Abdul Wahab


>>>The Key


Striving for goodness
Clears the way of higher knowledge
While the insider devil blocks
And brings ego, lust and greed
The union of these demonic three
Spoiled and impure
Indulge in self destruction
By locking the doors
Of the house where soul lives
And declare that this world is meaningless
So that they can justify
To go after to satiate their sordid desires
By doing all heinous deeds
But the key to defeat them
Lies in dispelling the darkness of ignorance
By bringing in the light of awareness
And having knowledge that the house
We own made up with some dad and some good bricks
