Zog Nit Keynmol
זאָג ניט קיין מאָל



English translation

Never say this is the final road for you,
Though leaden skies may cover over days of blue.
As the hour that we longed for is so near,
Our step beats out the message: we are here!

From lands so green with palms to lands all white with snow.
We shall be coming with our anguish and our woe,
And where a spurt of our blood fell on the earth,
There our courage and our spirit have rebirth!

The early morning sun will brighten our day,
And yesterday with our foe will fade away,
But if the sun delays and in the east remains –
This song as password generations must remain.

This song was written with our blood and not with lead,
It's not a little tune that birds sing overhead,
This song a people sang amid collapsing walls,
With pistols in hand they heeded to the call.

Therefore never say the road now ends for you,
Though leaden skies may cover over days of blue.
As the hour that we longed for is so near,
Our step beats out the message: we are here!
   

Yiddish in transliteration

zog nit keyn mol, az du geyst dem letstn veg,
khotsh himlen blayene farshteln bloye teg.
kumen vet nokh undzer oysgebenkte sho,
s'vet a poyk ton undzer trot: mir zaynen do!

fun grinem palmenland biz vaysn land fun shney,
mir kumen on mit undzer payn, mit undzer vey,
un vu gefaln iz a shprits fun undzer blut,
shprotsn vet dort undzer gvure, undzer mut!

s'vet di morgnzun bagildn undz dem haynt,
un der nekht vet farshvindn mit dem faynt,
nor oyb farzamen vet di zun in der kayor –
vi a parol zol geyn dos lid fun dor tsu dor.

dos lid geshribn iz mit blut, un nit mit blay,
s'iz nit keyn lidl fun a foygl oyf der fray,
dos hot a folk tsvishn falndike vent
dos lid gezungen mit naganes in di hent.

to zog nit keyn mol, az du geyst dem letstn veg,
khotsh himlen blayene farshteln bloye teg.
kumen vet nokh undzer oysgebenkte sho –
es vet a poyk ton undzer trot: mir zaynen do!
   

Original Yiddish

זאָג ניט קיין מאָל, אַז דו גייסט דעם לעצטן וועג,
כאָטש הימלען בלײַענע פֿאַרשטעלן בלויע טעג.
קומען וועט נאָך אונדזער אויסגעבענקטע שעה –
ס׳וועט אַ פּויק טאָן אונדזער טראָט: מיר זײַנען דאָ!

פֿון גרינעם פּאַלמענלאַנד ביז ווײַסן לאַנד פֿון שניי,
מיר קומען אָן מיט אונדזער פּײַן, מיט אונדזער וויי,
און וווּ געפֿאַלן ס׳איז אַ שפּריץ פֿון אונדזער בלוט,
שפּראָצן וועט דאָרט אונדזער גבֿורה, אונדזער מוט!

ס׳וועט די מאָרגנזון באַגילדן אונדז דעם הײַנט,
און דער נעכט וועט פֿאַרשווינדן מיט דעם פֿײַנט,
נאָר אויב פֿאַרזאַמען וועט די זון אין דער קאַיאָר –
ווי אַ פּאַראָל זאָל גיין דאָס ליד פֿון דור צו דור.

דאָס ליד געשריבן איז מיט בלוט, און מיט בלײַ,
ס׳איז ניט קיין לידל פֿון אַ פֿויגל אויף דער פֿרײַ,
דאָס האָט אַ פֿאָלק צווישן פֿאַלנדיקע ווענט
דאָס ליד געזונגען מיט נאַגאַנעס אין די הענט.

טאָ זאָג ניט קיין מאָל, אַז דו גייסט דעם לעצטן וועג,
כאָטש הימלען בלײַענע פֿאַרשטעלן בלויע טעג.
קומען וועט נאָך אונדזער אויסגעבענקטע שעה –
ס׳וועט אַ פּויק טאָן אונדזער טראָט: מיר זײַנען דאָ!

Resistance (The Rebellion)

We are the fallen ones
Begin the resistance
The moon has changed day into darkness
As we are kissed by funeral winds
Marching toward the horizon
In fragmantic grim atmospeheres
When the mysterious touch of darkness whispers
And hidden we will spread our wings
(So) may the night carry our minds to revenge
(We) seeking the path to end up in glory
In the shimmering and burning firmament
Summoned we stand with dying feelings in our hearts
Prepared to start the dance of pure violence
Frozen silhouettes, beyond thy firmament, awaits those who cannot win
Across the ocean of clouds we arise like a storm of everflowing tears
Preludium of the forsaken, the tragical horizon of peace

Oh crimson beauty - dark sculptured entity
Embraced in silence - eternal apathy
Oh crimson beauty - fortress to bury me
Welcome my glory - Angels of jealousy

So outside the gate we stand to enter once again the halls of false eternity
A supreme shimmering spectrum offers, tormented cosmic chaos
Enchanted symphonies of dawn lurk beyond, thy profane cryptic soulentrance
Thou darkest dreams an astral solution
Welcome rebellion the nocturnal resistance

Oh crimson beauty - sponsored so heavenly
Night's protecting me - of angelic apathy
Oh crimson beauty - I'm introducing me
Create obscurity - Heaven thy destiny

