Older than Kosciusko 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 Kosciusko Dry white seasons years ago Darkness over Charleville The fires begin to glow No end to the hostility Now they wanna be somewhere else No stranger to brutality Now they'd like to be someone else Older than Kosciusko Driven back to Alice Springs Endless storms and struggle Now the fires begin to rage High up in the homelands Celebration 'cross the land Builds up like a cyclone Now the fires begin to rage 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
