You sow her up so she can't feel
You shut her up so she can't heal
I see witches still burning
And the world keeps on turning

I don't know why
I don't know why I cling to this impossibility

Cowboys and Indians
could love eachother like sister and brother
when we keep on falling back out of place

Cowboys and Indians
Could love eachother like sister and brother
When it's ourselves we choose to face

So you rob them blind, you make them kneel
Then you tear their hands so they can't steal
I see bridges still burning
And the world keeps on turning

I don't know why
I don't know why I cling to this impossibility

Cowboys and Indians
Could love eachother like sister and brother
When we keep on trying to stake some new claim

Cowboys and Indians
Could love eachother like sister and brother
When it's ourselves we choose to erase

You try to pay her back, try to strike a deal
Then you cut her up so she's not real
I see witches still burning
And the world keeps on turning

I don't know why
I don't know why we cling to this impossibility

Cowboys and Indians
Could love eachother like sister and brother
When we keep on falling back out of place

Cowboys and Indians
Could love eachother like sister and brother
When thou shall not kill unless it's what we claim
