lyrics

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!
