[Verse 1]
This broken arrow
Needs heeding
When great white fathers
Your mistress is inequality

[Chorus]
Rash and reckless won't get us to
Where we want to be
Are we emancipators or oppressors
Of lady liberty?

[Post-Chorus]
Have we lost her?
Have we lost her?
Have we lost her?

[Verse 2]
This broken arrow
Needs heeding
When great white fathers
Our poisoned rivers feed your greed

[Chorus]
Rash and reckless won't get us to
Where we want to be
Ancient songlines are singing
To wake lady liberty

[Bridge]
She may seem weak
We may be battle-weary
Still those songlines sing
From our Great Lakes
To our sacred Badlands
Over sweet prairies
No, I'm not letting go
I won't be silenced or frozen out
By those who must account
In our Senate and in the House

[Alt Chorus]
We the people
Dear judges will be watching
Over you
Over you

[Post-Chorus]
Have we lost her?
Have we lost her?
Have we lost her?

[Outro]
This broken arrow
Needs heeding
