River Sand Creek

Versions: #1#2
From underneath a dark curtain they have taken our souls
We used to sleep without fear under a small dead moon
He was a twenty-year-old general
blue eyes in a blue coat
He was a twenty-year-old general
Son of a thunderstorm
 
There is a silver dollar on the bottom of Sand Creek
 
On the track of the bison, our warriors were too far,
When became louder and louder that music from afar
Three times I closed my eyes
Then again I was still there
I asked my grampa “Is it a dream?”
He said “It is. Have no fear”
 
Sometimes fishes sing on the bottom of Sand Creek
 
I started bleeding from the nose, strong as I was dreaming
A flash within one ear, in the other one the Heaven
The smallest, tiniest tears
The biggest, hugest tears
When the tree of the snow
Blossomed of red stars
 
Now the children sleep on the bottom of Sand Creek
 
When the sun rose the head from the shoulders of the night
There were only dogs and smoke, and the remainings of the fight
I shot an arrow at the sky
to let it breath
I shot an arrow at the wind
To make it bleed
 
The third arrow you’ll find on the bottom of Sand Creek
 
From underneath a dark curtain they have taken our souls
We used to sleep without fear under a small dead moon
He was a twenty-year-old general
blue eyes in a blue coat
He was a twenty-year-old general
Son of a thunderstorm
 
Now the children sleep on the bottom of Sand Creek
