Midnight Oil - My Country

Was it just a dream, were you so confused

Was it just a giant leap of logic

Was it the time of year, that makes a state of fear

Methods were the motives for the action

And did I hear you say

My country right or wrong

Did you save your face

Did you breach your faith

Women, there were children at the shelter

Now who can stop the hail

When human senses fail

There was never any warning, no escape

Did I hear you say

My country right or wrong

My country oh so strong

My country going wrong

My country right or wrong

I hear you say the truth must take a beating

The flag a camouflage for your deceiving

I know, yes I know

It's written on your soul

I know, we all make mistakes

This is not a case of blurred vision

It's a case of black holes, pocket holes, soul holes

And did I hear you say...
