Indian heart

Indian heart

Native soul

Ancient primordial

And centuries old

Their land taken

It was stolen

Land of the bison

Land of the eagle

Heart beats wild

Their soul is free

But forced to live in misery

Proud people

Of a proud nation

No longer living

On reservations

Indian hearts

I shed tears for you

Indian soul

I mourn the truth

Life stolen

Along with their land

Ownership forfeit

By their fellow man

Land stolen by White Europeans

In the name of conquest and greed

Called and treated like savages

The only savage is the men of the pilgrimage

By men of European privilege

Indian hearts

I feel sorrowful

Indian soul

Can never be consoled.
