Ya Hey
Vampire Weekend Lyrics

Oh, sweet thing
Zion doesn't love you
And Babylon don't love you
But you love everything
Oh, you saint
America don't love you
So I could never love you
In spite of everything

In the dark of this place
There's the glow of your face
There's the dust on the screen
Of this broken machine
And I can't help but feel
That I've made some mistake
But I let it go
Ya Hey

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
Ut Deo, Ya Hey
Ut Deo, Deo

Oh, the motherland don't love you
The fatherland don't love you
So why love anything?
Oh, good God
The faithless they don't love you
The zealous hearts don't love you
And that's not gonna change

All the cameras and files
All the paranoid styles
All the tension and fear
Of a secret career
And I can't help but think
That you've seen the mistake
But you let it go
Ya Hey

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
You say "I am what I am"
But who could ever live that way?
Ut Deo, Ya Hey
Ut Deo, Deo

Outside the tents, on the festival grounds
As the air began to cool, and the sun went down
My soul swooned, as I faintly heard the sound
Of you spinning "Israelites"
Into "19th Nervous Breakdown"

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am what I am"
But who could ever live that way?
Ut Deo, Ya Hey
Ut Deo, Deo

Through the fire and through the flames
You won't even say your name
Only "I am that I am"
But who could ever live that way?
(Ya Hey)
Ut Deo, Ya Hey
Ut Deo, Deo

Let Yah Arise

"Live for yourself, you will live in vain. Live for others, you will live again."
Pass it on.

Micahyah 4:1-3

1 But in the Last Days it will come to pass that the mountain; promotion, of The House of Yahweh will be established in the chief of the nations. It will be raised above all congregations; and all peoples will eventually flow to it.

2 And many nations will come and say; Come, and let us go up to the mountain; uplifting, of Yahweh, and to the House of the Father of Yaaqob, and He will teach us of His Ways, and we will walk in His Paths. Because the Laws will depart from Zion, and the Word of Yahweh from Yerusalem.

3 And He will judge between many people, and rebuke strong nations afar off; and they will beat their swords into plowshares, and their spears into pruninghooks. Nation will not lift up a sword against nation, nor will they learn war anymore.

Sometimes we take for granted the life we have here as we are distracted by things that pollute our minds more than cleanse them. The sun rises each day and the moon provides light for the darkness, these two simple facts carry an abundance of love not only for the world in which those things were made for but also everything that is here. Us. Everything. The world continues on and on, with or without us. It's cycle continues and continues and it never stops. This world is a creation that is in perfect harmony with itself and that harmony never ceases, that is love for the world and its life. We are flesh, nevertheless the complexity of our bodies and how they work day in and day out, giving us what we need, taking out what we don't need, and also in a continual cycle just as the universe around us is, in love until there is no breath of life for our bodies of course. And who provides that breath of life? The Father that sits in Heaven. We are forever. We were created with love and care as was this world and thats something amongst many other things that shouldn't be forgotten as we are born into this world that is oversaturated with meaningless things that occupy our minds, things that stem from evil for the only purpose of distracting us from the wonder and beauty that life really holds. All the media, fear, negativity, vanity, it does absolutely nothing for us but spread corruption on ourself if we pay mind to it. That all means nothing but darkness and corruption and is brought to us by evil. Nonetheless, Light and darkness were created because you were created to learn these things; peace and destruction were created because you were created to learn these things. Behold! It has come to pass that all these things were done.
Drop down, you heavens, from above, and let the skies pour down Righteousness. Let the earth be released; let Salvation spring up, and let Righteousness grow together. Yahweh has declared it! Let go of vanity. We gotta choose life in the face of it, we gotta choose to pay attention to life rather than the darkness that is meant to take away life and our appreciation towards it. The grace of life in front of us is what should be consumed, the sympathy to help others feel good about life. We gotta have an outlook of love and understanding for the world because thats what we don't have much of, love and understanding. We have division because of greed and greed because of lack of love and lack of love because of power that is exhibited in vain, without love. But love is harmony. The creation of the universe has been in harmony since the beginning. So we must become one, we must harmonize with the world each day with gratitude for it and care for all. The division of color is a man made idea which has been allowed to flourish by the wrongdoings and outlooks of man. The disharmony of mankind is the "glitch in the matrix", a lack of faith which in turn makes one weak in the face of evil causing the battle between light and dark. We can alter the mishap of allowing evil to speak or act for us which has lead us to the darkness we see today in this world. There is no benefit on the path that is dark, only misguidance and deceitful emotion.

You are loved, even if you may not  realize it. The world around you loves you each day, even if the world around us doesn't want us, we are loved by what it provides by Him, because we are here for His Loving Plan, not anyone else's. So spread love without looking for reward and resist evil, so that we all may have harmony with one another, in love and understanding. Love your neighbor and do unto another as you would like done unto you, no matter who it is. Live in joy for the memories of those that have passed. Love your Creator, always and give thanks to the Father who sits in heaven, always. Spread love and His truth that is His light, and resist the adversary, always.

