lyrics

White man came unto this land
Promising fortune in hand
By the night the savage grew ill
Pestilence the savage will kill

And I know how you'll die
Covering up the last of your lies
The chieftain rides at night
Terror striking before the light

In secret the war parties meet
To sweep the white man off of his feet
Black paint on red cheeks and red chins
This battle the savage will win

And I know how you'll die
Covering up the last of your lies
The chieftain rides at night
Terror striking before the light

Now you reap what you sow
With your greed and your hate
Spread their blood all around
Let it soak all the earth

Watch the village burning down
The bodies lie upon the ground
Children cry, women weep
Savage war clubs beat on their cheeks

And I know how you'll die
Covering up the last of your lies
The chieftain rides at night
Terror striking before the light
