We all see black and white
When it comes to someone else's fight
No one ever gets involved
Apathy can never solve

Forced out-brave and mighty
Stolen land-they can't fight it
Hold on-to pride and tradition
Even though they know how much
Their lives are really missin
We're dissin them...

On reservations
A hopeless situation
Respect is something that you earn
Our indian brothers' getting burned
Original american
Turned into second class citizen

(Chorus:)
Cry for the indians
Die for the indians
Cry for the indians
Cry, cry, cry for the indians
Love the land and fellow man
Peace is what we strive to have
Some folks have none of this
Hatred and prejudice

War Dance!!!
Territory, it's just the body of the nation
The people that inhabit it make it's configuration
Prejudice, something we all can do without
Cause a flag of many colors is
What this land is all about!!!!

(Solo)
Back to first verse

    They called the Indians savage for not having guns and bombs?!?!

    They'd been around on Earth for just as long. "NECESSITY IS THE MOTHER OF ALL INVENTION."

    If they didn't invent implements of destruction, it's because they relied on things like peyote and tobacco (they smoked a different, psychedelic species, cigarettes are NOT made from it) to seek the consequences of the actions their ideas were leading them to. Europeans simply didn't have the balls to experience the divine directly - getting struck down by a wiser, infinite being is INTIMIDATING. But natives relied on that. So if Europeans relied on a book written under the influence of drugs, and natives had manages to use the drugs directly and kept themselves from engendering destruction, who were the savages after all?
