English Translation & Dutch Lyrics:

[English translation]
OUTLAWED
outlawed in camps
seeking refugee from the war
scared, exhausted
fearful of every rumor
about new disasters
the occupier and his brutal rule
waiting for peace
in the cold outside

behind the fires the long day darkens
the hours slide in the black night
a path of star gravel lightens up
are you going back home human child?

outlawed in camps
seeking refugee from the war
muddling in tents
squatting near the sick
without money and food
standing in line with a sigh
waiting for peace
in the cold outside

behind the fires the long day darkens
the hours slide in the black night
a path of star gravel lightens up
are you going back home human child?

where you were born, to which god you pray
when all is lost, it's this you will find:
a helping hand is stronger than a fist
why is our world not a bigger home?

[Dutch lyrics]
VOGELVRIJ
vogelvrij, in kampen
voor de oorlog op de vlucht
kopschuw, moegestreden
beducht voor elk gerucht
over nieuwe rampen
de bezetter en de tucht
wachtend op de vrede
in de koude buitenlucht

achter de vuren dimt de lange dag
glijden de uren in de zwarte nacht
licht er een pad op van sterrengrind
ga je naar huis terug mensenkind?

vogelvrij, in kampen
voor de oorlog op de vlucht
modderend in tenten
bij de zieken neergehurkt
zonder geld en eten
in de rij staand met een zucht
wachtend op de vrede
in de koude buitenlucht

achter de vuren dimt de lange dag
glijden de uren in de zwarte nacht
licht er een pad op van sterrengrind
ga je naar huis terug mensenkind?

waar je bent geboren, tot welke god je bidt
als alles is verloren, vind je enkel dit:
een helpende hand is sterker dan een vuist
waarom is de wereld geen groter thuis’
