Pain

I want to sing some happy songs
While dancing in the rain
To fill me up with happiness
And take away the pain

But pain lies deep within my heart
And silently I weep
Nightmares take the place of dreams
To haunt me as I sleep

I feel the pain of peaceful nations
Herded up like sheep
Confined to reservations
Making customs hard to keep

I feel the pain of warriors
Trying hard to make a stand
Against the deadly bullets
And the raping of their land


I feel the pain of mothers
As their world is torn apart
And everything they lived for
Now a memory in their heart

I feel the pain of fathers
Facing all that now remains
Whispers of the grandfathers
Across the empty plains


I feel the pain of children
As they try to understand
Why they are not allowed to live
As the Great Spirit planned

I feel the pain of all mankind
Who are not allowed to be
Everyone has the right to say
Here I am. What you see: that is me

I want to sing some happy songs
While dancing in the rain
Pray for peace for all mankind
And that will ease the pain
