Bill Maher Boycott Urged By Rep. Rahida Tlaib For His HBO Slam On Her Israel Boycott

Last week, Israel barred Tlaib and Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar from entering their country because of their support for the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. The banishment was supported by President Trump.
Tlaib tweeted that she was tired of folks like Maher “discrediting a form of speech that is centered on equality and freedom.”


Maher entered the fray on Friday during his Real Time show, calling the BDS movement a “bullshit purity test by people who want to appear woke, but actually slept through history class.”
 ” />
“It’s predicated on this notion, I think — it’s very shallow thinking — that the Jews in Israel, mostly white, and the Palestinians are browner, so they must be innocent and correct, and the Jews must be wrong,” he said. “As if the occupation came right out of the blue, that this completely peaceful people found themselves occupied."
“Congresswoman Omar has said things like, ‘It’s all about the Benjamins,’ ‘Israel has hypnotized the world,’ ‘May Allah awaken the people and help them see the evil doings of Israel,’ ” Maher said. “She apologized for it, but it’s out there: Jews control the world, control the money.”
Maher added that he understood why Tlaib and Omar were banned, given their past statements.
It didn’t work then and it won’t now.” She added: “This is exactly how they tried to discredit & stop the boycott to stand up against the apartheid in S. Africa.
Her request was granted, but she rejected it because its was conditional on her not speaking out on the BDS movement while visiting. Tlaib then asked Israel to allow her to see her 90-year-old grandmother in the West Bank.
The call against Maher continues a volatile stretch for the Michigan Democrat, a member of The Squad of freshmen whose radical agenda has seemed to move their party to the far left.
Fresh off being barred from Israel and then turning down a humanitarian visit to the West Bank, Rep. Rashida Tlaib has now called for a boycott of HBO's Bill Maher, who has termed her efforts a "bullshit purity test."

Apple Developing English-Language Remake Of Keshet International’s Israeli Thriller ‘False Flag’

and on Fox International Channels across its global portfolio of networks. A Russian adaptation of the series is in production with NTV and is expected to air soon. The original series, which won the Grand Prize at Series Mania and launched at Berlinale and was produced by Tender Productions, aired via Hulu in the U.S.
EXCLUSIVE: Apple is developing an English-language version of Israeli thriller False Flag.
It is the latest Keshet project to land at Apple; last year it emerged that the digital platform was working on a remake of Nevelot starring Richard Gere from Howard Gordon (24) and Warren Leight (Law & Order: SVU) and produced by Fox 21 Television Studios, Gordon’s Teakwood Lane Prods. and Keshet Studios.
Deadline understands that the company’s forthcoming streaming service is working up an adaptation of Keshet International’s Hebrew-language TV series, which was created by Amit Cohen and Maria Feldman.
As news bulletins repeatedly broadcast their names and photos, their attempts at denial are all in vain – the coverage sweeps them up in a maelstrom of publicity. The first season of the drama, which first aired on Israel’s Channel 2 in 2015, tells the story of five people, who wake up one morning to find themselves implicated in a ruthless kidnapping operation following the disappearance of the Iranian Defence Minister. Instead of helping them, the authorities persecute, investigate and point fingers, and even their loved ones begin to doubt their innocence. At first, everyone is convinced that Mossad was behind the operation – but then the five civilians are stunned to discover that the government, which is supposed to protect them, as well as Mossad itself, denies all involvement and accuses them as suspects.
Directed by Oded Raskin, it starred Ishai Golan, Maggie Azarzar, Angel Bonanni, Ania Bukstein and Orna Salinger.
Keshet Studios, the company’s U.S. division run by Peter Traugott and Rachel Kaplan, has nearly a dozen projects in various stages of development with a slew of streaming platforms and broadcasters.” />
It tells the story of three people who are drawn into a similar situation after an explosion during an inauguration ceremony for the first oil pipeline connecting Israel to Turkey. A second season of the anthology series, created by Feldman and Leora Kamenetzky and produced by Masha TV, also premiered at Berlinale earlier this year.

