about

STRIKE! is a luscious & innovative Electronic Opera, based on the classical play Lysistrata by Aristophanes. Composed, written, performed & produced by Rona Geffen, Hilit Rozental & Ann Streichman. It is inspired by great musicals and music themed movies such as Hair, Cabaret, The Sound of Music, Grease and many more. Like these great musicals STRIKE! proclaims a strong statement through music on modern days politics.
As Israelis the creators of STRIKE! live and deal with complexed political conflicts in their country and region. This led them to question the morality of the parties involved and exam the deeper relations between a state of an ongoing war and human rights. Relations which have been proven to affect other aspects of society such as social class, minorities and women’s rights.

Track Name: L.I.Z.Z.Y.
L to the I to the double Z Y

Lizzy is my name and I’m an average hun
Just a normal urban chicka going RA-PA-PA-PAM
I met my true prince charming
We were having that fun
But then the suits declared it’s time for us to live by the gun
I wanna share my story now with all of you folks
How people with agenda can create and evoke
Going on a search of who your hero might be
Take a better look inside
I found out it was me
Track Name: WELCOME TO TLVillage
Welcome to TLVillage, love is in the air
Track Name: JUST FUCK ME
I’m sick of waiting for the kick
I want a man that knows his tricks
Someone that knows just where to touch
Such a guy I want so much
And I’m a chick that needs to tick
But baby you were quick to quit
I got no time for all this shit
Just fuck me

Now times have changed my dear, Mein Herr
It’s not like that a girl can’t dare
And I just came here for the hunt
Please stop acting like a cunt
I’m a girl that needs to know
Will you flow or will you go
I had enough of useless dicks
Just fuck me

I never thought that it will be
For a fine pussy such as me
So hard to get a decent lay
Just to drag me through the day
Track Name: THE REGIME
Like a drum the regime beats on and on
Track Name: NATIONAL ERECTION
We’ve got a national erection
So pay very good attention
I’m coming home for a vacation
With all my physical reaction, action, action, action

Knock, knock, knock, who’ll be knocking on your Knock, knock, knock, who’ll be knocking on your Knock, knock, knock, who’ll be knocking on your Front door, back door

Flip flop baby flip flop
Flip flop baby flip flop

I wanna do things to you, you never knew exist It’s gonna feel so good you won’t resist
I wanna do things to you, you never knew exist It’s gonna feel so good you won’t resist

I wanna win this war with you
I’m gonna win this war for you
I wanna win this war with you
I’m gonna win this war for you
It’s my battlefield, I’m your body shield
Aim, Shoot, Kill, I’m coming home

You give me 69 reasons to come home to you
Feel every inch of your body that’s all I wanna do
You hear the knock? Open up baby
Let me in and hear the music playin’ just for you lady

Knock, Knock, Knock
I’ll be Knocking on your front door, back door

I wanna do things to you, you never knew exist
It’s gonna feel so good you won’t resist
I wanna do things to you, you never knew exist
It’s gonna feel so good you won’t resist

I wanna win this war with you
I’m gonna win this war for you
I wanna win this war with you
I’m gonna win this war for you
It’s my battlefield, I’m your body shield
Aim, Shoot, Kill, I’m coming home
Track Name: ALL LADIES WILL SAY NO
We’ve gotta fight for our lives
No one can solve this but us
We’ve gotta fight for whats right
And we must unite
If we use all that we've got
And we have more than a lot
Then we can end this ordeal
You'll see that it’s real

Everywhere they'll go
All ladies will say no
Keeping them all anxious
And melt in our hands

No sex for them in TLVillage
No sex at all
Until they end this
No sex for them in TLVillage
No sex at all
Until they end this war

You really think this will work?
And why should we all just drop
The one thing that brings us joy
Our favorite toy
Our men are strong and so brave
And we were taught to obey
How can we make such a change
By closing our legs

If everywhere they'll go
All ladies will say no
Keeping them all anxious
And melt in our hands
No sex for them in TLVillage
No sex at all
Until they end this
No sex for them in TLVillage
No sex at all
Until they end this war

Then everywhere they'll go...
Track Name: I DON’T CARE
I have been craving for your lust all night
Now tell me baby was it worth the fight?
I sense your pounding veins they're marching high
This time I won't be standing by

I don't care what they told you, no
The tune they play is not our own
So take a stand
And choose life instead
I don't care what they said or who
There is nothing out there for you
So take a stand
And choose peace instead

I see those walls are rising from your eyes
You want your woman to sit back and sigh
I've heard this song before,
I know it now
Your words alone don't mean too much

I don't care what they told you, no
The tune they play is not our own
So take a stand
And choose life instead
I don't care what they said or who
There is nothing out there for you
So take a stand
And choose peace instead
Track Name: NO SEX in TLVillage
You gotta fight for the cause
We gotta fight for our love
You gotta serve when you're called
We will not stand by and sigh
We have to save our homeland
These are just words that you say
There is a reason for war
No reason's worth dying for

No sex for you in TLVillage
No sex at all until you end this war


We only aim to defend
Protect and love what you have
It's not a question of choice
We have to raise our own voice
Our country needs us today
And you are blind to obey
It's time you stand by your man
We have a much bigger plan

No sex for you in TLVillage
No sex at all until you end this war
Track Name: THE BROTHEL
Oh baby why did you come here tonight?
Was it ‘cos it’s nice in here and you are looking for some fun? Oh your strong body must be tired from the war
I bet you'd like to relax from it all

Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh

Maybe I can be of some help
I will let you touch my body and caress my legs
Would you like me to whisper in your ear?
I’ll tell you all my fantasies if thats what you wish

