Can you hear the drums, Adani?
I remember long ago when burning
coal spread warm delight
In the firelight, Adani
Generations fell in love
while maybe strumming on guitars
Not a thought of distant drums
No knowledge of disaster falling from the stars

(But) now we know the truth Adani
Every man & every woman knows t cause of climate change
We are not afraid, Adani
For the Earth we’ll stand our ground
And your Headquarters occupy
W’ won’t be ashamed of jail
The act of non-compliance is our battle cry

There’s more carbon in the air each night
We’ve got to fight Adani
Causing climate change for you and me
(There’s) no planet B, Adani
And we know that we must never lose      The stage is set –
We’ll occupy your office suite  Until you’re beat Adani.

When we’re old and grey Adani
We’ll remember what we did when danger
looked us in the eyes
Will you dig that coal Adani?
Hist’ry will recall your part (if you) poison water with your hand
Can you see it in our eyes
How proud we are to fight for farmers in this land

There’s more carbon in the air each night    We’ve got to fight Adani
Causing climate change for you and me    (There’s) no planet B, Adani
And we know that we must never lose               The stage is set –
We’ll occupy your office suite  Until you’re beat Adani.
We’ll visit you at port and pit  Until you quit Adani
We’ll sing and dance and use our luuuuuungs  –

Can you hear the drums?  Adani
