Come To Standing Rock!

Inspired by veterans at the site I wrote this song tonight. My gift. Feel free to add, subtract, change, whatever it takes to make this a great song.

 

We have blood and dirt on our hands

from all these son’s and daughter’s commands

we never really did very much for the land

but now it’s time to take a stand

Come to Standing Rock

this little bit of hope

is all we’ve got

the time left

is not a lot

so come To Standing Rock,

my friends,

Come to Standing Rock.

You wouldn’t let your children play

in a nuclear fallout empty bay

but it really wouldn’t matter what you’d say

the machines just want to end the day

Come to Standing Rock

this little bit of hope

is all we’ve got

the time left

is not a lot

so come To Standing Rock,

my friends,

Come to Standing Rock.

Why do we tolerate so much pain?

In a world gone mad, what’s insane?

More killings, more children slain

for the profit of someone who remains unnamed

Come to Standing Rock

this little bit of hope

is all we’ve got

the time left

is not a lot

so come To Standing Rock,

my friends,

Come to Standing Rock.

We have blood and dirt on our hands

from all these son’s and daughter’s commands

we never really did very much for the land

but now it’s time to take a stand

Come to Standing Rock

this little bit of hope

is all we’ve got

the time left

is not a lot

so come To Standing Rock,

my friends,

Come to Standing Rock.