Siouxsie and the Banshees – Israel (Album Version)

Little orphans in the snow
With nowhere to call a home
Start their singing
Waiting through the summertime
To thaw your hearts in wintertime
That’s why they’re singing
Waiting for a sign to turn blood into wine
The sweet taste in your mouth — turned bitter in its glass
Israel… in Israel
Israel… in Israel
Shattered fragments of the past
Meet in veins on the stained glass
Like the lifeline in your palm
Red and green reflects the scene
Of a long forgotten dream
There were princes and there were kings
Now hidden in disguise — cheap wrappings of lies
Keep your heart alive with a song from inside
Even though we’re all alone
We are never on our own when we’re singing
There’s a man who’s looking in
And he smiles a toothless grin
Because he’s singing
See some people shine with glee
But their song is jealousy
Their hate is clanging — maddening
In Israel… will they sing Happy Noel
Israel… in Israel
Israel… in Israel
In Israel will they sing Happy Noel

The Zack Snyder-directed movie is expected to take in a gross similar to Coco's with $60M over the next five days. Justice League overall has a 65% definite recommend. Warners is hoping that more of those older female Wonder Woman fans come out, just like they did for her June solo outing: Females over 25 are giving Justice League its best grades at 90%, but they're still in the minority among the pic's headcount repping only 18% of the audience. While critics have strangled Justice League with a 41% Rotten Tomatoes score, audiences are enjoying it with final PostTrak showing a 4-out-of-5-star response with males at 62% enjoying the movie with an 80% overall positive, and females at 38% giving it an 85% grade. Warner Bros/DC's Justice League led all films in regular release with a big Tuesday of $10.6M, up 41% over Monday, for a running cume of $111.9M.

Coco rang up $9M on Thanksgiving, which again beats Good Dinosaur's Turkey Day ($6.5M), is $900K shy of Moana ($9.9M) and $2M behind Frozen's ($11M) Thanksgiving. The notion is that the latter two films had the Disney princess halo working in their favor at the box office.

That said, when it comes to launching a new line of animated characters, Disney has all the social media and vertical integration power in its TV channels and parks to raise a fresh face among its faithful.
Lionsgate/Participant/Walden Media's Wonder made $6M yesterday and is on course to do better than its opening in weekend two with an estimated $29M (+5%) and a five-day of $40.9M.
Disney/Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok is looking at a $4M Wednesday, a three-day of $17.8M and five-day of $25M — still money out of Justice League's pocket. Running cume by Sunday looks to be $278.2M.

Every demo gave Coco an A+ except for the over 50 crowd (10%) who gave it an A. PostTrak showed a rare, strong five-out-of-five stars for Coco which is on par with CinemaScore's A+. A third of those who took in Coco attended with an adult family member, while 21% of all ticket buyers took a child family member. Definite recommend is at a very high 76%. 19% for Moana a year ago), and that demographic should remain strong through Sunday, making for better prospects. Caucasians repped 42% for Coco to Moana's 49%. Per PostTrak, Females under 25 were the predominant demo (30%),  followed by females over 25 (29%), men over 25 (25%) and men under 25 (16%). Typically, Pixar movies going back to Frozen dip on the Saturday following Black Friday by 2%-6%, however, ComScore/Screen Engine's PostTrak shows a very strong Hispanic turnout at 39% for Coco (vs. CinemaScore's opening night audience was made up of 60% females,  40% under 18. This was a similar make-up to Moana a year ago, however, there were slightly more Dads (men over 25) than Moms (women over 25).
 On the final night of ABC's Dancing With the Stars on Oct. 16 aka "Disney night", the show featured a performance by Nikki Bella and Artem Chigvintsev singing the pic's signature song “Remember Me” penned by Frozen Oscar-winning songwriters Robert and Kristen Anderson Lopez. RelishMix is also impressed with Disney's launch of the Coco soundtrack which through various songs clips counts north of 20M views on YouTube. Disney introduced the pic's main protagonist Miguel on NBC's The Voice.
Currently, the Lee Unkrich-Adrian Molina film should hit $70M-plus in five days, and $47M over three days. Thanksgiving AM Update: Moviegoers love Coco: The Disney film earned an A+ CinemaScore last night, Pixar's 6th ever, and the best since Up. But given how wild Black Friday is at the box office, and the current buzz for the film, Coco could conceivably go much higher. On top of that, Coco came in much higher on its first day with an estimated $13.3M; which is behind Thanksgiving openers Moana ($15.5M) and Frozen ($15.1M) and ahead of Good Dinosaur ($9.76m) and Tangled ($11.9M).
On a three-day basis, Wonder is expected to ease 4% right now. The Stephen Chbosky-directed film will easily be Lionsgate's best of 2017, topping John Wick: Chapter Two's $92M. Wow. Lionsgate's Wonder is looking at $6M today, up 7% from Tuesday, with a current three-day outlook of $26.5M and five-day of $37.5M, heading toward $74.6M.

