Katrina...who could forget. Spoke to survivors and knew I had to get this one out. They found it credible too, which was very emotional for me.



(Verse 1)
Drowning on land - howlin’ at the moon
I am a neo native
Levees gone - Tribal storms
floods hide this legacy

Sacrifice coming
Black clouds bring the wind
rush to the higher ground
Native born - I have soared
Nature’s fury cries a tear

(chorus 1)
on my father’s land
on his grandfather’s land
all I see is an ocean
lost my mother’s home
and a grandmother’s hope
still I hear them pray for this neo native

(Verse 2)
Pale thoughts - Proud minds
Thunder rules the sky
Waiting here for those green painted faces
with giant wings they appear

A watery tomb subsides
We call this place New Orleans
Native born – families torn
With a grasp we can touch the sky

(chorus 2)
So we prayed like Job
What can one place endure?
Now all I feel is the water
As the night draws near
We’re Americans here
Ivory towers hear our cry… “some are still alive”

No sight of our brothers - Help is too far away
Death surrounds us now - And it has for days
Open arms in Dallas - Red Cross refugees
“found”, this knave… rescued at last from an empire’s grave.
(repeat both chorus)
