Great Unknown Lyrics

by Glenn Shorrock and John Boylan
For million of years, the virgin land lay waiting,
and nobody new what treasures lay undisturbed,
the white man came and settled in easy places,
and the black man knew that soon the tide would turn.
They took the land and wrote the story,
all in the name of king and glory ...
They came in chains to find the answer,
they built on every stone,
but on the way they lost the dreamtime,
out in the great unknown,
out in the great unknown.
A breed of men, some born in desperation,
had to see for themselves, the legends that they'd heard,
to forge a path all the way to the great north ocean,
for men have dreams that fly as high as birds.
They led the way and hold the story,
still in the name of king and glory ...
They broke their chains and found an answer,
they built with every stone,
but on the way they lost the dreamtime,
out in the great unknown,
out in the great unknown.
Men of great vision, but alone in this land,
they have a mission to do all that they can.
What will it mean to future generations?
How will it feel, when we come face to face?
there's only one way to save the situation,
the years ahead, like the past, must be embranced.
So lead the way and tell the story,
all in the name of higher glory ...
So break the chains and find the answer,
built on every stone,
and look to find another dreamtime,
out in the great unknown,
out in the great unknown.
