Homesick - Resist: Invasion​/​Rebuild: Solidarity

from by No! to Rape Culture

lyrics

Our finger’s on the trigger
Slip from sanity
You know I’m losing it
Give in to this hate that’s been bred in me
Indoctrinated this from birth
Taught the foundations to live in this world with apathy

The powerless and enslaved
Gagged, bound and in chains
We are the hopeless generation

But still you wave your flags and say it’s all in the past
You say I’m free

And every Invasion Day
The attempted assimilation of my ancestry
Becomes so clear to me
The underlining racism and bigotry

But still you wave your flags and say it’s all in the past
It was cultural genocide
But still you wave your flags and tell me free

Don’t tell me I’m free

And in 1788 death was brought to this place
Cultural annihilation
A time in history that will resonate
But still you wave your flag and tell me I’m free

/

Brothers and sisters listen to me
I want you to be part of the struggle
Don’t just sit back and watch as we bleed

Don’t say you want to stand with us
I want to stand in solidarity
But solidarity is not enough
Got to take action and fight the system

There’s no freedom for any of us
