Lyrics

"Traditional native philosophy wisely considers how each community decision will affect 7 generations back and 7 generations forward. Now that's something to live by!"

I made my wish on a distant star
Mailed it out into cyberspace
I want to see my grandkids play
Watch them breathing in their freedom
I can’t stand still, no I can’t stand still

I see this world around me
Like one big family tree
Two hundred generations
As it’s handed down
It all comes down to you and me

We can drink the planet dry
Or we can try to feed the source
Can we agree to save this place
Instead of talking let’s start walking
We can’t stand still, no we can’t stand still

I see this world around me
Like one big family tree
Two hundred generations
As it’s handed down
It all comes down to you and me

Sometimes we’re victims to the way that we’ve become
Killin' our future, and the only cure for the world is love

I made my wish on a distant star
Mailed it out into cyberspace
I want to see my grandkids play
The torch is coming, let’s keep it running
We can’t stand still, no we can’t stand still

I see this world around me
Like one big family tree
Two hundred generations
As it’s handed down
It all comes down to you and me
