Where are you coming from, where are you going to
Where are you coming from, where are you going to
Where are you coming from, where are you going to
Where are you coming from, where are you going to

Cross the water, looking for a new dawn
You know you're going to live and die, far from where you're born
You don't know where you're going to wind up, or in what state
But still you lay you're body down, on the wheel of fate

Where are you coming from, where are you going to…

Where you're going, there's people don't want you there
They say “Get back in your boat, and go back where
You came from in the first place, we don't like the look of your face
We're filling up here, and running out of space”

“All we're saying is, we've spent five hundred years,
Making our society how we want it, through a river of blood and tears
We're not getting into the blame thing, but you should go do the same thing
Why should we set you free, just because you want to come here”

Where are you coming from, where are you going to…

That's the headlines,we keep seeing
But I've got my view, and I'm not agreeing
There's another narrative here, one that doesn't propagate fear

Well the way I see it is, now the world's a very different place
Year upon year upon year, we're turning into a global human race
Now everybody's got a talent, it might be washing cars
Or saving somebody's life or making beautiful guitars

A country that doesn't get new blood, is going to fade away
And when we get old and we want our pension, well, it's them that's going to pay
I know everybody's got opinions, and very opposing views
But if they took such a risk to get here, now that's courage we could use

Where are you coming from, where are you going to…
