Spirit Bird - lyrics

playlist Playlist
We give it time and we wonder why,
do what we can, laugh and we cry
and we sleep in your dust because we've seen this all before.
Culture fades with tears and grace,
leaving us stunned, hollow with shame.
We have seen this all, seen this all before.
(2x)
Many tribes of a modern kind
doing brand new work, same spirit by side,
joining hearts and hands and ancestral twine, ancestral twine.
And slowly it fades! And slowly we fade!
And slowly you fade! And slowly you fade!
Hey mana yo yo yo yo...
(2x)
Spirit bird she creaks and groans
she knows she has seen this all before
she has seen this all before, she has.
And slowly you fades! And slowly it fades!
And slowly we fade! And slowly you fade! And slowly you fade!
Hey mana yo yo yo yo...
Soldier on, soldier on, my good country man!
Keep fighting for your culture, now!
Keep fighting for your land!
And I know its been thousands of years
and I feel your hurt and I know its wrong
and you feel you've been chained and broken and burned.
And those beautiful old people, those wise old souls,
have been ground down for far too long
by that spineless man, that greedy man, that heartless man, deceiving man.
That government hand taking blood and land, taking blood and land and still they can.
But your dreaming and your warrior spirit lives on.
And it is so, so, so strong in the earth, in the trees, in the rocks, in the water, in your blood and in the air we breath.
Soldier on, soldier on, my good country man!
Keep fighting for your children, now!
Keep fighting for your land!
Slowly it fades! Slowly it fades!
Slowly it fades! Slowly it fades!
Hey mana yo yo yo yo...
We give it time and we wonder why,
do what we can, laugh and we cry
and we sleep in your dust because we've seen this all before.
