At Standing Rock
There they are at standing rock
Protecting their only homes
While the government watches close
As they fly over with the drones
They have united so many tribes
In protest from all over the place
Because the government wants to run a line
As if they can't go around that place
Oh so many year ago in the past
They were forced to settle there
Now Government wants to run them over
For the greed and because they don't care
The folks at Standing Rock have gathered
To solidly stand their own ground
To stand up against "big brother"
But the media won't hardly make a sound
Had it been something stupid
It would be "the front page news"
They would have been all over it
With their very best of crews
Had it been a black man shot by cops
The news folks would be right there
But since it's about the indians rights
It surely seems that the press don't care
So stand your ground at "Standing rock"
Protect your ancesters in that ground
Don't let them run over your homes
If they want to run that pipe let them go around
They already knew this was comming
Long before they headed your way
If it costs them more pipeline
Well that's just a small price to pay
