The other side of the coin, the migrant, who wants him, her or the child?

Language English Era 2000 and later


He lost his kids, he lost his wife
A refugee in a time of war and strife
He travels on, nothing to eat
No belongings, old sandals on his feet

Who needs a migrant?
Who wants the migrant?
Who needs a migrant?
Who loves the migrant?

He makes his way to the shore
Overcrowded boat, more you can't ask for
Where there is want there's human vice
He has to pay, not once but thrice

No point in going home
And so I live to roam

On a choppy sea with a stormy sky
A crowded boat is no place to die
He prays to his God, "If we go down
Forgive my sins in case I drown!"
