My name is Brendan Sheridan. I've been writing songs for a while, but recently I've felt that the content is good enough to share. I do this as a hobby and am not looking to make any money from my music. I hope my music can make people realize that destroying each other and the planet doesn't help anybody. And even if I only do that for two people, maybe they'll each do that for two others. ... more

Track Name: Seven Generations
Bullets rainin’ from the heavens
Tell me what are we defendin?
Our rights and our freedoms?
Yeah that’s what they tell us but tell me do you believe ‘em?
Yeah fire rainin’ from the heavens
Brainwashed into fightin’
For their greed and our dinners
In this battle there can be no winners
We gotta change our ways
Gotta start today
Before it gets too late
People we can’t wait

We’re dyin’ every day
Dyin’ anyway
Why not lend a hand?
Why not take a stand?
For the water and the land
Do you understand?
You could die complacent
Or filled with dedication
The end could take you by surprise
Or you could look the killer in the eyes
So which way will you die?
Will you give your life?
Will you sacrifice?
For perpetuation
Of Seven Generations
Seven generations
Seven generations

The revolution won't be televised
But it will be amplified
Callin’ the warrior nation
Sing out the declaration
We are the protectors
We are the respecters
We cannot be trespassers
Mother is the judge so ask her
We don’t want to outlive her
So we protect the sacred rivers
The oceans and the rains
The life blood in our veins
Cuz if she goes then so do we
People can’t you see?


We’re standin’ strong and starin’ down the barrel
Unmoveable courageous under threat of peril
Our hands are closed our fists are in the air
This is what we stand for we’re not goin anywhere
Ancestors have awoken
The Great Spirit has spoken
This is what a warrior looks like
This is what a warrior looks like
Physically different but mentally alike
Many tribes with a common mission
Many eyes with a common vision
Many roads with a common destination
Gatherin’ of the nations
Prayin’ for perservation
