Story

for Aboriginal Australia, the word Dreaming has a meaning far in excess of what the rest of the world considers dreaming.

Lyrics

“WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING” WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING x 3 HAVE TWO EYES BUT NOT FOR SEEING - HAVE TWO EARS BUT NOT FOR HEARING HAVE TWO FEET BUT NOT FOR TREADING - HAVE THE LAND BUT KNOW NO COUNTRY BLACK MAN TELLS ME OH SO BLUNTLY - WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING THESE WORDS HAVE ALTERED MEANING x 3 STOPS ME IN MY WAY OF BEING - TELLS ME THAT I’M HARD OF HEARING SHOWS THE FLIGHT BUT LEAVES ME STANDING -- SEES A STEP WHICH CAN BE TAKEN IS A VOICE WHICH NEEDS BE SPOKEN - WHITE MEN HAVE NO DREAMING TAKE ME FORTY GENERATIONS AND I’M BACK ON SACRED GROUND AND KNOW A REAL CONNECTION TO THE BEINGS ALL AROUND WE LOST THAT DEEP PERCEPTION AND THAT COUNTRY IS NOT FOUND BUT IT NEVER REALLY ENDED, JUST SUSPENDED FOR A TIME NEVER WAS SUSPENDED, THAT WAS ONLY IN OUR MIND NEVER COULD BE ENDED, WE JUST ETHNICALLY CLEANSED OUR MIND ….. FEW MEN WILL KNOW THEIR DREAMING x 3 BLACK OR WHITE TO FIND THAT MEANING. … WE CAN NAME IT MYTH AND LEGEND YOU CAN NAME IT OUR PERCEPTION…. THIS IS NOT ABOUT BELIEVING THIS IS NOT ABOUT DECEIVING … IF ONE MAN CAN HAVE A DREAMING JUST THE SAME AS IN YOUR MEANING….. ONE, THEN ALL COULD SHARE THIS DREAMING ONE THEN ALL COULD SHARE YOUR MEANING
