otah haru'ach shelocheshet bekirbam.

Az hineh shuv magi'a...


How is it that one's preserved
and the other is confused
and they live in the same street
and they share the same alley
it always exists
and it disappears in another
and not yet, it does not stop
and it always returns to the same place

So here it comes again
here one falls silent again
and the second appears
in a second it disappears
so look inside
let's see that it exists
fasten your seatbelts
because we're taking off from here again

And how is it that one always says
and the other contradicts
whatever he has to say
and it's the fear that witnesses
that which is in this difference of opinions
and it's certain, no longer a secret
and they already pronounce judgements
about it for years
and the centra issue is not to agree

So here it comes again...

And how is it that one prays
and the other makes statues
makes a statue of his figure in stone
and he's sure that all that exists is his
there will always come that wave
that will wash them away
to the same place that the two will go to
the same wind that whispers in their midst.

So here it comes again...
