Awaken – Maher Zein

We were given so many prizes

We changed the desert into oasis

We built buildings of different lenghts 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

 

Oh.. I’m walking with my head lowered in shame from my place

I’m walking with my head lowered from my face

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 face

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 Costa Delso

We made show we were seen inthe most exlusive 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 face

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 face

Yes, it’s easy to blame everything on the west

When in fact all focus should be on ourselves

 

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

 

Reff :

Is He satisfied?

Is Allah satisfied?

Is Allah satisfied?

Is Allah satisfied?
