 "Too many people standing their ground Standing the wrong crowd Brother's face He possessed a race Possession A war that doesn't end Children of God feed on Children of Earth These days people don't care for people These days are the hardest Material fields, material harvest Decoration on chain that binds, mirrors gold The People lose their mind"

 "But the Tribes will not go without return Genetic light from the other side A song from the Heart Our Hearts to give The Wild Age, the Glory Days live We are the Land How do we sell our Mother ? How do we sell the Stars ? How do we sell the Air ? " We are..... The Seventh Generation We are...... The Seventh Generation (Lyrics by John Trudell)"
