Matisyahu - Youth - Late Night In Zion - lyrics
We're the Reflection, of Imperfection.
We come from the infinite place of limitation.
Rejoice in these days, make a correction,
We're the completion.
Lights Out, down for the count, can't get up.
Meanwhile the enemy screams the boy is stuck,
And the legs of the king are dangling in a rut.
Falling pieces, lost sparks, hearts cut.
We're not alone in this madness, if we're here then so are you.
Deepest caverns underground,
We've been searching for the truth.
Scrape my knees on the hurdles, face down in a puddles
The only one who'll get us out of this mess,
The one who put us here.
I've got a spear driven through my ear.
Can't you hear the sound, crystal clear,
Pistols smashing chandeliers,
Long for brooks of water like the dear. (makes more sense as deer may be a typo)
A man is just a man, filled with faults and weakness.
4 AM, Jerusalem, all alone and speechless.
Nightime nobody's home, Roam streets of darkness.
I feel I'm just a man, flesh and bones homeless.
Planting Seeds, they won't sink in.
I'm dried up like the desert earth, how could these seeds give birth?
Water me down, liquefy, i will not be cursed.
From one into a billion disperse.
Wisdom reigns like water, from heaven to below.
Crush my earth, seeds grow, garden starts to grow.
You know you've got to rise, although you like to flow,
You can't keep staring out the window.
Earth, Water, Wind, Fire, we stay low while getting higher.
Spark igniter, fighting tired,
Stay wired, enlighten loads.
Stay alive, weep, wail, chant, cry, Let out a sigh.
Energized, give out my last dime, life shouldn't pass me by.
Rise to the occasion,
Keep these hearts all blazing,
build you're life of a river of wax,
Melt into space,
We've been here since the beginning,
Not going away.
