When the Rainbow Serpent first travelled this land

He covered it with veins to bring life as he planned

The water ran deep and could ever find its way

Across desert through mountains often it played

And wherever it ran the fishes swam free

Knowing that this was where they’re meant to be

Now bring in man and his greed for this gold

That ran through the land ancient and old

Selfish they fenced and the Serpent was mad

His plan was for all to share what they had

So the rivers dry up and the fish are all dying

And the men who covet continue their lying

We need to step back and remember the plan

Before all we have left is nothing but sand
