In our hand
An old old old thread
Trail of Blood
And amens
Greed is the gift
For the sons
Of the songs
Hear this prayer
Of the wampum
This is the tie
That will bind us

    General Comment"The Southwest has this effect on her [Scarlet] where she looks deeper into things. And she's able to hear the ancestors more clearly. And she's been to a place where a long time ago there was a massacre that happened to the Apache, to most of the women and children. And there's a voice that she begins to hear of an old woman that's sitting by a fire. She's hearing in her dream time, and she's hearing it more and more with every day. And she starts to follow this trail, this voice, this story that she's picking up historically. So on some level, I guess, the aboriginal idea of song-lines has begun to sort of, mm, wrap itself around. That another culture is sort of supporting this concept that a song is, mmm, is determining where she goes. But if you don't know the song, you can't get into the next landspace. That's how song-lines work."
