Matisyahu lyrics : "Jerusalem (Out Of Darkness Comes Light)"

[Chorus]
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Fire not gonna come from me tongue.

Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Let my right hand forget what itâ??s supposed to do.


In the ancient days, we will return with no delay
Picking up the bounty and the spoils on our way
Weâ??ve been traveling from state to state

And them donâ??t understand what they say
3, 000 years with no place to be
And they want me to give up my milk and honey

Donâ??t you see, itâ??s not about the land or the sea
Not the country but the dwelling of his majesty


[Chorus]
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Fire not gonna come from me tongue.

Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Let my right hand forget what itâ??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 couldnâ??t choke me
I will not lie down, I will not fall asleep
They come overseas, yes theyâ??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


[Chorus]
Jerusalem, if I forget you,

Fire not gonna come from me tongue.
Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Let my right hand forget what itâ??s supposed to do.


Caught up in these ways, and the worlds gone craze
Donâ??t you know itâ??s just a phase

Case of the Simon says
If I forget the truth then my words wonâ??t penetrate
Babylon burning in the place, canâ??t see through the haze

Chop down all of them dirty ways,
Thatâ??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

[Chorus]

Jerusalem, if I forget you,
Fire not gonna come from me tongue.
Jerusalem, if I forget you,

Let my right hand forget what itâ??s supposed to do.
