I am native american

Ho ka hey wah nah (steven and bruce)
Ho ka hey wah nah woh
Ho ka hey wah nah
Ho ka hey wah nah woh
Ho ka hey wah nah
Ho ka hey wah nah woh

(editors note: the above is war cry of the lakota(sioux) meaning
"let's go - now")

Life was forever when we were young (steven)
The land was protected for everyone (bruce)
Forever as long as the rivers run (both)
But now the water no longer comes (steven)

And now all that remains (both)
Is darkness a poisoned earth
And now before it's too late
We must provide our own new birth

Chorus:
I am native american
I am native american

The question of honor you must decide (bruce)
The soul of the nation has been denied (steven)
Our dreams have been stolen before our eyes (both)
How do you say there's no tomorrow to a child? (bruce)

>from us there is much to learn (both)
There is so much you've forgotten
You can't change me
Try and understand I am proud of who I am

Chorus:
I am native american
I am native american

We must try and remember what we're here for (steven)
You will suffer the darkness alone no more (bruce)
You will have the strength of all of us
Gathered here today (both)
That is something they can never take away (bruce)

Chorus:
I am native american
I am native american

Ho ka hey wah nah (steven and bruce)
Ho ka hey wah nah woh

Repeat 7 more times til fade
