Album: Self-titled [2003]
Free trade agreements are evil
They are set-up to incorporate life
The corporations that push them are greedy
They'd profit from your suffering, pain and strife
The FTAA is nothing more than torture
It's only benefiting Northern hands
Argentina and Bolivia are clear pictures
Of the truth behind these dirty corporate plans

You've got to free the people
Before you free the trade
And throw out you're helping hand to lend
If you care about the people
And you care about the trade
You stop these bastards before they kill again.

The World Bank is a pointless institution
It's goal is nothing short of world control
They murder, lie and desecrate small countries
They kill whole villages for gold, oil and coal
The World Bank does not care about freedom
They support corrupt regimes in every land
They are privatizing third world food and water
And killing off those who'd dare take a stand.

You've got to free the people
Before you free the trade
And throw out you're helping hand to lend
If you care about the people
And you care about the trade
You stop these bastards before they kill again.

The IMF is loaning sums of money
To governments they know are full of crooks
Their SAPs are economic sabotage
They rather open markets than open books
They cut funding to health and education
And insist on spending more on debt relief
It's been going on for years now unhindered
And it won't stop until we block off every street

You've got to free the people
Before you free the trade
And throw out you're helping hand to lend
If you care about the people
And you care about the trade
You stop these bastards before they kill again.

And then there is the World Trade Organization
A terrorist group that's full of selfish hate
They imperialize and murder foreign leaders
They support sweatshops, death squads, fascism and rape
Along with the IMF and World Bank
They seek to make the world the USA
And Hitler would be jealous of their policies
I'll be damned if we don't make these people pay

You've got to free the people
Before you free the trade
And throw out you're helping hand to lend
If you care about the people
And you care about the trade
You stop these bastards before they kill again.

The world is being killed off pretty quickly
The murderers are sitting in DC
They're presidents, CEOs and bankers
And they don't give a damn bout' you or me
They'll slowly strangle this planet with a smile
And the news will listen up to their advice
Free Trade is just another name for genocide
If we don't rise up we'll forever pay the price

You've got to free the people
Before you free the trade
And throw out you're helping hand to lend
If you care about the people
And you care about the trade
You stop these bastards before they kill again.
