Lighthouse Mob - 'Lead The Way'

Our Music

Added by Desert Pea Media

Description Desert Pea Media is very proud to announce our new collaboration with the Original Nations community in Townsville, QLD. The production was created over three days in an intensive collaborative storytelling experience. Elders, Indigenous community members, young people, and staff were invited to have conversations about issues facing the community.

Funded and coordinated by the The Townsville Aboriginal and Islander Health Service’s (TAIHS). The Lighthouse is an after-hours diversionary centre for young people at risk of engaging in criminal activities. 64 young people are currently accessing The Lighthouse for a safe place with access to meals, showers, beds and positive pro-social activities, seven nights a week.

Desert Pea Media projects involve a dialogue-based storytelling process that encourages participants to analyse 'the real', 'the ideal' and 'the bridge'. In simple terms this means critically thinking about how to create positive change for yourself, for each other and for our communities.

The DPM team feels deeply honoured to share, create and build connection with this incredible, resilient group of young people. These projects not only uplift and inspire audiences and community members, but everybody involved. These are friendships and experiences that are deeply valued and respected.

This project featured the musical direction and production of music producer Josh Nicholas (aka Hazy). We thank you brother for your artistic vision and awesome work.

Special thanks to Nikkola Savuro, Kath Anderson and ***** for your hard work in making this project possible. Also to Aunty Gail Mabo and Uncle Alfred Smallwood for your ongoing support.

LYRICS

You wanna be with me? You wanna be mine?
True love so good, you'd think IT’S a crime
It's a little early comin' with those lines
Let's wait, take it slow, take [SPACE] time

We don't wanna end up on Dr Phil
Boy, take a pill, plus take a chill
Kick back kussa, if you think you're gonna hit that
Matha sit back, relax and rethink that

I'm a boss gummah, yeah you sabeh me
I take control, you don't control me
Those are my rules, I keep it OG
And that's the way I'm gonna stay homie

We gonna lead the way LOVE
We sick of all of the pain TRUST
I can see the change Uh-HUH
Feel it beat in my veins

If we could all see the same WHAT?
I believe that we could change Uh-HUH
We gonna lead the way YUH
We gonna lead the way

We wanna see some change Don’t wanna feel the pain
Make it a brighter day
Cause we’re gonna lead the way

Respect your lady never threaten her,
Respect yourself cause you are first,
Show affection with out the hurt,
Building connection for better not worst,

She’s my one an only she be my royalty,
You my priority I’ll treat you with loyalty,
I’m a young man tryna understand,
How I can treat you properly, Nothing is stopping me,

I’m speaking with honesty,
All of my brothers come follow me,
This is the way that it’s got to be, x2

We gonna lead the way LOVE
We sick of all of the pain TRUST
I can see the change Uh-HUH
Feel it beat in my veins

If we could all see the same WHAT?
I believe that we could change
We gonna lead the way YUH
We gonna lead the way

We wanna see some change Don’t wanna feel the pain
Make it a brighter day
Cause we’re gonna lead the way
