about

A song about Palestine.

lyrics

Garden on the hill
Fences wrench the ground
Pale sun
Pale sun climbs
Old man mourns
Child lies dying
Pale sun
Pale sun Christ-like
Falling like angels and lying like lovers
Fighting like brothers
Blaming the other Falling like angels
and lying like lovers
Dying like brothers
Blaming the other
Wall stabs the sky
the sky passes by
Stars don’t bleed
They just quietly burn
and quietly die
in the blink of an eye
Garden on the hill
Stakes in the ground
Flowers, orchards and vines
Flags unfurl
Guns go quiet
Red sun, red sun Shines
An eye for an eye
A life for a life Pale sun,
pale sun Dies
