RED JACKET

oh Red Jacket, you were right / stars are in the ground, there is dirt in the sky
oh Red Jacket, you were right / we call in a vision, we are your children
we have trusted like children, like we’re meant to be / to keep love alive through suffering


what now, what now? we demand the new song / that’s been coming on, that is coming on
what now, what now? rebuild the fire of the old ways / come together in a beautiful way
if you’re crying for a vision, look to the ones who tell us how / do it now


oh Red Jacket, you were right / there’s waste in precious grounds and dirt in the sky
we all have a little more time / we can choose the new vision, believe in the sacred fires.


I call to you, respect those ancient lives / your duties are made up by ones that cry
I call to you, see through modern lies / take a path of love in front of your children’s eyes


one woman cannot do the work of ten, much less the work of ten thousand
one man cannot do the work of ten, much less the work of ten thousand
sisters listen to me, open your hearts to hear / pick up your part, your voice fearless and clear
brothers listen to me, open your hearts to hear / pick up your part, heal your heart of fear


instrumental break - 2 verses


one woman cannot do the work of ten, much less the work of ten thousand
one man cannot do the work of ten, much less the work of ten thousand
sisters listen to me, open your hearts to hear / pick up your part, your voice fearless and clear
brothers listen to me, open your hearts to hear / pick up your part, heal your heart of fear


oh Red Jacket, you were right / the precious grounds suffer, there is dirt in the sky
Now is the time, we call in the new vision / we hear the voices of our rainbow children
If you’re crying for a vision, look to the ones / who tell us how, do it now
