lyrics

Wooden Indian:

Feet low, arms holding.
Head high, wings soaring.
Dance, chant, come spirit,
Take me home, where I'm from.
I'll be still forever, awake, alive, alone. Yet in love, (alone) but reborn.

Sitting for years in silence, sober. WAKE UP!
Sunrise, I've been waiting here all night, why you been resting your eyes?
Moon tumbles round, then you come over. WAKE UP!
Sunrise, I've been waiting here all night why you been resting your eyes?

When it comes down to me,
I'm the one.

Stuck hard, still frozen.
Half alive, dead.

I know you're sad but you're too sad to even try and complain,
You're gonna cry but it's ok.
It's only what you make it, until you make it your own, time still eroding still,

Knee deep in fear of the silent cobra. WAKE UP!
Sunrise I've been waiting here all night why you been resting your eyes?
A thousand, million years, older than older. WAKE UP!
Sunrise I've been waiting here all night why you been resting your eyes?

Then it comes down to you,
Chant your chants, dance your dance.

If you could only believe it, maybe then you would see it.
Under different circumstance,
You might have to take the chance.
Easily sitting like a child, leads you further from denial, and if you've wondered for a while, that's why they call it Indian style.

Learn where it's from.
Be reborn.

Head, chest, breath flowing.
Mouth, eyes, face glowing.
Love, hate, desire.
Inheritance from our fathers.

See them in the clouds, over your shoulder. WAKE UP!
Sunrise, I've been waiting here all night, why you been resting your eyes?
The fear of finding out the silence is over. WAKE UP!
Sunrise, I've been waiting here all night, why you been resting your eyes?

So easy to believe, if only we can see, the need to free our wooden minds.