Ohh Ohh Ohh Ohh Ahh Ahh Ahh Ahh

No No No No!
I ain't gonna let you in
All us girls we made a deal
If you wanna piece of this, you need to make it right baby
Oh No No No!
You can’t buy your way in, no way
Another drink ain’t gonna get you no lay
Take off your uniform let’s see how much you’re a man
If you’re as brave as they say
Give up the fight and I will ask you to stay
Track Name: WHAT DA FUCK
What da fuck are you doing?!
Don’t go fucking around!
What da fuck don’t fuck
What da fuck don’t fuck

Don’t break down
(Don’t break down)
You know it’s for a good cause
(Don’t break down)
We’re gonna lose
Because of you
You know it’s for a good cause
‘Cos you’re breaking down
Gonna make us lose
What we fought for


What da fuck are you doing?!
Don’t go fucking around!
What da fuck don’t fuck
What da fuck don’t fuck

Don’t do it sister
You know it’s not what you really want
You know we gonna win this
If we stick together
Let them dry
We will stick together
Thigh to thigh
Wave our assets and praise them high
​We will watch them dry
We will watch them dry...
Track Name: THE CARNAGE
Thousands of missiles against innocent civilians
Deliberately targeting innocent civilians
They celebrate the carnage
They celebrate the carnage

Thousands of missiles against innocent civilians
Deliberately targeting innocent civilians

They celebrate the carnage -------> He celebrates the carnage
Track Name: MEN EAT MEN
Men eat men
Men hate men
Men kill men
Men eat men
Track Name: ANI MA'AMIN אני מאמין
שחקי שחקי על החלומות
זו אני החולם שח
שחקי כי באדם אאמין
כי עודני מאמין בך
כי עוד נפשי דרור שואפת
לא מכרתיה לעגל פז
כי עוד אאמין גם באדם
גם ברוחו רוח עז

Play oh play ye at thy dreams
It is I who is dreaming, speaking
Play for I still believe in mankind
For I still believe in you

For my soul still longs for freedom
To the Golden Calf it was not sold
For I still believe in Mankind
And in its spirit – free and bold
Track Name: NO SATISFACTION
There is no satisfaction
In the action
There is no satisfaction
In the action
Of
There is no satisfaction
In the action
There is no satisfaction
In the action
Of
Hurting your fellow man

My guns are full of black powder
Your body is full of life
I may take your life today my friend
But it’s me that I sacrifice

There is no solution
In destruction
There is no redemption In revenge

So if I throw the stone of anger
And you shoot the shot of hate
Tell me who will tell our children
What our lives really meant

No one is a victim here
No one here is innocent
We are all in it together
Track Name: PROFIT & LOSS
Aren't we tired of killing all the time
Of wiping all these nations for the sake of land and pride
The sacred of our lives
Is being left behind
Our bodies are just numbers in the government's eyes
We always mark the other
And then we want them gone
But only joined together we can start to learn

Aren't we tired of hating in the name
Of looking at the difference when we all were born the same
You throw the stone of anger
I shoot the shot of hate
But who will tell our children what our lives had really meant
We always mark the other
And then we want them gone
But only joined together we can start to grow

This has been going on so bloody long
Why can’t everybody just get along
Aren’t you people bored of singing the same song
Would a gentle new melody be so wrong?

Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
Build a wall
Build a wall
Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
But right now to me that makes no sense at all

I mean come on
We even kind of look the same
Speech ain’t that different and we pretty much cook the same
This whole thing’s a massive political kerfuffle
I mean – come on people, we all love falafel
Obviously it’s much deeper than that
It’s two whole nations being fried in hot fat
It isn’t even about national pride
It’s just about having somewhere safe to reside

We are dealing with massive political oppression
Silent menace of territorial aggression
Constant threat of domestic repossession
We need positive action not just talking session

Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
Build a wall
Build a wall
Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
But right now to me that makes no sense at all

Any time you have a problem Build a wall
Build a wall
Build a wall
Any time you have a problem
Build a wall
But any idiot can see that makes no sense at all

At best it’s a temporary solution
Causing more anger and mental pollution
How can we blame a people for their rage
When they’re being forced to live in a cage
I mean I’m no great geographer but it looks to me
That both our lands are quite close to the sea
And I’m no psychologist but it seems to me
That in summer people might like to swim in the sea
And I’m no political theorist but it’s clear to me
That if you can’t do that then you’re far from free

All you can do is float on harsh salty dead sea
Which for your situation’s quite a good analogy
Get in and it stings
Get out it’s too hot
Try to swim elsewhere and you’ll probably get shot
Get in and it stings
Get out it’s too hot
Try to swim elsewhere and you’ll probably get shot

There's no solution in destruction
No redemption in revenge
No satisfaction in the action
Of hurting your fellow man
Track Name: GOOD DAY
Love won the war
Love won the war

Good day my friends
This is the end
Of hate and regrets
No blood on our hands
Love won the war...
Good day my friends
We stopped the war
Two sides with one goal
Live and be love
Live and let live...
“...They are talking about peace as a distant goal,
as an end we seek, but one day we must come to see
that peace is not merely a distant goal we seek,
but that it is a means by which we arrive at that goal.
We must pursue peaceful ends through peaceful means...”

Good day my friends
This is the end
Of hate and regrets
No blood on our hands
Good day, good day, good day my friends
Love won the war...
Good day, good day, good day my friend
Track Name: VEINS (I Want Your)
I've been waiting for your lust all night
Tell me baby was it worth the fight
Athens sleeps in chambers of delight
Aphrodite may she guide this ride

I want your veins, but your veins not enough
I want your love and I want it so much

Touching bodies let it groove our souls
Touching bodies till we lose control

Nyx is slipping luscious veils of dark
Eros pointing arrows straight at us

I want your veins, but your veins not enough
I want your love and
I want it so much
