Do you speak any tongue?
Of your homelands timeless past
Dreamtime lores or song and dance?
Are you here because of circumstance?
Heritage built from prison ships
Orders of Motherlands leadership
From men bowed down by iron chains
From Ancestors that sewed the lands
And prayed for rains
From little grains they made great gains
But also livelihoods built on land bloodstains
No white guilt but we need to acknowledge
Blood was spilt for what’s been built
So don't raise a flag with a rifle
OZ flag has a history that is homicidal
Excludes cultures on the borderline of survival
It’s time for this county to take reprisal
Subvert the union jack
It doesn’t include the colour BLAK
Acknowledges Australian Aboriginal ethnography
Not constitutions built on injustice as authority
We all live under our radiant southern cross
This land has great knowledge that's been lost
It’s home for all
It lives in all our hearts
Yet our shared histories keep us apart
This shadow of colonisation needs to depart
Changing the flag would be a great start!
