lyrics

There is something wrong at the heart of this nation
You can see it in disparities in health and education
It’s a crack that runs along the wall and into the foundation
Something’s wrong

And our history is short but too often it’s forgotten
And all that we have left behind is a legacy that’s rotten
It’s time for us to concentrate on things we have in common
Something’s wrong

So what can we say when there is so much left unspoken?
How can we fix all of the things that we have broken?
What should we believe when we don’t know what is real?
And how should I feel when I don’t know how to feel?

This should be a day for us to lessen the divide
To acknowledge past mistakes and keep on building future ties
When your history and culture is stolen and denied
There’s something wrong

So what can we say when there is so much left unspoken?
How can we fix all of the things that we have broken?
What should we believe when we don’t know what is real?
And how should I feel when I don’t know how to feel?

And today’s the day we celebrate the day the white man washed up on the shore
But amongst all of the fanfare I can’t help but feel a little bit unsure
And this is not my legacy
But it is still a part of me
There’s no way that I could understand
How it feels to have someone
Take away your children and your land.

So what can we say when there is so much left unspoken?
How can we fix all of the things that we have broken?
What should we believe when we don’t know what is real?
And how should I feel when I don’t know how to feel?
