My bones are hurting
Quivering from
The lack of words
The pain has settled
No way to tell
That a yesterday
Has been lost
Just slipped away

I dream
Of a tale
That could recount
Without a fault
A whole life lived
But you don’t look here
You don’t see me

You don’t hear me
You don’t listen
You don’t speak to me
You don’t know me
I’m a prisoner in my own land
I’m a sleeping hurricane
Don’t you wait ’til I get angry
Don’t wait ’til I break my chains
You don’t know me
You don’t know me
You don’t know who I am

You’re here as a conqueror of my earth
You’ve imprisoned me
In my lands
Deprived me
Of my territory
Deprived me
Of my identity

You’ve chained me on reserves you’ve created
You want to be the master
Of my soul
You don’t know my legends
No you don’t know my history


You call me Blackfoot and Blood
You call me Slavey, you call me Alabama
You call me Mohawk

You call me Nez Perce and Crow
You call me Flathead
You call me Greenlandic
You call me but you don’t know me
