Terror (Welcome To No Man's Land)

All the signs read, SMILE . . . YOU’RE ON CAMERA, Welcome to No Man’s Land, you’re standing on Terra Firma, that some explorer once coined Terra Australis, and another explorer then retouched with Terra Nullius, that stole this land’s dreams, Terra Firma could be the next target in the War on Terror, from Terra Australis, to Anti-terror Laws, SMILE . . . YOU’RE ON CAMERA, Welcome to No Man’s Land, Terra Australis, with it’s Terra Firma, deemed Terra Nullius, embroiled in the War on Terror and everyone is governed by Anti-terror Laws, SMILE . . . YOU’RE ON CAMERA, Welcome to No Man’s Land, population under observation, you gotta love a sun-burnt country with a dry, split personality. Terra Australis, under Terra Nullius, right where you’re standing on Terra Firma with its beauty and its Terror, Terror, Terror . . . Welcome to No Man’s Land.
