5. Lost Los Angeles (5.19)

Lost Los Angeles
We lose New York
When you lose the city
You lose it all

I hear the rumble
From a distant plain
Indians returning
To take their land again

You cannot hold the countryside
You cannot hold the sea
White man’s time is over…

Lost Los Angeles
We lose Detroit
When you lose the city
You lose it all

I hear the thunder
From the battle in the West
In a flash… I can see…
The warrior’s face again

You cannot hold the countryside
You cannot hold the sea
White man’s time is over
At last our world is free

All men are created equal
All men born free
Sioux, Apaches, Dakota…
Red cloud is back on track
White man’s time is over
Imperial powers passing by
Like raindrops in the sand
And when it’s over, in the end…
The Indians take their land

You cannot hold our Chinese allies
You cannot hold Black Hawk
White man’s time is over
At last our world is free

Lost Los Angeles,
We lose New York
When you lose the city
You lose it all

I hear the rumble
From a distant plain
Red Cloud returning…
Like fire in the rain
