Every part of this Land is sacred to the people I hold close to my heart,
Every single gum leaf, coastal cliff, mountain valley, and desert,
Every vapour of eucalyptus, peppermint, tea tree and fire.
Every taste of mountain devil and callistemon on my lips sweet desire.
Every single gum tree carries the memories of the ancestors of this land,
Every blood spill, every fear is what I now have on my hands.
