"To The World" as written by Andrew Wansel, Robert S. Kelly, Jeffrey Lee Johnson, Malik Yusef El Shabbaz Jones, Cydel Charles Young, Warren Felder, Kanye Omari West and Che Smith....
Look how the ruts cling to my footsteps
The fatal invisible tool
By which we define we fight for our approval
And fear our removal from the safety of fools

From the tidal forces of our positions
Not won not one to take for granted
Are our rebel hymns in canted
To sing in the mines for the fortunate sons?

So brothers in spirit sisters in rage,
Will we live out our lives in this concrete cage?
Another heartbeat lost another police murder
Buried in the public eyes on the back page.
Heartbeats lost in a new world order
Hobbled and bound but still walking away

I pledge allegiance to the world
Nothing more, nothing less than my humanity
I pledge allegiance to the world
Searching for vision not invisibility
I pledge allegiance to the world
Searching for vision not invisibility
I pledge allegiance to the world
Until the last lock breaks none of us are free

Until the last lock breaks none of us are free.

We fight to balance our minds
Petty powers pushing profits over our lifetimes
World leaders mortaging our lives with words
I don't need to be reminded of whom you really serve.

Brothers in spirit, sisters in rage,
Will we live out or lives in this concrete cage?
Another hearbeat another police murder
Buried in the public eyes on the back page.
Too many heartbeats lost in the new world order
While we're standing alone with our backs to the maze

I pledge allegiance to the world
Nothing more, nothing less than my humanity
I pledge allegiance to the world
Until the last lock breaks none of us are free
I pledge allegiance to the world
Until the last lock breaks none of us are free
I pledge allegiance to the world
For nothing more, nothing less

In justice in hunger united
Searching for vision united
In justice in hunger united
Law and order but for whose order?

I pledge allegiance to the world
Nothing more, nothing less than my humanity
I pledge allegiance to the world
Until the last lock breaks none of us are free
I pledge allegiance to the world
Under no nation will we ever be
I pledge allegiance to the world
For nothing more, nothing less
Than my humanity, than my humanity, than my humanity (pledge allegiance)
To our humanity, to our humanity, to our humanity (to the world)

    General Commentthis song is about uniting against the growing near-inpenetrable but ever-visible new world order. it's a helpless yet hopefull scream from the depths of the underground--home of the true patriots--patriots of the world.

    besides exit english, this song also happens to be featured on Fat Wreck's ROCK AGAINST BUSH Vol. 1. A great comp. indeed.

    That's so amazing, after all every war is a civil war of the world.

    General Commenti recently saw them in DC and they ended with this song, it was awsome because i wanted to hear it and then out of the silence was " LOOK HOW THE RUTS, CLING TO MY FOOTSTEPS". probably my favorite..

    General CommentThis song speaks against nationalism, and is akin to Anti-Flag's "No Borders, No Nations," another outstanding song. Strike Anywhere tries to show that as humans, it is our duty to place our loyalty to mankind as a whole above loyalty to any single government or nation. Absolutely outstanding.

    General Commenti think the lyrics are "until the last LOCK (not law) breaks none of us are free"

    and it also might be "injustice and hunger united" but that one i'm not too sure about
