Alexisonfire - The Dead Heart Lyrics




We don't serve your country
don't serve your king
Know your custom don't speak your tongue
White man came took everyone

We don't serve your country
Don't serve your king
White man listen to the songs we sing
White man came took everything

We carry in our hearts the true country
And that cannot be stolen
We follow in the steps of our ancestry
And that cannot be broken

We don't serve your country
We don't serve your king
Know your custom don't speak your tongue
White man came took everyone

We don't need protection
don't need your hand
Keep your promise on where we stand
We will listen we'll understand

We carry in our hearts the true country
And that cannot be stolen
We follow in the steps of our ancestry
And that cannot be broken
We carry in our hearts the true country
And that cannot be stolen
We follow in the steps of our ancestry
And that cannot be broken

Mining companies, pastoral companies
Uranium companies
Collected companies
Got more right than people
Got more say than people

Forty thousand years can make a difference to the state of things
The dead heart lives here

    @braknalnyt Do you even know what New World Order is?

  2. CampSecXXI

    ANIMAAALLLLLLLLL

  3. Jimi X

    love this version

  4. Salohcin

    The original is better by far, but I actually thought the chorus in this version was really good. This cover would have been much better without the more heavy metal bits, in my opinion.

    Colt Savage

    DarthNicky good thing opinions are that, opinions. I think the heavier metal bits make this cover better than the original. Different goats different strokes.

  5. Lucy Potato

    where is it?

  6. ProgrammedForDamage

    Alexis and The Oils, what could be better?

  7. Christian Lanctot

    This much harder to play on the guitar than midnight oil's version because of the faster tempo. The good news is that the guitar part is fairly simple in both versions. They're the same notes. EXACTLY THE SAME NOTES! So if you learn one, you know how to play the other. It sounds different because of the guitar effects on this version but I assure you, it's the same notes.

    I've only been playing guitar 7 months and I got this version dead on.

    Here's a trick: fire up garage band, use the Alexis on fire .mp3 file as a track and record your guitar on another track. I used a slightly modified "sixties basic blues" with my Yamaha Pacific 102J plugged right into the mac's line in jack. Came out pretty good.

    +Christian Lanctot *Much* harder because of the faster tempo? Are you kidding? Its about 5bpm faster dude, maaaaybe 10

    aeragonia811

    Wow, thanks for the tips man. I knew the comments section of a youtube video was the place to get unsolicited guitar advice. And from an amateur no less.

  8. Kylee marie

    Heinz Fred

  13. Ryan Thomas-Sontag

    @braknalnyt You talk about the old days with no corruption, yet you used racial slurs. FUCKIN DUMBASS LOL. You didn't even realize you contadicted yourself lmfao

  14. Ryan Thomas-Sontag

    @Ethanodd1 You sir, just won. Have a cookie :D

  15. Ethan Aguilar

    @braknalnyt

    You speak of a time with no corruption, but in the same rant you use racial slurs. I'm sorry, but your argument is no longer valid.

    You get NOTHING. YOU LOSE! Good day, sir!

  16. Justin Catholic

    @braknalnyt i am native too...i totally agree with you...thanks to whiteppl who tought us to speak like them...but we cant trust goverment

  17. Nicolas Guillemot

    @braknalnyt Who is the white man? You are on a crusade against an invisible enemy. A large majority of people in North America have pale skin, and only an insignificantly small minority of them have personal issues against first nations.

    Instead of getting hung up on a 2 century old rivalry by being a hypocrite racist, you should just bury the freakin axe and try to make the world a good place for people of all races. An eye for an eye makes the whole world blind.

  18. GrammyDude22

    @braknalnyt Do you even know what New World Order is?

  19. jerric simpson

    @Zatech well i do have a an education, im a self- employed, hard working native american! and the whiteman is nothing but a ruthless lier!! Look at what he's doing to the ppl of the world today!! check out this video on here and then maybe you'll think twice! new world order defined!!

  20. Nicolas Guillemot

    @braknalnyt go get an education instead of blaming other people for being a useless shit

  21. jerric simpson

    IM A NATIVE BROTHER AND I CAN UNDERSTAND! THAT WE CANT TRUST THE WHITEMAN!!!!!

    Lucy Potato

    not sure where the insult to any of you is from, please elaborate on these comments? Midnight Oil is from Australia, what do you know about them? And since we're going so native, what do you all know about the Maori's?

  22. illXplicit
