Are happening
This weekend
At the civic centre
A family day of fun
On Sunday
there’s a concert
At Conjola
The community
Out and about
Just six weeks
After the disaster
To that sense of fun
Raises a glass
While the rest of the gods
On Olympus
Wonder how it can be
We’ve thrown the worst
We had to bring them down
Fire and flood
One upon the other
But still they resist
They are rising up
On the wings
Of the Phoenix
To celebrate life
Proving that
They have the power
No gods or governments
Can control the will
Of the people
We run our lives
Not them
So celebrate my friends
You are the ones
That will resurrect
And rebuild
Our community
Out of the ashes
Your spirit is strong!
