Siouxsie and the Banshees – Israel (Album Version)


in Israel Israel…

But their song is jealousy

To thaw your hearts in wintertime
The sweet taste in your mouth — turned bitter in its glass
Little orphans in the snow
in Israel Israel…
in Israel Israel…
With nowhere to call a home

Their hate is clanging — maddening
There’s a man who’s looking in
That’s why they’re singing
Keep your heart alive with a song from inside

Meet in veins on the stained glass
Even though we’re all alone
Waiting through the summertime
Now hidden in disguise — cheap wrappings of lies
We are never on our own when we’re singing
And he smiles a toothless grin
Waiting for a sign to turn blood into wine
will they sing Happy Noel In Israel…
In Israel will they sing Happy Noel
Start their singing
Of a long forgotten dream
Shattered fragments of the past
Because he’s singing
There were princes and there were kings
Israel… in Israel
Red and green reflects the scene
Like the lifeline in your palm
See some people shine with glee
