lyrics

It Must Be Adieu

From the mangroves of Botany Bay
He could see the tall ships sway
Stormtrooper, skin and bone
Just fighting for his home
Eora Man
Clever Man

I see the shadows playing
I hear sweet sounds, no mayhem
You're moving
You're travelling
Must be adieu
It must be adieu

There’s no hospital bed
That could contain you
With buckshot in your skull
And a leg iron you still ran
Coz payback was your code

The chessboard pieces set
The endgame played, so deft
You had to go to sleep
To breathe the freeman’s air
Eora Man
Clever Man

I see the shadows playing
I hear no sounds no mayhem
You're moving
You're travelling
Must be adieu
It must be adieu

Few history books contain it
No name in lights, no faking it
No movement, so quiet
It must be adieu
It must be adieu
Must be adieu
