Album: Stained Class (1978)
  • This song was written by guitarist K.K. Downing and singer Rob Halford. It is written from an Indian's perspective, and tells about the pain and misery the Europeans brought upon the native Americans. The song suggests that the modern man is really the most primitive one, considering the methods they used and the things they committed for their own sake. >>
