lyrics

Sitting bull men underneath the skies of evil.
Gathered at the Pine Ridge waiting for their faith to come.
Years of frustration, cut through the thin line.
Tears of a nation lost to the claws of hate.

Girl at the Wounded Knee, ran for her mothers arms.
Died by the icy creek, out there at Wounded Knee.

Blue coat gunners didn't hesitate to fire.
Mowed them to the ground, fading disillusioned eyes.
Built up temptation, tension, desperation on faces.
Lost to the claws of hate.

Girl at the Wounded Knee, running from the raging guns.
Proud 7th Cavalry. Masters of misery.

Who did they think they were?
Mothers and children dead.
Damn them all the way.
Damn them all the way.

All lost in vain, those scars will still remain.
Scars will still remain. Scars will still reamain.
Up to this day.
