lyrics

Yellow moon in flight
Night burning bright
Fireflies and a native dance
Around the fire and holding hands

Calling sacred this body of earth
Calling sacred every soul’s worth
Calling sacred every star that shone
Calling sacred every animal roam

I hear the wild-horse distance run
Smell the fire held my hand to the sun
Hear the children light and laughing
Ate the corn ripe and sweet

Thought I heard a whisper put my ear to the ground
Thought I heard a raven though it made no sound
Calling down the breeze of morning
Crow feathers flutter

All the people including you
Share a secret smile
Light or living high or named
After river, forest and rain

Into the mountains and into the sun
After winter and what may come
Corn from a seed, life in a grain
Blood from the water, flesh from her veins

I hear the wild-horse distance run
Smell the fire held my hand to the sun
Hear the children light and laughing
Ate the corn ripe and sweet

Thought I heard a whisper put my ear to the ground
Thought I heard a raven though it made no sound
Calling down the breeze of morning
Crow feathers flutter

Bring down the sun sacred father king
Bring down the moon sacred mother queen
Into these bones and through these eyes
Of every man, every woman alive

Mining a new groove, and with a kind of rough grace, DOUBLEWIDE, the 37 song, 2 CD set from the NEW WHITE TRASH, chronicles the slide of the former American middle-class down a steep and slippery slope to the New White Trash, a place impartial to race, religion, creed or color. ... more
