Movement 1:
The Savior

Allahu Akbar!
May my instincts explode
on this primitive bark.
These innocent people
forced to prey. 
Allahu Akbar!
May my nerves hold true
as I sprint, as I vault,
upon this empty, screaming man,
his bomb, his unholy eyes.
Allahu Akbar!

May my thumbs stab those eyes 
through his sockets into his brain.
Before his cries melt to ash.
Before his prayers come alive.

Movement 2:
The Martyr

Allahu Akbar!
I am Your instrument.
I am Your clot.
If not Your echo
I sing Your praise!
Allahu Akbar!
Oh, that divine symphony!
May I ring! May I kneel! 
My flawless Conductor!
My humble King!
Allahu Akbar!
How I hear Your sound! 
May I serve Your wind
as I bleed the notes of life
Allahu Akbar!

Movement 3:
The Savior’s Dying Prayer

May I shield 
all his shrapnel,
all his fire.

May I absorb 
all his hatred,
all his pain.

May I destroy
that trap inside us,
that fear that keeps us

from knowing we must
be free.
