about

The following three songs, Apocalyptic Prophecy, Dead Sea Song, and The Jew In You, were created for the theatre production “Waiting for Adam Spielman,” by Turkish-born Berliner playwright and director Hakan Savas Mican. It was staged in 2010 by the Israeli-born director Michael Ronen at Ballhaus Naunynstasse, Berlin’s groundbreaking “Post-Migrant” Theater. The play, a satirical dystopian fever dream written specifically for the international ensemble of actors who performed it, concerned the hopes and nightmares of a group of pilgrims who have traveled to the ruins of Detroit in search of the lost poet, prophet, and possible messiah Adam Spielman, a musician and drug-addict who, announcing his Apocalyptic Prophecy of Israel’s destruction, disappeared into the reforested city, never to return, but leaving a messianic liturgical text.

lyrics

Gute mentshn, a mayse vel ikh aykh dertseyln
Fun a tsayt vos vet kumen in goyrl
Es hot mir gekholmt a kholem, keyn sheyner
Fun der tsukunft fun Erets Yisroyl

An atom-bombe af Yerushalayim
Eksplodirt vi a brokh af der erd
A naye milkhome mit Iran un Mitsrayim
Kumt on vi a tayvlish ferd

Der Soyne-Yisroyl bazetst di gantse erets
Der oylem makht pleyte atsind
Di pleytem zey forn in shifn keyn Tsipern
Zey flien vi feyglekh in vint

Nor etlekhe blaybn tsu shteyen un kemfn
Di shvartse un oreme layt
Zey vern derharget fun milyonen mentshn
Vos gisn fun Gaza bafrayt

Di arabishe kinder zey tun di gebetn
Fun di shpelter fun koysl in brand
Zey leydikn oys dos postkestl fun himl
Men makht khorev dos heylike land

Nor es zaynen nisht nor yidn vos laydn in tsores
Shiitn bazetsn Beyrut
Dos land vert farkhurvet vi Sodom un Gomore
Un Amolek shaft taykhn fun blut

Yisroeldike bomben zey faln af Perziye
Un farbrenen bizn grunt Teyran
Amerike bageyt militerishe perversyes
Un di gantse velt vert gor a balagan

Un di arabishe kinder in ale di lender
Zey tuen di gasn in Eyrope blutroyt
Di shlakht treft di daytshn, frantsoysn, englender
Ale shtet vern toyt vi Detroyt

Di mentshhayt vet kumen in finstere tsaytn
Vos vet zayn shtelt ir zikher shoyn for
Muzlimen un yidn un kristn veln shtraytn
In dem nayem, dem blutikn dor


[Good people, I’ll tell you a tale
Of a time that will become fate
I dreamed a dream, not a good one,
Of the future of the land of Israel

In Jerusalem, an atom bomb
Explodes like a divine curse
A new war with Iran and Egypt
Comes on like a demonic horse

Israel’s mortal enemies occupy the whole land
The people immediately flee
The refugees take ships to Cypress
They scatter like birds in the wind

But some remain to stand and fight
The people of color, the poor
They are slaughtered by the millions
Who pour out of Gaza, freed

Arab children set fire to the prayers
Stuck in the cracks of the Wailing Wall
They empty out heaven’s postbox
And make a ruin of the Holy Land

But it’s not only Jews who suffer greatly
Shiites occupy Beirut
The land is destroyed like Sodom & Gomorrah
And Amalek spills rivers of blood

Israeli bombs fall on Persia
And burn Tehran to the ground
America commits military perversions
And the whole world falls into chaos

The Arab youth in all the countries
Make Europe’s streets run blood-red
The war comes to Germany, France, England
All cities are as dead as Detroit

Humanity will fall into dark times
You can already imagine how it will be
Muslims and Jews and Christians will battle
In a new and bloody generation]
