about

WE STAND, is a song written by Kelli Love, featuring Jordan Walker and MoonCat Preach of ONE TRIBE MOVEMENT, and the voices of the OCETI SAKOWIN YOUTH RUNNERS. Produced by Donnie Scantlebury, this song was inspired by the Lakota Oceti Sakowin Youth Runners who carried the message of Standing Rock to the White House and across the nation in prayer to protect the water from illegal crude oil fracking. The pipeline, called Dakota Access Pipe Line, threatens to pollute the river and poison the water for future generations. One Tribe Movement joined Standing Rock living at the camps The profits song is 100% donated to the Lakota youth who carried these prayers out to the world to support their continued efforts to protect the water for the next 7 generations.

WE STAND

OCETI SAKOWIN 7TH GENERATION YOUTH RUNNERS:

WE STAND WITH OUR BROTHERS
AND OUR SISTERS
WE STAND
WE STAND
WITH OUR PEOPLE
FOR ONE NATION
WE STAND
WE STAND
WESTAND
FOR WATER
FOR LIFE
WE STAND!

KELLI LOVE:
BROTHERS AND SISTERS CAN YOU HEAR THE SOUND?
OUR MAMA'S CRYING
THE WALLS ARE BURNING DOWN
CAN'T PUT OUT THE FIRE
BUT WE CAN HOLD THE FLAMS
RETURN NOW TO THE EARTH
FROM WHERE WE CAME
OUR PEOPLE ARE RISING UP
DANCING IN THE STREETS
VOICES OF THE ANCIENTS
FULFILL THE PROPHECIES

I WILL STAND WITH YOU
I WILL STAND WITH YOU
I WILL STAND WITH YOU
I WILL STAND WITH YOU

ALL:
I AM GONNA STAND WITH YOU
WHETHER YOU LEAD
WHETHER YOU FOLLOW
I AM GONNA STAND WITH YOU
NOT FAR BEHIND
RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
I AM GONNA STAND
STAND UP STAND TALL LIKE A MOUNTAIN
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
WE WILL STAND WE WILL STAND

JORDAN WALKER:
NOWS THE TIME TO STAND
FOR SACRED WATERS
SACRED LAND
EVERY WOMAN EVERY MAN
EVERY CHILD ON THIS EARTH JOIN HANDS
AND DONT BE AFRAID TO BE A MOUNTAIN
A MOUNTAIN
CALL UPON THE LOVE IN SIDE AND KNOW YOU'RE BOUNDLESS
BE A MOUNTAIN OF PEACE
BE A CHILD OF PEACE
BE A LION OF PEACE
BE AN OCEAN OF PEACE

ALL:
I AM GONNA STAND WITH YOU
WHETHER YOU LEAD

MOONCAT PREACH:
WILL YOU STAND FOR ME LIKE I STAND FOR YOU?
PEOPLE SEARCHING FOR THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH
I FOUND MY TRUTH
LOOK INTO THE EYES OF THE YOUTH
NOW I SEEK TO UPLIFT WITH EVERYTHING THAT I DO
MIRROR IMAGES REFLECTING THE CHANGE
MADE IN YOUR LIKENESS WE ARE ONE IN THE SAME
I FEEL YOUR PAIN
MEMORIES ARE CARRIED BY FLAMES
LOVE IS A MELODY I HEARD AN ANGEL SING
WE GOTTA OBTAIN A SYSTEM THAT IS BUILT TO SUSTAIN
CAN'T WASH US OUT LIKE A SHIRT WITH A STAIN
REMEMBER YOUR NAME THIS IS THE INDIGENOUS REIGN
SOVEREIGNTY IS WHAT WE PROCLAIM
STAND UP FOR THE 7 GENERATIONS WE COME
TO THIS EARTH AS THE CHOSEN ONES
ALIGN YOUR MIND WITH THE SIGNS AND TIMES
THE SHIFTS ABOUT TO GET REAL AND WE GONNA BE FINE SO JUST

KELLI LOVE:
PRAY FOR THE MAN WITH THE GUN IN HIS HAND
LAY DOWN YOUR WEAPONS AND COME MAKE A STAND
PRAY FOR THE CHILDREN WHO LOST THEIR WAY
PRAY FOR OUR PEOPLE WE NEED YOU
I PRAY FOR YOUR HEART CAUSE YOUR HURTING INSIDE
FROM ALL THE PAIN THAT YOU'RE TRYING TO HIDE
I'LL PRAY FOR YOUR HEALING
I'LL STAY BY YOUR SIDE
OPEN YOUR EYES I CAN SEE YOU.

ALL:
I AM GONNA STAND WITH YOU
WHETHER YOU LEAD
WHETHER YOU FOLLOW
I AM GONNA STAND WITH YOU
NOT FAR BEHIND
RIGHT BY YOUR SIDE
I AM GONNA STAND
STAND UP STAND TALL LIKE A MOUNTAIN
NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS
WE WILL STAND WE WILL STAND


WE STAND!
