Lyrics:


Great spirit, I have had it
Bring me back to the nomadic
Way of weaving through the damage
Mindful, stay mindful

Great spirit, for my sisters
Let me be a flowing river
Flood the banks, the rocks that bind her
Carry, I'll carry

Great, Great Spirit

Great, Great Spirit

Great spirit, for my brothers
Let me be a mountain under
Which he climbs to discover
His process, now that's progress

Great Spirit, all that hinders
Tie reminders to my fingers
I must speak with you more often

Great, Great Spirit

Great, Great Spirit

Great Spirit, for my relations
Give them strength to face racism
In every single situation
Easy now, go on, speak loud

Great Spirit, take me instead
Guide me down the road of red
Tunkashila, I am saying, praying

Great, Great Spirit

Great, Great Spirit

Tunkashila
Tunkashila
Tunkashila
Tunkashila

Great Spirit, system collapse
Nothing but the Earth will last
And I will be singing sweetly into the darkness
now heartness

Great Spirit, on my tongue
Be still, be still, the time will come
When everyone will sing "All Life is Sacred"
Well, I'm waiting

Great Spirit, my fist is up bringing the power to the people
You're a reflection of us
Some of your people can't hear it
The cries of the Earth

Some of your people can't feel it
The way that it hurts
And it hurts, Great Spirit

And it moves, Great Spirit
Interconnected in the wreckage of a paradigm on
Its way out, its way out
Speaking of spiritual lyrical testimonies

A spirited lyricist weaving around false prophecies
A spirit directed and selected with the message I bring
While the ship slowly sinks, I've been directed to sing

I'm like a wrecking ball breaking down the walls of the past
A minimalist, living off bliss with the last of my cash

You're gonna be justified with how you treated the land
You're gonna be by my side, when I stand and demand a change

Change

Tunkashila
Tunkashila
Tunkashila
Tunkashila

Great, Great Spirit

Great, Great Spirit

Great, Great Spirit

Tunkashila

Great, Great Spirit

Tunkashila
