"Ancient Lullaby" as written by and Matthew Miller Aaron Dugan....
Mist rising on the horizon
Listenin with my ears and listening with my eyes and
Listenin until we've ridden the mud from the parasite
Listenin until our hearts start to glisten, realize
Share the vision and my rhythms and we'll melt the ice
Start sizzling, spilling from the ceiling,___, dripping drizzling
Close to the broken-hearted, them crushed in spirit
Redeem the soul of your servant
Seek his? Pursue it?
Keep the sparkle in your eyes
O You know, we're all gon die
Like flyin
Soul times?
For the times when we'll stay unified
The eyes of Hashem are to the righteous and he hears their
Soul cry, like an ancient lullaby.
Jerusalem breathes, brining me ease from the Brooklyn squeeze,
Dirty ___? bring ya down to ya knees
Trap me like a lion, ___ ? \"leave me be\"
When they come with their disease to drag us into the street,
My law's still pure, you can't take that from me,
3000 yrs until this last century,
Impossible to break the seal of the High Priest,
Yo,
I say
The branches on the trees gon bow to these
Swaying to the melodies
Craving for the slaves to bring redemption please
I am you, you are me
No more leaders, we must flea
We want see God in our enemy,
Soul cry, like an ancient lullaby

    General CommentThis song got a hell of a rythm. I saw 311 and Matisyahu Aug 2nd 2007 and Matisyahu brought his 2-3 year old son out on stage with earplugs and he was dancing around on stage. He looked confused. It was pretty funny. Also Matisyahu came out in the middle of a 311 song and started rapping, that was pretty cool too.

    General CommentI can hear so many influences in this song, mostly Bone Thugz and the middle eastern sound, gotta love it. I think this song is about how we can get along as people if we make our identity in God as we commune together "bread dripping" or maybe dipping. My favorite line: "Impossible to break the seal of the High Priest," Matisyahu maybe waiting for the Messiah to come, but I'm grateful to know that Messiah as Jesus who is the High Priest, who has sealed our hearts with the Holy Spirit, for those who believe, with a seal that will never be broken. SO AWESOME!!! love this song.
