 (by Mario Mesquita Borges)

One of the most talented and recognized producers and songwriters within the British electronic and fusion music scene, Nitin Sawhney is also a respected actor, writer, and scriptwriter. Conceiving daring theme combinations of electronica-style beats with gleaming pieces of Asian inspirations driven within the trip-hop and jazzy styles, Sawhney delivers exclusive and overwhelming sound pieces, enlightened by his indubitable creative insight. Following an education in the U.K. Kent region, obscured by the militant presence of racist organizations, Sawhney finally turned himself to music, therefore aiming to overcome the ruling and disquieting racial boundaries. During the subsequent years, he went on studying law at Liverpool University before moving to London. It was there that alongside Sanjeev Bhaskar he created the Secret Asians, a radio show that eventually evolved into an award-winning TV series. Although he dedicated most of his time to the TV business, Sawhney never neglected his musical dream. He first joined James Taylor, with whom he played a series of dates across the U.K. alongside Taylor's quartet. Following the experiment, Sawhney decided on forming his own band, the Jazztones, by that time playing on concerts headlined by DJs like Gilles Peterson. After yet another collaboration, by then with Talvin Singh with whom he assembled the Tihai Trio, the British creator decided to make it on his own, releasing his debut album, Spirit Dance, on his own label in 1993. A few months after, he signed a contract with Outcaste Records for which he released one of his most acclaimed recordings, Migration, in 1995. Following a year of incessant work, the album Displacing the Priest arrived record stores, again subliming his exceptional creative skills. During this period, Nitin Sawhney also continued to dedicate part of his time writing soundtracks for acclaimed TV series and theater plays, or accomplishing remixing works for artists like Nusrat Fateh Ali Khan. At the same time, during the following months, Sawhney recorded his long-awaited fourth album, Beyond Skin, offered in late 1999. Coming after an extensive touring season across the U.K. and Europe alongside artists like Sting, Sawhney recorded what turned out to be his fifth studio record; Prophesy arrived in 2001, again achieving exalted reviews from the media.

Saudades

Saudades do Rio de Janeiro
(I miss Rio de Janeiro)
Saudades do meu pai
(I miss my father)
Saudades do calor humano
(I miss the human warmth)
Saudades... ah

Saudades is to miss you
Saudades is a yearning
Saudades is when my heart aches so
Saudades… oh

This emptiness, this hollow feeling
I'm feeling the loss of you
Oh, my amazing city
How I miss you

Saudades do Rio de Janeiro
Saudades do meu pai
Saudades do calor humano
Saudades... ah

To miss you
Yearning
When my heart aches so
Oh…

Bengali Song

Fute Full Apon Shukhe...
Kaar isharai...
Kaar Adore...
Kaata Bon...
Shomirone Shohag Chorai
Flowers are blossoming encouraged by their own happiness
I wonder who is giving them the cue (to blossom)
I wonder at whose loving caresses
And the breeze spreads loving aodrations to the whole forest

Beyond skin

Broken skin

Today at 15.45 hours
India conducted 3 underground nuclear tests
In the
In the Pokhran Range.

Hope falls softly from your hand
Dreams burn deep beneath the land
Time casts shadows overall
Sweating fever, rain or river
Rushing winds beneath your call

Broken skin, distant fears
Shattered worlds of endless tears
Hidden fires, distant lies
Burried hopes beneath the cries
Broken skin, distant fears
Silent lips, so far, so near

Silence, tears every hope apart
Two flames burn deep beneath one heart
Teardrops flow faster with the tide
Raging over calmer waters
As the timeless land divides

Broken skin, distant fears
Shattered worlds of endless tears
Hidden fires, distant lies
Burried hopes beneath the cries
Broken skin, distant fears
Silent lips, so far, so near

Broken, distant, shattered
Hidden, distant, burried
Broken, distant, silent

Cold gain repeats on eastern shores
Strong winds blow over colder wars
Proud lips stays silent in the rain
There are half a million voices in the song without a name

