Song lyrics- The Malfunction Room

Reconciliation

I heard the roar of a crowd
The sounds of anger and pain,
The sounds of feet marching
Through the sounds of the rain,
The sounds of the hungry,
The tired and forlorn
But in the sounds of the dying
I heard the cry of the born.

It's a vast open sound,
A new flag unfurled,
It's the sound of the living,
Perhaps a new world,
It's the beat of a heart
and it comes from the ground.
There is hope for our children
in the heart of this sound.

We can tear down the walls
And make a new start,
The institutions they built
that keep us apart.
Those men in black suits,
We'll see them no more,
When we unite all the races
and rise from the poor.

There'll be no more lies
In a school history book,
Of the white man's invasion
and the land that they took.
There'll be no more grieving
from deaths behind bars,
When justice is done
We will reach for the stars.

There'll be no more flag
Of white domination.
There'll be no more right wing
So called One Nation.
There'll be no more needy
If there's nothing we need.
There is hope for our children
Down this road we will lead.

There is hope for our children
Down this road we will lead.
