Artist's Description

Speak-em up country,
call forth the Tjukurritja
the Spirit of life.

Speak-em up country,
sing-em for the saddened,
dispossessed and the poor.

Speak words of truth where life stagnates;
make-em clean and refreshing agen.

Think-em up ancestral forces,
as we approach the cleansing hour.

Pray care-fully in the stillness of night;
de-spell the half-truths and blind fear.

Step-away from the mind-shackles
and the paining of greed.
Stride free in the rhythms of Gondwana.

Come-on you mob,
rise-up above the dawning of our plight.

Rekindle and build-em ritual fires,
as in the times when magic and mystics
and Ancestral Beings
were held in high-esteem.

Speak-em up country,
chant the sounds of natural law.
Declare this sacred calling,
watch-over this sacred site.

Speak-em up country,
this place Australia;
what are you waiting for?

Speak-em up,
and let Her need be known.

~ Gondwana began to break up in the mid-Jurassic (about 167 million years ago), when East Gondwana, comprising Antarctica, Madagascar, India and Australia, began to separate from Africa.

Australia began to separate from Antarctica perhaps 80 million years ago (Late Cretaceous), but sea-floor spreading between them became most active about 40 million years ago.

New Zealand probably separated from Antarctica between 130 and 85 million years ago.
