  • Hey, ain't you clever to be loaded in?
    Pursed lips and exploded
    I heard a click and noted, I froze and floated
    Just to check in how my gums have eroded
    You didn't look like you were joking
    When you said you're into choking
    Well, I guess if we're not smoking
    Then you gotta get your kicks
    Well, I gave what I had to give, with forty-eight hours in Tel-Aviv
    Seems these kids just wanna live and let live
    So take my love and get your kicks with it

    I might, I might go shack up in Tasmania
    Before the ozone goes
    And paradise burns in Australia
    Who knows? Who knows?

    Good luck with the service
    I know you don't deserve this
    By the time I've heard this, I'll be far, far
    Just another antipodean
    But to Americans, I'm an alien
    Dyed his hair again
    How could I know where I've been
    When I don't know who I am?

    I might, I might go shack up in Tasmania
    Before the ozone goes
    And paradise burns in Australia
    Who knows? Who knows?

    I wanna breathe, I wanna breathe real air again
    I wanna go back, wanna go back
    I wanna breathe, I wanna breathe

    I left my phone in Sydney
    'Cause all the stress outdid me
    Should I be worried 'bout my kidney or worried 'bout war? Writer/s: James Ireland, Jay Watson, Nicholas Allbrook
