Midnight Oil - First Nation

Letra en inglés y Vídeo de la canción, First Nation - Midnight Oil ft. Jessica Mauboy & Tasman Keith

First nation first nation
First to deserve an explanation
First nation first nation
Last to receive an invitation

First nation first nation
When we gonna start the conversation?
When we gonna start the celebration?
When we gonna end the exploitation?
When we gonna say the word invasion?

Out loud
We’re waiting
Still waiting
Nation within a nation
Nation within a nation

Earth black the church lacked the first fact
80 thou turned demon days and a dirt nap
Generate the trauma that made a kid rage
Now the ment’ capat be filled with all that
Fall back
Why my cousin commit?
Why my uncle locked up?
Why my aunty forget, how to put a glass cup down?
Fighting the fit
We done been brainwashed into fighting the temptay
Fought Armageddon and I be out the next day
Of course I’m a get em till the spirit run empty
My corpse full of venom outcome of the invade
How dare you try to put me up in grave

Strong vision
Tradition
No ticket no admission
No government indecision
No token recognition

First nation, so ancient

Let’s sit down and talk about appropriation
Let’s sit down and talk about compensation
Let’s sit down and talk about reconciliation

Out loud
We’re waiting
Still waiting
Nation within a nation
Still waiting
Nation within a nation

Nation
Nation within a nation

When will the light switch
24/7 in a crisis
White noise killed black thoughts
I sense
theres a shift, it’l come by the nights end

When will the light switch
24/7 in a crisis
White noise killed black thoughts
I sense
theres a shift, see the ship sink like this
