In everywhere we look (x6)
Allah, Allah, Allah
In everywhere we look

In everyone we meet (x6)
Allah, Allah, Allah
In everyone we meet

In every blade of grass (x6)
Allah, Allah, Allah
In every blade of grass

It doesn't matter what you done
It doesn't matter what you done
What effect is without a cause?
It doesn't matter what you done
Now lay your faithless head down
In necessities cotton hand
There's a love that never changes
No matter what you done

If your old man did you wrong (x3)
Well maybe his old man did him wrong
If you care to sing forgiveness songs
Come down and join our band
We'll cut you like sword
And sing forgiveness songs

Everywhere we look (x5)
It's all crazy
It's all false
It's all a dream
It's alright
Everywhere we look

    General CommentI know someone's going to comment about how this is Aaron becoming Muslim, or something of the sort. It's not. It's just the Arab word for God. An Arab Christian would call God Allah. Just thought I'd clear that up.

    General CommentWhen Aaron performed this song at a concert in Louisville he said, "I'm a little weary of having our album in Christian bookstores with a song titled, 'Allah, Allah, Allah'. To them that just says .... 'Shit, Shit, Fuck'". (Everyone laughs) "I'm sorry"

    General CommentI have to say, I am a die hard atheist, and I have just as different views as anyone else here. Everyone is getting so caught up in the association of religious viewpoints and are totally leaving out the meaning. ESPECIALLY in this song. Its about forgiveness, and the least we can do is put our views aside and agree that there is a lot of wrong in this world. There is no truth behind it's cause, or at least no visible truth, but we can all agree that it's awful and just rejoice that we are alive and breathing.

    General CommentTo say that Allah of the Koran and God of the Bible are the same conflicts with everything that is said in both texts. They are not the same and it is OBVIOUS. It is extremely lucid even with minimal reading. The basic characteristics of God and Allah are completely different. Just to make some easy points:
    1. God of the Bible loves all unconditionally, while Allah does not.
    2. The Bible thrives on a personal relationship with God, while Allah will have nothing of the sort.

    I know that I personally would never use "Allah" when referring to my God. It would create confusion and, quite frankly, make no sense at all.

    General CommentA great end to the album. Allconsuming is right on the Arabic. Funny how events shape perception, people are way too afraid. Since WWII the US has allied with the Jews, and now we hate the Muslims, but in reality, we are all as similarly different and alike.

    General CommentThanks, that's what i heard too, but i didn't want to put words in peoples' heads.

    Also, Allah means father and i think this song is supposed to be along the lines of G-d. Everyone that believes there is a good and forgiving God should forget the semantics about their differences and learn to be more like God: forgiving and peaceful.

    In a word i think the theme here is: coexist. The world is beautiful and we need to learn to enjoy it.
    Also, i want to sing forgiveness songs in their band =D

    General CommentI definitely think they encourage coexistence. Allah (meaning the one and only true God) is definitely forgiving and loving and peaceful. :)

    Though you can't ignore that flooded throughout some of their songs they claim God's forgiveness and peace can come to the world only through Jesus. ("he came to make right what man made wrong" in stick, carrot, string for example)

    General CommentDoes anyone know what Aaron shouts that's muffled in the background the first time? The second time he shouts, "bring it back now, one more time!"
