The Road To Germany is written and sung by the band’s bouzouki player Stuart Graham. The lyrics tell a sadly-familiar tale of a young Syrian refugee from the town of Kobane on a dangerous journey to the refugee camps of Iraqi Kurdistan and onwards to Europe. Stuart was inspired to write the song after living in Iraq and then returning to the UK just as Europe's "refugee crisis" - perhaps better-termed a "refuge crisis" - was making the headlines across the world.
