Snow Lioness

Versions: #1#2
I really do exist, I'm a feminist, environmentalist and pacifist
I ride a snow mobile and I'm an egoist
I'm a Buddhist, I believe in Jesus Christ
I was here first, not last
Don't treat me like some court case
The difference between yours and mine is just lines on a page
Of historical lies and fabrications
 
Anti-racist, my ass
When you can't tell who you scammed out of their cash
He, she, they, son
You stole our land from us once
 
Indigenous woman, snow lioness, I'm the rainbow in your retina
I'm all that, I'm more, I'm queer, I've existed here for thousands of years
 
Hi Minister, can I have a word with you?
Even though you’ve got a lot on your plate
This pertains to what is actually our land
Did you know we commit suicide
Because our population is too small to exist?
And anything that pertains to the few doesn't matter
Do you understand? No one wants to disappear
When they've been here as long as the land can remember
 
Is this really democracy
When the majority has power over people like us?
I want to be free, not just feel free
What do I have to do in order to belong?
 
Indigenous woman, snow lioness, I'm the rainbow in your retina
I'm all that, I'm more, I'm queer, I’ve existed here for thousands of years
 
Indigenous people, always existed, I am the lion heart with great power
I am everything, queer as well, rainbow from edge to edge
 
Thanks!

Eamiálbmot, álo gávdnon, mon lean lejonváibmu garra fámuin
Mon lean gait, bonju maid, arvedávgi ravddas ravdii

Indigenous people, always existed, I am the lion heart with great power
I am everything, queer as well, rainbow from edge to edge
