    Lyrics:

    Pre Chorus
    My people come from the land (3x)
    On which you stand
    Still fighting the white man (2x)

    Verse 1
    The path of an arrow’s narrow/ my people living in peril
    With several flows I’m armed wrestling with white devils
    Disheveled but never settle/ these settlers ain’t on my level
    Give me bass give me treble/ I’m troubled but never tremble
    Rekindled the Seven Council Fires/ Keepers of the Flame
    Land of the Burnt Thigh/ It’s even in my name
    I’m a symbol Sicangu is how I rumble
    I may stumble but mi oyate akicita I’ll never crumble
    Survivors of genocide the trauma’s got me trapped
    I used to keep it inside until I decide to rap
    My ancestors ain’t die for me to lie in my raps
    Can’t take it sitting down/ instead i’m fighting back
    Fuck your system fuck your capitalism
    They took the land, made us sick and gave us alcoholism
    They took away your wisdom/ they took away your health
    We’re gonna get it back and we’re gonna honor our selves


    Pre Chorus
    My people come from the land (3x)
    On which you stand
    Still fighting the white man (2x)

    Chorus (Lakota)
    Mita Oyate Ki Makoce Etanhanpi (my people come from the land) (4x)

    Verse 2
    My tribe cannot survive as long as the settlers will thrive
    For centuries on this land this committed genocide
    They don’t feel the land/ they kill the land
    Tried to kill the Indian and save the man
    Settlers slaughter/ they poison water
    From Flint, MI to Standing Rock
    The land is hot/ the land is hurt
    I feel it too/ I’m from the earth
    My flesh and blood the color of the dirt
    I am blessed enough to love my mother first
    Talking Mother Earth/ Unci Maka
    Lakota Makoce Ah
    Wasagya/ give me strength
    Hair like the land and it grow at length
    wokiksuye / they cut our grandparents’ braids
    Took them to that boarding school where our grandparents stayed
    Cut them off from the ways that their grandparents prayed
    They’re trying to build a pipeline over my grandparents’ grave
    There ain’t no stopping this rez life from blinding us
    Ain’t no stopping these problems from finding us
    It’s like I run with nowhere to go
    My Nation is a Rosebud with nowhere to grow



    Pre Chorus
    My people come from the land (3x)
    On which you stand
    Still fighting the white man (2x)

    Chorus (Lakota)
    Mita Oyate Ki Makoce Etanhanpi (my people come from the land) (4x)
