    1. You think you own whatever land you land on
      The earth is just a dead thing you can claim
      But I know every rock and tree and creature
      Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

      You think the only people who are people
      Are the people who look and think like you
      But if you walk the footsteps of a stranger
      You’ll learn things you never knew you never knew

      Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
      Or asked the grinning bobcat why he grinned?
      Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
      Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?
      Can you paint with all the colors of the wind?

      Come run the hidden pine trails of the forest
      Come taste the sun-sweet berries of the earth
      Come roll in all the riches all around you
      And for once, never wonder what they’re worth
      [ Lyrics from: www.lyricsmode.com/lyrics/v/vanessa_williams/colors_of_the_wind.html ]
      The rainstorm and the river are my brothers
      The heron and the otter are my friends
      And we are all connected to each other,
      In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

      Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
      Or let teh eagle tell you where he’s been
      Can you sing with all the voices of the mountain?
      Can you paint with all the colors of the wind
      Can you paint with all the colors of the wind

      How high does the sycamore grow?
      If you cut it down, then you’ll never know

      And you’ll never hear the wolf cry to the blue corn moon
      For whether we are white or copper-skinned
      We need to sing with all the voices of the mountain
      Need to paint with all the colors of the wind
      You can own the earth and still
      All you’ll own is earth until
      You can paint with all colors of the wind

    2. @ian: Most north american natives do, don’t they?

      @Puu: Love the song (and the movie). Hate how everybody around me seems to miss the point and focuses on whining about how the baaaaad Disney people painted some noble savage ideal.
