Midnight Oil – Warakurna Lyrics

MIDNIGHT OILWarakurna Lyrics
There is enough
There is enough for everyone
There is enough, mmm
(There is enough)
In Redfern as there is in Alice
(There is enough)
This is not the Buckingham Palace
(There is enough)
This is the crown land
This is the brown land
This is not our land
Some folks live in water tanks
Some folks live in red brick flats
(There is enough)
Law is carved in granite
(There is enough)
It’s been shaped by wind and rain
(There is enough)
White law could be wrong
(There is enough)
Black law must be strong
Warakurna, cars will roll
Don’t drink by the water hole
Court fines on the shop front wall
Beat the grog and save your soul
Some people laugh, some never learn
This land must change or land must burn
Some people sleep, some people yearn
This land must change or land must burn
Diesel and dust is what we breathe
This land don’t change and we don’t leave
Some people live, some never die
This land don’t change, this land must lie
Some people leave, always return
This land must change or land must burn
Warakurna, camels roam
Fires are warm and dogs are cold
Not since Lassiter was here
Black man’s got a lot to fear
Some people laugh, some never learn
This land must change or land must burn
Some people leave, always return
This land must change or land must burn
This land must change or land must burn
This land must change or land must burn
