Lyrics

[Verse] I'm just an American boy raised on MTV And I've seen all the kids in the soda pop ads But none of 'em looked like me So I started lookin' around for a light out of the dim And the first thing I heard that made sense was the word Of Muhammad, peace be upon him [Chorus] A shadu la ilaha illa Allah There's no God but God [Verse] If my daddy could see me now, chains around my feet He don't understand that sometimes a man Has got to fight for what he believes And I believe God is great, all praise due to him And if I should die, I'd rise up to the sky Just like Jesus, peace be upon him [Chorus] A shadu la ilaha illa Allah There's no God but God [Verse] We came to fight the Jihad and our hearts were pure and strong And death filled the air, we all offered up prayers And prepared for our martyrdom Ah, but Allah had some other plan, some secret not revealed Now they're draggin' me back With my head in a sack to the land of the infidel [Chorus] A shadu la ilaha illa Allah A shadu la ilaha illa Allah
