Whatever, whatever whatever. This is a jumble of a song for me. Lot's of mixed ideas, mixed timelines and places. We recorded this in two studios as well, Bailly's place and Velvet Studio and still the song came together, Thanks to Tony Wall.The core story, and the most powerful for me, is the stolen generation story in the third verse. Don't say "Whatever" say "Sorry".



Cultural tall poppy cringe in the curl your lip the latest overseas trip.
The latest craze is a Summer haze that disappears with the light.
Just like last night banging you head on a wall.
Keep it down not to loud everyone’s doing it now let’s do it.

Don’t follow blind
Don’t say never mind
Don’t say
Whatever. Whatever. Whatever.

Riots in the suburbs Herb and I’ve gotta confess your right to righteousness.
Fight me too just get through hang about a Saturday night.
Drink like Shark bite quelling a hell of a thirst call ‘em mate hit ‘em first.
Never to late to retaliate.

Chorus repeat

Stolen children in the night women put up a fight.
Local lads in blue have only got a job to do.
Seen how they live? Those poor poor kids no better than dogs.
And Dogs? There must be thirty in a pack.
That’s that I’m calling in the vet, get rid of the lot.
Farm the kids out to good families, loving families.
Families with money. White families.

Chorus repeat
