Track Name: Survivors
(INTRO)


(VERSE ONE)
They would rather compensate us then give us recognition
in other words i would rather are you out of your tradition
Cause when you recognised ah
that's that's how your culture survives
many millennia and thousands of tribes
around the fire light corroborees
the writings on walls
it's like the truth in the past
they would rather us all dead
But we survivors
through the spirit of my ancestors thousands of years from behind us
Hear that survivors
through their ignorance and arrogance there miss education divides us
Product of environment
Before all the grog and the drugs It was dreams that would guide us
Now we stuck in violence
prison systems confine us
Genocide undercovers
The Stolen kids under silence
no wonder we tyrant
Revolution is now Australia can't stop us
We taking back what is ours

(HOOK)
Genocide it was genocide
See the pain in my people's eyes?
Deny my culture steal my pride
But we survived betta recognize

Genocide it was genocide
See the pain in my people's eyes?
Deny my culture steal my pride?
But we survived betta recognize

(VERSE TWO)
They wanna breed out the pedigree
close down communities
broadcast the negative
and highlight the bigotry
yeah yeah they want to whiteout our history
with no recollection just the white man legacy
don't believe me Ask Lang Hancock
yeh thats gina farther had a 5 had a plan to poison the lot
you want to stop the sons and daughters
put some poison in there water
then you wait a generation then peg out the lot
now that's iron ore pimpin
iron ore pimpin
Blood on their hands from these iron ore victims
fuck Barnett the government system throw a little dollar call it royalty for regions
yo yo this is black man's land
always has always will be black man land
over seventy thousand years walking this land
then cook came and when bang now we living in a....

HOOK)
Genocide it was genocide
See the pain in my people's eyes?
Deny my culture steal my pride
But we survived betta recognize

Genocide it was genocide
See the pain in my people's eyes?
Deny my culture steal my pride?
But we survived betta recognize

( VERSE THREE )
They must have thought they seen aliens
when them convicts ships came sailing in
Crooks galore
criminal minds hit the shore
guns go bang and them bodies hit the floor
invaded
taken
rapend
killed
slaved
chained
oppressed
still we survivors
P about when survivors we came from sacred places to racist times australia it's time to recognize were survivors
They would rather compensate us than give us recognition
in other words i would rather are you out of your tradition
