"A song about the resistance to the IMF, World Bank, WTO & FTAA,… a song about OUR version of democracy and the strength of the Teamster Turtle Alliance as a force to create the better world that we know is possible".
Now we're raging on the front lines, 50,000 strong this time
We've got a world to win…
Struggled our whole lives against this
It's the fight we wouldn't dream of missing
So get off your feet and hit the streets, its time to begin.

This is what democracy looks like,
This is what democracy feels like.

Now they hide behind their barricades, uniforms and pepper spray
Yeah, we know we got them scared.
They hide behind the walls they made – but no fence can keep away our anger
And by any means we're gonna make them hear us today.

This is what democracy looks like,
We're gonna show them what democracy feels like.

If you'd open up your eyes, then you'd see why we're fighting
But you hide behind your lies… We're gonna have to make you listen!


Now IMF and WTO, you'll find us everywhere you go
This is a promise we've made.
SAPs and FTAA, we're not gonna live that way
You can fuck your fence, your tear gas and your pepper spray.
'Cause
They're not what democracry looks like
We're gonna show you what democracry looks like

If you'd open up your eyes, then you'd see why we're fighting
But you hide behind your lies.. …We're gonna have to make you listen!

This is what democracy looks like,
This is what democracy feels like.

Now we're energized, electrified, found our power sis-by-side
So-so-solidarite dans la rue
Turtle kids and working class, together we can kick their asses
When we're fighting unified, there's no way we can lose

This is what democracy looks like
This is what democracy feels like
We're gonna show them what democracy looks like
This is what democracy feels like.
