STOLEN LAND

FROM ANCIENT TIMES
TIMES EVER OLDEN
WE ROAMED THIS LAND
TIL THE DUPPY CONQUEROR CAME
TOOK AWAY OUR RIGHTS TO THE GRASS
BY FEAT OF ARMS


SAID WE HAD NO RIGHTS
TOOK DOWN OUR TEMPLES
BURNED DOWN OUR TEE’PEES
CONVERT TO HIS WAYS
HE THREATENED
OR YOU MUST DIE!


HE CAME TO VICTIMIZE OURS
LEAST OF ALL, TO CRIMINALIZE US
YOUR HUNTER OF BUFFALOE DAYS ARE DONE
YOUR DEER HUNTING DANCE
YOUR BALLADS, YOUR BEAT, YOUR SACRED PIPE
YOUR ALL, YOU MUST GIVE UP
IN ORDER TO SURVIVE IN THE LAND
THE TRICKSTER SAID
AS THEY SET UPON THE LAND GRAB


OUR BRONZE SKIN WOMEN THEY TOOK
MANY BY FORCE
SOME THEY MESMERIZED AND SEDUCED
OUR YOUNG WARRIORS LANCES
COULD NOT STOP THEIR BUTCHERY AND HATE
OUR YOUNG BLOOD MINDS REPROGRAMMED
TO THINK NONE OTHERWISE
IT IS NO LONGER YOUR LAND NOR YOUR LIFE
FOR IT IS THEIRS TO SODOMIZE
DISPOSE OF, ENSLAVE AND KICK AROUND



PRODUCE AND CONSUME
IS THE NATURE OF THE BEAST
ONCE A DEVIL, NOW TWICE THE DEMON
BUILDERS OF BORDERS AND BARBED WIRE FENCES
FOR US NOT TO CROSS
KILLED THE ANCIENT SOCIALIZING
WHEN THEY SET UPON DIVIDING
THIS OUR LAND


THE STOLEN LAND
