Defend the Sacred

(Chorus)
Defend the sacred. Honor the past.
Leave the people with a land that will last.

(Verse 1)
Standing Rock, we stand with you.
Fists & prayers, brothers sisters Sioux.
Oil & jobs for who? Not us.
Invest instead in Earth & trust.

(Chorus)
Defend the sacred. Honor the past.
Leave the people with a land that will last.

(Verse 2)
We ride the cold December wind with you.
We’re burning in the embers of your fires.
Protect the prairie, the water, the life,
from the greedy hands of the rich & white.

(Chorus)
Defend the sacred. Honor the past.
Leave the people with a land that will last.

Hold your ground, high, steady & proud.
