I wrote this song to bring awareness to the current situation surrounding the Standing Rock Reservation in North Dakota and the Dakota Access Pipeline. Please visit sacredstonecamp.org for more information.

All proceeds from this song will go to efforts to help winterize the camp, and donations can be made directly at this link:

Thank you!

lyrics

Can you hear the war cries?
Can you hear the voices calling?
Can you see the smoke over the hill?
and your treaties wear so thin


Here they come to take the land
This will not be our last stand
The ancestors all know your lies
They are here and hear our cries

We hold lightening in our hands
Our soul feeds the thunder skies
Though they push us, we won’t fall
Sacred water washes all .

Can you hear the war cries?
Can you hear the drums?
Can you see the horses on the hill?
Our fire lives within

Can you feel the spirits in the sky?
Can you feel the ghosts in the land?
We are driven, We stand tall
and the Creator will not bend