Industry estimates as of Thanksgiving morning for the Thanksgiving stretch of Nov. 22-26:
Many expect the Julia Roberts-Owen Wilson movie to be north of $64M by Sunday in its running domestic total. Lionsgate's Wonder chalked up an estimated $5.6M yesterday, up 43% over Monday, for a five-day total of $37.1M.

Superman (-69%) and August champ Suicide Squad (-67%). The Pixar movie steps on the capes of Warner Bros/DC super friends movie Justice League which earned $10.45M yesterday, -1% from Tuesday for a running total of $122.3M. Pic's 5-day is at $63.6M with three day landing at $44.1M, -53%, which again, thanks to the holiday, bests the post-Easter drop of Batman v.
and Canada. Coco opens at a sensitive time for Disney. Still, that Hollywood insider scandal isn't expected to rock Coco's prospects in the rest of the U.S. Just yesterday, Pixar boss John Lasseter said he was taking a six-month sabbatical amid allegations of inappropriate behavior.
Pic is running 10% ahead of Warner's Thanksgiving hit a year ago Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them which churned a 3x multiple from its opening for a final cume of $234M. Fans wouldn't accuse Thor of stealing: He's just the better superhero movie. If Justice League can keep up that pace throughout December, it will end its stateside run at $257M. Still, Disney/Marvel's Thor: Ragnarok is still stealing away dollars from Justice League's bank account with the Son of Asgard threequel grossing $24M over five-days. This puts the pic at a $40.8M second FSS (-57%) and $59.9M 5-day for a running total that's just under $172M. Warner Bros./DC's Justice League wasn't that far behind Coco on Thanksgiving, making $8.5M, however, their gap widened on Friday with the Zack Snyder-directed title earning $16.4M.
While many have dinged Justice League for being less-than as a superhero movie, especially in its ensemble execution, the fact is that it's brought more dollars to the Thanksgiving frame than Warner Bros' Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them a year ago: Last weekend the box office was at $200.3M, +27% higher than a year ago. This makes exhibitors happy.

Today there are 74% kids off from K-12 and another 59% of colleges. That number moves up to 100% over the next two days. and Black Friday is even bigger. The night before Thanksgiving is a notable one at the B.O.
Some of this boils down to whether WB can keep close to 2K theaters like they did last year with a Star Wars on the marquee. It will be interesting to see if Justice League does the same. In addition, another note about Fantastic Beasts: Even though that movie leaned more female at 55% in weekend one, it churned a 3X multiple at the box office ending its run at $234M. By Sunday, the super friends will be pacing 12% ahead of Fantastic Beasts through 10 days with $175.4M.

Though not a marketing stunt – let's call it free publicity – Conan O'Brien had a bone to pick with Disney over the film's title soon after the first trailer dropped: The studio was using the late night host's nickname (coined originally by Tom Hanks) without his permission.

With $6M-plus over five days, Sony's Roman J. Over four days, Fences made $11.6M at 2,233 theaters. Even though Roman J. Spike Lee's Mo' Better Blues ($4.4M) and Ricochet ($4.8M). The movie is slowed greatly by a 55% Rotten Tomatoes score, and the fact that it doesn't have the brilliant word of mouth that Denzel Washington's Fences did a year ago. On a three-day basis, Roman is down there with the Washington's 1990 openings, i.e. That movie served as solid counter-programming in a Star Wars-controlled market and won an Oscar for Viola Davis' best supporting turn. is coming in at the low end of where rivals were pegging it at $6M over five-days.

