L.A.B. – No Roots Lyrics

No Roots Lyrics – L.A.B.

That thing, I walk by the river
Remembering the days of young
My mum, the food she delivered
Our bellies were so full and fun
We heard a plane in the air flying up above
The enemy from overseas
I grabbed my family by the hands and we ran away
We’re running from the enemy

No roots, no roots, no culture
We’re running from the enemy
No roots, no roots, no culture
I’m hiding with my family

Inside a room we would hide when the sun was gone
So quiet as we hid through the night
I heard a man through the window on the telephone
They’re searching for my family and I
I take a chance with the gun holding in my hand
Behind it we would seek through the night
I pulled the trigger to his head, now his life is gone
My family we are free for the night

Say, no roots, no roots, no culture
We’re hiding in the thick of the night
No roots, no roots, no culture
My family will fight for our lives

There’s no price they can put on our name
My hearts fighting in the game
They tried to take my family apart
It’s a war that you don’t want to start

And now the tables have turned on the enemy
Almighty God has answered my cries
Sometimes a friend is also a frenemy
They’re smiling with them lying eyes
Just like in life, there’s a war everywhere around
And you can be the shining light
They took their bombs, their guns, the enemy
They’re running in the dead of the night

Our roots, our roots, our culture
No one can take that feeling from me
Our roots, our roots, our culture
The power of the totara tree, yeah
Our roots, our roots, our culture
No one can take that feeling from me, no
Our roots, our roots, our culture
The power of the totara tree
