"Late Night In Zion" as written by and Matthew Miller Aaron Dugan....
We're the reflection of imperfection,
We come from the infinite place of limatation.
Rejoice in these days, make our corrections,
We're the completion.

Lights out,
I'm down for the count,
I can't get up, and
Meanwhile the enemy schemes to spoil your stuff,
And the legs of the king are taggled up in a rut,
Fallen pieces, lost sparks, hearts cut.

We're not alone in the madness,
If we're here, the so are you,
Deepest caverns underground,
We've been taken for the truth,
Scraped my knees on the hurdles, face down in a puddle.

Only one will get us out of this mess,
The one that put us here.
I got a spear driven through my ear,
Can't you hear the sound, crystal clear, crystals crashing chandliers.
Long for brooks of water like a deer.

A man is just a man,
Full of faults and weakness,
4 am, jerusalem all alone and speechless.
And night time, no bodies home, roam streets in darkness.
I feel I'm just a man, flesh and bones, homeless.

A man is just a man,
Full of faults and weakness,
4 am, jerusalem all alone and speechless.
And night time, no bodies home, roam streets in darkness.
I feel I'm just a man, flesh and bones, homeless.

Planting seeds, they won't sink in.
I'm dried up, like the desert earth, how do these seeds give birth.
Water me down, liquify, so that I may not be cursed.
From one into a billion disperse.

Wisdom rains like water from the heavens to below.
Crush my earth, seeds grow, gardens starts to grow.
You know you gotta rise, although you like to flow.
You can't keep staring out the window.

Earth, water, wind, fire we stay low while getting higher.
Spark in night, a fight, tireously.
While yidden lighten loads.
Fly alive, weep, wail, change, grounded out inside.
Energized by my last thought as children pass me by.

Rise, to the occassion.
Keep these hearts all blazin.
Build your life on a river of wax.
Melt into space, we've been here since the beginning, not going away.
Not going away.....

A man is just a man,
Full of faults and weakness,
4 am, jerusalem all alone and speechless.
And night time, no bodies home, roam streets in darkness.
I feel I'm just a man, flesh and bones, homeless.

    General Commenti just gotta give u guys the correct lyrics to this song..you are butchering a beautiful song..
    1st of all...it's "lights out, I'm down for the count, and can't get up, meanwhile the enemy screams the boy is stuck, while the legs of the king are dangling in a rut ,broken peices lost sparks hearts cut"......
    2nd--" It's FOR I AM jeruselum all alone and speechless"...
    3rd--" it's " earth,water,wind,fire we stay low while gettin higher,spark igniter, fighting tired,stay wired enlighten loads, fly alive,weep,wail,chant,cry let out a sigh,energized,give out my last dime, life shouldn't pass me by"
    not tryin to be anal or anything but you need to know the REAL lyrics to understand the song.

    General Commentam i the only one who loves this song?
    it's beautiful. depressive but so full of hope...

    "A man is just a man,
    Full of faults and weakness,
    4 am, jerusalem all alone and speechless.
    And night time, no bodies home, roam streets in darkness.
    I feel i'm just a man, flesh and bones, homeless."

    and

    "Planting seeds, they won't sink in.
    I'm dried up, like the desert earth, how do these seeds give birth.
    Water me down, liquify, so that I may not be cursed.
    From one into a billion disperse."

    in my opinion this lines represents the hope of a man who fills alone in the world.

    and many more. this lyrics are very rich.

    General Commentahwell when going through the lyrics i felt it wasnt right, till i saw feef's correction. i think theres more to this song tho, "earth, water, wind, fire" "planting seeds that won't sink in" i mean is matisyahu just naming the 4 elements as a part of his rhyming scheme or is he schemeing this rhyme to name those elements. and it should be obvious this man is trying to plant seeds in his listeners, but these one's áre supposed to sink in and rise to the heavens.. anyways love the music!
    Bless
