The Dead Heart
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
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

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
Not broken

Mining companies
Pastoral companies
Uranium companies, companies, ah

Collected companies
Got more rights than people, yeah
Got more say than people, yeah
More say than the people, oh yeah
More say than people, oh yeah
More say than people, oh yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

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

Dead heart
Dead heart
The dead heart
Oh it lives here

The dead heart
The dead heart
The dead heart
It lives here
