    Home recording, please enjoy for free or give what you want. ---- I was inspired to write this song by the amazing and beautiful struggle the Standing Rock Sioux tribe is waging in order to defend their -and our- water, our environment, our Mother Earth. Think of it as a call to arms, an attempt to shine some light on what is happening in North Dakota, and a plea for all of us to wake up and stand peacefully and prayerfully with the water protectors.

Hélène Renaut Los Angeles, California

Track Name: Meet Me At Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock
Stand with your sisters
Stand with your brothers
Stand for the river
Stand for Mother Earth
Meet me at Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock

It's time for us to wake up and speak out
Time to bring our bodies and our souls
To join together like there's no tomorrow
'Cause there might not be any tomorrow
If the Earth cannot breathe
If the trees cannot speak
And the flowers
Bloom for healing
Meet me at Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock

What will they say you have done
Your sons and daughters, our humanity to come
We are the ones we've been waiting for
We are the ones who will stand and roar
Will you stand for the water
Will you speak for your Mother
Let the flowers
Bloom for healing
Meet me at Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock

We are the ones we've been waiting for
We are the ones who will stand and roar
Will you stand for the water
Will you speak for your Mother
Let the flowers
Bloom for healing
Meet me at Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock

We are the ones we've been waiting for
We are the ones we've been waiting for
We are the ones we've been waiting for

Meet me at Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock
Stand with your sister
Stand with your brothers
Stand for the river
Stand for Mother Earth
Meet me at Standing Rock
Meet me at Standing Rock
