A Flower Down The Barrel Of A Gun
(Daniel Gannaway)


[2004]
Testo e musica di Daniel Gannaway
Lyrics and music by Daniel Gannaway

"The song was inspired by John Howard and the Australian Government's actions over the 438 Afghan refugees trapped at sea in September 2001, and the Australian governments reaction and treatment. The asylum seekers were stranded at sea for more than a week after the Norwegian ship Tampa rescued them from the sinking Indonesian ferry they were aboard on 26 August. It took them to Christmas Island but Australia refused to let them land. They were taken to Papua New Guinea to be flown to New Zealand and the South Pacific island of Nauru for the processing of their asylum claims." -Daniel Gannaway.
Adrift in a boat
Paying for escape
A people in this world so dislocated

Praying you won't sink
With nothing to drink
You're saved somehow by a Norwegian ship

They're sending you wherever they can
Maybe Aotearoa Nauru or some other Pacific Island
Sending you wherever they can
Mr Howard's Aussi government just doesn't want to let you in
Sending you wherever they can
Maybe Aotearoa Nauru or some other Pacific Island
Sending you wherever they can
Mr Howard's Aussi government just doesn't want to let you in

You're hoping for permission to stand
Free in some Van Diemen's land

But gun boats and the military
Stopped you dreaming out at sea

They're sending you wherever they can
Maybe Aotearoa Nauru or some other Pacific Island
Sending you wherever they can
Mr Howard's Aussi government just doesn't want to let you in
Sending you wherever they can
Maybe Aotearoa Nauru or some other Pacific Island
Sending you wherever they can
Mr Howard's Aussi government just doesn't want to let you in

They're dividing you
They're dividing you
Oh it's despicable
They're dividing you
They're dividing you
Oh it's despicable

Adrift in a boat
Paying for escape
A people in this world so dislocated
