Bow Down

by Xavier Rudd

I sit here now 2010 government still stealing land
Making lame excuses for their greed while that
oil spills into the sea
And the Whalers now still killing whales and old
growth bush still being raped
And I know we will have busy lives but sing along
if you have the time
Bow Down to your God
but don't forget about the earth
place your hand on a tree
Who's helping your breath
Give thanks to the sun
when you open your lungs
Throw your buts in the bin
help the old turtles swim
Selling tourism on sacred land while the local
mob sit on their hands
if what I'm speaking here makes any sense open
up my friend and jump the fence
Bow Down to your God
but don't forget about the earth
place your hand on a tree
Who's helping your breath
Give thanks to the sun
when you open your lungs
Throw your buts in the bin
help the old turtles swim
Freedom for all
