Kosciusko Lyrics

Older than Kosciusko
Darwin down to Alice Springs
Dealers in the clearing house
The settlements explode

High up in the homelands
Miners drive across the land
Encounter no resistance
When the people block the road

Older than Kosciusko
Dry white seasons years ago
Darkness over Charleville
The fires begin to grow

No end to the hostility
Now they wanna be somewhere else
No stranger to brutality
Now they'd like to be someone else

Older than Kosciusko
Driven back to Alice Springs
Endless storm and struggle
Marks the spirit of the age

High up in the homelands
Celebration 'cross the land
Builds up like a cyclone
Now the fires begin to rage

No end to the hostility
Now they wanna be somewhere else
No stranger to brutality
Now they'd like to be someone else

Call off the ultimatum
No, don't turn away
Call off the ultimatum until yesterday

Call off the ultimatum
No, don't turn away

Bind up the brokenhearted
No, don't turn away
Call off the ultimatum until yesterday

No end to the hostility
Now they wanna be somewhere else
No stranger to brutality
Now they'd like to be someone else

No end to the hostility
Now they wanna be somewhere
