KEEPERS OF WATER (SONG FOR STANDING ROCKING)

 

KEEPERS OF THE WATER - KEEPERS OF THE LAND

FOR OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS – FOR OUR FELLOW MAN

AS IN THE BEGINNING – HERE IS WHERE WE STAND

FIRE ON THE WATER – FIRE ON THE LAND

FIRE ON THE WATER – FIRE ON THE LAND

 

WOULD YOU STAND BEFORE THE SNAKE

WATER AT YOUR KNEE

WOULD YOU STAND AND NEVER BREAK

WOULD YOU STAND WITH ME

 

WHO INVADES THIS SACRED GROUND

FIRE ON THE WIND

SILVER SPADES CUT TURTLE MOUND

BULLETS CUT MY SKIN

 

KEEPERS OF THE WATER - KEEPERS OF THE LAND

FOR OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS – FOR OUR FELLOW MAN

AS IN THE BEGINNING – HERE IS WHERE WE STAND

FIRE ON THE WATER – FIRE ON THE LAND

FIRE ON THE WATER – FIRE ON THE LAND

 

THROUGH OUR VEINS THESE RIVERS RUN

WATER BRINGS US LIFE

THROUGH THE RAINS THESE STRANGERS COME

WATER CANNONS FIRE

 

SPIRITS RISE TO HOLD THE LINE

PRAYER DRUMS HOLD THE BEAT

A TRAIL OF TEARS IN MODERN TIMES

HISTORY REPEATS

 

KEEPERS OF THE WATER - KEEPERS OF THE LAND

FOR OUR SONS AND DAUGHTERS – FOR OUR FELLOW MAN

AS IN THE BEGINNING – HERE IS WHERE WE STAND

FIRE ON THE WATER – FIRE ON THE LAND

FIRE ON THE WATER – FIRE ON THE LAND

 

PILLARS MADE OF FLESH AND BONE STAND BEFORE THE GREED

I AM SCARED BUT I AM STONE – AND I WILL NEVER LEAVE

TOGETHER WITH MY BROTHERS AND MY SISTERS AND MY HEART

THE MEASURE OF OUR MOTHERLAND – YOU’LL NEVER TEAR APART

 

WHAT HAS BEEN AWOKEN…NEVER CAN BE BROKEN.
