Born in the first month of 1966
In a place that people on both coasts call the sticks
Born on a reservation ignored even by the BIA
Dispersed in the north of Idaho
A tribe from Coeur D'Alene

At 14 you joined the men working in the mountains every day
But each day for a days pay, no promise of work the next day
No promise of safety, but,
Tons of lumber consistently
Come down from the mountain,
for the timber industry

Burn the slash
Help the U.S. bridge the trade gap
Cut a wedge from a fur tree
And pray it falls the right way

Sometimes those who have the power to starve us
Sometimes those who have the power to crush us
Recruit us as friends
Subdue us with a paycheck
Use us as allies, and,
Confuse us with lies

Their lies steal from us now
Like trees from the side of a mountain
Their lies they cut down the spirit inside of us,
That lives to be loved
Loves to live
Lives to be true
I wish I knew you

Sometimes, the only way we know to get relief
Is to swim to the other side
I hope that you found peace
You jumped from the bridge in Avery
Into the darkness, into the night
When you let go of those iron bars
You let go of your life

Burn the slash
Help the U.S. bridge the trade gap
Cut a wedge from a fur tree
And pray it falls the right way

My only wish is you had lived long enough to realize
The system is for another's gain, and as we grow up we realize
The pain inside is passion
Passion feels like pain
Sometimes the passion inside us feels like pain

Born in the first month of 1966
In a place that people on both coasts call the sticks
Born on a reservation ignored even by the BIA
Dispersed in the north of Idaho
A tribe from Coeur D'Alene
