There's a thousand voices in my head
Long ago
Come inside, see yourself tonight
Let me in, floating on the wind
Oh, I don't know
The sound your hear
Are silent in the night

God I'm dying on a trail of tears
Where tomorrow never knows
A resurrection closer to a
Light I've never known
Play the game existence to the
Living end I go
Take me down to the trail of tears
Where tomorrow never knows

The lost road of destiny
I ride away home
Head to lay on velvet nails tonight
And will I lay
Me down to close my eyes
Oh, I don't know
Spirit wind with broken wings to fly

God I'm dying on a trail of tears
Where tomorrow never knows
A resurrection closer to a
Light I've never known
Play the game existence to the
Living end I go
Take me down to the trail of tears
Where tomorrow never knows

My feet are raw from the
Trail where I've been
Oh God these tears are evermore
My heart is gone
Oh to never come back again
I'll walk the stars
On my way home

Oh I'm on a trail of tears
Where tomorrow never knows
Oh I'm closer to a light
I've never known
Play the game of existence to the
Living end I go
Down to the trail of tears where
Tomorrow never never knows
Let my people go

    The american army forced the indians on the trail of tears march so they could steal their lands, many died on this harsh 10 month walk with very little food, water and no medical aid.
