Maher Zain Awaken

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

Ooh 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

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 bought

We went to London, Paris and Costa Del Sol

We made sure we were seen in the most exclusive shops

Yes we felt so very satisfied!

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

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

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 became individuals 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? [3x]

Ooh 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

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 (ourselves)
