Going to Palestine is an unreleased song by the Mountain Goats.


That woman set herself on fire
They said it on the radio
They said she lit up the skies of Palestine
I could not stand to hear them say so
I saw the stars come out
I saw the oranges on the trees

Later on they played some Caribbean song
Man they sure know how to pick 'em
The rich voice burning like a fuse 
The syncopated rhythm
I saw the stars come out
I saw the oranges cracking open
I saw you standing there
Orange blossom in your hair
Going to Palestine
Going to Palestine
