My People (4:27)

Cover of Apocalypso

From Apocalypso and 11 other releases

Julian Hamilton has explained the lyrics as follows: “The song has definitely been adopted as an anthem by fans, which is great, but originally, I wanted to write a song about boat people in Australia in detention centres, and this horrible phenomenon where people come out here in search of a better life and we lock them up’.’’

‘’I felt so horrible about the way we treat these destitute people that I wanted to write a desperate-sounding song – the line ‘let me hear you scream if you’re with me’ could be understood to come from the perspective of someone who is locked up , needing to hear that there are people outside who are behind him and supporting him.”

“I doubt they’re going to be playing The Presets in detention centres,” he continues, “but I really wanted to let everyone know that there are people in Australia who care, and this song is my attempt at doing that.”
