lyrics

T.P.P.A

Rise to the street, defeat the T.P.P.A
the corporate takeover best move out the way
Nowhere to hide I did not come here to play
people round the world won’t you sing with me

wont you stand and sing with me now.

Rise to the street, defeat the T.P.P.A
the corporate takeover best move out the way
Nowhere to hide I did not come here to play
people round the world with the power at my back we take it from the street!

Now what we’re looking at is an international treaty
With negative impact for the ordinary kiwi
Disguised as an agreement for free trade
Allowing overseas business to get paid

As they sue our own government behind closed doors
They sue out own government behind close doors
In a shady international tribune
But never mind that just shut up and consume!

While the bourgeois control your tv screen?
While the bourgeois control your tv screen?

A battle cry to bring forth life, set ourselves free
Breakin’ away from the chains, of the greed and apathy
Authoritarian society has got me on my knees
A false economy based on wants not needs

We’re trading up our freedom for security
Well I’m burning with the question, when are we going to listen?
To the guidance we’ve been given but we keep on taking
When the ground beneath us shakes from the earthquakes.

Stand up got to rise up now
Take to the streets and shut them down.

T.P.P.A taking the peoples power away

We’ll stand side by side on the police line
Direct action counters the media’s lies
So raise your fist up and get down

Well there aint’ no power like the power of the people
Co’s the power of the people don’t stop!
