This Country

beaten down       
on the ground 
is there somewhere safe around here? 
I'm held back 
catching flak 
just for the clothes that I wear 

there is no place in this country 
that we could ever call our home 
we  don't belong in this country 
we want somewhere of our own 

a life of crime 
on their minds 
can't they see that there is another way? 
straighten up 
don't live rough 
it's much harder to do than it is to say 

there is no place in this country 
that we could ever call our home 
we  don't belong in this country 
we want somewhere of our own 

and I wandered around for days   
seeing where I could fit in 
looked and looked for a way ahead 
but I just don't know where to begin 
I just don't know where to begin 

there is no place in this country 
that we could ever call our home 
we  don't belong in this country 
we want somewhere of our own
