I dream of drones
I wake up screaming
I pray Insha’allah
I wake up dreaming

On the road to Hareeb
with the mu’adhdin
you can see burned bodies
from the death machines

Terror is black law
Oil is black gold
I’m a black void
I’m 13 years old

They say innocence is only
a failure to warn
but where young brothers die
martyrs are born

I dream of drones
I wake up screaming
I pray Insha’allah
I will wake up dreaming
