Foreign Land



Verse 1
The world it sits and watch them die!
What is the price of human life?
No escape the soldiers cry!
Hope is all, so still they try.

Chorus
Why is leaving such a crime against the state?
Surely they must see, that this is a mistake?
People risking all to leave their mother land,
Fleeing to a foreign land.

Verse 2
A crowd they gather in the streets,
the government call out the police.
All these people they protest.
The government call the soldiers next.

Chorus 2
Why can't the people be alowed to speak their mind?
Why do the governments refuse to give them rights?
Oh I feel angry, its a waste of human life,
I see the people die.

Verse 3 
I met a boy from Vietnam,
he said we just don't understand.
He was in prison at the age of four,
declared a trator to the state

Chorus
Why is leaving such a crime against the state?
Surely they must see, that this is a mistake?
People risking all to leave their mother land,
Fleeing to a foreign land.
