"Broken Arrow" as written by and Tori Amos....
This broken arrow needs heeding
When great white fathers
Your mistress is inequality

Rash and reckless
Won't get us
To where we want to be
Are we emancipators or oppressors
Of lady liberty?

Have we lost her
Have we lost her
Have we lost her

This broken arrow needs heeding
When great white fathers
Our poisoned rivers feed your greed

Rash and reckless
Won't get us
To where we want to be
Ancient songlines are singing to wake
Lady liberty

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

We the people
Dear judges
Will be watching

Over you
Over you

Have we lost her
Have we lost her

This broken arrow needs heeding
