    Jerusalem by Matisyahu

    [Chorus]

    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.

    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

    [chorus]

    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

    [chorus]

    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 dark 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

    [chorus]

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    Hope this helps! Have a nice day! :)
