Lakota

from Further by Voyage In Coma

/

about

This song was written about the struggling population of the native Lakota tribe, as well as the oppression felt by all native tribes from the federal government, and society at large. Idle no more.

lyrics

She cries
by her daughters bed
Its the same scene... same... scene...

With their warrants
and their badges
and their gloved hands
in her carriage.

They call it
assimilation.

Look now
who's the savage.

A tribe of orphans.
The chief is on the white cross.
Rows and rows of cell blocks.
This is the wound that never heals.

Give them back.
( Our sons)
Give them back.
( daughters)
There's so few left!

With their warrants
and their badges
and their gloved hands
in her carriage.

Look now
who's the savage.