As we move along this week, it should settle down and separate the two. UPDATE, midday Friday: Disney/Pixar's Coco is looking at an opening day of $12.5 million (including last night's $2.3M) as of this point per industry estimates, which is $3M less than what Moana chalked up a year ago. Right now, because it's so early, both Coco and Warner Bros' Justice League are in a battle for No. 1 overall at the domestic box office with an estimated $47M three-day and $68M five-day each.

While we've been complaining about the film's lackluster performance in regards to the DC franchise, exhibitors could care less about that: They're rolling in concession cash, and the marketplace in the past three weeks has been a boom versus last summer's doldrums. Coco will beat Justice League today with the latter Zack Snyder movie making an estimated $10.5M, down 1% versus yesterday. If its projections hold, the DC superhero team-up will touch just under $180M.

RelishMix weighs Coco's social media universe across Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and YouTube views at close to 483M, which is "well ahead of the family animated genre average SMU of 253.4M". RelishMix points out "part of the magic of The Mouse is when a film like Coco or next month’s Star Wars: The Last Jedi debuts a trailer or any other social materials: A film has 156.8M fans and followers to reach right out of the gate." Roughly broken down such Disney pages/feeds pushing Coco include the main Disney portal (69.3M), Walt Disney Animation Studios (17.7M) and Walt Disney Studios (42.4M). The teaser trailer for Coco debuted in March and played on the biggest film of the year, Beauty and the Beast, with the first full trailer dropping in June in connection with Cars 3.
Coco carries a reported production cost in the Pixar range which is typically between $175M-$200M before P&A, however, those in the animation world believe it's much higher north of $225M. Moana grossed $56.6M in its first three days and $82M over five, making it the second-best Thanksgiving stretch debut after Frozen's $93.6M. Coco in its Dia de los muertos story doesn't have the Disney princess factor Moana possessed, which pushed down on Coco's projections prior to opening. But the film has a 95% certified fresh Rotten Tomatoes score, which could push its tickets sales higher; it's just one point below Moana's RT rating.
Industry estimates now see Disney/Pixar's Coco at $18.66M for Friday, on a path to a $48.4M 3-day and a $7o.6M 5-day. One analyst is pointing to Disney's Tangled as a numerical comp which earned $48.8M over three and $68.7M over five. Saturday AM Writethru following Black Friday update: While Friday was definitely a great day at the box office with the top 25 films making approximately $72M to last year's $71M Black Friday, everything still came in a little lighter. Black Friday was +105% over Thanksgiving's $35.1M this year. Exhibition stocks in response to the multiplex foot traffic were up on Friday in short trading. That's still ahead of Pixar's Good Dinosaur ($15.5M Fri, $39.1M FSS, $55.4M 5-day) two years ago (and that bombed), and a few steps behind last year's Moana and mega hit Frozen which respectively posted $82M and $93.6M over their Thanksgiving 5-day stretches.
PREVIOUSLY, 8:26 AM: Disney/Pixar's Coco began its Thanksgiving march on the box office last night with $2.3 million, with an eye on making $60M or more over the next five days.

Tears flowed at a recent AMPAS screening. Lionsgate's Wonder in third place made $8.75M on Friday which now puts the Stephen Chbosky-directed title at $22.4M over FSS, -19%, and $32.3M over five with a 10-day run of $69.5M. Pete Hammond reports that Lionsgate will give Wonder an awards season push even though the distributor's original intention was to make the movie a commercial success over the holiday.
Ad partners included Airbnb, Ancestry, Chatbooks, Guitar Center, The HERDEZ Brand, Purple, Southwest Airlines (including Boeing 737-700 wrap), Subway, and Sun Rype.
In addition, California Adventure, Walt Disney World and Disney Cruise Line all featured an 11-minute sneak peek of the film this month. Disney’s California Adventure introduced "Plaza de la Familia" in September, a section of the park that celebrated Coco.

