WHY - IS THIS NIGHT

Why are we sitting here,
3000 years later?
This night is why.
Why don't we get up and leave the world gracefully?
This night is why.

Why don't we fade
like breath on a window away?
This night is why.

A 3,000-year message
from all our zeides
THIS NIGHT IS WHY
WHY - IS THIS NIGHT
