The USA Is A Monster - George Catlin and the Mandan Chief lyrics

An artist came
To capture
What could not remain
Mandan's village
On the upper Missouri
Earthen wigwams
With the gra**es all around
Hunter warriors
So long as bison could be found
And some had blue eyes
And long silver hair
Glowing twilight
Of this ancient way of life
Te Ho Pe Ne Wah She

The likeness of the Mandan's chief
Was recognized with disbelief
Excited curiosity
Of the entire village at once
The markings of the brush and hand
They could not understand
A powerful new medicine
[Lyrics from: https:/lyrics.az/the-usa-is-a-monster/wohaw/george-catlin-and-the-mandan-chief.html]
Awe and fear of the unknown dangerous
The women made a tremolo
To mourn the partial d**h of their chief
For in their minds the painting
Was a living part of the man
Captured by the magician
Te Ho Pe Ne Wah She

A man who can make a living person
Simply by staring at them
Could perhaps destroy this life
In the same way

The likeness of the Mandan's chief
Was recognized with disbelief
Captured by the magician
Te Ho Pe Ne Wah She

Mandans as your life was taken
Visions how it used to be
Mandans driven to extinction
Paintings for our eyes to see
