Lyrics for Song: Bury My Heart At Wounded Knee [Live/Curfews]
Lyrics for Album: 1200 Curfews [1995]



Indian legislation's on the desk of the do right congressman

now he don't know much about the issues so he picks up the phone

and asks the advice of the senator out in Indian country

a darling of the energy companies their ripping off

what's left of the reservation



I learned the safety rule

I don't know who to thank

don't stand between the reservation

and the corporate bank

they're sending federal tanks

it isn't nice but it's reality



Bury my heart at wounded knee

deep in the earth

I said cover me with pretty lies

bury my heart at wounded knee



They got these energy companies

who want to take the land

and they got churches by the dozens

trying to guide our hands

and turn our mother earth

over to pollution war and greed

well



Bury my heart at wounded knee

bury my heart at wounded knee

I said deep in the earth

bury my heart at wounded knee

won't you cover me with your pretty lies

bury my heart at wounded knee

bury my heart at wounded knee



They got the federal marshals

we get the covert spies

we get the liars by fire

we get the FBI

they lie in court and get nailed

and still Leonard Peltier goes off to jail

(the bullets don't match the gun)



Bury my heart at wounded knee

an eighth of the reservation

bury my heart at wounded knee

it was transferred in secret

bury my heart at wounded knee

we got your murder and intimidation

bury my heart at wounded knee



My girlfriend Anna may

talked about uranium

her head was full of bullets

and her body dumped

the FBI cut off her hands

and told us she died of exposure

yeah right



Bury my heart at wounded knee

bury my heart at wounded knee

oh deep in the earth

bury my heart at wounded knee

won't you cover me with pretty lies

bury my heart at wounded knee

bury my heart at wounded knee

bury my heart at wounded knee

talk about a revolution



We had the gold rush wars

why didn't we learn to crawl?

and now our history gets written in a liar's scrawl

they tell me "; honey you can still be an Indian

down at the y on Saturday night''



Bury my heart at wounded knee

bury my heart at wounded knee

I said deep in the earth

bury my heart at wounded knee

and cover me with your pretty lies

bury my heart at wounded knee

bury my heart at wounded knee



Bury my heart

it was an eighth of the reservation

bury my heart

it was transferred in secret

bury my heart

got your murder, murder, murder and intimidation

bury me

bury me

bury me

bury my heart

bury my heart

bury my heart

bury my heart
