This song is by Sittin Idol and appears on the album Gallery (2004).

This is their home
Through these hills, they roam
Now they're not alone
Boundaries were overthrown
How can you not despise
Your own ancestral ties
When they took this land
With a gun in hand

On the run in the fight
With fiery eyes
And the light of day
Not old
Through the dust of
Their past and the sacred
Stories their faces told
With his man and his gun
And the selfish pride
He would not fold
On higher ground
He heard the sound that
Made his blood run cold
Start runnin'

Well I'm fightin'
Leave me alone
'Cause I won't leave
This is my home
Well we were people of peace
Still we fought and won
Now we mourn our dead
And live on the run

Well they did what
They had to do
They fought the fight
And they fought it true
They did what no one
Believed could be done
But ask yourself
Have they really won?

On the run in the fight
With fiery eyes
And the light of day
Not old
Through the dust of
Their past and the sacred
Stories their faces told
With his man and his gun
And the selfish pride
He would not fold
On higher ground
He heard the sound that
Made his blood run cold
Start runnin'

Well I'm fightin'
Leave me alone
'Cause I won't leave
This microphone
They were people of peace
Still they fought and won
And now they mourn their dead
And live on the run

To the North
Where the livin' is free
Those people still live
With the memory
And what about general
Bold and brave
You can still spit on him
At his monumental grave

On the run in the fight
With fiery eyes
And the light of day
Not old
Through the dust of
Their past and the sacred
Stories their faces told
With his man and his gun
And the selfish pride
He would not fold
On higher ground
He heard the sound
He heard the sound
He heard the sound
He heard the sound
He heard the sound
