Matisyahu – Reservoir lyrics

I just wanna talk to you now
This is for the one
You kept me alive
And so I thank you

Moses is on his way down town
Yehoshua maintain'n the fountain
Right about now
I should be over Chicago lights out
The window
Levy breaks
Flow like diamonds
All these babies crying
Ideas flying round
It’s time to come down from the mountain
Welcome home
Just stick to the plan
But how can I
Be like the stars and sand
It's only man
Who commands
He put this one in our hands
Two tabs of stone I'm alone while these
Fans keep circling
Over the land
Like helicopter blades
I crave some breeze
Will you wait, wait for me, please
40 days and 40 nights
But I can't stand much more
So you think you understand
What’s pure and un pure
Now it's pouring
My soul on the floor
You think ya know so much
That I'm so out of touch
I tossed in the crutch
To the aish tamid
Now I walk with a limp
With a wound that bleeds
While all these animals feed
With their envy and greed
Small minds wanna see
They wanna chop this tree
Cut me down
Pressure to concede
And give in to what they believe is me
But I'm a fight, I'm a light, I'm the glory of the king
I'm the song that ya sing
The melody that ya bring
Sharp teeth
And venom that stings
Not gonna bring me to my knees
I'm a fish in this here sea
Evil eye won’t get at me
I just want to finish this thing

Not gonna bring me to my knees

I'm going down
Down to go up
From the pits to mitzrayem
From the dungeon to the kingdom
To my stage offerin'
Can't give up and won't give in
I am the blood of Jacob
And I’ll keep struggling
Like Joseph
My brothers wanna sell me out
I had the dream
Time to leave the doubt
Multi colored coat with blood on my sleeves
Best believe it ain't from no beasts
Got no car
I walked around this reservoir
This is David’s heart
Rainbow colored cry
From the end to the start

This is David’s heart
A rainbow colored cry from the end to the start
Phantoms and ghosts raise your glass and make a toast
This is for the one
Hakadosh baruch hu
What we been thru
Me and you
