Track Name: Shelter Folks
If i could gather all the tears on a planet i could fill the ocean
If i would gather all a bullits in a world i could build a mountain
if i should comfort - all the broken hearted i should live foreba
if i gave shelter to the homeless of the earth i better build a roof from Kingston to Addis Abeba

Come and become one of the shelter folks
Free the hungry and take the lame for a walk
(You'd better) mek dem not worry
Like a stable to a baby in an ancient story
Come and become one of the shelter folks

I and i is askin' ya: join the crusade against injustice
come on and break down a heartache hotel and vank the oppressor
movin' forward - improvin' a planet, it's a Babylon exodus
let's mek it happen, glory to Jah, peace on earth, it's a right vibe, it's a shelter folks modus

Come and become one of the shelter folks
Free the hungry and take the lame for a walk
(You'd better) mek dem not worry
Like a stable to a baby in an ancient story
Come and become one of the shelter folks

Where is a lionhearts?
where is a welcomin' man?
where is a Zionhearts?
where is a helping hands?
ya better get up and stand up
fo' sumone elses rights

Flee from Babylon, (from) Babylon flea
Mount Zion is a place to be
come come ya shelter folks
set the exile free!
Track Name: The Glorious Band Aid Choir
I saw Johnny Cash dressed like a Joseph
and his guitar was playin' loud.
There was a girl who looks like Mary;
June Carter Cash started to shout.
There was this choir with an archangel
movin' his hips from left to right,
wearing a suit as bling as Elvis'
singing this song of light

Listen up all you weary:
hide under wings of glory,
Join in with the stars of this story,
go find your voice in this glorious choir

Over there three kings gazing up yonder
foll'wing this bright shinin' Ringo Starr
In Strawberry fields they sung close harmony
I could hear them from afar
Four sheperds running like rolling stones
and they were humming this pow'rful song
and when I die I will still remember
'cause it's melody is so strong!

Listen up all you weary:
hide under wings of glory,
Join in with the stars of this story,
go find your voice in this glorious choir

War, eat your heart out,
your ugly heart out!
War, eat your heart out,
your ugly heart out!

Listen up all you weary:
hide under wings of glory,
Join in with the stars of this story,
go find your voice in this glorious choir
Track Name: A Wondrous Tree of Life will Sprout
a deafening silence reigned on earth
no hope was found, no hymn was heard
the broken-hearted could not sing
who will break down this soundless lingering?

this shady place, in need of light
our desperate hearts lost in the night
now hold your breath and cease your ways
the prince of peace will come and save the day

The Son of God came down from heaven above
He gave his all to become one of us
So look around and see his eyes
and meet the stranger who has saved your life

a wasted land, without a king
the ground was dry, the sky was dim
hollow eyes they watch the clouds
behold: a wondrous tree of life will sprout

The Son of God came down from heaven above
He gave his all to become one of us
So look around and see his eyes
and meet the stranger who has saved your life

The Son of God, the Son of Man
Prince of Peace, the Great I Am
Eternal Light, victorious stream
Oh Holy Child, (Thy name’s sweet gleam)

The Son of God came down from heaven above
He gave his all to become one of us
The Son of God, The Son of God, The Son of God
Track Name: Jesus was a Refugee
free the refugees!

an angel of the lord came to me, told me to flee
take your wife and take your kid to safety
then i woke up, I packed my bag up, starting to see
here's no future, here's no hope for the baby

over land and over sea
through the rain and misery
the overcrowded fishing boat
capsized when we were getting close

jesus was a refugee, just like me
but i'm stuck on christmas island
free the refugees!

just like joseph, just like mary we had to go
leave the country, leave the family and leave our home
they locked us up behind barbed wire because we tried
to save our kid from modern herods, to stay alive

over land and over sea
through the rain and misery
the overcrowded fishing boat
capsized when we were getting close

jesus was a refugee, just like me
but i'm stuck on christmas island
free the refugees!
Track Name: Sandalen
sandalen stuk gelopen
het zand prikt in mijn ogen
ik draag een koning in mijn buik
ik draag hem mijlenver van huis

dromen
wie ziet mij staan
stuk geslagen
wie kent mijn naam
mijn hoofd zit
waar moet ik heen
vol met vragen
blijf je wel bij me

wie is de vader van dit kind?
is dit het eind of het begin?

welkom zijn wij hier wel welkom
niemand hier die kent ons
is er ergens plaats
of zijn we soms te laat

deuren
wie ziet mij staan
dicht geslagen
wie kent mijn naam
we lopen
waar moet ik heen
nu al dagen
blijf je wel bij me

ik ga gebukt onder 't gewicht
ik draag de angst op mijn gezicht

welkom zijn we hier wel welkom
niemand hier die kent ons
is er ergens plaats
of zijn we soms te laat
Track Name: The Kid of Bethlehem
Be still and come a little closer
to the kid of Bethlehem.
He’s got the whole world in his hands.
We are nothing without him.

He is the shape of life to come. The air that fills our lungs.
No better place than at his feet. No greater gift than this.

His word will stand the test of time. His death will bring us life.
Where we fall short, he will be strong, until the kingdom comes.

His light will overcome the dark. His peace will rule our hearts.
The shepherd who became a sheep. His love drives out all fear.

Be still and come a little closer to the kid of Bethlehem.
The centre of the universe. The saviour of the world.
Track Name: Kamp Zeist
Ik ga binnen door de poorten,
laat achter al mijn geld,
mijn sleutels en mijn paspoort
en wat me is verteld.
Ik ga zitten aan de tafel
die me aangewezen wordt
en kijk naar de gezichten
hier binnen de poort.

De weken werden maanden.
Ik leef hier bij de dag.
Je hangt aan je gewichten.
Zo vlucht je voor de nacht.
Ik zie de schaduw in je ogen
van wat je overkwam.
Maar de brokken van jouw leven
zijn niet welkom in dit land.

Jij fluistert vol vertrouwen:
“I’m locked up but I’m free.”
Maar ik wil niet meer naar buiten
nu ik jou hier heb gezien.
Jij ziet mijn stille woede
en hoe alles brandt in mij.
Je kruipt in mijn gedachten
en we springen overeind.

We lopen door de poorten,
zonder paspoort, zonder geld.
Onzichtbaar en vergeten.
zoals ooit is verteld en
we rennen langs de muren
onze stemmen staan in brand.
We juichen en we schreeuwen,
we waaien en we sneeuwen.

We lopen er zevenmaal omheen,
tot de muur valt.
We lopen we zevenmaal omheen,
tot de muur valt.
Track Name: Hommage à un Réfugié
