"Ghost Dance" as written by and Ivan Kral Patti Smith....
We shall live again, we shall live
What is it children, that falls from the sky? (again)
Tayi, taya, tayi, aye ya
Manna from Heaven, from most high
Food from the Father, tayi, taya

We shall live again, we shall live again (we shall live again)
Check out the greed (we shall live)
Peace to your brother, give and take heed
Tayi, taya, it left two feet
One foot extended, snake to the ground
Wave of the Earth, one turn around

We shall live again, we shall live again (we shall live again)
Shake out the grief, babe (we shall live)
Stretch out your arms now dip and sway
Fruit of thy bird, tayi, taya
Threw off your shoe, haul off the sow
Dust off the words that shake from the tale

We shall live again, we shall live again (we shall live again)
Check out the ghost dance (we shall live)
Here we are, Father, here, Holy Ghost
Bread of your bread, host of your host
We are the tears that fall from your eyes
Word of your word, cry of your cry

We shall live again, we shall live again (we shall live again)
(We shall live again)
What is it, Father, in your eye? (we shall live again)
What is this grave sign, eyes to cry (we shall live again)
Blood of my baby, well, just what I need (we shall live again)
What is it, hide me, way off the speed (we shall live again)

Oh, is it, Father, holy that night? (we shall live again)
What is it, Father, that moves to the right? (we shall live again)
What is it, Father, isn't it pain? (we shall live again)
What is it, Father, that shakes from your main? (we shall live again)

What is it, Father, supposed to be brave? (we shall live again)
A lot of questions, the right to live (we shall live again)
What is it, baby, I can do? (we shall live again)
Your mama loves you, I'm dying, too (we shall live again)

I won't forget you, never lie (we shall live again)
Always love you till I die (we shall live again)
