lay down your weapons
do we have to fight?
Hussein is now dead
we’ve done what’s right

let’s be brothers again
together as one
we can end this war
and have peace when done

when Mohammed led us
there was only love
with hope in our eyes
and Allah above

Then our leader died
and we couldn’t agree
which led us to chaos
that we clearly see

our differences are small
but the pain is gread
we pray for love
but see only hate

this ancient schism
must come to an end
our broken faith
should be on the mend

what leader here
can step to the plate
ushering in peace
with a new caliphate

a caliph for both sides
Shia and Sunni together
changing the tides
ending the war forever
