Lyrics

The Indian

Written By: Shawn Michael Perry

I'm alive
Just barely back from Eden
7 Generations deep
And though we tried
You beat the Hell right through me
7 Generations deep
I am alive, not blind
Yu think you see me weak
We are not a nation in defeat
Heads held high
Cuz we are the Indian
Trial by fire
You beat the hell right through me
7 Generations deep
And I'm on fire
Will you go down in the flames now
CIA; BIA; MIA; Aaaaye --
And though we tried to see it in a new way
That's the price that we all have to pay
To be an Indian
I am not blind
I'm alive
Just barely back from Eden
Live or die
I'm alive, I am alive
Think you see me weak
We are not a nation in defeat
Heads held high
We are not a nation in defeat
Cuz we are the Indian
We are the Indian
We are the Indian
We are the Indian

Freedom

Written By: Shawn Michael Perry

Wind in my hair
Life is in my song
Who could have known
Joy would be shattered
A lesson in time
Taught by your world
I've saving my heart for something better
Cause we need....

(Chorus)
Freedom
Struggle to survive
Freedom
I want to stay alive
Freedom
The lights are fading fast
Freedom
How long will it last?

We believe the time has come
Shame on the day
It brings the night
Still sad, but slowly getting better
Wanting you now
Just to be my friend
Can't you see the fight's not over?

(Chorus out)

If I

Written By: Shawn Michael Perry

Here we go again
Just short of reason
There we go my friend blind to what we seek
Then we'll work it out
No rhyme or reasons
that's what makes a fool
Right out of you and me
I've given up, left out in the cold
Your love is gone, and now I'm all alone

(Chorus)
Cuz if I choose to dance
Would you lead or follow
And if I choose to run
Well could you set me free
And if I kneeled and prayed?
Another day gone by
Does it really matter?

And what you'd say to me,
"Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned"
And what if I say to you "I guess I might be leaving"
What you'd say to me,
"You're not welcome here anymore"
I've give up, left out in the cold
Your love is gone, and now I'm all alone

(Repeat Chorus)

Can I run my way back to you, baby?
If I kneeled and prayed...

forever
