Lyrics

All the sounds that surround us
All the noises that dumbfound us
The clatter and the clammer
Of the clutter in our lives
Cars and streets make silence shatter
Idle minds fill up with idle chatter
If we fill our void, that's all that matters

Why are the drums so silent
Why can't we hear the rhythm
What's wrong with you and I

Why are the drums so silent
Why can't we hear the rhythm
From the heels of believers
Marching to the Garden as they strive

We've digitised the Revelation
Does our rehearsed recitation
Go any deeper than our throats?

Our calls to prayer
Seem to rise up to the sky
Conferences and lectures
Seminars for you and I
The words that blow away
With a Nasheed that make us cry, yet...

Why are the drums so silent
Why can't we hear the rhythm
What's wrong with you and I

Why are the drums so silent
Why can't we hear the rhythm
From the heels of believers
Marching to the Garden as they strive

And if we can just be brave enough
To be each other's mirror
We may finally recognise
The face of conscience that we fear

And if we can take the time
To mute the noise
We've built around ourselves
The rhythm of the heartbeat
And the purpose may be clear

If we beat the drum
Beat the drum
Beat the drum

If we beat the drums of hope and faith
We will all fall into rhythm
I have faith in you and I

If we beat the drums of hope and faith
Then we will feel the rhythm
From our footsteps and our striving
Marching to the Garden as we try

If we beat the drums of hope and faith
We will all fall into rhythm
I have faith in you and I

If we beat the drums of hope and faith
Then we will feel the rhythm
From our footsteps and our striving
Marching to the Garden as we die
