about

Written from the perspective of a caribou

lyrics

What happened
We've got nowhere to go
Time quickens
It used to pass so slow

A hundred years ago
A thousand of us strong
March to the treeline
Where our children born

I once was one among so many...

Recall the lichen
Green fresh sweet
Now air is acrid
Quickens my heartbeat

Skip to the present
We're fragile as glass
Wild rushing waters
Fragmented our past

Once was one among so many
Once was one among so many
I once was one among so many
Now I'm one among the few
One among the few
One among the few
