try, just try!

Lenny:

No llores, no pierdas la fe

La sed la calma el que haze

Agua de la arena

Y tu que te levantas con orgullo entre las piedras

Haz hecho mares de este polvo

Don’t cry, don’t lose faith

The one who made water come out of the sand

Is the one who quenches the thirst

And you who rise proud from between the stones

Have made oceans from this dust

Waqas:

I throw stones at my eyes

’cause for way too long they’ve been dry

Plus they see what they shouldn’t from oppressed babies to thighs

I throw stones at my tongue

’cause it should really keep its peace

I throw stones at my feet

’cause they stray and lead to defeat

A couple of big ones at my heart

’cause the thing is freezing cold

But my nafs is still alive

and kicking unstoppable and on a roll

I throw bricks at the devil so I’ll be sure to hit him

But first at the man in the mirror so I can chase out the venom
