about

This track is dedicated to the people of the "Idle No More" movement.

lyrics

Hurt no more
Shame no more
Cause the times are a changing
From this land
Is where I came
From this land
I’ll never go
All my heart
All my soul
Is here in this country
There’s no man
There’s no god
That can drive this nation away

No more lands for the taking
No more rights to be breaking

Cause we’re
Idle no more
Idle no more
We’re idle no more
Idle no more

Hurt no more
Brother mine
For our land won’t be taken
Written words
Have no meaning
When said in a lie
Cry no more
Sister mine
For your children are waiting
On the land
Where they’ll grow
To know freedom’s embrace

No more lies will be spoken
No more dreams will be broken

Cause we’re idle no more
Idle no more
Idle no more
I’ll be idle no more
Idle no more

No more tears will be spilling
No more hearts will be breaking

No more dreams will be broken
No more lies will be spoken

Hear me now
Mother earth
For a son of yours I am
Give me strength
To understand
So I can be as you
With your power
I’ll face the wind
With your power
We can win
Walk the road
The red road
To your tender embrace
Your tender embrace

We’ll be Idle no more
Hear me now
We’ll be idle no more
Hear me now

Idle no more
Idle no more
We’ll be idle no more
Idle no more
