(starting in C C)


C C G G C C
For all of our languages we can't communicate
G G Am Am
For all of our native tongues we're all natives here
Em Em Am Am C C
Sons of their fathers' dream the same dream
G G Am Am
The sound of forbidden words becomes a scream
F F G G
Voices in anger, victims of history
Am Am G G F F G G C C
Plundered and set aside, grown fat on swallowed pride.


C C G G C C
With promises of paradise and gifts of beads and knives
G G Am Am
Missionaries and pioneers are soldiers in disguise
Em Em Am Am C C
Saviours and conquerors they make us wait
G G Am Am
The fishers of men they wave their truth like bait
F F G G
With the touch of a stranger's hand innocence turns to shame
Am Am G G F F G G C C
The spirit that dwelt within now sleeps out in the rain.


C C G G C C
For all of our languages we can't communicate
G G Am Am
For all of our native tongues we're all natives here
Em Em Am Am C C
The scars of the past are slow to disappear
G G Am Am
The cries of the dead are always in our ears
F F G G
Only the very safe can talk about wrong or right
Am Am G G F F G G C C
Of those who are forced to choose some will choose to fight

C C G G C C
For all of our languages we can't communicate
