Seattle Was A Riot lyrics

Wizo

Why must we riot?
Why must we protest
Just to be heard by the world?

Seattle was a riot
They tried to pin on us
But we didn't show up
With gas and billy clubs
An un-armed mass of thousands
Just trying to be heard
But there are no world leaders
That want to hear our words
Ohhh

Why must we riot?
Why must we protest
Just to be heard by the world?
Why must we riot?
Why must we protest
Just to be heard by the world?

The World Bank's greed and lies
Digs graves in 3rd-world lands
And fills them with the remains
Of exploited workers
Or displaced native peoples
Or destroyed ecosystems
Under the guise of progress
Relief, and tech assistance
Ohhh

Why must we riot?
Why must we protest
Just to be heard by the world?
Why must we riot?
Why must we protest
Just to be heard by the world?

Since the dawn of history
The few who own control
Have bent and rewrote history
How they want it to go
They try to control what we learn
And take away our rights
'Cause when the masses round the world unite
That's a force they cannot fight
Cannot fight

We'll fight for our
We'll fight for our
We'll fight for our
We'll fight for our
Rights!

Why must we riot?
Why must we protest
Just to be heard by the world?
Why must we riot?
Why must we protest
Just to be heard by the world?

Sitting in what was designated the "Cooperation Zone" by Seattle Police Sergeant Richard Goldstein
They sat heads bowed
Listening as the police methodically shot pepper spray
One eye at a time
Into the eyes of their passive brothers and sisters
Whore-like police
Playing judge, jury, and executioner for their pimp-like bosses in the World Bank
And W.T.O
This is not justice. This is not the role of
The Servants of the People
Such tyranny brings ruling classes crashing to the ground and contemporary societies to an end
