Terra Nullius, a convenient lie.
Taught it in our schools, yet we wondered why
when Indigenous girls broke down and cried.
We were NEVER taught the price in Indigenous lives.
The reality of it was invasion and genocide,
and even language couldn’t survive the genocide;
of six hundred dialects, less than two hundred survive.
Terra Nullius, a convenient ‘white lie’.
But Tony Abbott still dropping the line,
Coz who gives a fuck about the truth anyway right?
