"Trail of Broken Treaties" as written by and Steven Van Zandt....
A change is forever - mine came today
Is what's best in us worth trying to save?
I've raised my empty hand
Too many brothers and sisters
Gunned down by the government man

The land is my mother
She is worth dying for
I've walked the path of peace
But I ain't running no more

Ain't no love here
Love's been sacrificed
Promises buried beneath
The trail of broken treaties

They come with numb senses
They come with hearts of stone
No knowledge no honor
Digging up my grandfather's bones

They come to buy and steal
But they don't understand
We're only here to watch over
No one can own the land

They got their gold and their silver
Money won't be enough
When they try to explain to their children
Why they've poisoned their blood

Ain't no love here
Love's been sacrificed
Promises buried beneath
The trail of broken treaties

I am lightning
Rainbow
Earth and night
The sky is crying

The night is falling
God shed his tears
I can see him so clearly
I've been here ten thousand years

As long as the four winds blow
Our spirits remain
The four winds will never
Blow away America's shame
