about

Dedicated to the vulnerable ‘clandestines’ in Calais, France. Many of them are still underage, all of them are people like you and me; dreaming to be free from persecution, violence and poverty.

lyrics

Soil to Embrace

Running from the war on terror,
Attempting to flee sectarian and ethnic hatred.

Kids who’ve seen too much for one lifetime
escaped when death squads took their family
part of the spoils of war and being raped
traumatized by bloodshed and war crime

bridge:
Paid to embark on a treacherous odyssey
Thousands of miles through hostile lands
No rest for the wrecked
Wandering in search of soil to embrace

Soil to embrace

Now they are trapped, broke and hungry. Non-stop living in fear.
Casualties of moral cowardice.
Exhausted, no shelter from the cold and rain,
the stench of sickness and despair,
It is a miserable, feral existence.

chorus:
Victims of a war their government helped to unleash
Rejected, abandoned and adrift: how can they cope?
Victims of a world where authorities do as they please
Rejected, abandoned and adrift inside fortress Europe

Now they are trapped, broke and hungry. Non-stop living in fear.
Casualties of moral cowardice.
Exhausted, no shelter from the cold and rain,
the stench of sickness and despair,
It is a miserable, feral existence.

Bridge

Soil to embrace

Now they are trapped, broke and hungry. Non-stop living in fear.
Casualties of moral cowardice.
Returning home is no option, even though life here’s grim.
The truth is we all want a better life
