lyrics

don’t want a birthright as colonizer
unoccupied as sympathizer
I remove my two eyes
and set ‘em in a two state solution
to soak eye contact
(eye contact)

the Chickasaw shiksa
fiddles on the roof of her mouth
a yenta eats polenta
in the global south

I fumigate the mishegas
on 20 inch Michelins
on the Columbus route
10-East, sans yeast
unleavened

shouts out to the power of god bombing
the comedy club in heaven
when faces express like a true Levinas

don’t want a birthright as colonizer
unoccupied as sympathizer
I remove my two eyes
and set ‘em in a two state solution
to soak eye contact

testament to a circus tent
the schmendricks levy
service complaints
for a dearth of challah

well, holla
to decades wandering the desert
evicting into choice karma
like a two state solution
to soak eye contact

baruch atah adonai
pass the peace to the minister
who got eyes low and lukewarm
a Jerusalem blue

holla
to decades wandering the desert
evicting into choice karma
like a two state—
ok, well

watch for the growing few who
substitute the war flutes into Klezmer music
as instruments of foreign aid
sustaining right to left Hebrew
to center what is Jewish
let it not fall in line to be hubris

don’t want a birthright as colonizer
unoccupied as sympathizer
I remove my two eyes
and set ‘em in a two state solution
to soak eye contact
(eye contact)

don’t wanna be your colonizer
unoccupied as sympathizer
I remove my two eyes
and set ‘em in a two state solution
to soak eye contact
(eye contact)

holla
to decades wandering the desert
evicting into choice karma
like a two state solution
to soak eye contact
eye contact
eye contact
eye contact
