Jerusalem, if I forgot you
Fire's not gonna come from my tongue

Jerusalem if I forgot you
Let me right hand forget what its supposed to do

In the ancient day
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 they don't understand what they say
3,000 years with no place to be
And they us to give up our milk and honey
Don't you see its not about the land or the sea
Not a country
But the dwelling of his majesty

Jerusalem, if I forgot you
Fire's not gonna come from my tongue
Jerusalem if I forgot you
Let me right hand forget what its supposed to do

Rebuild the Temple and the crown of glory
Years gone by, about 60
Burned in the oven in this century
And the gas tried to choke but it couldn't choke me

I would not lie down, not fall asleep
Them come overseas trying to be free
Erase the demons out of our memory
Change your name and your identity
Afraid of the past and a dark history
Why's everybody always chasing we?
Cut off the roots of your family tree
Don't you see, that's not the way to be

Caught up in these ways
The world's gone craze
Them don't know its just a phase
Case of the simon says
If I forget the truth
Then my words won't penetrate
Babylon burning in the haze

Can't see through the maze

Chop down all of them dirty ways
That's the price that you pay for selling lies to the youth
No way
Not ok
