An Australia guided by the spirit of the Eureka Tradition as symbolised by the diggers' flag and oath:
"We swear by the Southern Cross to stand truly by each other and fight to defend our rights and liberties"

Fire! Fire! In the street!!!!!! lyrics /musicK.Mazzella
Published by Peer Music 2004

Fire ! Fire in the street!
Hear ! Hear! the marching feet!
Ue! Raffaello!
The world is burning as we speak!
We can no longer be weak!
Ue ! Raffaello! Ue! Raffaello!

We're poor!
We don't want to be poor!
We can't put up with anymore!
Did we come so far?
For a fresh start
For this new world to break our heart?

"Joe! Joe!" the hunt is on!
This cruel law is wrong!
Ue! Raffaello!
Why must we bow and scrape?
And resign to bitter fate
Ue ! Raffaello!
Were poor! But we must make a stand!
For every woman, child and man!
Lets lend a hand!
Forge our demand!
For the end of this cruel command!

( Mid )
The viscious prosper at our cost
Our children hunger we are lost
If we do nothing ( echo nothing!)
We sew till dawn
Our fingers bleed
And from our blood
A flag is born It's really something! ( echo something!)
Sing out strong! One and all!
Down governments dusty hall
Our song of freedom!
For the dead are not gone
Their spirits live on and on
Ue! Raffaello!

We're poor! But we must make a stand!
For every women, child and man!
Well use our voice!
And well rejoice!
As we the people make our choice!
Well use our voice!
And well rejoice!
As we the people make our choice!