Judas:
Mm, everytime I look at you
I don’t understand
Why you let the things you did
Get so out of hand
You’d have managed better
If you’d had it planned
Now why’d you choose such a backwards time
And such and strange land

[Verse 2]
If you’d come today
You could have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 BC
Had no mass communication

[Pre-Chorus]
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong) Don’t you get me wrong
(Don’t you get me wrong, now) Don’t you get me wrong

(Only want to know) Only want to know

Judas:
Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
Now who’d you think, besides yourself
Was the pick of the crop?
Buddha was he where it’s at?
Is he where you are?
Could Mohammed move a mountain or was that just PR?
Did you mean to die like that
Was that a mistake or
Did you know your messy death would be a record breaker?

Musicals – Jesus Christ Superstar: Judas’ Death lyrics

Judas:
My God, I saw him
He looked three-quarters dead
And he was so bad
I had to turn my head
You beat him so hard
That he was bent and lame
And I know who everybody’s
Going to blame
I don’t believe he knows
I acted for our good
I’d save him all the suffering
If I could
Don’t believe our good
Save him if I could

Annas:
Cut the confessions
Forget the excuses
I don’t understand why
You’re filled with remorse
All that you’ve said
Has come true with a vengeance
The mob has turned against him
You’ve backed the right horse

Caiaphas:
What you have done
Will be the saving of Israel
You’ll be remembered forever for this
And not only that
You’ve been paid for your efforts
Pretty good wages
For one little kiss

Judas:
Christ!
I know you can’t hear me
But I only did what you wanted me to
Christ!
I’d sell out the nation
For I have been saddled
With the murder of you
I have been spattered
With innocent blood
I should be dragged
Through the slime and the mud
I have been spattered
With innocent blood
I should be dragged
Through the slime and the slime and the slime and the mud

I don’t know how to love him
I don’t know why he moves me
He’s a man
He’s just a man
He’s not a King
He’s just the same
As anyone I know
He scares me so
When he’s cold and dead
Will he let me be?
Does he love?
Does he love me too?
Does he care for me?
Oh, God

My mind is in darkness now
Oh my God I am sick
I’ve been used
And you knew
All the time
God I’ll never know
Why you chose me for your crime
Your foul bloody crime
You, you have murdered me
You have murdered me
Murdered me
Murdered me
Murdered me

Crowd/choir:
So long, Judas poor old Judas
So long, Judas poor old Judas
So long, Judas poor old Judas

Andrew Lloyd Webber – Superstar lyrics

Everytime I look at you don’t understand
Why you let the things you did get so out of hand?
Youd have managed better if you’d had it planned
Whyd you choose such a backward time and such a strange land?
If you’d come today you could have reached a whole nation
Israel in 4 bc had no mass communication
Don’t you get me wrong – I only want to know
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?
Tell me what you think about your friends at the top
Whod you think besides yourselfs the pick of the crop?
Buddha was he where it’s at? Is he where you are?
Could Mahomet move a mountain or was that just pr?
Did you mean to die like that?
Was that a mistake or
Did you know you messy death would be a record breaker?
Don’t you get me wrong – I only want to know
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ, Jesus Christ
Who are you? What have you sacrificed?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are?
Jesus Christ Superstar
Do you think you’re what they say you are

Tyler Joseph – O Come, O Come Emmanuel Lyrics

[Intro: David McCreary]
Coming to the stage now
Is our new singer, first time on television, though you’ve probably heard of him
He is the president of the [?] day fan club
Actually I hear that Sinatra has a restraining order against him
Please, help me welcome him to the stage, Tyler Joseph

[Tyler Joseph]
Oh no, no

[Verse 1]
O come, O come, Emmanuel
And ransom captive Israel
That mourns in lonely exile here
Until the Son of God appears
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

No, no
Oh no

[Verse 2]
O come, Thou Day-Spring, come and cheer
Our spirits by Thine advent here
Disperse the gloomy clouds of night
And death’s dark shadows put to flight
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

Oh no, no, no
Oh no, no, no, no, no

Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel
Rejoice! Rejoice! Emmanuel
Shall come to thee, O Israel

[Outro: David McCreary & Tyler Joseph]
Tyler Jefferson everybody, round of applause
Wow, that was dark
That was dark
You do realise that it’s Christmas
The carols great
Carol is greats, but so is Betty but she doesn’t make me want to cry
I hear you’re going on tour
Yeah, my band and I
Oh your band, let me stop you right there
Elvis never needed a band
I’m not Elvis
You didn’t need to tell me twice
Tyler Rae-Jepsen everybody
Thank you, so Merry Christmas Tyler
Get off the stage
Ma, I’m tryna
Bring back Tyler, he’s got something, am I right

