Hadag Nahash - Shir Nechama (שיר נחמה) (English translation)

English translation

Comfort Song

My taxes are buying ripples, and I see through them
My kids are pulling the triger and I am very proud
Cracks are opening in my walls, 
I just hope not to fall through them
Maybe my house needs examining, 
and maybe not
 
You can sit all day long
and babble about it
Sit all night long and chew on it and drink it
But why should I dive in 
and get depressed from it
It is better not to – because there is not soluntion to it
 
So what do we do? We are comforted 
Javing fun over a pot of cholent
Having a BBQ, 
drinking Deer Arak 
And singing 'it will be good', 
singing to not feel hungry, 
singing so we don't see there is nothing to sing about
Singing one more comfort song
 
Twirl me around with shekels*
Feed my with lies
And I am as a naive sheep –
still believing -One more time -
Comfort song
 
My representatives are following the crowd
I am giving them my vote again
I am damaging my kids,
hopefully not too much
The floor under my feet is shaking
I try not to fall 
Maybe my house needs examining, 
and maybe not
 
you can sit all day long, 
turn it around and examine it
Roll over all night long, 
lose sleep over it
Get totally worried, 
but that doesn't make any sense
It is better not to –
because there is not solution to it
 
so what do we do? We are comforted
We take lids off the pots
Take morals of our ministers
Take messeges off our songs 
And singing 'it will be good', 
singing to not feel hungry, 
singing so we don't see there is nothing to sing about
Singing one more comfort song
