G8's got a meeting fortified up in the hills
Making lot's of promises they'll never fulfill
Claiming that they're working for the public will
Talking about making lots of changes
They're offering concessions, exploiting our demands
Knocking scraps off the table just to sit back on their hands
Changing names of policies to cover up the scams
Securing future profits and investments

Don't settle down til you get what you need
Don't settle down til you get what you need
They' always use some bait to tempt a movement to concede
Don't stop til you get what you need

Paper said they're gonna dump the debts over seas
Just like in the 80's with the SAPs
Terminating cultures with the terminator seeds
Just a bunch of Trojan horse shit
So up until the lawsuits are settled in the courts
They'll be fixing up their image in their annual reports
But the real plan they're drafting in this mountain resort
Is another 100 years of oppression

Don't settle down til you get what you need
Don't settle down til you get what you need
If they push through your picket line then try a blockade
Don't stop til you get what you need

The ocean tide is rising it's about to overflow
The trees are disappearing faster than they can re-grow
The ozone hole is bigger than it was 5 years ago
Corporation's pushing to the limit
There's toxins in the water from the river to the sink
Carcinogenic chemicals, dangerous to drink
The life-system combating unraveling
Reminding us we're fighting for survival

Don't settle down til you get what you need
Don't settle down til you get what you need
Climate's getting warmer and it's fueled by greed
Don't stop til you get what you need

More cash goes, less cash comes
The rich getting richer, the poor getting numb
History repeating playing re-runs The wages going downwards just don't seem to correspond
With the trickle down theories they base everything upon
It's a free-trade fantasy, a Neo-liberal-con
Just another excuse to make profits

Don't settle down til you get what you need
Don't settle down til you get what you need
Dump the bosses off your back and let the people take the lead
Don't stop til you get what you need

Don't settle down til you get what you need
Don't settle down til you get what you need
We're 6 billion strong, they're 8 weak
Don't stop til you get what you need
