Staring at the border gun in hand. Humming the lyrics of my favorite band.
Praying for peace in this beautiful land.
Thinking why doesn't the world give the real enemy a reprimand?
Thinking why doesn't the world take a stand?
I pray for the day our only worry is getting tanned
Praying for the day terror will just be the name of a brand.
Thinking was this the way Israel's future truly planned?
But then I remember we are Jews and we tend to get the backhand.
A day our weapons can be left on the nightstand.
A day where being a jew living in Israel doesn't feel like doing something contraband.
God willing one day this will be just our land.
A land not covered in fences like a ghetto in Poland.
A land where we are finally safe and happy like a child in disneyland.
A land where our soldiers feel so at home that theirs no more need for Thailand.
A land where we can truly relax with our feet in the sand.
These are my dreams and I'm just a dude from Maryland.
Someone tell me, am I living in a dreamland?
