Chop 'Em Down
Matisyahu Lyrics


Say from the forest itself comes the handle for the ax
Split this wilderness, listen, I'm not missing where it's at
Clear a path so that you could find your way back
Chop 'em down, chop 'em down chop 'em down, chop 'em down

Said time flies by like clouds passing in the sky
Lifetimes even gone in the blink of an eye
March through the desert one step at a time
March through the desert one step at a time

Said from the forest itself comes the handle for the ax
Drop the staff Moshe Rabbeinu split the ocean in half
March through the desert, this ain't where it's at
Said chop 'em down, Chop 'em down, chop 'em down, chop 'em down

Said patterns engraved not so easily erased
Still wandering trying to find your place
Playing the game I see pain on your face
Now a day's the Yidden like children sold as slaves
Strange ways running through the maze, strange ways always
Lost in the desert trying to find your way
Lost, lost in the desert trying to find your way

From the forest itself comes the handle for the ax
Split this wilderness, listen, I'm not missing where it's at
Clear a path so that you could find your way back
Said chop 'em down, chop 'em down chop 'em down, chop 'em down

Yosef descended sold as a slave
Thrown into a dungeon 'cause he wouldn't be swayed
Interpreted Pharaoh's dreams and Egypt was saved
Stockpiled food for seven years of rain
Sold to all the nations when the drought came
Yosef rose to power and the Yidden stayed
They started to build and success was made
Pharaoh is getting worried, let's make them pay
Bound in chains, firstborn was sent down to their graves
Moshe was saved and a prince he was raised
Hashem spoke to him, "here's a message to relay
Take my Nation from Mitzrayim I see the suffering"
Hard hearts ego breaks take sparks and make way
Trail blaze through the wasteland breaking the chains

Last generation just the remnants
Peel through the desert leaving footprints
Peel off the lid this is just plastic, lord
Get into it, get-get into it
Said heavy hitter stepping solid never quitter
Jump into the ocean before it split got a jump into it
Jump-jump into the ocean, jump into it
Rip-rip through Egypt rip through it
Six hundred thousand witnessed it, no you didn't forget
No you didn't forget
Rip-rip through Egypt rip through it
Said rip-rip through Egypt, yo

Said, in the spiritual desert things are not what they seem
Snakes camouflaged just to fit the scene
Put your faith in a mirage it's just a smokescreen
Just a smokescreen, just a smoke-
In the spiritual desert things are not what they seem
Snakes camouflaged just to fit in the scene
Put your faith in a mirage it's just a smokescreen
Took that path and you know you're in E-

@Steenkoud It's a reggae show, I'm not really sure if you're expecting heavy metal mosh pits or something, but most people there seem to be enjoying the music.
