Lyrics

On a moonless night
On a dark boat
By a matches light
He wrote a short note

Someday Mother I swear we’ll be free
Not chained to the role of refugee

How the blood was running
From our home town
Every seed was falling
On the hard ground

Someday Mother I swear we’ll be free
Not chained to the role of refugee

Fled one battleground
Found another
Lost my left eye there
And my brother

Someday Mother I swear we’ll be free
Not chained to the role of refugee

We’re just human pawns
In a sick play
But believe my words
When I say

Someday Mother I swear we’ll be free
Not chained to the role of refugee

Seen their fishing nets
Entwined with white bone
Seen the tide turn red
Each wave a gravestone

Someday Mother I swear we’ll be free
Not chained to the role of refugee

Seen some sink before
Seen some make it
If I must stake my life
Then I’ll stake it

Someday Mother I swear we’ll be free
Not chained to the role of refugee

Water rising high
In the stairwell
Ink was fading fast
From his farewell

Someday Mother I swear we’ll be free
Not chained to the role of refugee

On a moonless night
Round about three
Not a thing in sight
On the dark sea.
