    "Jerusalem" -- Matisyahu

    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

    Three thousand 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

    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 And 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 see that's not the way to be

    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

    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

    Caught up in these ways and the worlds gone crazy 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 okay, oh no way, not okay, hey Ain't no one gonna break my stride, ain't no one gonna pull me down Oh no, I got to keep on moving, stay alive

    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

    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, Jerusalem

    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

    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
