Older than Kosciuszko, darwin' down to Alice Springs
Dealers in the clearinghouse, the settlements explode
High up in the homelands, miners drive across the land
Encounter no resistance, when the people block the road

Older than Kosciuszko, dry white seasons years ago
Darkness over Charleville, the fires begin to grow

No end to the hostility, now they want to be somewhere else
No stranger to brutality, now they'd like to be someone else

Older than Kosciuszko, 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 want to 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 want to be somewhere else
No stranger to brutality, now they'd like to be someone else
