Chapter 1 Our story begins at Lake Tarawera Where a war canoe glides in the mist of the morn The winters sun couldn't hide us from all of our terror The Matakite confirmed what we'd seen with our eyes Verse 2 This war canoe of Tangata Whenua. (People of the land) It carries the dead to the mountain that see with no eyes Haka Ka mate Ka mate Ka ora Ka ora Tenei Te Tangata Puhuruhuru Nana Nei Tiki Mai Whakawhiti Te ra A Upane Ka Upane Whiti Te Ra Chapter 2 And now that the village is burning The mountain unleashes its vengeance on Te Wairoa Tamaohoi is yearning to bloody well eat you You buried him deep in the mountain's own fiery hole You thought he would sleep for eternity never to greet you Tuhoto Paid out his curse on Te Wairoa
