Asylum, asylum!

Behind the barbed wire
And stern soldiers with guns
Lies the great land of promise
Land of thousand suns

Where all beings are respected
And there’s shelter and food
Where they’re treated as equals
And the living is good

Land of better tomorrow
Land where people can flee
Just a matter of getting there
Soon they all will be free

Asylum, asylum!
The refugees smile
Now they’re out of danger
They can rest for a while

Yet the moment’s too brief
Soon the smiles fade away
For there isn’t a smile
To welcome their stay…

And their journey is not yet over
