Hades' Way 02:37
Hades Way We are the stoic men you know of 1885 Set in the pitch, we raise our picks all for the Queensland mines Deep in the earth again we go Our lanterns held ahigh Down in the soil again we toil Until the day we die Hi-Diddly-Ho (Hey) Hi-Diddly-Hey (Hey) Here we go again me boys, on down Hades’ way Hi-Diddly-Ho (Hey) Hi-Diddly-Hey (Hey) Here we go again me boys, on down Hades’ way Forging forth for all our worth through mud and stone and blood Like hellish plow, by beaten brow we march the horse on up out from the dark to make our name our fortunes to be made Torn from the rock and sodden muck into the light of day Narrowed eyes near gone half blind sweat stung in Summer’s heat scouring paths to rob the heart for riches far beneath For lust, for love, for family, for hours in between the drape of dirt, the snarl of work the years along the seam Hey

Take Back The Streets We took to the streets in our thousands Waving our placards and signs But ever since the days of September 11 Every cunt’s too scared to go outside Cause it’s easier to hit ‘Like’ on a Facebook page Than it is to get kicked in the face I miss the sounds of the police sirens The smell of Molotovs mixed with mace The coppers on horses and riot squad forces Came in to take us away So the bastards in power In glass and steel towers Could finally start to feel safe Never, not once would they cast us a gaze Down to the rebellious parade Made up of those sick of the cracking of whips And those breaking their backs everyday Let’s take back the streets my friends, We’ll show them our power again Lets take back the streets my friends, We’ll show them our power again Dragged from the womb Into suburban tombs Set down in a middle class hell Spending your days, sipping on Chardonnays And cursing slow ADSL Utopian dreams Viewed on LCD screens Shield you from the harsh world outside But you’ll never be free Watched on CCTV by Big Brother’s all-seeing eye It’s time to start getting angry again, It’s time to open your eyes Think for yourself Question those with the wealth And cast off the media lies We need a new revolution To take back our world from the rich Rise up and make sure that your voices are heard Break their windows And start throwing bricks Let’s take back the streets my friends, We’ll show them our power again Lets take back the streets my friends, We’ll show them our power again We’ll take back the streets my friends, We’ll show them our power again We’ll take back the streets my friends, We’ll show them our power again

Up She Rises 02:28
Up She Rises When I sailed down to Parramatta town where the river runs a streak of brown all the shanty lasses they gathered round and with a row and a roar we’d make this sound With an up she rises Up she rises Up she rises from the bed With an up she rises Up she rises Whiskey worn about the head Took a high born lady for a whirl across the floor her hair unfurled Knew I’d caught the wink beneath her curl when we awoke in the kitchen with the serving girl Led the parson’s daughter to the steps of her father’s house, her sins confessed Drunk her holy wine and thought me blessed when I knelt at the altar neath her Sunday best Met a black masked maiden’s dark eyed stare down a lonely road she robbed me bare when she drew her guns, a lovely pair then laid me down and left me there
