No one flag flies over the multi-national company.
No allegiance to the board's homeland, fellow citizens, the flag born of their country.
As the brainwashed nationalists move,
To shed their blood on battle fields.
War profiteering rich watch their stocks reap high yields.

We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.
We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.

GO!

No patriotic pledge from multi-national companies.
Only a commitment to lock away equality and steal away all freedom from the poorest of the poor.
So that the boardroom can insure
their stockholders profits are higher in return.

We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.
We're tearing down the borders!
We're fighting for the rights of freedom!
Woah oh, woah oh, woah oh.

It's our world.
Let's take it back!
Let's set ourselves free oh woah oh.
It's our world.
Let's take it back!
Let's set ourselves free oh woah oh.
It's our world.
We want it back!
Let's set ourselves free oh woah oh.
It's your world.
Take your world back!

Take it, fucking back.

There's a call
A ringing sound
Around the globe
Its gaining ground
We're tearing down the borders, oh oh.

There's a voice in your heart
It beckons you to do your part
We're tearing down the borders, oh oh!

The line is drawn
In the sand
On one side your a slave
The other a free man
We're tearing down the borders, oh oh!
There's a call
Freedom's sound
Around the globe
Its gaining ground!
We're tearing down the border
We're tearing down the border
We're tearing down the borders, WOAH!

    General Commentno one has posted this song? oh well i'll give it a shot. i guess its saying we have to put our differences aside, no matter what country we are from and unify as people. we are not americans, french, canadians. we are human beings.

    General CommentI think it's basically bashing corporate America. The fact that global companies survive because they're unbiased, very different from a lot of American companies. While a lot of global companies focus on delivering the best product possible, Americans produce goods for the highest price.

    General CommentThis song is is talking about about freedom. 'It's our world.Let's take it back!Let's set ourselves free oh woah oh.' 'Take it fucking back.' I think it's about the people in power(coporations, governments etc) taking away your people's liberty and he's talking about standing up and fighting for their given rights of freedom.

    General Commentits pretty self explanatory.
    anti-flag definitely opened my eyes to the fact that nationalism is a bad thing and that borders and nations are one of the main reasons for all the wars that happen.
