All My Relations

All my relations, all my relations, all my relations
Listen in
Let me begin the...ritual again
Build faith in my revelations
Though the ice may seem too thin
See the grin on my child’ face
And know that we have to fight to win
Know that we have to fight to win
Remember what it means to be human


Shine our lights in the darkest places
Fear not the sight of truth on human faces
See, love always leaves its traces
And our job is to track it down in all
Get up after each and every fall
Not be too ashamed sometimes if we have to crawl
See, the worlds problems belong to us all


All my relations, all my relations, all my relations
Please listen in
I may not have the chance to say this to you again
So I pray that it may have a positive impact in the way, we're livin’
Our world is much in need
For those who plant the sacred seed
That will break through the concrete of fear, hate, and greed
So that mother earth and her children
Can once again breath


And my grandfather always told me
Only take what you need
Seek balance in all your relations
Have patience as you engage situations
Grandson, we are of the Gwich’in
But there are many other nations
Always remember many prayers have been placed with the seventh generation


All my relations, all my relations, all my relations
Listen in
In this generation of hope
We are building a clear vision
A metamorphosis to butterflies
And this is only the beginnin’
The light breeze that your feeling
Is about to become a wind
And if we would only spread our wings
We might catch our liberation
On this path I offer much peace, love and respect to you all
My relations
