Track Name: Wish luck star
Mama said: dear child rest now,
rest in peace in my two arms.
lift your head up and send your hand up,
to pick up one wish luck star.

And the child listened mama's voice,
and lift his hand as high as he could.
But he didn't believe enough in wish luck stars,
so he managed to grab a sorcerer instead.

And the sorcerer said: dear child trust me,
trust with all your heart believes.
And the child listened those women's voices,
and said i'll do what i was told.
So he jumped high and grab on one wish luck star.

Mama said: dear child rest now,
rest in peace in my two arms.
Lift your head up and send your hand up
to pick up one wish luck star.

And the child listened mama's voice,
and lift his hand as high as high as he could.
Then he believed enough in wish luck stars,
so he managed to grab the wish luck itself.

And the wish luck star said: child sleep now,
close your eyes and dream in calm.
And the child listened to the wish luck voice,
and said I'll do what i was told
So he breathed deeply and fell asleep.
Track Name: We're done - May 21
Fighting over torches
that are not even your own.
it seems that they hate you
Because your fear is to be alone
we're done - may 21
Oh we're done

There is no choice you say
we have got to bombe their ground
even if some children are caught
in the middle of the crowd
we're done - may 21
Oh we're done

Who am i to judge you?
I don't even know your name
But I can't helped but wondering what will remain?
we're done - may 21
Oh we're done

Some say there is a way
They have the solution, they would not mislay
A sense of betrayal is making an affray,
Manipulation has won, we're done.
Track Name: Im tamouti
Translation:
If you die

If you die, what would i feel,
what would i feel, what would i feel
To never see your face in broad daylight, in broad daylight.
I will no longer hear your voice in a deep quarrel, in a deep quarrel.
We will surely meet again in a sweeter dream.
What will become of your depression? The madness of your heart
And as I compose your song
like a magician who knows her name is called
you appear on the screen at the same moment.
Track Name: Zman
Translation:

Time

Lend me some time,
Please, no compensation
A time when I assure you
Only a little time

Lend me some time,
Without remorse, without question
Do all that is good to think
Only a little time
Track Name: Tfila / Ben Azra
Translation:
You are like a flower

You're so lovely as a flower,
So pure and fair to see;
I look at you, and sadness
Comes stealing over me.

I feel I should be laying
My hands upon your hair,
Praying that god may preserve you
So pure and smart and fair.

The Asra

Every day so lovely, shining,
up and down, the Sultan’s daughter
walked at evening by the water,
where the white fountain splashes.

Every day the young slave stood
by the water, in the evening,
where the white fountain splashes,
each day growing pale and paler.
Track Name: A wise man
I can't stand you, you bug me all the time.
For you i won't surrender, never again like the last time.
No, you cannot touch me, you don't know how to behave.
For you are not a wise man, as you pretend.

I didn't tell you at the time, that was wrong.
I must respect myself more often, that would keep me strong.
But you didn't like me, because i dared to answer
to your misleading, non sense lecture.
No, you cannot touch me, you don't know how to behave.
For you are not a wise man, as you pretend.

I'm learning to claim my well being.
Others may say life's a dreaming.
We are just passing through, nothing to say, nothing to do.

Now, listen man and girls: Vacation is no game.
If you just want to relax, don't hesitate to complain.
It is never enough, you've got to stay alert.
You have to realize, what this feelings may cost.
And yet, you cannot touch me, you don't know how to behave.
For you are not a wise man as you pretend.
Track Name: The other strangers
Translation:

The other strangers

I see you every night
I cannot and will not sleep.
Darkness closes over me
I fall asleep with daylight hours
Do you exist?
Or is it I that is not here?
I am drowning amongst demons
I do not understand what they are looking for
Keeping my distance, do not want any contact
I almost never sleep
I do not know if I am crazy
Reality or fantasy
Older or younger
I have been living the same story for twenty years
