Anti-Flag Lyrics

*  Seattle Was A Riot



Why must we riot?
Why must we protest? 
Just to be heard by the world? (by the world)

Seattle was a riot, they tried to pin on us 
But we didn't show up, with gas and billy clubs 
An un-armed mass of thousands, just trying to be heard 
But there are no world leaders- that want to hear our words. Ohhh. 

Why must we riot?
Why must we protest?
Just to be heard by the world? 
Why must we riot?
Why must we protest?
Just to be heard by the world?

The World Bank's greed and lies, digs graves in 3rd world lands 
And fills them with the remains of exploited workers 
Or displaced native peoples, and destroyed ecosystems 
Under the guise of progress, relief, and tech assistance. Ohhh. 

Why must we riot?
Why must we protest?
Just to be heard by the world? 
Why must we riot?
Why must we protest?
Just to be heard by the world?  

Since the dawn of history -the few who own control
Have bent and rewrote history-how they want it to go 
They try to control what we learn-and take away our rights 
'Cause when the masses round the world unite 
That's a force they cannot fight, cannot Fight 
We'll fight for our We'll fight for our We'll fight for our We'll fight for our Rights!

Why must we riot?
Why must we protest?
Just to be heard by the world?
Why must we riot?
Why must we protest?
Just to be heard by the world?

Sitting in what was designated the "Cooperation Zone" by Seattle Police Sergeant Richard Goldstein 
They sat heads bowed- listening as the police methodically shot pepper spray-
one eye at a time into the eyes of our passive brothers and sisters 
Whore like police- playing judge, jury, and executioner for their pimp like bosses 
in the World Bank and W.T.O. 
This is not justice. 
This is not the role of The Servants of the People 
Such tyranny brings ruling classes crashing to the ground and contemporary societies to an end.
