Stranded In Water
Forced into the rubberboats by evil men with voices like thunder
After all the hardships in the desert sand didn't make them go under
To get across the river and make the unknown land
But they didn't see the other side, they didn't understand

Watch them floating at the mercy of the waves
Packed together, one after another
Does it really matter if they would be saved
Or getting lost and stranded in water


Drifting about in immensity, feeling small, and left to their own devices
Anxious faces always on the look out for some hope on the horizon
Hope for the green light, shining in the air
Hope for meeting happy faces, glad to see them there

Watch them floating at the mercy of the waves
Packed together, one after another
Does it really matter if they would be saved
Or getting lost and stranded in water


Did they hear any of the sad way, the world is put in order
Did they ever think of the barriers at the rich countries' borders
To keep them from coming, finding slamming doors
And keep the lap of luxury away from the poor

Watch them floating at the mercy of the waves
Packed together, one after another
Does it bloody matter if they would be saved
Or getting lost and stranded in water
