We Are the People Lyrics
Heading for the city lights in 1975
We share in each other
Nearer than father
The scent of a lemon drips from your eyes
We are the people that rule the world
A force running in every boy and girl

So... do you recall what happened here in the summer of 1975? The first time a democratically elected (overwhelmingly in two elections!) Prime Minister was sacked by an un-democratic foreign Queen for daring to implement policies detrimental to her stranglehold on this country, its resources & its people. Don't give me that rubbish over "supply"... the truth is out & it doesn't wash here anymore. Gough was openly socialist & from 1972 to 1975 we underwent a massive social & political cleansing ("scent of Lemon drips from your eye-eye-eyes"). The very next verse tells the story of the very best foreign-relations expert Prime Minister we ever had after decades of others failing on the same key issues he dealt with in two short weeks. He broke the Charade of Taiwan, ratified China into the UN & really upset the Nixon administration & CIA in the US. Just like JFK, he was more popular overseas than at home. There were wild celebrations in New York, "euphoria, absolute euphoria".
Do you recall what happened at 11 o'clock ("the shock hit eleven"), Remembrance Day, November 11, 1975? Sir David Smith & G.G. Sir John Kerr do... how else do you think they were drowned in titles & medals & honours shortly after the event?
"Are you going to leave me now?"... since Gough, we've never seen Old Labor again. That party was taken over by a bunch of Satan Worshippers in the early 1980's & we now have the filth there we see today. Shortly before his recent death, Gough rose up against the Establishment once more, joining with former PM Malcolm Fraser to expose their lies & promote an Australian Republic for which they were murdered (not died a natural death as the Fake News here want you to believe).
There are many more parallels right throughout the song, which I'm sure you can see clearly once you can get over your interpretations of "it's all about drugs, man"!

The last days of an Aztec Blueblood and his faithful servant. When death knows where you are, there is no escape. Even for gods.
