About the song
Pipeline, police and soldier retaliation to peaceful presence put into historical and contemporary perspective.
Lyrics
A handful of people prayed by the river on ancestral ground
Protectors of the earth, air and water, in peace they gathered round

Spirit Resistance Radio, School and Market where you can go
Cook shack, showers, first aid tent, music and horses, resident
Dakota Access Security think they’re 7th Cavalry
Bull Connor and his deputies – Birmingham in 63.

Pipeline caterpillar blade is destroying prairie loam
Just like caterpillar blade is destroying Palestine home
This story’s generations’ old, Baaken oil, uranium , gold
In Standing Rock and Cannonball. They’ll keep taking till they take it all.

From Crazy Horse to Leonard Peltier, armored cars and riot gear
They won’t drive us away with fear…Wounded Knee whispers in my ear

Obama says his strategy, authority of TPP
Hillary has nothing to say; she wants that pipeline comin our way.
Jill Stein came and signed her name- won’t be part of the corporate shame.
Extinction’s coming with oil & gas, 7 generations on, say this pipeline, ain’t gonna pass.

At Standing Rock we stand our ground – soldiers, cops and dogs surround
Tear my skin and burn my face…We ain’t gonna leave this place

Treaties broken repeatedly, 1851 Ft Laramie
Dog attackers all go free, but arrest us for corn and willow trees
The constitution’s been replaced by shotguns, handcuffs, clubs & mace
A tank and chopper circling round – body slamming to the ground.

LRADS & MRAPS, concussion grenades, a US military invades
Shooting horses and tasers apparently are ok with Obama and HRC
From Crazy Horse to Leonard Peltier, armored cars and riot gear
They won’t drive us away with fear…Wounded Knee echoes in my ear.
Tear my skin and burn my face…We ain’t gonna leave this place
