Lyrics: 

 

Leonard Peltier sleeps in a prison tonight

 

For 400 years he’s lived with justice washed white

 

His crime was tradition spoken with pride

 

 

 

And the evidence that put him there

 

Was deliberately falsified

 

And the government spends a lot of money

 

To keep the red man quiet

 

 

 

He should say what he wants to say

 

And it’s time we listened

 

He should pray where he wants to pray

 

Without asking permission

 

 

 

Leonard Peltier

 

Where is the justice for Leonard Peltier?

 

 

 

June ’75 Pine Ridge Reservation

 

Two FBI trespass Lakota Nation

 

Looking for trouble their army waiting outside

 

 

 

And trouble they brought some

 

They were pawns in the big game

 

For stolen minerals and tourists

 

They were sacrificed in profit’s name

 

 

 

And what would you do?

 

As you stare into the face of

 

The genocide of your people

 

Put yourself in the place of

 

 

 

Leonard Peltier

 

Where is the justice for Leonard Peltier?

 

 

 

Somebody ask the Federal Bureau of Investigation

 

Somebody ask the Bureau of Indian Affairs

 

Somebody ask the Bureau of Land Management

 

Somebody ask the Environmental Protection Agency

 

 

 

Ask them about Raymond Yellowthunder
