about

Seddik's Guitar we wrote after David's first visit in Israel and all the racist looks he felt towards him (because of him being black) and towards us as a mix raced couple which is very uncommon overthere. In the song we sing to an angel asking him why there is so much hatred out there and why can't we celebrate diversity rather then repress it.

lyrics

Seddik's Guitar (English translation below)

'אני איתך לא הולך'
לי אמרת בלי לגחך
'כי שם אותי ירדפו
ולא לדעת מה יחפשו'

אני איתך מסכימה
אך ליבי מלא בושה
איזה מקום לו לא אוכל לחזור
אלא אם כן מלאך יעזור

מלאך, אותך צריכים
מלאך, לך מחכים
שנאה גוברת שמה
כבר שנים, מלאך, למה?

מלאך, למה? מלאך, למה? מלאך, למה?

הדת שולטת ומתרבה
לכח אין גבול וחולשה
פולשים הביתה בלי מבוכה
ומנשלים את כל המשפחה

תרבות שונה מגיעה
אך אותה שמים בכליאה
שוברים חלון ובקבוקי תבערה
איזה פספוס של גיוון והעשרה

English translation:

‘I’m not coming with you’
You said to me without laughing
‘Because there I will be persecuted
And who knows what they may search for ‘

I agree with you
But my heart is full of shame
A place I wont be able to return to
Unless an angel will guide

Angel, we need you
Angel, we are waiting for you
Hatred increases over there
For years, Angel, why?

Angel, why? Angel, why? Angel, why?

Religion reigns and conquers all
The power has no limit and no weakness
Breaking in to a house with no shame
Exiling family

A different culture arrives
But you imprison it
Breaking windows, throwing Molotov cocktail
What a loss of diversity, what a loss of enrichment
