lyrics

It’s gotta be Wild, it’s gotta be wild

Singing for the people out on the frontlines who’ve been fighting for the land this whole damn time
After hundreds of years of trying to push em’ aside, it’s time to work together to make things right
Find a rhythm in the water, the way the fish thrive, beating like a heart they keep us alive
So we’re singing for the Salmon, the life of the land, it’s all we ever had

(C)

See I have just one wish, for everyone to see the fact that these fish
The Chinook, the Pink, the Sockeye and Chum have the power to bring us all together as one
So it’s time to take a stand, time to make a choice, choose to raise up the Indigenous voice
So we’re singing for the Salmon, the life of the land, it’s all we ever had

(C)

This really is a chance to make things right, to show us that you’re different, fill the shadows with light
Listen to the words of our Indigenous friends, evict the fish farms and we’ll start to mend
The horrors of all these colonial ways, just come back and do all that you say
We’re singing for the Salmon, the life of the land, it’s all we ever had

from Us, released March 8, 2018
Wild was recorded at an occupation of Lana Popham’s Office (NDP Minister of Agriculture) in late September. This occupation was in solidarity with The Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Nation who have stood in firm opposition to fish farms in their territory for over 30 years.

50+ people occupied the office for the majority of the day to highlight the urgent need to ban open-net fish farms from coastal waters. These farms are breeding grounds for disease and cancers and are having dire impacts on wild salmon populations, many of which migrate right through the waters that are lined with fish farms.

On the day that I write this, brave members of The Musgamagw Dzawada’enuxw Nation, and many supporters from around the region, have been occupying a Marine Harvest Fish Farm for 150 days, calling for the government to evict Marine Harvest and “cleanse our waters” of fish farms.

Wild Salmon are the lifeblood of this coast and need protection desperately.
