Track Name: Marcia Langton (Wayland/Moginie)
Best we forget
the cultural genocide
the endless massacres
"We don't need to rely on the longsocks" ( Langton )
On the sacred coast
we"ll drink a toast
to Alice the Elephant
buried near the blood of the ancestors
the Tamarama "Wonderland"
" I'm trendy .. I'm OK and tama all the day " ( old tama graffiti )
"We don't need to rely on the longsocks"
It's not taught in the schools
It's not inscribed on the headlands
the songs and the languages are gone
it's easier to let them lie
for the stories they tell are too tough to swallow
Marcia Langton tells it true and deadly
We don't need to rely on the FIFO's
"We don't need to rely on the longsocks"
Track Name: Change me (Wayland)
Can i change me?
Will I be the same forever?
I'll break free from the train tracks
I lay down
Could you show me ?
Can I change forever ?
Do you know ?
Could you change ?
Track Name: Scum Valley (Wayland)
In Scum Valley ( Bondi )
I had you all to myself back then.
I took the 365 right to the Vallis Milk bar
For another game.
A game or 2.
Ramp 2 , Cheyne Horan in the slot.
After asteroids for another game or 2.
Track Name: Summercloud Bay / Booderee (Wayland)
The winter mist is low
The long highway south
It's past Gerringong

Still your minds with guys that go out at Summercloud

It's an ancient rock platform
It's wearing a midden
Aboriginal soul will never go

Aboriginals , the originals
Now your both attached to their land
