We don't serve your country, don't serve your king
Know your custom, don't speak your tongue
White man came took everyone

We don't serve your country, don't serve your king
White man listen to the songs we sing
White man came took everything

We carry in our hearts the true country
And that cannot be stolen
We follow in the steps of our ancestry
And that cannot be broken

We don't serve your country, don't serve your king
Know your custom, don't speak your tongue
White man came took everyone

We don't need protection, don't need your hand
Keep your promise on where we stand
We will listen, we'll understand

We carry in our hearts the true country
And that cannot be stolen
We follow in the steps of our ancestry
And that cannot be broken

We carry in our hearts the true country
And that cannot be stolen
We follow in the steps of our ancestry
And that cannot be broken

Broken!

Mining companies
Pastoral companies
Uranium companies
Collected companies
Got more right than people
Got more say than people, oh yeah
More say than people, oh yeah
More say than people, oh yeah
More say than people, oh yeah

My heart!

Forty thousand years can make a difference to the state
of things

The dead heart
The dead heart
The dead heart
Lives here!

The dead heart
The dead heart
The dead heart
Lives here!
