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 battlefields

War profiteering rich watch their stock reap high yields

We're tearing down the borders
We're fighting for the rights of freedom, woah, woah, woah
We're fighting for the rights of freedom, woah, woah, woah

No patriotic pledge from multinational companies
Only a commitment to lock away equality and steal away all freedom from the
Poorest of the poor, so that the boardoom can insure
Their stockholders profits are higher in return

We're tearing down the borders
We're fighting for the rights of freedom, woah, woah, woah
We're fighting for the rights of freedom, woah, woah, woah

It's our world, lets take it back (Lets set ourselves free, woah)
It's our world, lets take it back (Lets set ourselves free, woah)
It's our world, we want it back! (Lets set ourselves free, woah)
It's your world, take your world back

Take it fucking back

There's a call, a ringing sound
Around the globe, It's gaining ground
We're tearing down the boarders

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

The line is drawn, in the sand
On one side, you're a slave - the other, a free man
We're tearing down the boarders

There's a call, freedom's sound
Around the globe, it's gaining ground
We're tearing down the boarder

    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.
