lyrics

And when she gets to the promised land,
over that golden gate
She will sell her body and join her brothers there,
on the sidewalk
In a California death knell,
spare change and cigarettes
Red pills, white lines, blue wine,
Pacific standard sunrise

And out there in the valley,
her slaves are picking grapes
And putting up our temples,
to multi colored gods

Americaj

By the river of Los Angeles,
there’s an ancient ritual going on
There’s a pyramid of skulls,
with dollar signs for eyes
An Aztec murder,
updated for our times
All too human,
just like human sacrifice

And tent cities arise,
fair trade, coffee chain
While the mansions on the coast,
keep reaching for the sky

reaching for the sky

Americaj,
the beautiful
Veiled and bound,
Americaj,
so graceful,
stoned and dead


Stop using your children
as cash machines
burying them alive under siege and servitude
the wave of humanity
awaits out on the streets
picnicking on the graves of the fallen

there’s a strange fire
on the western shore
where oil’s running low
trash, rags and silicone
shaky grounds for homes
bathing in nicotine
and breeding by telephone
but there’s still time
to turn this ship around
listen!

Americaj,
the beautiful
Veiled and bound,
Americaj,
majesty,
stoned and dead

Thomas Paine lies in a shallow grave
while liberty is flooded over
by icebergs and blood diamonds
and the smell of hope burning

a self styled poet carves epithets
into the arms of a throne

in Americaj
the Beautiful
in Americaj
Americaj

about

Behind The Sun Rehovot, Israel

Behind the Sun play the heavy music of the northern desert, a storm of sound cutting the wasteland to reveal ancient spirits and modern madness.
Behind the Sun was formed on the edges of Israel’s vast Negev desert. The music and lyrics on their debut album speak of their personal trials and tribulations living in this heavenly but harsh land.
