After 3 songs, a friend Ashley Taylor joined her on stage and accompanied Mariee 'songs at the xylophone.It seems that the support of his entourage had been important tonight because Matt Bauer was also behind the scenes.

Mariee Sioux - Lyrics Flowers and blood


i never asked for to find my twin, but there you are
no, i never asked for to find my twin, but there you are
and i never asked for the spools to unspin, but there they roll
no, i never asked for the spools to unspin, but there they roll
i never asked for to carve your ribs, but here i go
and i never asked for to carve your ribs, but here i go
and i've never pleaded for a new skin as i do now
i've never pleaded for a new skin as i do now

oh, flowers and blood
build up a new me of flowers and blood
flowers and blood
build up a new me of flowers and blood
build up a new me of flowers and blood
flowers and blood

i'll shoot me a gun made of leaf and branch in this here town
i'll shoot me a gun made of leaf and branch in this here town
and eat me a bowl full of secret and mud, yes, i will
i'll eat eat me a bowl full of secret and mud, yes, i will
if you build up a new me of flowers and blood -- say you will
build up a new me of flowers and blood -- say you will
and i'll see you a baby of drying clay, so don't you cry
i'll see you a baby of drying clay, so don't you cry


oh, flowers and blood
build up a new me of flowers and blood
flowers and blood
build up a new you of flowers and blood
build up a new us of flowers and blood
run us a river of flowers and blood
flowers and blood
build up a new us of flowers and blood
build up a new us of flowers and blood
oh, run us a river of flowers and blood
run us a river of flowers and blood
oh, flowers and blood

Mariee Sioux - Lyrics Bundles


"So can you, can you, can you tell me?
So can you, can you, can you tell me?


If it's easier to be emptier but lighter

Or if it's easier to be the lantern or the fire
If it's easier to be a lover or an echo
If it's easier to be the bull or the fighter
Or if it's easier to die by arrows or by tigers


If it's easier to fly by monarchs or by sparrows

By monarchs or by sparrows


Oh, let me know
And there's a grizzly bearing in me There's a grizzly bearing in me..."

Mariee Sioux - Lyrics Bravitzlana rubakalva


bravitzlana rubakalva
is a country i made for us
bravitzlana rubakalva, our very own country
in bravitzlana rubakalva

we will build cabins
of redwood heart and old animal eyes
floors and walls of crystal

and we will sing around the fiery treestumps
we will play the woods
and in bravitzlana rubakalva
our grey hair, it will not burn
no, no, our grey hair
it will not burn

and we will, and we will
and we will drop our lanterns in the darkness
we will dance all bright and fire
and we will drop our lanterns in the darkness
we will dance all bright and fire
and we will waltz with them red flickers
red, orange, red, one, two
one, two, three, one, two, three..

bravitzlana rubakalva, our very own country
bravitzlana rubakalva
oh, there, we have see-through bellies
where we can, where we can
where we can watch all the miracles happening
and we can watch our organs clapping
and we can, and we can
and we can watch our bread dissolving
and we can watch our cells dividing
and we can see our babies floating
and we can watch them form from nothing
sit back and just watch them form from nothing
we can, and we can, and we can, and we can, and we can, and we can
and we can, and we can, we can watch our blood a-rushing
rushing past the walls of our canyons
and we can watch each other's muscles dancing
as we lay in each other's arms

'cause in bravitzlana rubakalva
our arms ain't attached to bodies

Mariee Sioux - Lyrics Wild Eyes


"Remember you could weep fire
Remember you could weep fire with wild eyes
With wild eyes, oh those wild eyes"



"Papa my pine whistler sparrow-eyed sun misser
Papa my pine whistler sparrow-eyed moon blisser
Mama my jaw clincher spirit mouthed ghost dancer
Mama my vein braider thousand year bone burner
Mama my tongue twister thousand pronged antlers
Mama my tongue twister thousand pronged antlers
Mama my vein braider thousand pronged antlers, antlers
And oh her wild eyes, oh her wild eyes"

Mariee Sioux - Lyrics Friendboats


send some friendboats made from wood bones
for all that i have known has rowed away from this coast
and carve me a mask from the safety of their decks
and make me a dress from their masts


for i have never known such missing of that breaking water
no, i have never known such missing of that breaking water
no, i have never known
such missing of that breaking water

so when i go
please, when i am gone
when i go
please, when i am gone
then, burn me with their bows

and toss some saving golden ropes to
let us set anchor so far away from this coast
then close off this darkness with curtains of sails
and cast it forever into the chests of the whales

for i have never known such missing of that breaking water
no, i have never known such missing of that breaking water
no, i have never known
such missing of that breaking water

so when i go
please, when i am gone
when i go
please, when i am gone
then, burn me with their bows

Mariee Sioux - Lyrics Buried in teeth

"Buried in teeth
Buried in teeth Buried in teeth
Can't tell if I've got black roots or braids

Growing out of my head
Grandfathers eating our graves Buried in teeth


Buried in teeth

Buried in teeth


Can't tell if I've got rivers or veins

Running under my skin

Flowing out over the plains

There's trapped antennae

All tangled up with these brains

And the spin of cocoons whispers your names"
