Idle No More

      Idle No More ~ Listen

Lyrics: Idle No More

On the Ottawa River – the Sun it abates – Christmas is passing and everyone waits:   Will nations meet face to face?
The island is quiet – guests they are few – Parliament’s buildings are just within view –  the whole world is waiting for you

Prayers for the land – prayers from the cold – fighting back hunger in body and soul    I will idle no more!

We killed them with hunger in history past – hunted their buffalo down to the last
took away children and beat them with love – we taught them to worship our god up above and his son who was king – without rights to his land oh…

On the Ottawa River – the Sun it abates – Christmas is passing and everyone waits:  Will nations meet face to face?
She will not cower – nor will she cry – land for her Nation is reason to die.
I will stand against genocide!

So beat the drums loud and beat the drums fast – march for the treaties and call up the dance,  Sing your lament, sing it long make it last – sing for the Chief in her hard cold fast, ’cause of self-righteous men with their laws and demands oh…

on the Ottawa River – the Sun it abates – Christmas is passing and everyone waits:  Will nations meet face to face?

Prayers for the children – prayers from the cold – fighting back hunger in body and soul.  I will idle no more!

Death can be sudden or death can be slow – with beads of coercion or blood in the snow with policy papers for death to a Nation in one final blow

We will idle no more… idle no more!

Thanks for listening. If you want an mp3, please leave me a message in the comment form, and I’ll send it out. #idlenomore
