Arabian wind
The Needle's Eye is thin
The Ships of State sail on mirage
But drown in sand
In No-Man's Land
Where ALLAH does command

What good is spilling
Blood? It will not
Grow a thing

"Taste eternity"
The sword sings Blues for ALLAH
In'sh'ALLAH

They lie where they fall
There's nothing more to say
The desert stars are bright tonight,
Let's meet as friends
The flower of Islam
The fruit of Abraham

The thousand stories have
Come round to one again
Arabian Night
Our gods pursue their fight
What fatal flowers of
Darkness spring from
Seeds of light

Bird of Paradise - Fly
In white sky
Blues for ALLAH
In'sh'ALLAH

Let's see with our heart
These things our eyes have seen
And know the truth will still lie
Somewhere in between

Under eternity
Under eternity
Under eternity
Blue
Bird of Paradise
Fly
In white sky
Under eternity
Blues
For ALLAH
In'sh'ALLAH
