It seems fitting to be writing the insights to this song on this night, the 9th Of Av. Also known as Tisha B Av, this is the saddest day in the Jewish Calendar. Many incidents of Destruction and devastation occurred throughout our history on this day. To name a few, the first and second temples were destroyed, King Edward issued an edict for the Jews to leave England, Tisha b Av is also linked to the explusion of the Jews from Spain

Lyrics

Lamentations (Isaiah)

The Kings of the Earth
Could not believe
Nor al the inhabitants of the world
That an enemy could enter the gates
Of our city of peace
Now the temple is in ruins
The blind stagger in the street
It was for the sins of the prophets
The iniquities of the priests

And I’m standing here weeping by the wall
And I can’t make no sense out of it all
Why did you cause our city to fall
And what is the reason
For it all?

Oh Lord what’s befallen us
Behold and see our disgrace
The joys in our hearts has ceased
Our dancing’s turned to mourning
In this place

Now the crown of our heads
Has fallen for our sins
Our eyes have grown feint
And our hearts have become dim

And I’m standing here weeping by the wall
And I can’t make no sense out of it all
Why did you cause our city to fall
And what is the reason
For it all?

Why did you forsake us forever?
Forget us for so long?
Return us to you Hashem
That we may be restored
And return us to the days of yore

And I’m standing here weeping by the wall
And I can’t make no sense out of it all
Why did you cause our city to fall
And what is the reason
For it all?
