Album: Who Cares Any More
TherealfoundingfathersChiefJosephSittingBullGeronimoRedCloud
Take a trip with me to the big country
To find a culture of our nation once great
We lived together with nature and her resources
But where destroyed for civilisation sake...

Where are you now,
Geronimo and Sitting Bull
And other like you ?
They call savage fools
You are the true Americans,
The only hero's to me
Dose your spirit lie at peace
At Wounded Knee..

We welcome the strangers with open hands
They paid us back by steeling our land
Treaties were made and treaties were broke
We never heard a true word spoke

Where are you now,
Geronimo and Sitting Bull
and other like you..
They call savage fools
You are the true Americans,
the only hero's to me
Dose your spirit lie at peace
at Wounded Knee..

Our women and children lay dead in the dust
How could we show them any more trust
Prospectors laid clam to our silver and gold
Our tribal lands the authorities sold

Where are you now,
Geronimo and Sitting Bull
and other like you?
They call savage fools
You are the true Americans
The only hero's to me
Dose your spirit lie at peace
at Wounded Knee..

Forced from our homes on to reservation
Treated like animals without preservation
We had no option but to stand up and fight
For everything that was our right..

Where are you now,
Geronimo and Sitting Bull
and other like you..
They call savage fools
You are the true Americans,
the only hero's to me
Dose your spirit lie at peace
at Wounded Knee..


Deep in my soul I hear cries of pain
And late in the night I shed tears again
So when I die set my spirit free
And bury my heart at Wounded Knee.

Where are you now,
Geronimo and Sitting Bull
and other like you?
They call savage fools
You are the true Americans,
The only hero's to me
Dose your spirit lie at peace
at Wounded Knee..

Dose your spirit lie at peace,
Dose your spirit lie at peace,
Dose your spirit lie at peace
at Wounded Knee.
