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

In the ancient days, we will return with no delay
Picking up the bounty and the spoils on our way
Weve been traveling from state to state
And them dont understand what they say

Three thousand years with no place to be
And they want me to give up my milk and honey
Dont you see its 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 its 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 its 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 couldnt choke me

I will not lie down, I will not fall asleep
And they come overseas, yes theyre trying to be free
Erase the demons out of our memory
Change your name and your identity

Afraid of the past 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 its 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 its supposed to do

Caught up in these ways and the worlds gone crazy
Dont you know its just a phase, case of the Simon says
If I forget the truth then my words wont penetrate
Babylon burning in the place, cant see through dark haze

Chop down all of them dirty ways
Thats 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 its 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 its 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 its 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 its supposed to do
