So what he sings is "we're a ####ed up generation". But there's a word play here, since the word "metzuyan" ("מצוין") you mention, sounding almost the same, means "excellent", so you can also hear "we're an excellent generation" (making it quite difficult for someone to translate this song). The non-slang meaning of the word really means "armed", and the slang meaning is derived from something that every man is armed with. The word is quite rarely used in the media nowadays because of the connotations of its slang use. It was used more in the distant past (fifty years and more) and some things that were written in the media and public documents back then sound very funny today.
Ah, that explains a lot, thanks. The slang interpretation makes a lot more sense given the rest of the lyrics.
I'd love to get that Aviv Geffen CD, but it's very hard to find outside of Israel. His albums with Blackfield are sold here, but I prefer Aviv singing in Hebrew really.



I'm now listening to Soft Cell - "Together alone" (live in the O2 Arena London, 2018)

Marc Almond's vocals are still crystal clear, he aged very well! I hope they'll tour again, I'm gutted to have missed that concert in London which was announced as their last ever concert. But they signed a new record deal now, so I'm hoping for a new tour or at least a few concerts happening after all.
