This country born on blood of the innocent
They were here first
They were not human so say history
Treated worse than animals
Grave beyond a slave

Lest we forget
The birden of this land
This great southland

Their country torn and women raped
Ripped apart for white mans sake
A culture devoured make no mistake
We must agree to set these people free

Can we describe the living hell
Mothers babies ripped from their breast
Helpless she cries her family destroyed
A life once free raped brutality
Assimilation the name for this pain
A culture scarred forever
Who is at fault for this treacherous deed
The finger is pointed while hearts still bleed
I do not blame you for your mistrust
I am white yet I am not your enemy
I can not begin to relate to your horror
Your pain your loss your death
Forgiveness heals wounds born so deep
Please forgive those who are week
Who look only for difference to break peace
In my heart you are treasured you are great
