  • A black snake beneath the ground
    Extinction dripping from his mouth
    Poisons water, hearts of men
    Who choke the sky and rape the land
    A legacy of endless greed
    And manifested destiny
    Draws a map of stolen names
    The truth is known but nothing's changed

    But on the bitter winds, we fly
    (I come to you, I come to you)
    To where the seven fires burn, we ride
    (To stand with you, to stand with you)

    One hundred years and more have passed
    Since blood was spilled that greased the grass
    Across the river hired guns
    Are standing on a hill of bones
    They built a deadly liquid road
    A deed to that which can't be owned
    Beneath the eyes of iron hawks
    I stand with those who won't be bought

    Yes on the bitter winds, we fly
    (I come to you, I come to you)
    To where the seven fires burn, we ride
    (To stand with you, to stand with you) (we ride)

    A black snake beneath the ground
    Extinction dripping from his mouth
    Poisons water, hearts of men
    Who choke the sky and rape the land

    I stand with you

    To the sky, voices singing
    On and on, never ending
    In the night, drums are beating
    On and on, never ending Writer/s: David Randall Blythe, John Campbell, Mark Morton, Will Adler
