lyrics

Sneaking onto ships at night
Making an escape
They crossed to America
Hoping to be saved
When the Land of Liberty
Turned them all away
Sunlight bright as broken glass
Glittered on the waves
I used to soothe myself
By saying, “never again”
But it takes more than praying
To make a pattern end

Never again
And again
And again
Never again
And again
And again
Never again
And again
And again

Listen for somebody’s boot
Breaking down a door
Listen for a sunburned child
Praying for the shore
Planes are taking refugees
Back into the war
And we fuel the engines
That we choose to ignore
Relatives are missing
From my small family
My country met my ancestors
Sent them back to sea

Never again
And again
And again
Never again
And again
And again
Never again
And again
And again
Never again
And again
And again
Never again
And again
And again

I used to soothe myself
By saying, “never again”
But it takes more than praying
To make a pattern end
