In America the land has been conquered by the white man, but in Australia it's not really like that. . . . You can go to places and you could be the first person walking there since the Creation or whatever. -- Adam

Handwritten Lyrics

Is it getting better
Or do you feel the same
Will it make it easier on you
Now you got someone to blame
You say one love, one life
When it's one need in the night
One love
We get to share it
It leaves you, darling
If you don't care for it

Did I disappoint you
Or leave a bad taste in your mouth
You act like you never had love
And you want me to go without
Is it too late tonight
To drag the past out into the light
We're one but we're not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One

Have you come here for forgiveness
Have you come to raise the dead
Have you come here to play Jesus
To the lepers in your bed
Did I ask too much
More than a lot
You gave me nothing
Now it's all I got
We're one but we're not the same
Yeah, we hurt each other, then we do it again

You say love is a temple
Love a higher law
Love is a temple
Love the higher law
You ask me to enter but then you make me crawl
And I can't be holding on to what you got
When all you got is hurt
One love, one blood, one life
You get to do what you should
One life with each other
Sisters, brothers
One life but we're not the same
We get to carry each other, carry each other
One, one, one

Do you hear us coming, Lord
Do you hear us call
See us knocking
We're knocking at your door
Do you hear us coming, Lord
You hear us call
You see us scratching
Will you make us crawl

Thank you once again
