Feel the beat beneath my feet

Can you feel the beat beneath my feet?

Can you feel the rhythm if the drum?

Can you feel the beat of the Earth?

Dance to her song!

 

I hear the echoes of the past

Flash inside my mind.

I hear the thundering drum;

My people’s wailing cries.

 

I hear my ancestors, the Dine,

The Holy Ones, soaring in the wind.

Their spirits fly towards the Sun,

Then something lets the darkness in…

 

I must feel the beat beneath my feet!

I must feel the rhythm of the drum!

I must feel the beat of the Earth,

So I never forget her song.
