Worried that I’m detached
Truth is it isn’t an arduous task
And yet I’d like to reattach
Just keeping saying
Tomorrow’s another day
When today should be the place
Where I begin
But the end
Looks like it ain’t any further than the starting line
But I don’t want to wait ‘til I start to flat line
Hypnotized, got to revive, reignite, this can’t be my life!
Inside of me’s a flame
Been lying ’til I’m lame,
Have I been chasin’ fame? No!
Riya’in all the way but now I’ve gotta come back home
Before the door of life starts to close
Oh man I’m stuck here
But struggling isn’t going to pull me
out of the quicksand
I gotta reach out
Let them take my hand
God’s help sent, or who’s else?
Bring out the paddle
Don’t think, just do,
I can hear them coming,
Charge them — go, go, go!
Charge to 200!
I don’t need dollars
When I’m a hundred miles from home
I need dinner and a ride
I need strength and a path and direction
Relay, replay Hadith of the Prophet
Got a dua in my pocket
Wa Allahu Samee’ ul ‘Aleem
I’m losing strength but I’m losing sleep
Gotta get back up on the saddle
Riding horses home, valiant like the sahabah
Awaken life-restoring paddles,
if I’m not done yet
I believe He thinks I’m worth a second or two to repent
450, Charge the paddles
I’m wide awake and finally breathing
In death I received my reason
Gasp as I am savouring oxygen
Not one inside convenience
No, this reason isn’t for a single season
But for all to come
No one stands by my side
Except a soul God set forth
Carried over the defibrillator
Needed God to gift the crash cart
And thereby, I am alive
Someone was sent to move
The winds to move
The clouds to gather
Moisture to water
Let it rain, let it shower
Us in Allah’s Mercy.
Water in my bones,
Water cleanse my heart
It’s black and hard as stone.
Water, if God wills, oh God please let it
Oh God please let me
Make up for this please
This won’t be my last plea
So I won’t say it’s all I’ll ever ask
Not a single request could be my last
And yes for eternity
Yet, you knew that before I came to be
‘Cause it was you
Who said Kun! Fayakun!
Be, and it is!
And I am patient, because I have trust.
I am kind, because I received rahma.
I am sincerely successful, because Allah loves me.
I am peaceful, because I have faith.
Swallow anger and settle ashes,
Water the flame.
Support sadness and wipe away that anguish,
Water the dying flower, she is weak,
Don’t let her lose a single leaf.
