A Firm Nation

As performed on Sunday (28 May 2006) at the high-powered 50th birthday of Trevor Davies, founder of the South Sydney Herald, for an audience that included the leader of the NSW Upper House Meredith Bergman, the leader of the National Party Duncan Gay, various Green and Labour Members of Parliament, Councillors and aparatchicks, and various trouble makers from the ABC, the Uniting Church, and other tools of progressive and inclusive social engineering, here are the lyrics of A Firm Nation, sung to Savage Garden's "Affirmation":

A Firm Nation

I believe that Scripture’s more important than Humanity
I believe the Catholic Church deserves its Truth monopoly
I believe that saving souls is worth the cost of child abuse
I believe that cross dressers are perverts and there’s no excuse
I believe the Pope is right about abortion and safe sex
I believe in all the sexist racist stuff in ancient texts

I believe you’re either with us or you are a terrorist
I believe the p’lice needs lots more laws to lock up activists
I believe the truth is what we see each night on channel ten
I believe the war on Terror looks so good on CNN

I believe the Middle East Road Map to Peace has got a chance
I believe Bush, Howard and Blair are just victims of circumstance
I believe the Op/e/ra House “No War” criminals are bad
I believe it makes sense to bomb people cos their leader’s mad
I believe Democracy and Oil are well worth fighting for
I believe pre-emptive strikes will keep our country safe from war

I believe you’re either with us or you are a terrorist
I believe the p’lice needs lots more laws to lock up activists
I believe the truth is what we see each night on channel ten
I believe the war on Terror looks so good on CNN

I believe that prisoners are criminal cos they’re in jail
I believe we are not safe if women hide behind a veil
I believe that gay men can’t get married cos they don’t have kids
I believe that lesbians can’t have real sex, they don’t have dicks

I believe you’re either with us or you are a terrorist
I believe the p’lice needs lots more laws to lock up activists
I believe the truth is what we see each night on channel ten
I believe the war on Terror looks so good on CNN

I believe you’re either with us or you are a terrorist
I believe the p’lice needs lots more laws to lock up activists
I believe the truth is what we see each night on channel ten
I believe the war on Terror looks so good on CNN
