A brand new history
Slyly and quickly
Sparkles in your eyes
Hope your not missing
The flash points/sign posts
Etching the future
From here

Ancient ancestors transmitting via pool formed from rainfall
Where my reflection stares back at me and says
As the sun sets bright over ancient earth and disappears from view
The spirit of the world will rise up from the dis again
Our voices sing in union
Lifless, soulless, secret abyss
Plotting the worlds doom
Production and consumption wakes the sleeping world to sing again
Our voices sing in union

From african coasts to australian mainland
Watch your brothers back, watch your sisters back
From the american plains to the sea of japan
Watch your brothers back, watch your sisters back
In your own backyard, or far off foreign lands
We find our adversaries woven of the same thread

As evil hacks and rips at every corner of the world
The peoples voice will sing as one voice
Our voices sing in union
To implement a Paul Hawken-Esque model for the world
The people voice will sing as one voice
Our voices sing in union

The Arabian sea to the coast of chile
Watch your brothers back, watch your sisters back
The plateau of tibet to the bay of biscay
Watch your brothers back, watch your sisters back
In your own backyard, or far off foreign lands
We find our adversaries woven of the same thread

Rethink... Fucking dig in!

Don't sit there and take it!
They built it we can break it!
We're not gonna stand for any G.A. double T's!!!

Don't sit there and take it!
They built it we can break it!
We're not gonna stand for any G.A. double T's!!!

Don't sit there and take it!
They built it we can break it!
We're not gonna stand for any G.A. double T's!!!

Don't sit there and take it!
They built it we can break it!
We're not gonna stand for any G.A. double T's!!!

    General CommentI love this song! I imagine it represents that the earth is a magical place and by mass consumption and the creation of big corporations, we are destroying the spirits that live here. I also think it means that we all have to pull together and help each other survive, whether we're fighting some punk who lives down the street, or a group of terrorists. When we can all realize that we don't need material possesions or industry, then the spirits of the earth can truly be free.

    General CommentThis song makes explicit reference to two things. First, the General Agreement on Trade and Tarriffs (Google that for some info on how your government is selling you into wage slavery to the corporations) and the London Underground (the subway)- when the train stops, there's a space between the train and the platform, and if you're careless, you can get stuck or even fall through. To remind people to be, well, mindful, a recorded voice is played that says "Mind the gap."

    Although seriously... when a polipunk band uses a proper noun you don't recognise, GOOGLE.

    General CommentI concur. My favorite song from this album. Very powerful and not cheesey like some of their other songs. Catchy as all hell. Interested in this topic? Research Lee Kyung-Hae and the book referenced in their new CD "Confessions of an Economic Hit Man." You can also google "Anti-Globalization"
