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"

Republic a song from The Eureka Suite by John Munro

No more English crown and sceptre
No more pompous circumstances
And when London plays the tune
No more Australia dances

Bring on, bring on Republic
Move on, move on Australia
Bring on, bring on Republic,
Move on, move on Australia

No more laws just for the rich
and no injustice for the poor
when the system makes you sick
let the system provide the cure

They belonged on they were sent here
Now they come because of choice
Though they speak with many tongues
They will forever find their voice

Someone else's child no longer
Finding strong and steady feet
We will stand and shout "Republic"
Where all nations children meet
