Your Playlist: Maximo Park

Looking for a new immigration tune to add to your playlist? Check out Risk to Exist by Maximo Park:

The song is pretty deep, focusing on immigration as the result of colonization:

Now I'm no expert but a cursory reading of the facts say you reap what you sow
And the expert colonises we begin, caused enough hurt to eat up the soul
And if we're proud of the things we have, shouldn't others want to share as well
Now the regimes that we propped up have descended into a living hell
Throw your arms around me
Before the waves all swallow me
I cannot breathe
Put your arms around me
I've come too far and the ocean's deep
Show some empathy

-KitJ
