  1. Land Of Milk And Honey

Lyrics


LAND OF MILK AND HONEY

The land of milk and honey
Is bittersweet
The taste of blood and berries on my bitten tongue
As I wander ancient streets

I am a stranger
In a strange place where everything is so familiar
It’s been so long since I’ve seen these faces
That look like mine but I don’t belong

In the land of milk and honey
Nothing is as it seems
War overlooks fields of wildflowers
Peace is buried in dreams

Every mother loves her sons and daughters
On whichever side she stands
But hate runs deep like hidden water
Flowing underneath the desert sand

Eretz zavat chalav, chalav u’dvash
Eretz zavat chalav, chalav u’dvash
2X

The land of milk and honey
Is filled with promise and fear
I ride the bus from the mountains to the sea
And wonder why I’m here

There’s a soldier sleeping next to me
With a gun across his shoulder
The sun shines on his face
As we pass olive trees and barbed wire

Eretz zavat chalav
Chalav u’dvash
2X
