Day indigenous

They cast down your ideals, like pearls before swine  
stand now your ground, hold the brave line  
indifference seed is a noose without a rope  
leave the truly native without chance of hope  

Corrupt cavalry; shackle with bullets and teargas spray  
intimidation, belittlement, isolated, betrayed  
congress and senate speaking with forked tongue  
pretenders holding a foreground, just one man alone  

Poison the water rape all the land  
authorities promises written in sand  
let the steel of your ancestors sprit so brave  
reach out and resolve, not to be swayed  
 
like rock build a shell, impervious and hard  
gather all your resourced, and give not a shard  
rebuke and defend; your will shall prevail  
the giant brought down like a tree in a gale  
 
So give us our day; A token of trust  
to muster our spirits and not be rebuffed  
reclaim the past and hold our heads high  
 a chief from dawn until sunset and not be denied  
 
For this, our birthright, and so we must band  
all hearts with a reverence, a day to command  
and all to remember America's past  
for our wheel of fortune, from them it was cast  
 
Just 24 hours to placate, the soul's unrest  
the feathered crown, of all tribes headdress  
now stoke our hopes, with wind and with fire  
and seek the scalp, identity, our earths empire
