Here I am, looking out in the open

Wondering why it seems to be closing?

These different headlines and big signs

Make my people seem like they have to hide

Everyday is a struggle, Every day is a chance

To make sure that those words and stigmas are crushed

Muslim State of Mind, Muslim State of Mind

If all the time spent bashing people was put outside the timeline

Muslim State of Mind, Muslim State of Mind

Take the time to be the change and fight those headlines

Here’s to change, Here’s to a fresh start

Cause when you’ve made it this far fighting, you can’t stop

Muslim State of Mind, Muslim State of Mind
