At Standing Rock

What once was painted on the body
now offered in prayers
the power of spirit,
make no mistake, this is war

Greed comes riding bareback with dogs

Now offered in prayers
to preserve the mother
make no mistake, this is war
return to the old shelters

to preserve the mother
guard the water in her breast
return to the old shelters
trust the arms of the mother

Greed comes to spray its poison

Guard the water in her breast
so the children will know
trust in the arms of the mother
to protect the burning eyes

So the children will know
the power of spirit
trust in the arms of the mother
what was once painted on the body.
