"the sound clip at the end of the song is a live recording i took of a ceremony prayer at a Standing Rock benefit we played in Washington, DC. The prayer was done by the amazing indigenous folx of Guatemala in solidarity with standing rock. Listen to the prayer, it could bring closure in dark, difficult times as these."
They tried to bury us, they didnt know we were seeds!
They tried to silence us

appropriate to a system that
doesn't work for the marginalized.

the broken home
children that roam
