Track Name: I Am Refugee
I am Refugee

On a train in 1939
A kinder-transportee
In ’45 we were millions
Displaced by war and poverty
I’ve been expelled from Uganda
Run out of Palestine
(My) brothers and sisters taken
Time after deadly time

(When) Your world comes crashing all around
I am refugee

Wars I never started
Leaders who wash their hands
Call us ‘swarms’ and ‘aliens’
Invaders fresh from foreign lands
But out there in there stadiums
They raise the welcome banner high
Cos you can’t turn back the clock
You can’t just close your eyes

On a train in 1939
A kinder-transportee
Some then they called it ‘outrage’
Aliens with no right to flee
