Stolen

Author Comments

This was for a school assignment.
We had to write and record a protest song.
My friend Rose is playing the guitar and I'm singing, I wrote the lyrics.
It's about the stolen generation of Indigenous People in Australia who haven't been listened to and also their suffering that is currently being ignored by Australian society.
Any comments appreciated!

Heart breaking

Its quite an amazing song, it reminds me how dark human nature can be, and thats what makes it heart breaking. All I can say is its an amazing piece of work, though I believe I heard you sorta laugh in some parts of the song, but that doesn't matter, what matters is the message brought out by the song

cool

great.just a little hard to figure out what it's saying.....but a good song still.why this came up when I searched "Geno" I dont know.but who cares.

am-WEE responds:

Cause it's about the Stolen 'Gen'eration. I would have posted the lyrics, but you can see them on my deviant Art on my page if you really wanna read them!

amazing

Very impressive!
I like the laugh in the middle of singing =D

Do you still have all the original audio tracks?

am-WEE responds:

That is pretty much the original audio track. I recorded it using Pro-Tools and the file was compressed but yeah.

Great

A little Shaky and RARELY off key, but overall a solid performance and I think that if u work at it u could be an amazing singer. keep it up!

am-WEE responds:

Thankyou! I only recorded it once, if i tried i few times i reckon i would have been able to make it perfect! haha

vurry nice

you should apply your cello skills to this song

am-WEE responds:

i was going to but i didn't have enough time!
i also thought it might not fit with the theme of the song cause cello's aren't really indigenous australian instruments
i might give it a go some time though!
