Different x5

You see I am different

No matter which way you...

Swing it, write it, or say it

Say it, write it, or swing it

Different I am

I am not like the ordinary

I bow my head to the floor, Times five

I stand by towering pillars, Times five

And I utter words in a language

So sweet, calm and beautiful

Bismillah hir rahmnir rahim

I am nothing

A piece of clay, Skin toned differently

My war is jihad, and its within me

I pray to the unseen in public

And show the world Islam is real and they’ll love it

I walk on campus with my head held high

Proud to be different

Because people will always talk

Talk slander, slander gossip, gossip comment, comment questions, question backbite

Full mouths, Empty Hearts

But still I am Muslim

And while others see us as being different, I see us being different together

Because when we are together then we can grow, When we are together then we can show

And what seemed like one individual

Is now many, Times five

And the dawah that we give will be spread To many, times five

Because we are different

Our mentality is different, Our demeanor is different

But a different that is good

Because different is not bad

You see I am different

No matter which way you

Swing it, write it, or say it

Say it, write it, or swing it

Different I am

And being different stands out

So accept who you are

And be who you are

Keep your head high and struggle to accomplish

Because no matter which way they swing it, write it, or say it

Being different is different

And that continues to make the difference
