If they’re seeking "asylum" here, they’ve obviously come to the right place. Sing along with Stafford against the xenophobic madness. Thanks to our mate (and guitar legend) Colin Watson for a nice pre-mastering job.


Knock, knock! Is there anybody home? / I’m waiting on your doorstep, so tired and alone

I have run through the fire, and braved the stormy sea

Lost home and friends and family, to change my destiny

Now I stand at the shore of a new world / Put your hand to the door, turn the key

I am one in your millions / I have come so far to be free

I am the voice in every wilderness / Crying, For mercy’s sake help me… Refugee

You have a green and golden land / The sun of boundless fortune lights up your shining sand

and they say that your people are quick to understand

and when someone’s in trouble, you’ll lend a friendly hand

So what’s this I hear about "security"? / What could you have to fear from me?

I am one in your millions… / For mercy’s sake help me, a lonely refugee…
