Battle crying but they can’t hear a thing
Screaming till my lungs collapse while
you see my ears bleed.
Cannot will not listen to the fiends
wanna find a nice serene field
to stop all the obscenity but the
concrete jungle towers over me
thought i was done being mean
wanted nothing but to be clean
i felt like i couldn’t get the smell off me
so much negativity so no way to be free
couldn’t see the light of me cause i was drowning
in a sea of stupidity,
kept swimming to the top just to get a peek cause the waters down below are murky from the grease of the pipelines preach.
wanted to swim up creek and down the stream
to our ancestors who are living peacefully
i could see them now, but it is not my time
they feel the need to keep me here to be seen
as a fine that someone has to buy.
NO! i will not cry. not this time…
as i tell myself another lie…
each time i hold that sage to my face
another tear quakes my rage. need to let it out,
but what is it about?
thinkin’ i don’t need this doubt
I DON’T NEED TO SHOUT !
I need to light that smudge and bang my drum.
maybe then i will be won, maybe then i will be able
and i will have sung the song to his gun.
they tell myself again, not yet! keep going and the path will be set
Ceremony is Coming back so get the land
Before they come back with their weapons and dissect us from within.
extinction is not our friend, we will not give in.
WE ARE RESILIENT
