about

Tatanka by GOALIE is a song about buffalo and the senseless slaughter they endured. A metaphor for what's happening around us today.

lyrics

TATANKA


I think I hear a sound
Trampling the ground
Look at all those guns
Everybody run

I think I hear a sound
Trampling the ground
Look at all those guns
Everybody run

I run away

suddenly there's dust and smoke and chaos everywhere
They've got us in the open and they don't seem to care

They're cutting us in half
Who's gonna raise the calves
Don't they understand
Our kids can barely stand

And we all wonder why
As we look up at the sky
Laying all around
Across the bloody ground

I run away

You left us dying here
On this Trail of Tears
Rotting in the sun
I hope you had your fun

Let's see how long you last with me
No bullets at your side
Try to run. Try to hide
You know you're gonna die
Let's see how long you last with me
No bullets at your side
Try to run. Try to hide
You know you're gonna die

You took it all away. Why?

And what were the horses thinking?
Why didn't they try to help us?
