I Watched the Temple Fall – The Shondes (tears…)

about being Jews resisting the occupation of Palestine.

The lyrics
This year a fast of witness
I long and crave but with this
Long to know what longing’s for

(I know this is a time thick with dying)

Remembering temples falling
I watched the wall ascending
(The names and places are erased, replaced)
I watched cities consume cities
(Killing history)

(And yet today my people are mourning)
With each village they’re erasing
I’ll witness them replacing it
With new walls in new tongues
(An endless, timeless span of tragedy)
