Nightwish – Creek Mary's Blood lyrics

Soon I will be here no more
You'll hear my tale
Through my blood
Through my people
And the eagle's cry
The bear within will never lay to rest

Wandering on Horizon Road
Following the trail of tears

White man came
Saw the blessed land
We cared, you took
You fought, we lost
Not the war but an unfair fight
Sceneries painted beautiful in blood

Wandering on Horizon Road
Following the trail of tears
Once we were here
Where we have lived since the world began
Since time itself gave us this land

Our souls will join again the wild
Our home in peace and war and death

Wandering on Horizon Road
Following the trail of tears
Once we were here
Where we have lived since the world began
Since time itself gave us this land

Wandering on Horizon Road
Following the trail of tears
Once we were here
Where we have lived since the world began
Since time itself gave us this land

Hanhepi iyuha mi ihanbla hinni yelo
Тn sunkmanitutankapi hena,
Sunkawakanpi watogha hena,
Oblaye t' ankapi oihankesni hena
T' at' epi kin asni kiyasni he akatanhanpi iwankal
Oblaye t' anka kin
Osicesni mitakuyepi тn
Makoce kin wakan
Wakantanka kin тn
Miwicala ohinni - Hanhepi iyuha kici - Anpetu iyuha kici yelo
Mi yececa hehaka kin yelo, na ni yececa sunkmanitutankapi
Kin ka mikaga wowasaka isom
Uncinpi tuweni mitaku keyas ta k' you
Unwakupi e' cela e wiconi wanji unmakainapi ta yelo
Anpetu waste e wan olowan le talowan winyan ta yelo
Unwanagi pi lel e nita it' okab o ta ye
Untapi it' okab o' ta
Na e kte ena тn hanska ohakap
Ni itansni a' you nita ni ihanke yelo

("I still dream every night
Of them wolves, them mustangs,
Those endless prairies
The restless winds over mountaintops
The unspoilt frontier of my kith n'kin
The hallowd land of the
Great Spirit
I still believe
In every night
In every day
I am like the caribou
And you like the wolves that
Make me stronger

We never owed you anything
Our only debt is one life
For our Mother

It was a good day to chant this song
For Her
Our spirit was here long before you
Long before us
And long will it be after you
Pride brings you to your end")

    It means exactly what the others are saying above, when the cherokee's were pushed out of their land because of the indian removal act. They were traveling west of the appalachian mountains along the "trail of tears" where a lot of women and children had died. The song is also telling us about how they felt so connected to their land and it will always be apart of them. The white settlers came in, the indian's welcomed them and took care of them but the settlers had been greedy and stole what was rightfully their's on their quest to turn indians to christianity.
