We Are Maquis
by Mel Tatum
tto: Garth Brooks’ We Shall Be Free

This ain’t comin’ from our people; It ‘s a Federation Plan
When I close my eyes I see the way this world might be
If we all can keep our land

‘Cause the treaty called for us to move
‘Cause the DMZ has displaced hearth and home
‘Cause the planet now is not our own
We are Maquis

Cause the first thing we confront are the Cardassians
And the next thing we look at are the weapons on hand
‘Cause the skies and the oceans must be ours again
We are Maquis

We are Maquis; We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud
Cause we are Maquis

When we’re free to stay on home planets
When the DMZ can hold all different views
When the treaty ‘s thrown out, it shall be welcome news

‘Cause we shall be free
We are Maquis; We shall be free
Have a little faith; Hold out
‘Cause here come Maquis

And when Gul Duk at is no longer in charge
And Sisko backs Necheyav down
When there’s no DMZ and that ‘s a fact
Then we shall succeed

We are Maquis; We shall be free
find the smuggler ‘s cave, steal arms
We are Maquis

We are Maquis;We shall be free
Stand straight, have a little faith
We are Maquis
