about

what country do we want to be, Canada?

lyrics

Sleepwalker
Ice is breaking under
Dark shape rising
One finger in heaven

Who do we honour?
With our open water?
Who do we honour?
With our sons and our daughters?

The beast is sleepin’
Eyes not closed
Not even dreamin’
No chains surround him
Oh yet, he is frozen.

Who do we honour?
With our fear of each other?
Who do we honour?
If we continue to slumber?

Get up, my love
It’s time to rise and it’s time to cry
Get up, my love
Have you forgotten what it’s like? What it’s like to be alive?

Our sisters are missing
Votes don’t count
Fish aren’t swimmin’
Where did the tall, forest go?
Why did our country feed us to the wolves?

Who do we honour?
If we all stand together?
Who do we honour?
If we take hold of our future?

With glowing hearts we rise
With glowing hearts we die

chorus
