Trying to tell me we ain't going to budge cos it's hurting our
We don't want to think about a couple hundred years of
Drive it like we stole it, never give an inch
The f*** are we kidding?
That ain't Wentworth Falls that is just them
White tears spilling
What side are you sitting?
This might fall on def ears
but cuz we're a custom to it
another death here, in custody
nothing to it
But it's murder come on now just tell the truth
go and have a look at what they did to Miss Dhu
We said in 0'12 a change is gunna come
five years late I think its f**k*n over due
tell ya what I'm a do
I'm a steal the endeavor
give em armageddon
then I'm a tell 'em get over it
Now who lining up for them benefits
my people die now who benefit?
I might burn a flag for the hell of it
I've been through hell and back I'm in my element
Talk about ANZACS but ignore what's relevant
push out the blacks leave 'em all in the deficit
I'm tryna live but theres to much death in it
Murder murder, murder they drew black blood white page & a burner for who,
never converted so my verses always versing with you,
mission fill the prison livin' with the blackest of views.. ahh..
On Janaree two six, I'm pullin' up with the embassy on my 72 shit,
my summary could book some whole Mob deep change what son it's all a shook one...
all they took from, all the crooks run, captain cook dead who I am mistook one...
I am the dry land and the lap lap, demand the man to stand face to black facts,
fade to black tracks, make the whack lack days celebratin' for a nation without back..
sick of f**k*n waitin' for reparations we pacin', invasion and stolen children keep a country so complacent
Some say what's in a date?
Some say what's in a name?
Homie that's one and the same
And I ain't pointing no fingers
I ain't throwing no blame
Just saying that we can do better
You know that it's time for a change
Annual - black family at the march
While my white fam celebrate on the charge
Got the J's on the tunes
Holiday's an excuse
BBQ'in and booze
Patriots comin through
Do I start the convo? Or will it kill the mood?
The flag and the date - who does it include?
Seperatin' us like a Hogwarts hat
We need action not magic! Signed, Serious Black.
L-FRESH The LION
It started on the 26th
See we all a bunch of immigrants
But if you African, Arab, Asian or Indian
They say you gotta join the party to be citizen
Huh And carry the legacy of invasion
Huh, Man, I ain't celebrating
There's no justification or persuasion
Other than, understand the date needs changing
Sally (Coda Conduct)
So we say we think forward but we choose to back
The dudes reppin' King George and the Union Jack
We're so used to distorting the truth from fact
And beginning our story with a blue flag.
If you put a few snags and a goon sack in 'em
Then everybody loves an opinion
But when your brothers and sisters sayin’ something’s amiss
It’s no ifs, no buts, just listen
Why not break in to your neighbour's house and WAIT on his couch
And make a cup of tea and watch some tele while he's out
And see how that goes down
Kiss the scars of our black histories past
Words to warriors
Bless their resistant hearts
White man missed his mark
I am not fan of it in fact
I will not stand for this cause on this day
One love got ripped apart
Dismantled then put on display
They love it when I talk about my pain,
hate it when a brother see change,
change the date, I'd rather change the game,
cause ain't sh** changed since the day they came.
Black lives turn to black matter,
clap sticks clap to the rhythm of a cocked back hammer clap bang,
here go another officer locking up another one of us like a popular fun thing to do,
another genocide on the BBQ,
they say that their party is a far cry from apartheid
but they still find it hard to divide the two,
and I'm an A.B. Original baby, wave that flaggy yayer,
now eat that sh** and pay me, Lest We Forget Invasion…
Erica (Coda Conduct)
I remember when I was a young kid, learned how to read and write, learned history and long division
But it took a long time before I figured out that we got a history of long division
And listen, I didn't know then cos they didn't teach me
If I don't know now, you know who's to blame
There isn't a reason to keep on like this
Stand up, choose a new date
You can try tell me 'bout everything, everything that you've thought up
'Bout not changing dates, but if anything you are coming up shorter
I know this will come at a price-uh
But it's only a small sacrifice-uh
As soon as the others open their hearts and open their eyes we will rise up!
