Soon I will be here no more 
You'll hear my tale 
Through my blood 
Through my people 
And the eagle's cry 
The bear within will never lay to rest 

Wandering on Horizon Road 
Following the trail of tears 

White man came 
Saw the blessed land 
We cared, you took 
You fought, we lost 
Not the war but an unfair fight 
Sceneries painted beautiful in blood 

Wandering on Horizon Road 
Following the trail of tears 
Once we were here 
Where we have lived since the world began 
Since time itself gave us this land 

Our souls will join again the wild 
Our home in peace 'n war 'n death 

Wandering on Horizon Road... 

" I still dream every night 
Of them wolves, them mustangs, those endless prairies 
The restless winds over mountaintops 
The unspoilt frontier of my kith n'kin 
The hallowed land of the Great Spirit 
I still believe 
In every night 
In every day 
I am like the caribou 
And you like the wolves that make me stronger 
We never owed you anything 
Our only debt is one life for our Mother 
It was a good day to chant this song 
For Her 

Our spirit was here long before you 
Long before us 
And long will it be after your pride brings you to your end "
