Solid Rock

by Goanna

Goanna is the name used to refer to any number of Australian monitor lizards of the genus Varanus, as well as to certain species from Southeast Asia.




Out here nothin' changes, not in a hurry anyway
You can feel the endlessness, with the comin' of the light of day
We're talkin' 'bout a chosen place
You wouldn't sell it in a marketplace? Well
Well, just a minute now

Standin' on solid rock
Standin' on sacred ground
Livin' on borrowed time
And the winds of change blowin' down the line
Right down the line

Round about the dawn of time, the dreamin' all began
Proud people came
Well, they were lookin' for their promised land
We're runnin' from the heart of darkness
Searchin' for the heart of light
It was their paradise

But they were standin' on solid rock
Standin' on sacred ground
Livin' on borrowed time
And the winds of change were blowin' cold that night, oh

No

Well, they were standin' on the shore one day
They saw the white sails in the sun
Wasn't long before they felt the sting
White man, white law, white gun
Don't tell me that it's justified
'Cause somewhere, well, someone lied
Yeah, well, someone lied
Someone lied, a genocide
Well, someone lied, oh, ah

And now you're standin' on solid rock
Standin' on sacred ground
Livin' on borrowed time
And the winds of change are blowin' down the line

Solid rock
Standin' on sacred ground
Livin' on borrowed time
And the winds of change are blowin' down the line
Solid rock
Standin' on sacred ground
Livin' on borrowed time
And the winds of change are blowin' down the line
Oh-oh, oh, no
No oh
