Yoter Mize Anachnu Lo Tzrichim | יותר מזה אנחנו לא צריכים (English translation)

English translation

More than this we do not need

The rain give it at it's time
And in the Spring spread flowers for us
And let us go home and see it
More than this we do not need
 
How much more can we hear
Death tolls on the streets every weekend?
How much will we speak about the means to stop
And keep acting like nothing is known.
Why? Every accident isn't considered like an attack?
Just an extra injured and dead causality.
And just like it comes and goes,
An entire nation bites and pulls it's lip
however, we're here to remind everyone
That the time has come to open eyes
The graph isn't going down, it stands on twenty
deaths every two weeks.
Another day and another dead causality
Do something about the subject? Nah
We'll hesitate, Coordinate with municipalities
Won't hesitate, it's the time to get out
And hand out the truth!
 
(x2)
The rain give it at it's time
And in the Spring spread flowers for us
And let us go home and see it
More than this we do not need
 
Pay attention!
If you'd count all the casualties of all the wars
In all ages including arenas overseas
You won't reach a number so bleak and exaggerated
Tens of thousands die
In Israel on the roads
And every week ten more
And what are we doing?
Closing our eyes, trying not to see
Not to hear, so we won't sink between the problems
That we live here personally
Believe inside of me that " it won't happen to me"
So where's the strategy, huh?
And what with public transport?
Who will bring a saviour to the Israeli people?
And when will a turnaround happen?
 
(x2)
The rain give it at it's time
And in the Spring spread flowers for us
And let us go home and see it
More than this we do not need
 
All that's left is to ask to return
His life to his hands, and that God keeps him safe
That a heroic friend gets up and help
And not let him "go" to the steering wheel drunk
 
(x2)
The rain give it at it's time
And in the Spring spread flowers for us
And let us go home and see it
More than this we do not need

The chorus "את הגשם תן רק בעיתו
ובאביב פזר לנו פרחים
ותן לנו לשוב ולראותו
יותר מזה אנחנו לא צריכים" and the song title are actually taken from Shlomo Artzi's song which has the same name.

Sub is a great artist and I especially love his earlier work, but Shlomo is in a different league.
