When?
© 2002, Jim Lesses. All Rights Reserved.

Out in the heat of the desert sun, where even the dingo cries.
Under the glare of the dogs and men; Under the razor skies.
The children run through broken dreams, and wait for the dawn to bring
Relief from the monsters in their sleep, and this is the dirge they sing…

CHORUS
When do we get to Australia?
When do the walls come down?
When will the guards and dogs be gone,
And when can we kiss the ground?
When will the Mighty hear our prayers?
Where can we all find peace?
When do we get to Australia,
And when will the lying cease?

Out of the burning sands they fled, away from the boot and gun,
Into the arms of fear and cant, and back to the blazing sun.
Trapped in a land that lost its shame; Caught in a far off haze.
Drifting along in a timeless land; Lost in an endless gaze.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
And out on the edge of the northern run,
Where even the saints go blind.
They pray for an end to the lies and games,
And wait in a broken line.

INSTUMENTAL BREAK and CHORUS

Coda:
When do we get to Australia,
And when will the lying cease?
