Awaken Lyrics


We were given so many prizes
We changed the desert into oasis
We built buildings of different lengths and sizes
And we felt so very satisfied

We bought and bought we couldn’t stop buying
We gave charity to the poor ’cause we couldn’t stand their crying
We thought we paid our dues
But in fact to ourselves we’re just lying.. Ohhh

I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place
I’m walking with my head lowered from my race
Yes it’s easy to blame everything on the west
When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

We were told what to buy and we’d bought
We went to London, Paris and
We made show we were seen in the most exlusive shops
Yes we felt so very satisfied

[lyrics was taken from] We felt our money gave us infinite power
We forgot to teach our children about history and honor
We didn’t have any time to lose
When we were.. (were)
So busy feeling so satisfied

(Repeat Chorus 2x)

We became the visuals without a soul
Despite the heat our homes felt so empty and cold
To fill the emptiness we bought and bought
Maybe all the fancy cars and bling will make us feel satisfied

My dear brother and sister it’s time to change inside
Open your eyes don’t throw away what’s right aside
Before the day comes when there’s nowhere to run and hide
Now ask yourself ’cause Allah’s watching you

Is He satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied?
Is Allah satisfied? Ohh..

(Repeat Chorus)
