lyrics

In my suit and polkadot tie
'Neath the star of David,
How ashamed I was not to cry,
Like we weren't related.

Such is life, the life we know,
Nestled in the undertow:

We float in the waves
Of the sea time forgave,
And I'm not afraid.
I'm not afraid;

I count the days
By the stones on their graves.

אני לא מבין‎ יהוה [God, I don't understand]
Thought I had much longer
With them here to see and be seen;
Has it all been squandered?

Many gifts are wrapped in shame.
In the end, we're all the same:
Trapped in the frame
(The perpetual game);
When the debts are reclaimed,
They forget your first name.
There is no one to blame.
There is no one to blame.

ברוך אתה ה' אלהינו [Blessed are You, Lord our God]

Blessed are they who will count every day.
