Album: A World to Win: Songs from the Struggle for Global Justice

"This is a song about the anti-FTAA protests in Quebec City, 2001 and the ever-growing international movement against corporate globalization and capitalism that was born on the streets of Seattle and has continued in every corner of the globe. From the fights against hydro privatization in South Africa, the G8 in Kananaskis, incredible uprisings in Argentina and demonstrations in Seville, to name but a few, it is clear that the movement is growing stronger. We are still winning! We will make a different history - our history!"
Fires are burning,
wheels are turning
There's a -new sense in the air
With every thing to live for and only chains to lose
I hope you'll find me there..

Everybody's confidence is growing
People are raising their voice
If you wanna find me come follow the noise
To fight back's no longer a choice.

If you wanna find me I'll be sleeping on the streets of Seattle
Washington's calling my name
Police force in Prague cannot push us back now
Things are never gonna be the same.

We're making history –Yeah, you and me…

People are finding their power
People are opening their eyes
We're learning that a better world is possible
Time to take back control of our lives.

If you wanna find me I'll be sleeping on the streets of Seattle
Washington's calling my name
Tear gas in Quebec cannot push choke our movement
Things are never gonna be the same.

We're making history, -won't you come join me
We're making history, -yeah, you and me
I'm making a list of everything we're out to resist
When our battle is won and our freedom's begun
None of this shit will exist

Long line-ups for welfare checks
"Peace-keeping" weapons of war
Anorexic Disney girls, McDonald's makes me wanna hurl
And sweatshops where everyone's poor
Well, except the CEOs of course
But I could go on forever
I'll let you use your imagination
Of whose ass you'd like to kick first!

If you wanna find me I'll be screaming on the streets of Seattle
Washington's calling my name
Body bags in Genoa cannot intimidate a movement
Things are never gonna be the same

We're making history, won't you come join me
We're making history… Yeah, you and me
