lyrics

Brakes take a beating
down the pass from Robertson
Aloe vera pealed across the Nullarbor
down to the rim

Never crossed my mind to think
about the wind and where its been
Hammerhead in brackish water
I can’t see what’s right in front of me

But I never bothered
Sure as hell nobody taught us
And I never thought of
The intimate lines you were singing to each other

Oh, when I waltzed right in 
When I waltzed right in


Shaking like a fevered child
you take me in and make a bed for me
Though we are forsaken
Kata’s on her way to cool our heads, you see

Burning out the underbrush
the canopy protects our memory
Undergirding for all the us
the vapour will condense eventually

Everything covered
Fathers and mothers
Then we can be lovers
The intimate lines we’ll be singing to each other

Oh, But I don’t know when
Oh, But I don’t know when
But I don’t know when

Southerly  
Evening muse
Say you’ll stay
Heal the wound 

Suddenly
Slight of hand
You find a way
to cool the land
