"Judah Maccabee led an uprising in ancient Israel, recapturing the Temple for the Jews. The song was physically inspired by renovations to the new Exact Change office, in the course of which we did a lot of poking into formerly closed up spaces. That connected to something haunting I saw at the Tenement Museum on the Lower East Side - walled up spaces - and a metaphoric connection to my family's history. We're hoping for heavy rotation on Tel Aviv soft rock radio." Ė Damon Krukowski

Judah and the Maccabees

I looked behind the hotel
And saw a world that had disappeared long before
My eyes formed a line
And say the words that I canít understand

Judah and the Maccabees they come to me
Singing ai yai yai yai
Ai yai yai yai yai

I looked behind the hotel
Into the eyes of the prophet who lived so long before
Hide the light from me
And say the prayers that I should understand
And if Elijah comes and takes a chair by me
Iíll sing ai yai yai yai
Ai yai yai yai yai

And Judah and the Maccabees they come for me
Singing ai yai yai yai
Ai yai yai yai yai
