Lyrics by Invincible Prepare for take off Touch down Ben-Gurion Strict search make sure nobody enters with bombs Blue white flags For this Birthright Tour I’m on Never mention three villages that the airport is on Recent history buried But it speaks through the sand All Jews: Law of Return I don’t seem to understand "A land without a people for people without a land"? But I see a man standing with a key and a deed in his hand First stop: museum of the Holocaust Walkin' outside – in the distance – saw a ghost throwing a Molotov

Houses burnt with kerosene Mass graves Couldn’t bare the scene It wasn’t a pogrom–it was the ruins of Deir Yassin Next stop: shopping at the Kenyon Malcha Built it on the back of the town Al-Malha Wishing we could call it its name Uphauled by the change And now a mall full of chains Is all that remains HOOK: My Ima misses people not places Has she seen the towns with names in Arabic the Hebrew replaces?

With history we disconnect HOOK 200 year old olive trees Uprooted the groves To build a wall Now their future enclosed Settlements spreading like cancer and toxic sewage polluted the roads Now full of checkpoints I superimpose the truth and it shows Village ruins overgrown with planted trees Who’d have thought the "desert blooms" and Tu Bishvat I can't believe This ain't environmental Disguising lies, extincting lives like manatees Callin' it a transfer? Please– More like a catastrophe! Birthright tours recruiting 'em, confuse 'em into moving in Claim it's only names and words but denying the root of them Power been abusing it Our past never excusing them 60 years since '48 and 40 since Jerusalem My boy Shadi wanted to visit it so badly He lied he’s diabetic to see it for five seconds One Nine Four ruled the courts in the case Mom, you can’t disconnect a people from the importance of place HOOK
