about

A song written about the refugee crisis.

lyrics

What can we say to the one who can not speak back?
What can we say to the one who's life has lost track?
What can I say when I know nothing of this disgrace?
What can I say when I know nothing of this displace?

I know they're like me
Skin and bones
Heart and mind
Laughter and moans

I know they're like me
Skull and brains
Dreams of escape
Picture's framed

What can we say to the one's who hold all the power?
How do they live with themselves day in, hour by hour?
Dripping with guilt after taking the longest shower?
Turning their back's on the truth that needs to be scoured?

I know they're like me
Skull and brains
Dream of escape
Pictures framed

I know they're like me
Skin and bones
Heart and mind
Laughter and moans

When did we become native?
This is stolen land
When did we become native
A troubled misplaced clan

When did we become native?
This is stolen land
When did we become native
A troubled misplaced clan
