ACHERET ATA MET

OTHERWISE YOU'RE DEAD

Veshuv hakirkasim ba'im,
shuv yesh mofa'im ba'ir,
anashim shuv mizdahim,
hachi karov le'elohim.
batei kolno'a mele'im
s'ratim im happy end,
leha'avir et hazman besipurim,
acheret atah met.

Lefachot tisa le'at, ki lo nagi'a lo,
na'atzor lish'tot bakbuk echad,
ulai et mi nifgosh.
Veyesh simptomim, yesh migvan de'ot,
veyesh etzot,
lemashal katuv bepirsomot:
"al tikach sigariah,
acheret atah met..."

Ve'atah bocheh, ki zeh ichpat od,
zeh ichpat od,
zeh ichpat od.
Ve'atah tzo'ek umenaseh od,
menaseh od,
lakachat et hakol.
Ve'atah lochesh "rak tohavi,"
al titcharet - "amarti sh'tut."
Acheret atah met,
acheret atah met,
acheret atah met merov b'didut.

Shnei chayalim omdim bak'vish,
hineh atah osef otam,
bevat achat atah nizkar,
ech hayita bizmanam.
Atah lovesh et hame'il,
holech le'at ba'or,
acheret atah met mikor.

Uveshavrir shniyah mitraskot einecha,
mitraskot einecha,
mitraskot einecha.
Ve'atah nihyah avud lereg'a,
avud lereg'a,
lereg'a shuv avud.
Uveshavrir shniyah atah bocher shuv bachaim.
Mitoch hayisurim atah shotek umitchamek,
acheret atah met tza'ir...
