lyrics

BOMBS FOR DINNER
(An answer to David Rovics pro palestian songs)
This song is for Nava Appelbaum & her father.

----------

She came to our country / with the children so ill
to give them a break / a woman with a dream
She was madly in love / soon to be married
Back at home / she invited her dad
for some food and wine / in their favorite cafe
"dad" she said / "everythings so good"
Tomorrow i'll be his princess / and he'll be mine

Chorus
suddenly a blow and flashing lights
people screaming and death all around
The life of a woman
So innocent and sweet
Blown in pieces
on Jerusalems streets

It's easy to tell a story / and turn a blind eye
for what goes on / on the other side
but as in any war / there are victims everywhere
and their stories / need to be told somehow
it's not a nice song / this worlds gone wrong
Now i know the Jews / are only human too
beeing the chosen / doesn't make you flawless

Chorus
suddenly a blow and flashing lights
people screaming and death all around
The life of a woman
So innocent and sweet
Blown in pieces
on Jerusalems streets

Instead of the altar / he stood at the grave
his bride to be went down / to sink into our memory
she waits for / that ressurection day
a good soul lost / for the sake of revenge
she'll never be able / to lend her helping hands
the children she cared for / who do they turn to now?
is there a way / to make sense of this somehow?

Chorus
suddenly a blow and flashing lights
people screaming and death all around
The life of a woman
So innocent and sweet
Blown in pieces
on Jerusalems streets
