A fleeing family finds itself once again in a jungle of laws and state repression. Their deportation is not only a shock for them but also for others in their neighbourhood.

Eine Familie findet sich nach ihrer Flucht im Dschungel von Gesetzen und staatlicher Repression wieder. Die Abschiebung aus ihrer neuen Heimat ist nicht nur für sie ein Schock.

Next door lived a family
As nice or not as yours and mine
They came a long path passing through hell
Found next door a place to stay

For a decade they stayed at this place
Went to work and went to school
But last night police destroyed their faith
“For the sake of the state”

My neighbours are gone
Kidnapped by the state
My neighbours are gone
They got no chance to escape

A blue flashing light
Broke through my dreams
Half asleep I had to see
How they led them one by one
Into the paddy wagon

My neighbours are gone
Kidnapped by the state
My neighbours are gone
They got no chance to escape

At four o’clock in the morning
The police knocked at their door
They got shocked without warning
Got caught by the law
They had to leave everything
Prepare their luggage within
Three quarters of an hour
Police abuses power

My neighbours are gone
Kidnapped by the state
My neighbours are gone
They got no chance to escape
