About this track...

Co-written with Kevin Bennett in 2017. The gloomy lyrics describe a journey inspired by one of Jacob’s female elders and her story through Stolen Generation. It's character driven from transitional moments in her life all whilst being fed a false sense of security from the Bullyman (Government Official). As she's exposed to the world, she realises the protection was never real
