We live in the underground...

We live in the underground!
In darkness buried deep,
On the cellar walls moss is found,
On the floor rain does seep

In the dark underground
A dream blinded our sight:
Seeping on the floor ? Kinneret;
Dim bulb ? a ray of sun light.

And we'll believe: on a darkened day,
When a gun shall give the battle beat,
With G-d, war and decay
The redeemer of Zion we'll greet.

We'll greet him: may our blood be
On the streets a carpet red,
And on this carpet our skulls will be
As the white roses shed.
