    Default Staccato

    Staccato

    An angry staccato echoes in my mind
    Ancient drums of stretched hide
    Sounding against injustice and calling to the Braves:
    Take up your weapons! Trample the insects that infest our Mother;
    Covering her skin with blood, the blood of our brothers
    Taking scalps and hides while leaving flesh to rot
    Leaving bones to bleach in the apathetic sun

    A mournful staccato echoes in my mind
    Ancient drums of stretched hide.
    Sounding against the rape of our Mother and calling to the Shaman:
    Take up your medicines! Heal the corporate disease that sickens our Mother;
    Replacing the forest with feilds of grain
    Filling the meadows with forests of steel
    The scent of growth is covered by the stench of butchery

    A despondent staccato echoes in my mind
    Ancient drums of stretched hide
    Sounding against intolerance and calling to my Brothers and Sisters:
    Take up your wisdom!
    Bring light to the despair decaying the minds of our youth
    The power of our medicine is weakening
    The quality of our lives is decreasing
    Our oneness with the land is all but gone

    An auspicious staccato echoes in my mind
    Ancient drums of stretched hide.
    Sounding against hoplessness
    But this beat is too weak
    I fear it is too late
    We cannot turn back the white tide
    We must now try to live in peace
    We must now try to die with dignity
