Turtle Island

>>>>Click to Hear the Song Turtle Island<<<<

Turtle Island is what natives called North America

Lies and deceit ripped ‘em right off of her

Newcomer deceivers erased 1000’s of tongues and nations

Then fenced the rest onto Indian Reservations

Up is down – Left is right – Good is evil – Weakness is might

Yes means no – Maybe not – Means most definitely

Treacherous objectives every native’s treaty

 

I have native-blood in my veins

I have Celtic and Euro-blood in my veins

Because of what ancestors did – We are all shamed

But don’t look at my skin and apply blame

 

Up is down – Left is right – Good is evil – Weakness is might

Yes means no – Maybe not – Means most definitely

Deception, entrapment, & trickery in every native’s treaty

 

Turtle Island had many different cultures

First befriended then discarded like bones by vultures

In 400 years evolved in a new kind of bigotry

Extermination by Manifest Destiny

 

Up is down – Left is right – Good is evil – Weakness is might

Yes means no – Maybe not – Means most definitely

Empty words and lies in every native’s treaty
