„I’m afraid of what you do in the name of your god. | Kh’hob moyre far dem vos ir tut lekoved ayer got.“

»I ain’t afraid of your Yahweh
I ain’t afraid of your Allah
I ain’t afraid of your Jesus

I ain’t afraid of your churches
I ain’t afraid of your temples
I ain’t afraid of your praying

Keyn moyre far ayer el shaday
Keyn moyre far ayer ala
Keyn moyre far ayer yezus

Keyn moyre far ay’re kloysters
Keyn moyre far ay’re shiln
Keyn moyre far ay’re tfiles

Shteyt oyf, girt zikh on mit koyekh
Shtarkt zikh, di shrek iz nor a royekh
Hit zikh, far der sho vos frest dem moyekh
Mevinim af di tsaytn
Velen mit der tsayt ayk naytn ayngeyn

Keyn moyre far toldos yeyshu
Keyn moyre far toyres moyshe
Keyn moyre farn, farn alkoran
Don’t let the letter of the law obscure
The spirit of your love, it’s killing us

Keyn moyre far ay’re gelter
Keyn moyre far ayer tarbes
Keyn moyre far ay’re breyres

I ain’t afraid of your Sunday
I ain’t afraid of your spirit
I ain’t afraid of your teachers

Keyn moyre far ay’re shabes
Keyn moyre far ayer grenets
Keyn moyre far ay’re tantsn

I ain’t afraid of your children
I ain’t afraid of your music
I ain’t afraid of your stories

Rise up to your higher power
Free up from fear, it will devour you
Watch out for the ego of the hour
The ones who say they know it«
