It all starts to make sense
It all starts to make sense

With all these omens, we've been callin' it in
It all starts to make sense

All my thoughts and particularly my prayers
Have not forgotten the indigenous
For the western man's been workin' so hard against us
With his western medicine
And his land management and his fences
Or the way he protects and the way he preserves
Never the way he neglects the people who came first
Ya know, the same ones that he massacred
It all starts to make sense
Where we're goin', where we're at and where we've been
It all starts to make sense

Well, creator, the behaviour
Of the collective youth definitely seems to be in favour
Of the western man's invasion
See him pumpin' fear like an IV
Spreadin' it like a disease
And all the while buildin' a clueless army
Of god-fearing youth with no knowledge of the truth
And their selfishness is so ugly
And it all starts to make sense
Who we gotta talk to if we wanna survive this mess
It all starts to make sense

Itty-bitty economies based on geography
Fueled by spectators and their money
And their need for things that will not last
So go on, build a hotel, a gift shop in the wilderness

Makin' a profit, capitalizin' on it
And all the while tramplin' on everything that is sacred
And it all starts to make sense
Why western man destroys things he doesn't understand
It all starts to make sense
All these patterns and wasteful destructive practices

Livin like a third world country inside this country
Forgive the government that puts the people in poverty
And it bothers me when the people are goin' hungry
and corporate companies have got their cupboards full of groceries
It's disgusting how you can do nothing
And complain about the situation in which you're living
And it all starts to make sense
They're vultures of culture and they're pickin' on all my friends
It all starts to make sense
Oh, indigenous imprisonment

Well I dedicate my life to the people who need the light
help them rise above the scam on the land and their lives
And I'm cuttin' like a knife
All the lies by the slice
Independent of this democracy is really worth the bite
My request in reasonable, a tribe undefeatable
Ambition to keep movin' toward solutions that are feasible
It's unbelievable, all the slow movin' people
And they could care less, just as long as they are comfortable
It's unforgivable, because the conditions now are critical
And whether or not you're ready we are now approachin' a pinnacle
It's difficult to say exactly what to do
But the change begins with me and I reflect it back to you
And you and you and you
Come on, man, make the movement move
It all starts to make sense
It all starts to make sense

With all these omens and the moon phase we're in
It all starts to make sense

Well I dedicate my life to the people who need the light
help them rise above the scam on the land and their lives
And I'm cuttin' like a knife
All the lies by the slice
Independent of this democracy is really worth the bite
My request in reasonable, a tribe undefeatable
Ambition to keep movin' toward solutions that are feasible
It's unbelievable, all the slow movin' people
And they could care less, just as long as they are comfortable
It's unforgivable, because the conditions now are critical
And whether or not you're ready we are now approachin' a pinnacle
It's difficult to say exactly what to do
But the change begins with me and I reflect it back to you
And you and you and you,
Come on man

It all starts to make sense
It all starts to make sense
It all starts to make sense
It all starts to make sense
