The Price

Sitting round the fire
Talking how the west was won
Don't you know the teepees vanished
Once the buffalo were done

We wanna fight we wanna battle
Rage against the dying light
But all we got are hunger pangs
No enemy in sight

It's the price we pay
It's the price we pay
Each and every day
It's the price we pay

The shooters and the shamans
And the madman's poetry
The trials and tribulations
As we rage at deities

The future feasts upon our time
Like a rabid dog
Leaves the past in ruins
Shrouded in the fog

It's the price we pay
It's the price we pay
Each and every day
It's the price we pay

Can we be a loyal dog-gie?
Will they pick us for a pet?
Can we learn to rollover?
Is there something we can fetch?

We whistle past our graves
Recite a little psalm
Resist the storm's fierce wind
Yearning for some calm

It's the price we pay
It's the price we pay
Each and every day
It's the price we pay
