No Refuge

We hoped the smoke would clear when we arrived here
a fresh start without the death part
with freedom’s screams still ringing in our ears

We swapped the bombs for blockades
How can we take a hand out with [our] hands raised?

We braved the seas for a sliver of peace
packed in boats like human sardines
(No matter if we fight or flee)
No matter if we fight or flee
Wherever we go, there is little humanity
When we arrived, yeah we thought this would be the end
to the fight for our rights
We thought our lives might finally thrive

(We can’t go home. There’s nowhere to go.)
We were only lambasted, now we’re being outcasted
(We can’t go home and so, we roam.)
We were only lambasted, now we’re being outcasted

O’er these foreign fields we roam
Just to be told to fuck off home
“This really isn’t against you but sadly we haven’t got the room.”

Police are meant to be keeping the peace…
What’s subliminal about treating innocents like criminals?
