lyrics

This is not fine but it surely is a sign
A new world is dawning, our future is in-sight
Survival to the left - extinction to the right
Wherever we steer now is going to decide

Don’t want to be the generation who chooses to die
Will not be that guy so keeping up the fight
Every single person who be lying and gaslighting
Denying can keep hiding I'm a keep us from dying

And yes I’m crying, for houses that burned down
And yes I’m crying, for people who not around
Yes I’m crying, for animals who died
It's hardly the time for emotional stage fright

A nationwide emergency is hardly the time
To be away holidaying by the beachside
Doomsday clock ticking over to midnight
But sure, tell us this is all fine.

THIS IS NOT FINE - when your house is on fire
THIS IS NOT FINE - PM chasin' a sound bite
THIS IS NOT FINE - sky is turning black.
THIS IS NOT FINE - PM turnin' his back.

This is not fine but it surely is a sign
Scotty’s at the footy while Australians are dying
Scullin’ down a beer, waving his scarf
While public housing residents are locked in the dark

We all deserve a break but this is not the time
For any political leader to be drinking and smiling
You ought to be out there helping out with welfare
Instead your out drinking on your holiday again

Say you want to see family - where are they now
Wife and kids not an excuse to roll out
Sold out, your values that you sold us on
Family values man been put to the lie son

So put your lights on - gettin’ way to dark
Middle of the night clouds covering stars
Covering up scars that fires left you with
But your pandemic handling is more of the same shit

THIS IS NOT FINE - when your house is on fire
THIS IS NOT FINE - PM chasin' a sound bite
THIS IS NOT FINE - sky is turning black
THIS IS NOT FINE - PM turnin' his back

Where is the line? cos this is not fine
I see em takin' water even though it's not the time
There’s dried up riverbeds, the Murray-Darling's nearly dead
But now we got a lake on some farms instead?

Another one mislead, and the fires are ahead
The dread sets in cos the lies begins to spread
Tread carefully, maybe its better left unsaid
But if they’re defunded, they can't defend your shed

And now koalas are dead. Or what’s your favourite animal?
Cos someone gave a dam and now they looking mighty flammable
So save ya spam, you ate their words like you’re a cannibal
All I’m looking for is someone to be accountable

From insurmountable, drought, floods and fires
What else the world desire? A pandemic? try it
There's people around the world losing breath and dying
But the fans said he's tryin..

THIS IS NOT FINE - when your house is on fire
THIS IS NOT FINE - PM chasin' a sound bite
THIS IS NOT FINE - sky is turning black
THIS IS NOT FINE - PM turnin' his back
