3% – OUR PEOPLE Lyrics

OUR PEOPLE Lyrics

You know I’m just tryna make it alright
But maybe we’re just gunna try to be someone
Go and let the system burn to kingdom come

Too accustomed to the westernised
Laying on a bed of lies or bed of knives
Dread bed at night fairytale titled ‘Better Times’
Fictional glass slippers and pumpkins
You ain’t know nothing
Young Hercules done heard it from Pegasus they up to something
My homies rolling beanstalks
Giants and golden geese talk
Wolf in sheep’s clothing
The magic beans never been bought
U can suck my Moby Dick
Not playing with these little pigs
The apple filled with little drips of poison u don’t need a kiss
Wake up before it’s too late to notice they changed the narrative
Sugar coat the lies with all of the funny characters
Manipulate the masses and never tell them the half of it
And that’s only the half of it

I’m here with all of my people
Locked up with all of my people
So let me hear you scream if you’re with me…

They locked us up then they threw away the key
It’s the stolen generations haunting in the trauma that I see
And that’s the part of our history of which we never speak
Always moving backwards keeps the future outta reach
Uh
Let’s separate the men from the boys
They dropped that money on the marketing they failed hear the voice
I shouldn’t talk like this
My country fukn sick
3% the new Pemulwuy
We don’t fukn miss
Do as ya told or that’s cuffs on wrist
You’re ten years old then that’s cuffs on the wrist
They stole the land in the name of their kings
Now look how they act when you mention Alice Springs

You know I’m just tryna make it alright
But maybe we’re just gunna try to be someone
Go and let the system burn to kingdom come

But now I’m not gunna see my daughter cry
From all the shit that I’ve had hold of me for life
Not gunna let it hold on to us one more time

I see my people always
Locked Up Locked up Locked up Locked up
Why my people always
Locked Up Locked up Locked up Locked up
Free my people always
Locked Up Locked up Locked up Locked up
Here My people
Locked Up Locked up Locked up Locked up

I’m here with all of my people
Locked up with all of my people
So let me hear you scream if you’re with me…

From valleys to skies you’ve made this land full with lies
Made up story your disguise make out everything’s alright

I see your makin more shit up about us
But I’m here with all my people so speak louder

When you next come around talkin this shit aloud
Know were loud black and proud and we ain’t backing down

I’ve got all my brothers standing here around us
So hold onto your shit we’re getting riled up

You know I’m just tryna make it alright
But maybe we’re just gunna try to be someone
Go and let the system burn to kingdom come

But now I’m not gunna see my daughter cry
From all the shit that I’ve had hold of me for life
Not gunna let it hold on to us one more time

Nooooo I
