no way no how lyrics – blu

there’s no way, no how
that anything could ever hold a native down (2x)

(verse 1)
this land was once our own when were all a team
this land was called kanata which really means clean
and each and every one of us only had one name
yeah we were living peacefully until that one day
the sailors came along with all the sticks that thunder
what did we do that’s wrong?
the chiefs were left to wonder
they took it all away
the faces of the pale
they tried to take away our pride but they failed

(verse 2)
look at our native elders!
how can you hurt em more
removed them from their family
and even worse with force
our land was good enough
but still they tried to take what’s best
to try discourage our tradition was a failing test
which lead to punishment
and some were left to deceased
so many others lived but abused, mentally
the residential schools, my natives still tear
we made them look like fools ’cause were still here

(verse 3)
now what you see today is conjunction in the air
effecting on our natives
corruption everywhere
all kinds of sickness spreading
who’s gonna choose to fight before this further happens
or even suicide
but how can you neglect it
our women are abused. there feeling unprotected and
feeling so confused
and all these other murders, there uninvestigated
but still our spirit stays death can’t even take it

i know you feel it in your hearts and you know that its
how does it feel, to survive, still alive, never die
you know why because
