lyrics

*Audible sample from John Day's Speech announcing the construction of Elizabeth Quay*

well livin round here is such an easy matter
you just step outside; youre surrounded by matter
you take a bus a train a ferry and its all the same
be more like melbourne, yeah it’s one big game

seeing skyscrapers from your bed
see all the buildings made of lead

we'll build it up, we'll build it up, we'll build it up
let's knock it down, knock it down
we'll build it up, we'll build it up
let's knock it down, knock it down
we'll build it up, build it up
let's knock it down, knock it down
we'll build it up. build it up

Well I don't really care bout no Elizabeth Quay,
I mean i'm not opposed to change but
what’s it gotta do with me?
well a name is a name, but she's not my queen
Take a walk down st georges, maybe you'll know what I mean

Naming stuff after dead old men
It's just like Reagan all over again
Why we gotta all think like the hive
maybe one day there'll be a Mabo drive

we'll build it up, we'll build it up, we'll build it up
let's knock it down, knock it down
we'll build it up, we'll build it up
let's knock it down, knock it down
we'll build it up, build it up
let's knock it down, knock it down
we'll build it up, build it up

*Audible destruction of the City of Perth*
