Prison Bars and Battle Scars.

“Refusenik” si riferiva originariamente ai cittadini ebrei dei paesi del blocco sovietico cui veniva rifiutata l’autorizzazione ad emigrare in Israele. In seguito il termine è passato ad indicare i militari che per motivi politici, religiosi o morali rifiutano il servizio attivo in particolari circostanze o luoghi, come i soldati e i riservisti israeliani – meglio definiti come “sarvanim”, o “mishtamtim” o ancora “shministim” nel caso dei più giovani - che si rifiutano di servire nell'esercito israeliano nei Territori Occupati e/o nell’assedio di quella striscia di terra dimenticata da Dio a da Allah che è Gaza.

You say that you despise me
for laying down my gun
but i refuse to cross these borders
'cos they've not done anything wrong

Well it's here and it's now
these games you play just don't allow
for the freedom of your non-jewish sons
As you break these clouds
Descending where you've got no power
well I wash my hands of everything you've done

It's hard to defy the wisdom of the tribe
but in your heart you know they are wrong
And I choose that the lives of others mean as much as mine
As I bow my head to the dead in Palestine

Well I don't wanna fight
'cos what I fight for isn't right
I will not kill for money, land or God
I ashamed of this blame
that grew up through this killing game
We're not concerned with peace but spilling blood
