about

The lyrics are inspired by Esmo's visits to the refugees in 2012 who had set up camp in the middle of The Hague: Recht op Bestaan, and the camps set up in Ter Apel (2011) and Calais (2012).

REFUGEE
By de Introns

When you kissed your kids goodbyeTer Apel 29 nov
did they know that you cannot fly
A knock on the door the end
political doubt drove you out
So you crossed borders through countless lands
A trip around the world to one’s end
Touched by a hundred bare hands
Fucked up by people who you called friends

Exploited wasted
Nowhere to go
The unwashed the dark side
That’s all you know

What should I say to the refugee
squatting a tent in front of parliament
Why we’re not on the news he asks me
We’ve run from violence, war & poverty

But you don’t give a fuck
No you don’t give a fuck
