Lyrics

Eagles Fly

Written By: Music & Lyrics by J.Green / M. Bruyere

Chant’s 2X

Over the prairies I can feel, All my Ancestors looking down on me
They all know me buy my real name, Munido benaise is who I am

Eagle fly’s Up so high
Why can’t I Like they fly
When they fly In the sky
Spirit’s high Like eagle’s fly

Chant’s 2X

Over the prairies I still feel, All my Ancestors looking down on me
Thier all up there, thier not far, Munido benaise that’s were they are


Eagle fly’s Up so high
Why can’t I Like they fly
When they fly In the sky
Spirit’s high Like eagle’s fly

Chant’s 2X

So Blind

Written By: Music & Lyrics by J.Green

Mind So Blind, Can’t Even See That I’m,
Walking On What Used To Be All Mine,
Make An Effort To See This Through,
Why Was I So Blind,

Wonder Into Deep Space, A Void,
Watching Everything That Comes To Mind,
Gain The Strength To See This Through,
I Will Free All Minds,

Mind So Blind, Can’t Even See That I’m,
Walking On What Used To Be All Mine,
Make An Effort To See This Through,
Why Was I So Blind,

Still Around

Written By: Music & Lyrics by J.Green / M. Bruyere

Were taking back all things you used to say,
Don’t believe in the american way,
Arrogance, can’t see whats in front of me,
Brainwashing was their holy way,

Sing to the drum, create our songs,
Dance to the beat, now sing our songs,
Sing to the drum, create our songs,
Dance to the beat, now sing our songs,

Were Still Alive, Were Still Around, Wah Wah
We Sing & Dance on Pow Wow Grounds,
Were Still Alive, Were Still Around, Wah Wah
We Dance upon the Pow Wow Grounds,

Take your Entitlement and all the Crown,
Why Not, Because Were...Brown...
I can see through your Jealous Haze,
Have you forgot all your Indian Ways,

Sing to the drum, create our songs,
Dance to the beat, now sing our songs,
Sing to the drum, create our songs,
Dance to the beat, now sing our songs,

Were Still Alive, Were Still Around, Wah Wah
We Sing and Dance on Pow Wow Grounds,
Were Still Alive, Were Still Around, Wah Wah
We Dance upon the Pow Wow Grounds.

Were Still Alive, Were Still Around,
Were Still Alive, Were Still Around,
Were Still Alive, Were Still Around,
Were Still Alive, Were Still Around,

Were Still Alive, Were Still Around,
Sing to the drum, create our songs,
We Sing and Dance on Pow Wow Grounds,
Dance to the beat, now sing our song,
Were Still Alive, Were Still Around,
Sing to the drum, create our songs,
Dance to the beat, now sing our song...

Indian Song

Written By: Music and Lyrics by Jesse Green

In 1492,

Western civilization came,

Brought technology, addiction,

Christianity,

Brought disease, brought death,

Genocide on an entire race,

Assimilation was the goal,

The power hungry have not ceased.

Pow Wow

Written By: Music and Lyrics by Jesse Green

Goin to the powwow,
Stare at all the pretty women,
Goin to the pow wow, Yah,
Dance and sing all night,

Goin to the pow wow,
Gonna go an 49,
Goin to the powwow,
live and celebrate life.
