Matisyahu – Hard Way lyrics

Who's gonna quench your thirst now?
Who can satiate?
Something can escape
Who's gonna quench your thirst now?
Who can satiate?
Something can escape
Uh, uh, uh, uh, yeah
I, uh, uh

And I'm not okay, and I can not stay
When the trees go barren and the sky goes gray
And the medicine's gone and the dog has shade
And the hurricane hits and there's no barricades
In my bed I lay but I'm wide awake
Staring into the darkness, pain won't fade
And my mind will rest, but let me follow in his hollow cave
Rise from the dust, I will rise from the grave
I rise from the grave!

Who am I to say?
I know nothing it seems
Until it's way too late
I'm learning this the hard way!
Who am I to say?
I know nothing it seems
Until it's way too late
I'm learning this the hard way!
Learning this the hard way!

Time to send it down
Crushed up in the ground
Broken kingdoms come
Crashing all around
Palace made of glass
Start that with my eyes
So afraid of change
Don't do anything rash
Now I need my saint more than ever before
Yeah, it might be right
Open up the door!
Everyone's wake on a long night
Everyone's got an opinion
But put it in a song
And let me keep on living!

Who am I to say?
I know nothing it seems
Until it's way too late
I'm learning this the hard way!
Who am I to say?
I know nothing it seems
Until it's way too late
I'm learning this the hard way!
Learning this the hard way!
Who am I to say?
I know nothing it seems
Until it's way too late
I'm learning this the hard way!
Learning this the hard way!
Learning this the hard way!

Seize your cage
You're a slave, you wouldn't have it any other way
And besides, filled it up that way
Who's gonna make you happy?
When you're your own worst enemy
Who's gonna make you happy?
