Lyrics Shins in Australia

All The beauty of Australia is just astounding, needless to say. Australians and foreigners all adore the serenity, the beauty, and contentment brought about by the country, through its picturesque views and meaningful riches. The country-continent has become a popular subject for many movies, television series, books, and songs.
The Shins is a US-based indie rock band. In 2007, the band released its third commercial album called ‘Wincing the Night Away.’ The second single from the album is called ‘Australia,’ which judging though its lyrics is an obvious ode and tribute to the beautiful country. The song has been made more popular when it was included in the soundtrack of ‘Project Gotham Racing 4,’ one of the popular games in the gaming console Xbox 360.



As mentioned, Australia lyrics by the Shins implicitly and explicitly points reference to the country. Here is the exact wording as used in the popular and symbolic song.
Australia Lyrics Shins

Born to multiply or
Born to gaze into night skies
When all you want’s one more Saturday
Well look here until then
They gonna buy your life's time
So keep your wick in the air
And your feet in the fetters 'till the day...
We come in doing cartwheels
We all crawl out by ourselves
And your shape on the dance floor
Will have me thinking such filth
I'll gouge my eyes

You’ll be damned to be one of us girl
Faced with a dodo’s conundrum
I felt like I could just fly
But nothing happened every time I tried


Oh duotone on the wall The selfless fool who hoped he’d save us all He never dreamt of such sterile hands You keep them folded in your lap Or raise them up to beg for scraps You know he's holding you down With the tips of his fingers just the same


Will you be pulled from the ocean
But just a minute too late
Or changed by a potion
And find a handsome young mate for you to love

You'll be damned to pining through the windowpanes
You know you'd trade your life for any ordinary Joe's

Well do it now or grow old
'Cause your nightmares only need a year or two to unfold

Been alone since you were 21
You haven't laughed since January
You try and make like this is so much fun

But we know it to be quite contrary

Dare to be one of us girl
Facing the android's conundrum
You see I felt like I should just cry
But nothing happens every time I take one on the chin

Yeah Himmler in your coat
You don't know how long I have been watching
The lantern dim starved of oxygen
So give me your hand and let's jump out the window
