Wrong Side Of The Road is a ground breaking 1981 Australian film, road movie, rock documentary, musical drama, it followed 2 days of life on the road for two Aboriginal rock/reggae bands which were largely unknown to mainstream Australia: No Fixed Address e Us Mob.
Its a great film it tackled the taboo subject of racism in Australia head on, a topic which one would say still is pretty taboo.
Each band gets a side each on the album, No fixed address later released their groundbreaking Ep "From My Eyes"

No fixed address
You can't change the rhythm of my soul,
you can't tell me just what to do.
You can't break my bones by putting me down,
or taking the things that belong to me.

Cause we have survived, the white mans world
and the horror and the torment of it all.
We have survived, the white mans world
and you know, you can't change that.

All the years has just passed me by,
I've been hassled by the cops nearly all my life.
People trying to keep me so blind,
but I can see whats going on in my mind.

Cause we have survived, the white mans world
and the horror and the torment of it all.
We have survived, the white mans world
and you know, you can't change that.
