into the badlands, the white man came.
killing out of fear, what they couldn't explain.
disease unknown to this virgin land.
laid to waste, with the gun in command.
from the steel rails, and the blood of the kill.
burning carcasses, with a gleam in their eye.
the sheer sport, and the blood of the kill.
burning carcasses, till they had their fill.
the warrior ain't no more.
the warrior lost his war, the white man came and left his pain. now the warrior ain't no more.
the pain and the sorrow rose with the sun, ending their dreams with a whip and a gun.
taken their rights and their dignity too.
bound to be slaves, ready for abuse.
to the reservations, by government sent.
fill up the prisons, till they repent.
now the land, that's all that's left will be taken back, with another theft.
