about

Wha-Eh is about the journey of the African refugees (mainly from Sudan and Eritrea) who walks through the desert to reach to Israel. Unfortunately in Israel they are detained, without trial for unlimited time...

lyrics

Wha-Eh (English Translation)

הם הגיעו מהמרחקים
עברו במדבר, בשחקים
זוועות הם ראו, עינויים הם חוו
אך לחזור אין לאן וללכת היכן

מי שלא נחטף
ואת הגבול חצה
גם שם לא תגיע הישועה
מתקן כליאה יהיה לבית חדש
לישון ברחוב, כן זה המצב

בלי מעמד ובלי עתיד
אין אוכל, אין זכות
דבר להגיד
שנאה גוברת ואלימות
גזענות כזו אי אפשר להאמין!

Wha-Eh (English Translation)

They came from a distance
Journeyed through the desert and the heavens
Horrors, they’ve seen
Torture they’ve experienced
But there is no place to return to, nowhere to go

Those who have not been abducted
And crossed the border
Redemption won’t meet them there
Detention centers their new home
Sleeping in the streets, is their reality

With no status and future
No food, no right -
To say a single thing
Hatred increasing and so is violence
Such racism, it's unbelievable!
