lyrics

Refugee Express

I've navigated deserts and negotiated oceans
Gratifying traffickers for deadly locomotion
Don't misunderstand this I never planned this
Life was sweet with my wife and my family

It's driving me crazy
Where is my baby
Spend every day praying
That you'll find me

Two days locked away buried in a cargo bay
Clinging to my little girl - making out it's all ok
Hours in the water - driftwood slaughter
Watched her drown when the boat went down

The words you feed betray your greed

Can't stop loving you
Don't let go
You fill my heart you light my soul
Still so many miles to go
Never surrender
Can't stop loving you
Don't let go
You light you're heart you fill my soul
Still so many miles to go
It's driving me crazy
Where is my baby
Spend every day praying
That you'll find me

I'll show you coffins and cadavers in the water
Play me violins while I weep for my daughter
Face down back down
Mankind broken down
Razor wire clamp down
Living in a countdown

It's driving me crazy
Where is my baby
Spend every day praying
That you'll find me

Exiled aliens
Human and mammalian
Emigrant castaways
Save it for a rainy day
Lepers cheats prodigals
Filling up your hospitals
Spreading like a norovirus
Must be pathological

The more you feed the more we breed

Can't stop loving you
Don't let go
You fill my heart you light my soul
Still so many miles to go
Never surrender
Can't stop loving you
Don't let go
You light you're heart you fill my soul
Still so many miles to go
It's driving me crazy
Where is my baby
Spend every day praying
That you'll find me

Emigre runaway
Seeking out a better day
Ain't no man of prey
Praying don't work anyway

Where's the love-Where's the love

Outlaw Fugitive
Emerging from the punitive
I just want to give
Don't give a damn about the lucrative

Where's the love-Where's the love

Displaced defector
Political objector
I'm in need of a protector
Not a funeral director

Find the love-Find the love

Refugee foreigner
Tortured by conspirators
Displaced no state
Didn't want to emigrate

Find the love-Find the love

Empty exhausted
All alone and taunted
Grieving feeling
Terrified and haunted

Share the love-Share the love

Tear gassed jeered at
Ridiculed and sneered at
It's a game human chess
On the refugee express

Share the love-Share the love

The wars you feed are why we bleed guaranteed
The wars you feed are why we bleed
