boat
I came by boat to end my misery
But the government's tryna scapegoat me.
I've come from wars and poverty
Risking my life, hopin' to be free.

They put us on islands where mosquito breeds
We are put down by the powers that be
They start the wars that we're tryna escape
They bombed our homes then they shut the gate.

The companies go wherever they please
Exploiting workers and the profits they seize
But if I try to help my family
I'm branded illegal and they deport me.

They put us on islands where mosquito breeds
We are put down by the powers that be
They start the wars that we're tryna escape
They bombed our homes then they shut the gate..

The rich go 'round the world with luxuries
But if I try goin' overseas
The government cries “Borders please!”
And we remain as refugees

They put us on islands where mosquito breeds
We are put down by the powers that be
They start the wars that we're tryna escape
They bombed our homes then they shut the gate.

One day soon you will see
We'll do away with - country
Then we will, all be free
To join our brothers in harmony.

They put us on islands where mosquito breeds
We are put down by the powers that be
They start the wars that we're tryna escape
They bombed our homes then they shut the gate.

We'll open the gates and we'll all be free!
