Invitation
There is a rumour 'round the nation
And in the queues at immigration
To come join in the celebration
In our place
You'll lose yourself amongst the laneways
Then find a hidden little staircase
You've got to scratch beneath the surface

Above you'll see the crown and bull
The sailing ship and the whale and wool
But the only place that life is found
Is underground
Crack the civilised veneer
You won't be surprised to hear
That's when crimson skies appear
All your worries are concealed
All your secrets are revealed
When your fate with us is sealed

Your new directive
No need for any more invective
You'll have a changing of perspective
Our 8-step program is effective
All the flavours
The minims, crotchets and the quavers
Amongst the bluestones and the pavers
You'll find all sorts of weird behaviours

Above you'll see the crown and bull
The sailing ship and the whale and wool
But the only place that life is found
Is underground
Crack the civilised veneer
You won't be surprised to hear
That's when crimson skies appear
All your worries are concealed
All your secrets are revealed
When your fate with us is sealed

Crack the civilised veneer
You won't be surprised to hear
That's when crimson skies appear
All your worries are concealed
All your secrets are revealed
When your fate with us is sealed
