lyrics

I fled from my country when the bombs started falling
I came here as a lone refugee
I don't know what happened to my brothers and sisters
The only thing i could do was to flee

Is it fair?
Is it fair to my people
That we were hurt, we were killed, we were maimed?
We would go
Back if we only could
But there's nothing for us to reclaim

I see on the news it gets worse every day
And i know i will never go home
And i know i am one of the lucky ones but
I've never felt quite so alone

Is it fair?
Is it fair to my people
That we were hurt, we were killed, we were maimed?
We would go
Back if we only could
But there's nothing for us to reclaim
And our government escapes all the blame
And to foreigners we all look the same

I could be productive, I can work for my keep
But there's no work for foreigners, and my scars, they run deep
And the faces still haunt me, awake or asleep
And i'll never go home again
And our government escapes all the blame
And the U.N. treats this like a game
It's a shame
