  1. Hip Hop, schmip pop, I hate it it all! HOWEVER, you do our First Owners proud with your messages that might just wake up more than a few of us whities to the true grit problems and our continued decimation of our First Owners and their culture because of our vile influence & treatment of them. Now, if you were to sing like Geoffrey G. I'd listen all day – why not try to sing normal melodies for us 'ol folks so we too can enjoy your spot-on truths! Much respect to you Briggs!

  2. Be bloody fantastic if we could all talk properly together, no Political BS or Pigs, just one person to another, human! Fk Government etc..we could all get along & work shit out for real without those bastards in our way! I'd love to have that chance, we could get along better for sure! My Great Great Grandma on my Mums side was Aboriginal but looking at me you couldn't tell i was at all as from my Dads English, Scottish, Irish, White skin & dumped here from the criminal side & Native too so I ain't taken a thing as I come from here & was abandoned here too! I'd love to just talk together, without any bloody law or Siuts, just us getting to understand each other, not having a big wall of shame & vengeance hating to even our own but unknown! I love you all too! Hoping for that day, sooner the better! (Have to meet at a spot the gov or pigs wouldn't go or know & have a productive conversation!) Its over due & we can help each other if Authorities weren't always screwing everything up, we need to talk to each other, Fk the ?? That thinks he's or she's or they're incharge…like that's worked well all these years…arseholes…they don't give a flying Fuck! Cunts! Be best person to person for sure & productive & understanding unlike any BS Authorities Interference! We don't need them, they always make it worse & when or if we do here of anything, even news on Australia as a whole is literally non existent! Here's wishing for better days in a short time coming! Love to All! From Melanie in S.A. xxx

  4. Briggs is going to make a difference in this country, he may be one of the most important artists of recent time here. Killer lyricist and nails delivery.

    If you haven't already, check out his work in A.B.Original. It is powerful protest music that is angry, honest and just fucking awesome. This cuntry needs a shake up and Briggs is the man to do it.

    Get it your earballs.

  5. "They've gone from stealing bikes to stealing lives
    So many young hands, gripping stainless-steel knives
    See the kid you don't like, they are messing him up
    What's wrong or what's right is giving less of a fuck
    Sticking them up, left right, stitching them up
    Everything revolves around getting the cut
    Middle fingers up, fisticuffs, pissing it up
    Before the pen licence, fist in the cuffs
    They don't use them to pack shelves, they use them to pack cells
    Up in the system before they even crack 12
    You can paint a pretty picture with all them pastels
    But it's black and white, and the latter still sells
    What kind of life is that? They're getting born and tagged
    Teacher can't reach them, I'm getting fucking bored of that
    They couldn't spell their name off the bat
    I bet they can tell you where to score a quarter at

    They're growing up fast, they are growing up tough
    They're giving back everything they never got as a pup
    And if they want something, you're giving it up

    They're growing up fast, they are growing up tough
    They're giving back everything they never got as a pup
    And if they want something, you're giving it up

    They say one bad apple can spoil a whole bunch
    What if, all you had was bad apples for lunch
    What if, all you had was what you can touch
    What if, before you had a dream you were crushed
    They weren't raised wrong, they weren't raised at all
    You watched the bowel break and the cradle fall
    And now you're surprised that the baby talks
    And he asking 'What the fuck are you staring for?'
    Where are their mothers? (huh) Where are their fathers? (huh)
    Here they are coming all that fucking drummer bruh
    Before you fix him there is another one
    And the problem's tenfold and they are learning tricks younger 'cause
    What you want ain't always what you get
    Sometimes what you get is a kick to the head
    I guess you can chalk it up to 'cause and effect
    But the core is all rotten and they've got to be fed
    They're growing up fast, they are growing up tough
    They're giving back everything they never got as a pup
    And if they want something, you're giving it up

    They're growing up fast, they are growing up tough
    They're giving back everything they never got as a pup
    And if they want something, you're giving it up

    It ain't worth it, who cursed it?
    Point the fingers at the ones who birthed it
    Brought to earth, a brand new person
    The same ones who called them all worthless
    They call them good for nothing, I call them cousin
    I call them brother and sister, I still love them"

    Songwriters: Adam Briggs / Jacob Turier

  6. Still my fave Briggs track in 2017. The Hunt's pretty fkn boss too but this one speaks my truth… Sends me right back to fkn Rockhampton in the early 90s. Think Shep's bad? Try Rocky back in the day yo.

  7. One of the most powerful songs I've heard in a long time. Briggs manages to articulate complex issues through music. We've got a long way to go as a nation but people like Briggs are helping us get there quicker.
