From the recording Open the Gate / ouvre la porte

Lyrics and music by Lenka Lichtenberg.


Line in the sand
line through the land
a ray of hope or sliding slope
of broken dreams?
Line in the sand
cuts through the land
pieces, pieces…or peace?

Walls seldom bring
the elusive answer
until they come
tumbling down

Faintly obvious
each story has two sides
who cares to try on
the other’s shoes
and truly feel another’s pain?

what will it be? broken dreams…?
waiting impatiently
pieces, pieces – or peace?
Ya Rabb imnachna issalam
Prosim pekne, at je mir
Dona nobis pacem
Hu ya aseh shalom aleynu
pieces, pieces – or peace?
