"Home" as written by and Daniel Gildenloew Pain Of Salvation....
'The white man, he comes and goes. He can go.
But that's our homeland for
Thousands of years. That's our home, and we will never leave. No matter how
Contaminated it gets. We live there! We have always lived there and we will
Always live there.'

This is our home, our roots go deep
Where our ancestors sleep
This is the land we've nursed for countless aeons
But never ours to keep
My tribe is crying, our land is dying
But we can't leave, this is our home
We can't let our past go

We're left with your legacy
Wide awake, deep at our roots
While you move on exploiting
We'll sing lullabies for half a million years

When my son asks why, what will I reply?
But we can't leave, this is our home
We can't let our past go

But we can't leave, this is our home!
If you like concrete alone
Then don't make your high lives depend
On that past that you let go

    General CommentBasically, about indigenous people whose land has been occupied by another group. The first thought most would have would be the native Americans, but I don't know if the song is just about that specific situation. There have been others.

    General CommentWell...
    Lullabies for half a million years? The half-life of radioactive waste is even longer in some cases.

    This reminds me of a certain holy ground of Native Americans that was taken away from them because the hills were almost filled with uranium. After using up the mines, the white man put their radioactive waste into the already radioactive set of tunnels. Heck, if it's already radioactive... Why waste such a perfect hiding spot for lethally radioactive waste? The natives came back on their land, their sacred ground only meant to be visited by shamans who got visions after staying there for a few days...

    You get the picture.
