Story behind the song
If you're gonna burn your bridges you might as well bomb them, too.
Two soldiers had been captured They’d crossed to the other side Two soldiers taken prisoner Several others died This is how it started So said the Jewish state Forget about ’96, ‘82 ’67, ‘48   Two soldiers taken hostage And by the Sea of Galilee We must defend our borders Wherever they may be We must defend our soldiers Wherever they’re deployed Two of them are captured One country is destroyed   Somewhere in Tel Aviv Generals drawing battle lines For the town where Jesus Turned water into wine On the ten-year anniversary Of a massacre of children They thought it was a good idea To massacre some children   Anyone in the south I heard Ehud Olmert say Everyone’s a target And may be killed today And if your home has turned to rubble It may be pulverized some more ‘Cause two soldiers have been captured And we gotta settle up the score A hundred thousand homes Levelled to the ground Every olive branch on offer Burned where it was found Every chance at dialogue Rejected right on cue If you’re gonna burn your bridges You might as well bomb them too   They even bombed the prison Where they used to torture fighters Where they had the dogs and leashes Cigarettes and lighters Where they were kept shackled Not allowed to stand Where they torched the forests Turned them into sand   Who’s the terrorist now?   And the entire world watches A few thousand demonstrate Governments take action All too little or too late All the telephones are ringing In case you couldn’t read the signs This is the IDF And you’re in the firing line   Condoleeza came to visit For about an hour She thought it was a party Some kind of baby shower She said these were the birth pangs Of a brand new morn But in the hospitals today All the babies were stillborn   The stars and stripes among the ruins Say where they were made In case anybody wonders About all that military aid In case anybody wonders About the mines around the farms Or why so many toddlers Are missing legs and arms   Or why so many of them ask Exactly what was meant By wiping out their homes And then sending them a tent Or why if you ask them Who is Nasrallah They’ll tell you he’s our leader And we all are Hezbollah