B.o.B – Mercy Me (Elements Album)

[Verse 1: B.o.B]
Yo, I don’t care who listening
I find it kind of sickening
We send billions to Israel
But shit on Flint, Michigan
A country founded off of immigrants
Now we want to build a wall to keep out all the immigrants
What you witnessing
Military exercises demonstrated on citizens
Anti-war petitioning
Drone strike incoming
Homeless vets decorate the street, can’t get no income in
How do you save a world that can’t be saved?
How do you raise a child that won’t behave? (Preach)
Waking up from the lies, I feel betrayed
I’m guessing the rabbit hole we dug was actually just a grave
Skeletons in the closet, they fossilized
Niggas want the truth sugar coated and carmelized
Life is like a science fiction book where the author dies
Well I ain’t dead yet cuz the hit hadn’t been authorized

[Chorus]
I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
I will survive, I walk alone
Look in my eye
So give me justice, give me peace
Or give my freedom back at least
So we can meet up in the street, you decide

[Verse 2: B.o.B]
Who you bow to?
Elected councils, full of scoundrels
Who now rule, the world around you
While wearing houseshoes
They clown you
You wear your house, or your whole house full
Regimes don’t die; they change they name and the accounts move
Life goes on with or without you
Words fall on deaf ears, I think they soundproof
The sound of justice makes us cringe
But how can we stand the sound?
You can’t even stand your ground
A noose around your neck, the sharpest minds will cut them down
Caught inside the web, the internet is tightly wound
Every day a hundred k feel more like a couple thou’
What’s a dollar to a pound?
What’s a pound to the crown?
Look, ay
I’m sick of waiting, man this flag i’m sick of waving
No more participating
Time to form our own nation
You call it integration, I call that discrimination
They say it’s risk i’m taking
I call it decision making

[Chorus]
I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
I will survive, I walk alone
Look in my eye
So give me justice, give me peace
Or give my freedom back at least
So we can meet up in the street, you decide

[Verse 3: B.o.B]
You not an activist, you’re more like a re-activist
False flags, crisis actors trying to re-enact some shit
Stories don’t match, I never believe half the shit
While they’re sneaking pass a law we’re easily distracted, ay
Trying to get through to these dense fucks
You’re too stupid to insult
I say the shit anybody can prove
I don’t know, guess if it rhymes it’s got to be true
Look, cheap tricks and fabricated speeches
Blonde hair, blue eyes – they even fabricated Jesus
Just look at the salary paid to teachers
It’s obvious they don’t want us to graduate into leaders
Clearly, in court videos don’t prove much
Why is news cameras in the courtroom, huh?
Even if it’s just a game, I hear the signal louder
I think I got the message, they don’t really care about us

[Chorus]
I hear freedom ringing but I won’t answer the phone
Because the people on the other end will not leave us alone
Mr. Officer I come in peace, just know I brought my piece
And if we can’t settle this peacefully, the violence will increase, yeah
I don’t condone racial divide, I won’t be cloned
I will survive, I walk alone
Look in my eye
So give me justice, give me peace
Or give my freedom back at least
So we can meet up in the street, you decide

[fade to interlude]
Oohh, oohh, ooh[x4]

Tim Rice – Close Every Door To Me (Joseph And The Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat) lyrics

Close every door to me
Hide all the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light
Do what you want with me
Hate me and laugh at me
Darken my daytime
And torture my night
If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers
Lie far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel are never alone
For I know I shall find
My own peace of mind
For I have been promised
A land of my own

(Choir)
Close every door to me
Hide All the world from me
Bar all the windows
And shut out the light

La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la la la la

(Joseph)
Just give me a number
Instead of my name
Forget all about me
And let me decay

I do not matter
I’m only one person
Destroy me completely
Then throw me away
If my life were important I
Would ask will I live or die
But I know the answers
Lie far from this world

Close every door to me
Keep those I love from me
Children of Israel
Are never alone
For we know we shall find
Our own piece of mind
For we have been promised
A land of our own
