Song Lyrics

Oh give me a home

Where the buffalo roam

And the death of a race is a game

Where seldom is heard

A peacable word

From the white trash

Who killed as they came

Though these words dig deep

They offer no relief

God save the queen

I am an indian chief

There is a secret I keep

It`s called the talking leaf

And you better believe

That he speaks his beliefs

Like a rock that bleeds

A sea of grief

My talking leaf speaks of

A wounded knee creek

American ghost dance...

A new man who is with old ways

He walks the streets of life

But he`s in chains

I`m alive he cried

I can feel the flame

Burning red inside

I am an indian brave

There is a memory

That lives in my blood

Of the brand you laid

On all you touched

But the burning flame

Turns to burning pain

Genuine genocide

And that`s truly insane

So like a wild hurricane

I will dance on the grave

Of my race that died

When it should have been saved

American ghost dance...