Seduced in solitary dreams in harmless romantic forced whispers
Return to the pure sound of innocence the power of the night
Oh solution
The second storm rebellion, the profane resistance
This time thy delirious Heaven shall be mine forced gentle to kiss my profane mind
And all stars shall shine on velvet streamed illusions to the glimmering blaze of glory
Look at the Heaven, the angelic forsaken sky of bitterness
Come forth, far beyond, to the astral grave
(To the abyss millennium asylum of peaceful tyranny)

Oh crimson beauty - of sculptured memory
Forsaken centuries - your ancient symphonies
Oh supreme Angels - of tortured agony
I'll bury peace - for perfect harmony

What are you talking about? Is that a satanist song or something? I couldn't understand it.

edited to add: I never said I was tolerant of all religions. Satanists being inherently violent and immoral, I don't associate with them. Druids who worship forces of nature don't bother me because they have a moral code. Wiccans are also okay. I even know a necromancer who claims to have familiars*... But I draw the line at Satanists.

*Necromancy is magic based on mutual contract with the familiar... Very creepy, but not bad people.

It reminds me of the Poem of Sorrow...
The Poem of Sorrow

The edges of my fading memories,
the far off, frozen, unreachable life.

In a crack in the mirror that no one can hold,
a broken doll sings silent tears of mud.

Drain the maggots blood in the days that will never be returned,
and pierce the eyes with the briars of a clock that crumbled to dust within seven days.

The cruel judge records the faded letters of my life
Only a bird with broken wings can sing the truth

With light only silence.........

Death is frozen all the way to the edge of its molecules.

While the night loves eternity,
at the same time it chops down desire with a stone axe.

Drink up the pain of a brain being split open!

The twelve winter messengers who were washed ashore.....

The mirage above the piece of paper
The spent country made of glass
The corpse sings with a necklace of many, many tears on its breast

The ducks shadow on the cliff where light has ceased to exist
will the blameless traveler ever tell of this story?

On the night nineteen cold moons cross the sky,
after the day of pronouncement, and the night has passed,
the world will end with the rising of the sun

What else can we do
other than smash the green plate?

The blue lamplight roams about.
In the jewel of the night,
the fake empire will sink into the water.

In the destroyed daybreak,
the people will forget the hidden pain and..........

It's weirder in Japanese, and it rhymes... And the author intended it to be read in monotone by a creepy little girl.

Well then ... lets get that Spanish Inquisition fired up and running again.
We haven't had a good mass crucifixion in ages ... really ages.
[/sarcasm]

"inherently violent and immoral"?  Not judgmental at all huh?
Every single Satanist on the planet you personally know to be "inherently violent and immoral"?

Right.

"But I draw the line at Satanists."
Does anyone remember electing PKL as the TMM "Line Drawer"?

That sure sounds like that christian brand of tolerance again.
[namely the "I don't know or understand those OTHERS so they MUST BE bad, evil, nasty, inhuman Things." brand of tolerance.]

You're overreacting Gooch.

Nobody said anything about killing or torturing them... I'd never advocate an inquisition. If mine was the christian type of tolerance, my top 3 friends after my current gf would not be a Viet-Buddhist, a Shinto Priestess, and a Shintoist.

I speak only for myself, I don't need your or other members permission to draw a line and go no further. I recall saying "I", not "we". Whom I associate with or not is my own decision, and mine alone. It's also my right.

My first gf was a Methodist when we met and a lesbian satanist when she left me for a woman. I know about their directive to break every one of the ten commandments in order. It's not that they are breaking rules that bothers me, it's the part where they are supposed to commit theft, adultery, and ritual murder that makes them immoral.

I'm getting the feeling that TMMers in general expect all other members to agree with them on everything. I think this site is heading to another break-up because of intolerance for other people's prejudices (personal preferences) and personal philosophies. Not everybody has to be libertarian or anarchist.

Bad Moon Rising(J.C. Fogerty)

I see the bad moon arising.
I see trouble on the way.
I see earthquakes and lightnin'.
I see bad times today.


CHORUS:


Don't go around tonight,
Well, it's bound to take your life,
There's a bad moon on the rise.


I hear hurricanes ablowing.
I know the end is coming soon.
I fear rivers over flowing.
I hear the voice of rage and ruin.


CHORUS


All right!


Hope you got your things together.
Hope you are quite prepared to die.
Looks like we're in for nasty weather.
One eye is taken for an eye.


CHORUS

Pretty much anything by a band named Propagandhi kicks ass. They are a secular Anarchist band out of Canada. Here is one of there songs called-

"Who Will Help Me Bake This Bread?"
 
I speak my mind. I question theirs.
It seems to me like no one really cares.
Peripherally blind. Intellectually numb.
Ignorance by choice? Or just plain fucking dumb?
You're threatened by my mind. You want everything the same.
But my questions still remain.
You boycott your brain. You answer with fists.
But my questions still persist.
You can rearrange my face but you can't rearrange my mind.
You can beat this shell about me, but you can't touch what's inside.
So now who will help me bake this bread?
Who will be the first to speak and leave complacency for dead?
I've done all that I can on my own.
But stagnant minds persist to squeeze blood from this stone.
But I won't bleed for you. I have no need for you.
Death will be the day I concede to you.



Yup, it's a great song. For those of you who are interested, this song is on a album called "How to Clean Everything"
