Spear of Destiny

‘Spear of Destiny' was written, recorded and shot in just four days in Townsville, as part of the Song Nation 2013 storytelling tour of Australia.

LYRICS

Wadda Mooli — Maiem we the warriors, yep
With a spear and a whap we was destined to rep
Before time — to my very last breath
‘The blood of the warrior beats in my chest’

My spear is my knowledge, tip to drive through
From my ancestors passed down to me and you
We the warriors — yep, got spirit within
Pride in my people — colour of my skin

Genocide, rations, Centrelink, jail
Stood up in court and shown how you fail
I am the lost warrior, father, man
Once held a spear, replaced by a tin can

Bound by tradition I’m that man on a mission
I’m a listen to the rhythm of my ancestor’s vision
My ambition, the warrior, born and bred
In the name of my children I’m a use my head

CHORUS

Callin’ all my backup — I represent/present
The black trackers, the grandfathers
The black brothers, the headhunters
The big balas, the baby mamas
Blood of the warrior

Callin all the murris, I represent — present
The father, the role model, the lore maker
The leg shaker, the groundbreaker
Blood of the Warrior

L to the O to the R to the E
My lore, my life, my culture is me
L for my land O for original
R for respect for my fellow Aboriginal

E for my elders that show me the way
That made me the warrior I am today
To all my young Murris we in this together
Time to man up bruz – now or never

CHORUS

The black trackers, the grandfathers
The black brothers, the headhunters
The big balas, the baby mamas
Blood of the warrior

Callin all the murris, I represent — present
The father, the role model, the lore maker
The leg shaker, the groundbreaker
Blood of the Warrior
