BLAK MATRIARCHY Lyrics – BARKAA

[Intro: Barkaa]
I am tired of begging and asking for our humanity. When is it enough?

[Verse 1: Barkaa]
Can’t colonise my blak mind
I’m from the Dreamtime, I go back (Ayy)
They committed genocide through my tracks
They raped our mothers, lessened my black (Ayy)
They brought the violence when they attacked
I ain’t here to start trouble, I’m just here to state facts (Tell ’em)
You can’t paint me how you wanna paint cracks
And I’m tied to my mob, got my mob on my back (Hah)
Waratahs are covered in blood
White-washin’ our history to cover it up
Proof is all in the puddin’, cuz
This nation couldn’t give a f*ck about us
Wе survive unceded, undividеd
Our people stay fighting ’cause the flame is ignited
We stay righteous, we cannot be silenced
‘Cause silence is violence, the reason we’re divided
And they choose not to digest the truth
Instead they just go ahead and dilute our youth (f*ck ’em)
You only like the system ‘cause it just suits you
Give a f*ck about the law, yeah, I’d rather grass roots (Uh)
Blak to the bone, blak to the busy
Mob on my back, yeah, they all rock with me
Barkaa in my blood, that river flow through me
I’m matriarchal bloodline one-twenty
[Chorus: Barkaa]
This for the blak matriarchs
This for my sisters who lived in the dark
This for my sisters who carry our past on their shoulders
This is for blak matriarchs
This is all of our women, this for all of our children
Couldn’t care less ‘bout the monarch
I’ma set fire to the kingdom
I’m coming for them, all hail to blak matriarchs

[Verse 2: Barkaa]
I’m the pain and the proof (Tell ’em)

The history that lays out the truth (Tell ’em)
And they couldn’t walk a mile in our shoes
Tell us to go bush when they all introduced
f*ck it, we’ve been here for too long
Matriarchy blood, yeah, I been built strong (Yup)
Song lines deep, yeah it got me singing songs
Cause I can’t forget where I came from
Barkindji country, Mungo Man
Pass it to my kids, tell ’em “This your land”
I came from the dirt, go back in red sand
Desert river Nhuungku, I’m proud of who I am
Creator created me tough (Hah)
And I’m callin’ out all your bluffs
Saying the past is all in the past
Well that dark past still lives in my mum
I stay radical, I know the truth
Couldn’t kill my Ancestors, I’m the proof
I know I still got some screws loose
But my third eye’s open and I’m looking right through
Looking at you, Nhuungku right here gonna do what it do
So my little blak seeds ain’t got to prove shit to you
Ngayti sent me gone, bud, what do
Three percent me hold it down for the few (Ayy, ayy, ayy, ayy)
[Chorus: Barkaa]
This for the blak matriarchs
This for my sisters who lived in the dark
This for my sisters who carry our past on their shoulders
This is for blak matriarchs
This is all of our women, this for all of our children
Couldn’t care less ‘bout the monarch
I’ma set fire to the kingdom
I’m coming for them, all hail to blak matriarchs

[Outro: Rosalie Kunoth-Monks]
You know I have a culture, I am a cultured person. Don’t try and suppress me and don’t call me a problem! I have never left my country. I am not the problem
