Ahmed: una canzone dedicata a chi attraversa il mare

The sea, the sea, the sea, it holds our secrets (holds our secrets)
The sea, the sea, the sea, it holds his soul (holds his soul)
They call him Ahmed
The sea, the sea, the sea, it holds our secrets (holds our secrets)
The sea, the sea, the sea, it holds his soul (holds his soul)
They call him AhmedThey say let him drown, let him drown, let him drown
What have you done, don’t let him drown, don’t let him drown
No what have we become, don’t let him drown
No, don’t let him drown
And they say
Let him drown, let him drown, let him drown
What have we done, don’t let him drown, don’t let him drown
No, what have we become, don’t let him drown
Please, don’t let him drownAhmed could’ve been you, and Ahmed could’ve been me
We need to understand the policies that put him in the sea
We need to understand why it is the beach is full of dying kids
A colonial Metropole people want to reside in
If he did would he make it or fall to something that’s deeper
End up like Jimmy Mubenga or Khaled Abu Zarifa
A picture by Javier Bauluz on the beaches of Tarifa
Made me see, some would grieve more if Ahmed was a creature
With four legs, then they would consider him legitimate
Those like him braving barbed wire burning off their finger tips
Balfours alien act, that mentality still exists
Is privilege the difference between an ex-pat and an immigrant?
For Ama Sumani and Osman Rasul Mohamed,
when you take others humanity,
it’s only yours that’s stunted, not a swarm
They’re our sisters and brothers, that’s the sum of it
The cockroaches here are in the media and the government
Not the seaThe sea, the sea, it holds our secrets (holds our secrets)
The sea, the sea, the sea, it holds his soul (holds his soul)
They call him Ahmed
The sea, the sea, the sea, it holds our secrets (holds our secrets)
The sea, the sea, the sea, it holds his soul (holds his soul)
They call him AhmedAhmed never knew the politicians he was murdered by
Ahmed never knew the politicians he was murdered by
Ahmed never knew the politicians he was murdered by
And they all laugh at him…
