Outlandish

Outlandish - Beyond Words

rate me

With my right foot first

I stepped into the holy mosque

Upon the cold white marble

Where day and night people sat worshippin', praying

Right and left the mosque being cleaned

Shinin' not a particle of dust

The carvings of marble, the plates of gold

The symmetry of the whole mosque

Yeah the largest of it all

The came the grandest of the whole

The big beautiful house of Allah

Covered with black cloth and gold leaf writin'

My life flashed passed me, the good and the bad

Such a feeling my brother, never ever felt I had

A special bondage to the almighty

A sudden chill in me

Lookin' around the large floor was filled with unity

Circling the beautiful house

Chanting, people sitting, prayin' for forgiveness

Prayin' to do better I witnessed

Takin' a deep breath, tears was runnin'

I ran around the black house, the ancient black house

Built by Ibrahim, peace be upon him, circlin' 24 no doubt

I got closer, as did my heart, as did my soul, amazing

How everyone had their attention only on worshippin'

All concerns forgotten, focused on prayin'

Forgettin' everything matters and happenings just giving

I looked up in the sky thanking Allah for this journey

Sayin': I swear I didn't schedule to be here this early

I thought I'd come here like pops in my forties and fifties

And the doe I paid for the ticket, was meant for some hobby

But who am I to say if I will be alive tomorrow

Or 20 years from now, will my health be able to follow

For a moment I pictured my self 6 feet deep

In the cemetery, my corps in the same white sheets

Allah holds the master plan and it's already written

The pens are withdrawn, the pages are dry... it's written!

Looking back on my life

Life that's gladly been given to me

Open my eyes and embrace the smile

Given to you & I

Con mi mano derecha abro la puerta

Mi madre me recibe con un periódico y una carta

Veo fotos de mi padre abatido por disparos

De momentos ya yo espero

Que mis lágrimas caigan, me preparo

Me sorprende que mis ojos estén secos y mi alma esté calmada

En mi cuerpo no hay dolor por una persona ya olvidada

With my right hand I open the door

My mom welcomes me with a newspaper and a letter

I see pictures of my father fetched down by shots

In that moment I'm only waiting

For my tears to fall, I'm prepared

But to my surprise my eyes are dry and my soul is calm

In my whole body there's no sign of grief for a forgotten person

Staring outside, there was something I realized

Tomorrow the sun will rise, and together

Will see the beauty of eternity

Salgo a caminar y despejar mis pensamientos

Lo normal sería sufrimiento

O un parecido sentimiento

Le pido a Dios que lo amparé en sus últimos momentos

I go out, take a walk and clear my thoughts

The anticipated feeling would be suffering or something similar

I ask God to be merciful in the final hours

Looking back on my life

Life that's gladly been given to me

Open my eyes and embrace the smile

Given to you & I

Looking back on my life

No regret only the sweet journey

Lessons from the simple steps

Taking by you & I

With my right hand first

I open the door to the room where my woman gave birth

To my first born son

Only minutes before

I was in the waiting room, nervous

Moms giving me comfort

Family support

As I approached I could hear him crying

I didn't notice

That my tears were running

Pictured myself for a moment in the arms of my father

Flashback to the bended shoulders

On which I'd sit

Grabbing his finger

Taking my first step

Would I become like him?

After a certain age bottle up

Stop showing love

But cold handshakes throughout the years

Replaced by hugs

Father whispered in his ears

The family was gathered

Pictures were taken

My hands still shaking

My joy was beyond words

Him in my arms

3 generations of tears running so calm

He came with Gods blessing and grace so we named him Faizan

If I worship U in fear of hell, burn me in it

And if I worship U in hope of paradise, exclude me from it

But if I worship U for Your own being

Don't withhold from me Your everlasting beauty

If I worship U in fear of hell, burn me in it

And if I worship U in hope of paradise, exclude me from it

But if I worship U for Your own being

Don't withhold from me Your everlasting beauty
