My Homeland..... (jerusalem By Matisyahu)

Jerusalem if I forget you
Fire not gonna come from my 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 our spoils along the way
We've been traveling from state to state
And we don't understand what they say
3,000 years with no place to be
And they want us to give up our milk and honey

Rebuild the temple and our 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
We come over seas, yes we'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 world's gone craze
Don't you know it's just a phase
A case of the Simon says
If I forget my words then they won't penetrate
Babylon burning in the place, I can't see through the haze
Chop down all of them dirty ways
That's the price you pay for telling 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 gotta keep on moving
Stay Alive,
