This song is absolutely dedicated to our courageous ANZAC men. They were fed lies and encouraged to kill.. as if killing ever brought peace. They were fed to the cannons because it was decided that their lives mattered less than those of the commanders, those directing and fuelling the horror. I'm so sorry, for it seems to have become a forgotten sacrifice.
It’s time to rise above. It’s time to remember.

lyrics

It's ANZAC day today, and they say, "Salute your heroes, don't let the memories fade..
Let us not forget the way that they gave, so full of bravery, in a war of necessity, so that I could be free."
Suddenly shipped away, 'cos we've made ties with the allies, and we must stay in the game,
We lost a generation, we risk doing it again, if we don't protect our freedoms, if we don't make friends..
Remember why, remember how
Remember all of the things that you were taught 'till now
Remember truth, remember lies; we let ourselves be killed for someone else's pride.
Remember why, remember how, remember shadows of a culture that was lost 'till now,
Remember hope, remember love; Remember before war is ever spoken of..
The truth is we must find way; we've got to stop creating conflict for the money that it makes;
Lives are not investments and they're not for you to deal, we must tolerate religion and let the people heal,
The biggest war to fight today is the one where the bankers get their way..
We'll sell our countries for free trade; God defend our Free Land
Remember why, remember how
Remember all of the things that you were taught 'till now
Remember truth, remember lies; we let ourselves be killed for someone else's pride.
Remember why, remember how, remember shadows of a culture that was lost 'till now,
Remember hope, remember love; Remember before war is ever spoken of..
Remember, remember, remember, remember love
If we can see, we can learn, and from the shadows of the darkness may we be reborn
If we can make, we can solve, remember echoes of the days we've never spoken of..
We all feel hurt, we all feel pain, but from the ashes of the fallen we will rise again
If we can stand, we must also bow; Remembering that we are all connected now
Remember, remember, God defend our Free Land
Remember why, remember how
Remember all of the things that you were taught 'till now
Remember truth, remember lies; we let ourselves be killed for someone else's pride.
Remember why, remember how, remember shadows of a culture that was lost 'till now,
Remember hope, remember love; Remember before war is ever spoken of..
