I, I was, I was shaken down in a toy town, he, he's out there
You know it's Kennedy's shadow from White Cross to Michigan
ATM's are in the air, oh yeah, machines
They are spinnin' out everywhere

The speaker is speakin', can you hear the sound?
The listener is listenin' as he hits the ground
The medium or the message but there's no one around

I couldn't believe, I couldn't believe
The stars of Warburton were waitin' for me

We were dancin', we were dancin' on the plain
We're lookin' through the window, didn't see any buffalo there
We got our pipe dreams, they went up in smoke dreams
Burn it clean in the climate control of your hyper mark malls
Don't wanna talk about Elvis Presley, don't wanna see his white shoes
Walkin' around and around and around and around over here

The press baron's actin' up, the mainframes are down
The newspaper's crawlin' around on the ground
The medium or the message, still there's no one around

I, I couldn't believe, I couldn't believe
The stars of Warburton were waitin' for me

Over the hills and mountains we go, so far, so far away
For the ring of the ax on the iron bark, for the smell of the wallaby stew
From the golden reefs to the sandstone cliffs came the shipments
Of the Mallee plain, the wind blew the soil to the Orient
We'll be shoutin' to the skies again

Now, I, I could not believe, I couldn't believe
The stars of Warburton were waitin' for me
Now, I, I couldn't believe, I couldn't believe
The stars of Warburton were livin' in me, rainin' down on me
I couldn't believe, I couldn't believe
The stars of Warburton were washin' down on me
