Standing at the limit of an endless ocean
stranded like a runaway, lost at sea
city on a rainy day down in the harbour
watching as the grey clouds shadow the bay
looking everywhere 'cause I had to find you
this is not the way that i remember it here

Anyone will tell you its a prisoner island, hidden in the summer for a million years,Great Southern Land, burned you black,so you look into the land and it will tell you a story,story 'bout a journey ended long ago ,if you listen to the motion of the wind in the mountains,maybe you can hear them talking like I do
". . they're gonna betray, they're gonna forget you, are you gonna let them take you over this way . ."Great Southern Land, Great Southern Land
you walk alone like a primitive man and they make it work with sticks and bones, see their hungry eyes, its a hungry home ,I hear the sound of the stranger's voices ,I see their hungry eyes, their hungry eyes
Great Southern Land, Great Southern Land ,they burned you black, black against the ground

Great Southern Land, in the sleeping sun ,you walk alone with the ghost of time ,they burned you black, black against the ground and they make it work with rocks and sand ,I hear the sound of the stranger's voices
I see their hungry eyes, their hungry eyes, Great Southern Land, Great Southern Land, you walk alone, like a primitive man you walk alone with the ghost of time and they burned you black yeah, they burned you black
Great Southern Land


Australia, officially the Commonwealth of Australia, is a country in the Southern Hemisphere comprising the mainland of the Australian continent, the island of Tasmania, and numerous smaller islands in the Indian and Pacific Oceans. It is the world's sixth-largest country by total area. Neighbouring countries include Indonesia, East Timor, and Papua New Guinea to the north; the Solomon Islands, Vanuatu, and New Caledonia to the north-east; and New Zealand to the south-east.

For at least 40,000 years before European settlement in the late 18th century, Australia was inhabited by indigenous Australians, who belonged to one or more of roughly 250 language groups.After discovery by Dutch explorers in 1606, Australia's eastern half was claimed by Great Britain in 1770 and settled through penal transportation to the colony of New South Wales from 26 January 1788. The population grew steadily in subsequent decades; the continent was explored and an additional five self-governing Crown Colonies were established.

On 1 January 1901, the six colonies federated, forming the Commonwealth of Australia. Since Federation, Australia has maintained a stable liberal democratic political system which functions as a federal parliamentary democracy and constitutional monarchy. The federation comprises six states and several territories. The population of 22.7 million is heavily concentrated in the Eastern states and is highly urbanised.

A highly developed country, Australia is the world's thirteenth largest economy and has the world's sixth-highest per capita income. Australia's military expenditure is the world's twelfth largest. With the second-highest human development index globally, Australia ranks highly in many international comparisons of national performance, such as quality of life, health, education, economic freedom, and the protection of civil liberties and political rights. Australia is a member of the G20, OECD, WTO, APEC, UN, Commonwealth of Nations, ANZUS, and the Pacific Islands Forum.
