Don’t Fence Us Out

Tune: Don’t Fence Me In

There’s a new chain fence where the corporations meet

Don’t fence us out

The agenda is secret and governments seem weak ( 2  beats )

Don’t fence us out.

We’re asking why the secrets, why the stark abuse of power,

We’re wanting information and we’ll sit here by the hour,

Democracy demands that all of us get equal power,

Don’t fence us out.

Just let us in to discover and to question and to share,

Don’t keep us out by refusing and by using all the police that you dare.

Just let us in so that people can all participate

Profit, forcer and speed and greed all can wait

We won’t allow the FTA to seal our fate

Don’t fence us out.
