Refugee Camps at the European borders, especially Camp Moria on the Greek island of Lesvos, are hell on earth.
This unbearable situation inspired me to compose this track.

lyrics

The Camp

Now we’re alone
In this empty desert of our souls
Now we’re alone
Lost in a dirty island hole

All that I want
Is to see my daughter smile again
But now she’s so pale
In the bleaky corner of the tent

God is great but what’s his plan
To leave us here in misery?
I only want to save my child
No matter what they do to me

Does anyone remember us?
Is my anguish sacrifice?
Say, am I still strong enough?
Will anybody hear our cries?

There’s no way out
No hope, no sign and no relief
We’re all in hell
And in the end there’s only grief

God is great but what’s his plan
To leave us here in misery?
I only want to save my child
No matter what they do to me

Does anyone remember us?
Is my anguish sacrifice?
Say, am I still strong enough?
Will anybody hear our cries?
