The Shaman and the Thief lyrics

Frost in the air
Northern lights brought me here
And where I walk, God walks with me
I only eat what the earth has offered me
And no one owns the berries or leaves
Now you're in my house, and you call me a thief?

You don't understand
What it means to be of this land
You have to learn how to read marks on the trees
For the laws that you know, they don’t apply here

Such mighty words!
Are you God? I hadn't heard
Are you the one who made the wind blow?
Well, you must be great!
A creation that can create?
But the grass isn’t yours, and you don't make it grow

You are a sham
Don’t you know who I am?
I do not fold my hands
I'll never pray to what you call God
All that I need
Are ways to feed your greed | is earth beneath my feet
To have it all | to have it all
Shaman, you're a fraud!

So leave and leave me be, I'll drive you away
So leave and leave me be, I'll drive you away
Leave and leave me be, I'll drive you away

Shaman, old fool
Times change and so shall you
They will burn your house down and spit at your name

But thief beware: My song will linger here
And in time you will be sorry you came

My friend, save your breath
You’re chanting in vain

So leave and leave me be
So leave and leave me be
So leave and leave me be
I'll drive you away
