of the southern seas
That's the life that we live
under the lights of the southern stars

Can't beat the hectic pace and the rush of the day
Weekend time seems miles away
Though we lose our houses to fire
The land is still our home
When we stand together we'll be stronger
Living life under the stars of the Southern Cross.

Southern Cross

Being extremely proud Australians, we couldn't miss the opportunity to dedicate a song to the people who make our country such a great place to be:- The average everyday hard working Australians who roll up their sleeves and get on with doing their job no matter how tedious, dirty or exhausting.

The worked hard to include as many iconic facets of Australian life as we could. Tradies, truckies, stockmen, miners and dockers. We also wanted to pay a tribute to the many Australians who've endured the hardship of floods and fires and always come out the other end with their dignity and self respect intact. There is a reference to the gold that elevated our country into a civilised continent and also a reference to the inspiring and emotional speech given by Anna Bligh when Queensland was devastated by floods.

We also wanted to pay a big tribute to Indigenous Australians by including a didgeridoo. It comes in after the first chorus, backed up by a cello and casts a powerful guttural and haunting spiritual moan that continues throughout parts the song.

The line, "Waiting for ships to come in, just like my fathers did for 200 years" was originally written to represent the shipping industry but we decided to highlight the didgeridoo to also reflect the frustration felt by Indigenous Australians seeing the tall ships continually arrive with the early settlers.
