Between my shadow and my soul

DiVisions


Wa'tasimoo the Holy Book reads
A rope brought down by the blessed Jibraeel,
Come families, Shia, Sunni, those on the fence
Lets sing in unison, hold each other's hands

Where is the humanity in our human outlook


Soon after the Prophet's demise Husayn was killed,
Armies and soldiers, power just deceives
Minarets inspire fear and wine drunk after Maghrib
Keep to the basics, brother, Halaal and Tayyib

Where is the humanity in our human outlook


I'm a judgemental fundamentalist, loosen up, you say
A little leeway here and there, keeps you on your way
I'm scared, for sure, I keep wanting more,
Ideals and principles and justice just for all
