[intro]

F---- Bb- F--- Bb- F- C----
F---- Bb- F--- Bb- F- C----

[verse]

       F
We are lost
       Bb  F
We are homeless
          Bb       F            C
Doomed to sail forever on this stormy sea

        F
When we left here
           Bb     F
We gave up all we owned
Bb            F                C
Chased by the devil that stole our homes

[pre chorus]

           Bb
And we may never see
    Gm          Bb      F
The beauty of our land again
   Bb
No backward glance
               F
No history, no home, no claim
     C
Only shame

[chorus]

       F
We are old
       Bb  F
We are many
Bb             F            C
Crowded to the gunnels on a broken boat

        F
We seek food
        Bb    F
We seek shelter
        Bb    F           C
We seek arms around us to give us hope

[pre verse]

           Gm       Bb
But we may never find
                          F
A welcome on your foreign shore
            Bb
We know the odds are stacked against
                        F            C
The coloured, sick, the weak and poor

[verse]

            F
We could be you
             Bb   F
We share the same blood
             Bb         F
So why's our fate so different
        C
In this human flood?

       F
So you chase us
       Bb   F
You despise us
          Bb           F
Divide us up with your looks
         C
And your shallow words

[pre chorus]

         Bb
So we survive in limbo
   F
Or come to you illegally
       Bb
We may share the soil
            F
But we will never be unchained and free

            Bb
And when we disappear
       F
You'll never get to see us flee
          Bb
They will hide us from you
                F
Say it's for your liberty
          C
Your sanity

[chorus]

       F
We are lost
Bb       F
  we are homeless
Bb  F
Homeless
Bb  F
Hopeless
