[AISHA]

You think I'm an evil terrorist

And you've read so much news

I guess it must be so

But still I cannot see

If the terrorist is me:

How can there be so much that you don't know?

You - don't - know...

 

You think you own whatever land you blow up

Tripoli is just a dead trophy you can claim

But I know every Man and Woman and Child

Has a life, has a spirit, has a name

 

You think the only people who are people

Are the people who look and think like you

But if you walk the footsteps of Hagar

You'll learn things - you never knew - you never knew

 

Have you ever heard the wolf cry to the crescent moon

Or asked the Hyacinth Macaws why they sing?

Can you sing with all the voices of Muhammad?

Can you pray with all the colors of Allah?

Can you pray with all the colors of Allah?

 

Come slide down the sand dunes of the desert

Come smell the sunsweet saffron of Iran

Come roll like oil drums all around you

And for once, never wonder what they're worth

The desert storm martyrs are my brothers

The Sunnis and Shias are my friends

And we are all connected to each other

In a circle, in a hoop that never ends

 

How high does Burj Khalifa grow?

If you tear it down, then you'll never know

 

And you'll never hear the wolf cry to the crescent moon

For whether we are white or copper skinned

We need to sing with all the voices of Muhammad

We need to pray with all the colors of Allah

 

You can own the Earth and still

All you'll own is earth until

You can pray with all the colors of Allah
