lyrics

Those white colonial programs, they're destroying.
Those white colonial programs, destroying.

I was born in a privileged home,
where everything was taken care of safe and warm,
and now I know my country always had it wrong,
cause they treated me like I'm special, something more, with those

White colonial programs, they're destroying,
Those white colonial programs, destroying.

Looking in the mirror knowing what I know,
I see the face of terror scooping kids from their homes,
And now I have a couple children of my own,
So the sight of my reflection is emotional, with those

White colonial programs, they're destroying,
Those white colonial programs, destroying.

Colonial, Colonial, Colonial, destroying...

We are out of line,
Cause the laws are racist,
the laws are genderized,
And we are far from fine,
Cause Canada is guilty of genocide!
We are out of line,
Cause the laws are racist,
the laws are genderized,
And we are far from fine,
Cause Canada is guilty of genocide!

Cause Canada is guilty of genocide!
Colonial, colonial,
Canada is guilty of genocide!

Systematic racism has got to go,
and the sense of entitlement that we're valued more,
and everyones ideas of how to progress,
need to shut the fuck up,
and listen to the voice of those oppressed by the

White colonial programs, they're destroying,
Those white colonial programs, destroying.