All of us have the Most High in us, TAP IN, HEED HIM. Light and darkness, good and evil, love and hate, these things and more were created so that we may know and learn of these things. So we may know the evil sin brings and also the good righteousness brings so that we may find the strength in reflection, through Faith, to turn away from evil and be better to others when we speak and act, to realize the only path and purpose we were created for, for the Plan of the Creator of everything, in Righteousness and Compassion. And all good things come from Yahweh, so you must reverence if you will. When the end comes soon and a new beginning is nigh', will there be forgiveness and mercy for you? I ask myself the same question and yet I do know, His mercy and everlasting love is on me as I am able to sleep a good night and awake to another day in this life with the capability to love, and the capability to have faith, and the blessed feeling of loving the beauty the Heavenly Father has created in this world. Despite our past, through His son, Yahshua Messiah and in truth, we are born again and set free! We are passing through life, not time, but we all must suffer for a time, so wake up today, love the day, live for the Father, one day at a time, no matter the matter, let's do our best and stay in faith, keep His Commandments, studying and learning more of Him so that we are ready for His banquet when He comes. He will pick you right back up if you are down, trust that even in the toughest of times, He is there with you to build you up better than you were before. No need to fret, no matter the matter, in patient endurance and trust in Him, we are made pure and of the light with the undeserved forgiveness upon us, we can turn from evil and be protected under his wings. Be aware of the times we are in, let His Spirit be your guide and let the Spirit be your strength, that is, His Holy Spirit, stay true and do not be provoked to the point of regret. Remember that and let love flow. Protect and feed the children and the poor. Man does not live by bread alone but by every word that proceeds out of the mouth of the Creator! Those that have ears to hear, let them hear! Those that have eyes to see, let them see! Turn to the Messiah, the One He has sent, for through Him, all evil is destroyed! Do not be subject to lies and deceit, do not be a crash test dummy in their operations of deceit in trying to stick man made fluids into our flesh, there is only Salvation in Yahweh, through Yahshua Messiah and the Holy Spirit! There is only Salvation and Power in Yahweh and nothing can deliver us from death, and from death INTO LIFE except Yahweh! Turn away from doing evil, In all things you do reverence the Source of the Creation and do all things with love and righteousness for the Glory of the Creator(not the glory of men) and the Glory due to Him, do so through the example set by His Son Yahshua Messiah and live with the Holy Spirit within.

May YaHWeH bless your understanding and through His Son, Yahshua Messiah, may you all find truth in the past away from deceit, lies and willful ignorance so that we may experience His love, blessings and mercy and His only truth, forever. We don't have much time here to see, hear and wake up. Ignorance is not bliss for that "bliss" that comes from ignorance is an illusion and therefore, an imagination of happiness that stems from the branch of the evil one. There is man, and there is woman, know our place on this earth mankind! The philosophies that are flipping the world upside down today are wrong and immoral. Don't let them compromise originality in us. Do not forget where you have came from, do not forget the Source of all life and the mercy and gift of Salvation that is upon us for He wants you to be saved, reverence His Loving Name. Peace be unto you all. Choose life and love life, also honor those who have passed by living and serving others in happiness and righteousness, for by serving others, we serve The Heavenly Father, and by choosing to embrace life rather than the things that take away life, we grow in His love and ever closer to His Plan that has been established since the very beginning. All Glory be to Yahweh through His Son, Yahshua Messiah, the High Priest and King of Kings, who willingly suffered death for the purpose of bringing Salvation to the people of the world! The House of Yahweh is here, and it will never cease from living. The key to love is understanding. Be wary of deceit, be wary and love Him so that you may be able to discern right from wrong. Serve Him by serving others and do not be subject to the philosophies filled with deceit of the men of this age, do not be deceived by the Vatican. The masonic order is in quick sand and will crash very soon. Israyl and Yahdah will be renewed. His Laws, Statutes and Commandments are to be heeded and loved. Come soon, Yahshua Messiah! All Praise and Glory be to the Heavenly Father, Yahweh! Reverence His loving Name, HALLELUYAHWEH!

Kiyotaka —

This song has become in one of my all time favorites...

Musically speaking, I think that this song is simply genius (although the bass made pretty much all of the job), it has something that makes me feel several emotions at the same time.

Philosophically speaking, It's kinda sad, because you know it... although you don't want to admit that after you live your life plenty and full of love or vice versa, when the time comes, there is nothing else but nothingness and darkness.
But somehow, while you're alive you can experience some things that makes you believe in something. Something that is beyond of the human capability to comprehend the existence of God or whatsoever sort of celestial matter that is immersed into the infinity.
But, when sadly you're trying to believe, but you simply can not anymore... and you just can blame all of the circumstances that you have passed through...
Guess what is always there for you...
Yes, those sound frequencies that makes our lives, at least... a little bit more transcendentals in the space-time of the universe.


The bible pretty much shows us he is an ego-maniacal god of war and tyranny who if not obeyed, claims he will send you into eternal torture. He rules via fear and intimidation as tyrants do. Yet he has managed to garner billions of followers on this world who give him tribute in the form of worship, prayer and sacrifice, ie: energy, and they all believe he is a merciful and loving god, when the facts say otherwise. 

Who else could pull off a stunt like this of such enormity but the Father of Lies himself?  SATAN. Of course he would let it go because the more you will burn in hell for another transgression you present. Well that's just my take. Former Catholic now a Humanist. I read the bible and the koran and if you read them with an open mind you can pretty much come to the logical conclusion of who would rule people like this? Also logic and common sense are the enemy of the ruling elite who love keeping a shroud of darkness over the people they control. No wonder there is no peace in the middle east.
 Imagine there's no countries
It isn't hard to do
Nothing to kill or die for
And no religion too
Imagine all the people
Living life in peace.. JOHN LENNON

Majority might not agree, but I think this is the best track that Vampire Weekend has ever put out. Absolutely love it.


There's about twenty of us, group of friends and girlfriends. Different kinds of people with different musical preferences. There is one song though that we somehow magically all love. Somebody always puts it on at 2AM at a houseparty and we all yell "YAAAAA HEY YAAAA HEY" like animals. This time next year it'll be 10 years of us bonding over this song. I agree, this song is very special.


Honestly I'm right there with you--tied with Unbelievers for me but the tone in this one is just such a goddamn vibe.


One of the best tracks anyone has ever put out :)
