Jerusalem - Matisyahu ♫

Jerusalem - Matisyahu
In the ancient days, we will return with no delay 
Picking up the bounty and the spoils on our way 
We've been traveling from state to state 
And them don't understand what they say 
3,000 years with no place to be 
And they want me to give up my milk and honey 
Don't you see, it's not about the land or the sea 
Not the country but the dwelling of his majesty 
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
fire not gonna come from me tongue. 
Jerusalem, if I forget you, 
let my right hand forget what it's supposed to do.]

Rebuild the temple and the crown of glory 
Years gone by, about sixty 
Burn in the oven in this century 
And the gas tried to choke, but it couldn't choke me 
I will not lie down, I will not fall asleep 
They come overseas, yes they're trying to be free 
Erase the demons out of our memory 
Change your name and your identity 
Afraid of the truth and our dark history 
Why is everybody always chasing we 
Cut off the roots of your family tree 
Don't you know that's not the way to be 

Caught up in these ways, and the worlds gone craze 
Don't you know it's just a phase 
Case of the Simon says 
If I forget the truth then my words won't penetrate 
Babylon burning in the place, can't see through the haze 
Chop down all of them dirty ways, 

That's the price that you pay for selling lies to the youth 
No way, not ok, oh no way, not ok, hey 
Aint no one gonna break my stride 
Aint no one gonna pull me down 
Oh no, I got to keep on moving 
Stay alive
