Lyrics

Lay Fear Down

Walking on the land
Immersed in its expanse
By forest rock or sand
Through sun and rain advance
Walking on the land.

Sailing on the sea
Afloat upon a deep
Landing on the beach
Of the land they want to keep
After sailing on the sea.

Can it be, can it be, can it be worked out?
Can we lay, can we lay, lay fear down?

Two peoples in the sun
One has spears one has guns
The first is overrun
By the sailors that have come
To be peoples in the sun.

The imprints bare feet make
Are easy to erase
But fire and stories made
Are not so easy to take
As the imprint bare feet make.

Can it be, can it be, can it be worked out?
Can we lay, can we lay, lay fear down?

Comes a rising tide
Spreading farms deeper mines
Towns and cities rise
A burgeoning of life
Amid a rising tide.

The Dreaming's never spent
There's country still to tend
A language of intent
Can now be heard again
As the Dreaming's never spent.

Can it be, can it be, can it be worked out?
Can we lay, can we lay, lay fear down?

Many people in the sun
Those here and those who come
Each wants to make a home
A place to call their own
And be people in the sun.

The time has come to say
There's space for all who stay
And a reckoning to be made
With those who long await
A time to have their say.

Can it be, can it be, can it be worked out?
Can we lay, can we lay, lay fear down?

Lay fear down.
