shadows, stay close to me pianos, played hauntingly i've got mexican beer they were smoking a joint a japanese basket full of canadian coins come on, where did you go? shake off, oh no no, you were too slow i've got mexican beer they were smoking a joint a japanese basket full of canadian coins millionaires, caught unaware throw them on the fire and your eyes, are winter suns the light gives me no warmth millionaires, caught unaware throw them on the fire and your eyes, are winter suns the light gives me no warmth

about

The song "Ghost Dance" is in reference to the ceremonial dance performed by the Lakota/Sioux tribes prior to the massacre at Wounded Knee in 1890. This song is a dedication to their perseverance despite the continued injustices they have endured over generations (including the recent Dakota Access Pipe Line that risks poisoning their water supply).
We will be donating a percent of all purchases from our bandcamp to standingrock.org
