 Fits pretty well here but probably also for a lot of other countries :-

When the shearing sheds are silent and the stock camps fallen quiet

When the gidgee coals no longer glow across the outback night

And the bush is forced to hang a sign, 'gone broke and won't be back'

And spirits fear to find a way beyond the beaten track

When harvesters stand derelict upon the wind swept plains

And brave hearts pin their hopes no more on chance of loving rains

When a hundred outback settlements are ghost towns overnight

When we've lost the drive and heart we had to once more see us right

When 'Pioneer' means a stereo and 'Digger' some backhoe

And the 'Outback' is behind the house; there's nowhere else to go

And 'Anzac' is a biscuit brand and probably foreign owned

And education really means brainwashed and neatly cloned

When you have to bake a loaf of bread to make a decent crust

And our heritage once enshrined in gold is crumbling to dust

And old folk pay their camping fees on land for which they fought

And fishing is a great escape; this is until you're caught

When you see our kids with yankee caps and resentment in their eyes

 And the soaring crime and hopeless hearts is no longer a surprise

 When the name of RM Williams is a yuppie clothing brand

 Not a product of our heritage that grew off the land

 When offering a hand makes people think you'll amputate

 And two dogs meeting in the street is what you call a 'Mate'

 When 'Political Correctness' has replaced all common sense

 When you're forced to see it their way, there's no sitting on the fence

 Yes, one day you might find yourself an outcast in this land

 Perhaps your heart will tell you then, 'I should have made a stand'

 Just go and ask the farmers that should remove all doubt

 Then join the swelling ranks who say, 'Don't sell Australia out' !
