Track Name: Directional Warriors
My thoughts flow like the sacred river
I will stand in the cold to protect and defend (the river)
Drink the water, thank the mother
Flowing life, salmon swimming red in our veins
Dreams are real as the sea and the sky and the salmon

I will sit in the warmth and heal
I will sit in the cold and heal

Leaves are falling
Mountains are calling
Mother bear, brother bear
Calling all voices, calling all songs
Flowing like the mighty river
Carries the voices

I will sit in the warmth and heal
I will sit in the cold and heal
Track Name: The Rebels Are Coming
The rebels are coming
It'll all be over soon
The collapse will take it down
And the wild be born a new
We will all be survivors
The oppression will fade away
We have now won the future
Our strength and love remains
The rebels have come and
The beginning is now
They taught us how to listen
What was lost is now found
Track Name: Skin of Stone
Heart of lava
Skin of stone
Abundant spirit
Tied down to thrones
Mother to all
Even to parasites
Carried by day
Cradled by night

All of the time
To think or to feel
To live or to die
And to pull your dreams near
All of the time
Together or alone
To gather or let go
To learn or to know

All of the time
To think or feel
To live or die
Pull your dreams near
Track Name: Unkind
Oh you treat her so unkind
Greed, Money, Power, Hungry
Exploitation by humankind
Makes you lose your mind
Oh you treat her so unkind

And I see it

Her spark is not fuelled by gas
She's such a kind hearted woman
Oh you treat her so unkind
It's that you treat her unkind

Why don't you connect with her
In a consensual way?
Track Name: You Must Realize
This is the worst thing
You could possibly imagine
You must realize
Our mother is dying
You talk over her cries

You must realize
You talk over her cries
