lyrics

Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land

On the street bench another pair of junkie eyeballs
And there but for the grace of god
And maybe midnight wouldnt break the shoulders
If somebody had of spared the rod

Round every corner is just another trap
Behind my heartbeat is a fresh set of tracks
And the shadow wouldnt touch me
on the bottom of my feet
If I could just stay in the air

The rain washes over the streetlights reflection
But the streetlights reflection never gets clean
And standing around in the sleeping solstice
Is just a handful of human beings

Theres dirty hands on every doorknob
Faces with pushed in smiles
Cuts and fissures draining away the lifeblood
entrails dragging for miles

Dried blood on some empty white faces
lookin for somethin that was never there
rattlin padlocks hiding frozen beads and blankets
whispering their unnatural prayers

And up in heaven with impunity
Meting out judgement and moral certainty
And on earth on the business end of a shotgun
Is somebody with animal eyes
And nobody with money

Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
Manitoba Manitoba is Indian land
