Mittelmeerromantik

ach, war das ein drama
als die läuferin aus somalia
im mittelmeer ertrank

aber jetzt ist wieder
business as usual an der küste
die einen fahren gemütlich
in den urlaub nach süden
und die anderen ersaufen
beim versuch
ein bischen glück
im norden zu erhaschen

Mediterranean Sea romantics

Oh, what a tragedy
as the somalian runner
drowned in the Mediterranean Sea

But now we are
back to business as usual
at the coast
some take a
comfy holiday in the south
and others drown at the attempt
to catch some luck in the north

In 2012 the olympian runner Samia Yusuf Omar died in an attempt to cross the Mediterranean Sea. This individual case and the death of hundreds of refugees at Lampedusa gained some media coverage, but usually there’s not much protest against the deadly protection of the borders of the European nations against refugees. The front and back cover of this EP is a reflection of our own position as opponents of this border system and as owners of the “proper” passports.
