King Without a Crown
Matisyahu Lyrics


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
Fight with all of my might and get these demons to flee
Hashem's rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe
Out of darkness comes light, twilight unto the heights
Crown Heights burnin' up all through till midnight
Said, thank you to my God, now I finally got it right
And I'll fight with all of my heart, and all a' my soul, and all a' my might

What's this feeling?
My love will rip a hole in the ceiling
Givin' myself to you from the essence of my being
Sing to my god all these songs of love and healing
Want Moshiach now so it's time we start revealing

What's this feeling?
My love will rip a hole in the ceiling
Givin' myself to you from the essence of my being
Sing to my God all these songs of love and healing
Want Moshiach now

Strip away the layers and reveal your soul
Got to 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
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 its bound to overflow
If you're drowning in the water's 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, you keep fallin' down
You really want to live but can't get rid of your frown
Tried to reach unto the heights and wound bound down on the ground
Given up your pride and the you heard a sound
Out of night comes day and out of day comes light
Nullified to the One like sunlight in a ray,
Makin' room for his love and a fire gone blaze
Makin' room for his love and a fire gone blaze

What's this feeling?
My love will rip a hole in the ceiling
Givin' myself to you from the essence of my being
Sing to my God all these songs of love and healing
Want Moshiach now so it's time we start revealing

What's this feeling?
My love will rip a hole in the ceiling
Givin' myself to you from the essence of my being
Sing to my God all these songs of love and healing
Want Moshiach now

And see, I lift up my eyes where my help come from
And I seen it circling around from the mountain
Thunder!
You feel it in your chest
You keep my mind at ease and my soul at rest
You're not vexed

When I look to the sky where my help come from
And I've seen it circling around from the mountain
Thunder!
You feel it in your chest

@wisterV it's a multi part song with different points of view.

First he's singing of his love for his God and and how important God is to himself and what God does for him.

But then the second part is a message of how to find God. 'You're a slave to yourself and you don't even know.' 'Got to give yourself up and then you become whole' 'make room for His love and a fire gone blaze.' 'Ask Hashem for His mercy and He'll throw you a rope'

The 'king without a crown' is the person without God in their life 'like a King without a crown you keep falling down'

So yeah, he's both worshiping and proselytizing.

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

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
Fight with all of my might and get these demons to flee
Hashem's rays fire blaze burn bright and I believe
Out of darkness comes light, twilight unto the heights
Crown Heights burnin' up all through till midnight
Said, thank you to my God, now I finally got it right
And I'll fight with all of my heart, and all a' my soul, and all a' my might

Yeah, the studio version is nice, but this right here is human experience on full display. That feels like someone having a psychological breakthrough and a reconciliation with their faith and love of music. This is his unrestrained self on display for all to see and then you can sense the people in the crowd connecting with his authenticity just like we are listening to it like 14 years later. This track is a musical treasure and I'm so glad they recorded it!

This man is actually just playing it up in order to sell music. Never the less good stuff! 👍

Amen brother 🙏

Beloved Disciple

Amen bro. As a Christian this song hits and moves me on so many levels

Definitely a mighty hymn to Yah

@scottr397 proselytizing would be the action of attempting to convert someone from one religion, belief, or opinion to another.
He is not trying to get us on the J-Team,
Just showing his love and devotion.

Man, as a kid I didn't understand a thing he was saying but I loved the melody. Now as a grown man, these lyrics are absolutely beautiful.
