Through the coming days and the dark storms they’ll bring
         I’ll ride with you.
As the vitriol flows and the weak seek to alarm,
         I’ll ride with you.
When the light begins to fade and the fear-mongers start to sing,
         I’ll ride with you.
If you feel hopeless, unable to find calm,
         I’ll ride with you.

For we are not a nation built on the fears
         of an irrational and deranged few.
We are Australians and
         we’ll ride with you.
We won’t give in to hearsay and small minds incapable
         of discerning false from true.
We’ll ignore them, scorn them and pity them.
         We’ll ride with you.

The future of this country is one
         of acceptance, tolerance and peace,
and, arm in arm, we will always stand by you.
         We’ll ride with you.
For, in the end, we are all human,
         we are all Australian, there is no me and you.
So, together, from this day until the last
         we’ll fight the intolerant storms and the hate of a few.
                  We’ll ride with you.

Modern Vestiture

 
That effervescent minx, Kylie Minogue, has decided to recut and remaster 16 of her greatest hits at London’s Abbey Road Studio’s, aptly naming it The Abbey Road Sessions. Thankfully, she decided her duet with Nick Cave, Where the Wild Roses Grow, from his 1996 album Murder Ballads, was one of the 16 worth remastering.
 
You can listen to it here but in the mean time, just watch the original. WARNING: you may fall off your chair due to excessive swooning, regardless of gender.
