(Lyrics) Town With Bad Wiring

Wounded Knee Postal Service (word and music by Matt Moore)
*see Wounded Knee Massacre

two red stripes a tattered star
waving in the breeze
corn don’t grow
ground’s too dry to sew
so you don’t so it goes

(Chorus)
and the postman’s generals don’t come here anymore
it’s a long long way to wounded knee

Mr. High Hawk
Mr Shading Bear
Black Coyote
Scatters Them
Yellow Robe
Pretty Hawk
Sherman Horn Cloud
Strong Fox

(Chorus)
and Red Clouds heart is buried here somewhere
in the cold hard ground of Wounded Knee

Wolf Skin Necklace
White American
Red Fish
Long Bull
Young Afraid of Bear
Little Water
He Crow
Swift Bird
Ghost Horse
Spotted Elk (first given name of Bigfoot – Chief of the Miniconjou Souix)

(Chorus)
if you need to know the postman’s generals don’t come here anymore
it’s a long long way to wounded knee

Katydid (word and music by Matt Moore)

who was singing to the forest
who was singing to the stream
who would always sing before the weather
back before catastrophe

Katydid she sang to the forest
Katydid she sang to the stream
Katydid we thought your song would last forever
but they put a shopping mall up where you lived

who would sing to them at twilight
who would sing to them at dawn
who’s singing woke them in the morning
museum’s kiosk crucified the song
that once was performed for orchids
once performed right where I stand
that once proclaimed the wildness of our nature

Katydid she sang to the forest
Katydid she sang to the stream
Katydid we thought your song would last forever
