We Were Here You Know!

Kaiyu Bayles

Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change it?

I have to ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

This our Island home

Free n easy we roam.

Disrupted 100,000 years of peace

For convicts and their police.

You’ve no jurisdiction,

With a history like science fiction.

Cause we have listened, we have learned,

We have laughed, cried and yearned…

So this Westminster system with no jurisdiction

Is about to be overturned.

 

Confusioned, disillusion,

where’s this rebelution?

Keep a check on how we feel,

Are we all keeping it real?

Keep checkin our relations

Cause from nation to nation

We are all racin to nowhere land and

We need to understand…

 

It’s not meant to be like this

Feelin helpless

Not meant to feel like this

Clenchin our fists.

And if we kneel and pray each day,

Is it always going to feel this way?

 

(Language)

 

GOORI’S!!!!!!!!!!

Rise up, Rise up, Rise up.

Sovereign people still today

For a new day, for our old ways.

Time to thrive, we have survived.

Even modern day genocide.

Colonisation, segregation, assimilation and now reconciliation…

Got all our ears achin!

So let’s go walkabout n coorooboree now..

Dreamin’s alla time – anytime,

 

Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to  ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

It’s not meant to be like this

Lacking a mothers kiss

Not meant to feel like this

Lil joyfulness

If we kneel n pray, for it to go away

Is it always goin to feel this way?

 

This land where you stand needs man to understand

This is sacred land,

Everywhere you walk, sit or stand,

Our people been there.

Home 2 da rainbow serpent and the red sand

Law, histories, song and dance.

It’s coming back from the surface

To put an end to this circus.

We know a better way

From living in a better day.

Now Sssshhh, while we watch our children play.

There ain’t no mystery

We governed, we tilled and documented history.

In 2011 you can’t get away with Invasion

Put an end to this illegal occupation, of a nation,

Stop rations, listen, be patient.

Kicking off the heads of our next generation,

Now still victims of corporate racists.

We the key ingredient!

All this talk, anybody meanin it?

Experience and understanding is seldom

Yet knowledge plus consequences, equals, wisdom.

Don’t it?

 

Not meant to be like this,

Life is politics

Not meant to feel like this

Bunch of lunatics at it,

If we try a different way

Is it always goin to feel this way?

 

(Language)

 

Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!

 

No, No, No,

It’s not to be this way

Our spirit still strong today

It’s not meant to feel this way

Sing, dance, shout now n play

The ole way back for a new day.

 

Together: Dedicated to our great, great, great, great, greats,

we shall b free In our home country.

To all our childrens, childrens, childrens, children,

Keep on smiling and thrivin on your Aboriginal Island.

 

Chorus:

We were here you know?

Long, long, long, long time ago.

In this bright green country

For us to all roam freely

Why would you change It?

I have to  ask this nation.

Got to realise it.

Then Indigenize It!
