Matisyahu Lyrics

Chop ‘Em Down

[Chorus:]
From the forest itself comes the handle for the ax
Split this wilderness listen up this ain’t where it’s at
Clear a path so that you could find your way back
Chop ‘em down, chop ‘em down; chop ‘em down, chop ‘em down

Time flies by like clouds passing in the sky lifetimes hear and gone like
the blink of an eye
March through this desert one-step at a time, march through the
desert one step at a time

[Chorus:]
From the forest itself comes the handle for the ax,
Drop the staff Moshe rabbainu split the ocean in half,
March through the desert this ain’t where it’s at
Chop ‘em down, Chop ‘em down

Patterns engraved not so easily erased, still wandering trying to find
your place
Playing the game I see pain on your face now a day’s the yiddin like
children sold as slaves
Strange ways running through the maze, strange ways always lost in
the desert trying to
find to find your place lost in the desert trying to find your place

[Chorus]

Joseph descended sold as a slave,
thrown into a dungeon cause he wouldn’t be swayed
Interpreted pharaoh’s dreams and Egypt was saved
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/matisyahu-lyrics/chop-_Em-down-lyrics.html ]
stock piled food for seven years of rain
then sold to all the nations when the drought came
Joseph rose to power and the yiddin stayed
They started to build and success was made
Pharos getting worried let’s make them pay bound in chains
First born was sent down to their graves
Moshe was saved and a prince he was raised
Hashem spoke to him hears a message to relay
Take my Nation from Mitzrayim (Egypt) I see the suffering
Hard hearts ego breaks take sparks and make way
Trail blaze through the wasteland breaking the chains
Last generation just the ruminants
March through the desert leaving footprints
Peel off the lid this is just plastic, get into it, get into it
Heavy hitter stepping solid never quitter jump into the ocean before it
split got a jump into it
Rip through Egypt rip through it,
get into it, 600,000 witnessed it, no you didn’t forget
In the spiritual desert things are not what they seem
snakes camouflaged just fit the scene
Put your faith in a mirage it’s just a smoke screen
The king is sitting on his thrown of glory

Close My Eyes

No matter where I am bless me with all your light,
I’m on the train brain vexed connect and the I feel blessed
Whether day or night I’m on the street midtown New York City
Let me stop praise your name I need room to breath
I want to feel your peace; I got to feel your ease
Screaming’ down on my, because my insides bleed
My hearts on fire witnessed all the vampires
Yes I came hear on a to inspire

[Chorus:]
Close my eyes and take a ride inside
Feel the breeze blow by yo I’m getting’ you high
Bob Nesta said it best everything will be all right
Introspect connect the sect’s and let this music make you fly

I listened’ to the wind whistle in a channel of sound
my ear like a vacuum begin to boom
{ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/matisyahu-lyrics/close-my-eyes-lyrics.html }
glisten like the sun heats a drum,
cursing’ all of them doomed rising’ up from the ground
growing full like the moon
Said I’m planting like a seed yes sir
them get up and get up and grow and I’m firm like a tree,
well I know that’s all I know,
that some their colors wonderful like it was a rainbow
Let me tell you one time if you didn’t know

[Chorus]

Moonlight enlighten my way at twilight
from the heights of my roof I send praise then poof
I’m looking up at the night
and ask for help to get up and get up and get up and get up and get it right

Jerusalem you take me high make me fly like arrow in the sky

King Without A Crown

I said, ?You’re all that I have and you’re all that I need”
Each and every day I pray to get to know you please
I want to be close to you, yes, I’m so hungry
You’re like water for my soul when it gets thirsty

Without you there’s no me, you’re the air that I breathe
Sometimes the world is dark and I just can’t see
With these demons surround all around to bring me down to negativity
But I believe, yes I believe, I said, ?I believe?

I’ll stand on my own two feet, won’t be brought down on one knee
I’ll fight with all of my might and get these demons to flee
Hashem’s rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe
Hashem’s rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe

Out of darkness comes light, a twilight unto the heights
Crown heights burnin’ up all through the twilight
Said, “I thank you” to my God, now I finally got it right
And I’ll fight with all of my heart and all my soul and all my might

What’s this feeling? My love will rip a hole through the ceiling
I give myself to you from the essence of my being
An’ I sing to my God, these songs of love an’ healing
I want Mashiach now, so it’s time we start revealing

What’s this feeling?

Me no want no Sinsemilla, that would only bring me down
Burn away my brain, no way, my brain is too compound
Elevated my soul, you’re a flying my sound
Like the sun of a sun ray burning up through a cloud

Say, Torah food for my brain, let it rain till I drown
Thunder, let the blessings come down
Say, Torah food for my brain, let it rain till I drown

Strip away the layers and reveal your soul
Give yourself up and then you become whole
You’re a slave to yourself and you don’t even know
You want to live the fast life but your brain moves slow

If you’re trying to stay high, then you’re bound to stay low
[ From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/matisyahu-lyrics/king-without-a-crown-lyrics.html ]
You want God but you can’t deflate your ego
If you’re already there, then there’s nowhere to go
If you’re cup’s already full, then it’s bound to overflow

If you’re drowning out in the waters and you can’t stay afloat
Ask Hashem for mercy and he’ll throw you a rope
You’re looking for help from God, you say he couldn’t be found
Looking up to the sky and searchin’ beneath the ground

Like a king without his crown, yes, I wanna get down
A king without his crown, yes, you keep fallin’ down
You really want to live but can’t get rid of your frown
Try reach him to the heights and wound down, down, down, down

Say what’s this feeling? My love will rip a hole through the ceiling
I give myself to you from the essence of my being
An’ I sing to my God, these songs of love an’ healing
I want Mashiach now, and it’s time we start revealing

Said, ?I’m reelin’ him in, I reel him in
Where ya been, where ya been for so long for so long?
It’s hard to stay strong
I’ve been livin’ in Galus for like too long?
I said, ?Where ya been, a where ya been for so long for so long??

What’s this feeling? My love will rip a hole through the ceiling
I give myself to you from the essence of my being
An’ I sing to my God, these songs of love an’ healing
I want Mashiach now, and it’s time we start revealing

What’s this feeling? My love will rip a hole through the ceiling
I give myself to you from the essence of my being
An’ I sing to my God, these songs of love an’ healing
I want Mashiach now, and it’s time we start revealing

Said, ?I’m reelin’ him in, where ya been, where ya been??
I said, ?I reelin’ him in, where ya been for so long? Oh
Where ya been for so long? It’s hard to stay strong
Been livin’ in exile for?

One Day

Sometimes I lay under the moon
And I thank God I’m breathin’
Then I pray don’t take me soon
‘Cause I am here for a reason

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know someday it’ll all turn around because

All my life I been waitin’ for
I been prayin’ for, for the people to say
That we don’t want to fight no more
They’ll be no more wars
And our children will play, one day

It’s not about win or lose ’cause we all lose
When they feed on the souls of the innocent blood
Drenched pavement keep on movin’
Though the waters stay ragin’
( From: http://www.elyrics.net/read/m/matisyahu-lyrics/one-day-lyrics.html )

And in this life you may lose your way
It might drive you crazy
But don’t let it phase you, no way

Sometimes in my tears I drown
But I never let it get me down
So when negativity surrounds
I know someday it’ll all turn around because

All my life I been waitin’ for
I been prayin’ for, for the people to say
That we don’t want to fight no more
They’ll be no more wars
And our children will play, one day

One day this all will change
Treat people the same
Stop with the violence down with the hate
One day we’ll all be free and proud
To be under the same sun
Singing songs of freedom like
