"What Kind Of God"

 

I rode to my homeland

And carried the memory

Over the valley below

And the heart of a nation

The war cry was blazing

And the loss of my brothers and sons

Were all in the name of civilization



The empty moon saw I was leaving

With pride and hope in my heart

The mountains talk of

Far away dreaming



So came the invasion

Across from a faraway place

Into the new world

With guns and new order

They gave us religion

Then took away all of our rights

And forced us to live

Behind their new border



The four winds blow

And bring new vision

Where children laugh without fear

The land will speak

The people will listen



But yesterday my life was fading

With every reason to die

Ten miles to the north

As I rode my red horse

In the dying sun

And then when I saw

The white soldiers

One hundred or more in a line

Kill for the land

Saying their law will stand

What kind of god do they see?



The fighting is over

No matter what fear they might bring

My country will live

The dust clouds are falling

I stood by the river

And breathing the air that is life

Within the black hills

My spiritual calling



What kind of god can this be?
