Standing Rock (Loving the Water)

by Shining Lion and Black Feet

about

When I saw the Water Protectors at Standing Rock coming in prayer and peace being met with heavily armed police and military forces, I felt something deep open and activate in my heart. I instantly began sining this song. When plans to travel there fell through I focused my prayer into recording this song, and making a film of a water blessing to share in solidarity with all people and life on earth for the next 7 generations. Please sing with us. and look for the music video soon.

lyrics

DAPL Loving the Water

They have been doing this all over
Oppressing people with the power
Of their armed weapons
So we’re stepping
With a deeper power

One love standing rock world wide water protectors
*
They are down there in the amazon
And now we know what’s going on
They are over there at Standing Rock
And we are gonna put a stop
To the destruction of our sacred lands
All people are uniting hands
No longer will we cower in fear
Cause our mission is clear
Chorus
They have been doing this all over
oppressing people with the power
Of their armed weapons
So we’re stepping
With a deeper power

We love the water in the hearts of the National Guards
Who are paid to do violent deeds
We love the water in the hearts of our brothers and sisters
who work for the police
we love the water in the hearts of the CEOs
of these corporate companies
We love the water in the hearts
of those who have killed for their military machines
*
They have been doing this all over
oppressing the people with the power
Of their armed weapons
So we’re stepping
With a deeper power

With the power of love and the power of prayer
we disarm their missiles flying through the air
and with the power of love and the power of peace
we disarm their bullets their guns and machines
*
Dakota access pipeline
Our people on the front lines
Our hearts united to
protect the lifelines
Of mama Gaia, feel the fire lit inside our eyes
We rise as one tribe in these critical times
While armed police spit tear gas in our mama’s eyes
I face the east and pray with the sunrise
That Great Spirit touches all hearts and all lives
With love compassion and peace
We call upon the power of the tallest mountain peaks
All the living waters and the mighty thunder beings
The Buffalo eagle sacred pipe and holy wings
All our ancestors and the lineage of chiefs
Sitting bull, fools crow, black elk speaks
Ghandi Sellasie and Martin luther king
Aboriginal Indigenous Grandmas sing
Prayers for the future and true remembering
Yes we are connected to every living thing
Blessings to the hearts of every single human being
In The amazon and Standing Rock and all across the globe
To know that we are water

I am water, you are water, we are water yeah
I love water, you love water, we love water yeah

We are doing this all over
loving the water
yeah we are doing this all over
loving the sacred water

I am water, you are water, we are water yeah
I love water, you love water, we love water yeah
I am water, you are water, we are water yeah
I love water, you love water, we love water yeah
