      Satirical nationalist group Latma strikes a serious chord this Friday with its version of "Close Every Door" from the musical Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat – an Andrew Lloyd Webber musical with lyrics by Tim Rice. 


      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

      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 peace of mind

      For we have been promised

      A land of our own
