Oh great mystery, a dead whale that breathed, a word that was changed, a dance that was danced hand in hand at the end. Oh great mystery, of so many notes and so many tongues and only one song, at the end.

One time have you thought of the word genocide; new world is not too new on the other side
History in part is not an education, it must include the words of a native son
The time is now to read on Ward Churchill, the time is now to read up Vine Deloria

Everyone can see the rainbow when it comes
Perfect mix of water, darkness and sunlight
as the salmon struggle hard against the current
everyone cannot have their way of life.
Do you really know the place that you call home
Do you base your wealth upon the things you own
If the power grid suddenly fell apart
could you walk a new road with an open heart?


No you don't take away
No you can't take away

In the prophecies of Sydney Has no Horse
nature will rise up again in violent course
Will the water wash away the lust of gold
will it really come to pass as he has told?

No you don't take away

First you take away last to learn what it's used for brother teacher
what you have today you will find useless in the future, brother
If you lost your world would you find out what to live for now teacher
First to give away best one to know what it's used for now teacher.