Broken, distant, shattered
Hidden, distant, burried
Broken, distant, silent

Shattered
Hidden, distant, burried
Broken, distant, silent

(So far so near)
Shattered
(There are half a million voices)
Distant
Shattered
Distant
Shattered
(There are half a million voices)

Just five miles from India’s nuclear test site
Children play in the shade of the village water tank
Here in the Rajahstan desert people say they’re proud their country shown its nuclear capability

*** Thanx a lot to JackieCane & Jonas & Issam or this one ***

Letting Go

Now I often talk of my heart
How can I turn to the dark
And the swaying silence
I see, is nothing I can hold on to
You can’t breathe if I hold you tight
You can not breathe if I hold you tight

Don’t be afraid of letting go
Don’t be afraid of letting go

Not of anything out of anyone
All alone here with my demons
Am I ready to move on?
To a person or place
A long away from here
And I miss you
And I lose you
And I find you
I choose to follow my heart

Don’t be afraid of letting go
Don’t be afraid of letting go

Not of anything out of anyone
Out of anything out of anyone

Don’t be afraid of letting go X6

*** Thanx a lot to JackieCane & Frank & Jonas for this one ***

The Pilgrim

Woke up in the morning in a temple
Kinda lucky on my feet for it was central
So I walk across the village
Saw a group of kids pillage
And I thought to myself I might be ment to
You see
Pilgrims in the town
All seem to hold a frown
Say all they wanna be is diggy down
You know Speck thought he'd ask
But figured it's just a mask
Tthis guy's on something else that's profound

I'm not the stool or the fool or the leader here to rule
Not the lover or the fighter who came here to duel
But I thought I looked into, but I walked into
So I can understand all the rules, cool?

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

Who's ever watched the world that's my motto
Don't ever wanna play the head honcho dig but huh
If you try to push I won't beat around the bush
Straight up you're getting dissed on the pronto.

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

If I could, I'd solve the problems of the world that exist
If I could always chill, I would without resist
If you weren't so litteral, brother you might get it
Pack my bags, tambourines, and jeans so don't sweat it

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet.

As the journey continues I gain current instincts
I feel I know what they must be thinking, for instance
When they speak in riddles I'm left with the question
But won't stop arguments to kill attention
They all got a sixth sense to be one another
So pilgrims seek refuge undercover
Where it's fly like birds to live a lot is absurd
Try telling that to this kid named Unver

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

I met him on tour a week on for twenty four
He was born in the village, but left in ninety four
Now he's still got probs he doesn't know how to solve
I said, "Unver, I've been there before"
In the light of understanding I forgot it
Sometimes the boat shakes when you rock it
I told him we are like family, a part of humanity
Don't overdo, and don't toss it.

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

He dug and moved on with his life
'Cause he digs it gets real dark at night
Don't want a collar that's blue or a reflection of you
Just wants us to get his plight
Myself I'd like the years just to take me away
It might leave a part of this world in dismay
But the village calls the pilgriming negroes
After all I'm just one needle in the hay
Now what I'm speaking in is symbolics
But you can call it what you want to call it
See all that I do is throw words, and I hope that you caught it
Only got one arrow but I aim for two targets

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that

Life is like a puzzle not pieced yet
Might take a village ever long to see that
Don't break your ties meet my pal compromise
And the kid you wanna be you can be that
You can be that, you can be that

France has carried out the first of a planned series of underground nuclear tests

Was aproximately the same as the bomb dropped on Hiroshima

Immigrant

Also heavily advertised in the local newspapers in Delhi
That they are encouraging for people to come down here and work.
And then we went to the embassy and they showed us
Kew Garden pictures and pictures of the various parts of England,
That it is all that beautiful and everything is just right
And that’s what we just applied for the voucher.

You burn my flame within your hands
You know when my destiny falls
This time has insecurity
I feel, makes me restless inside

Will you take me there
To a distant place I’ve never been before
I could leave this world
I could follow you like oceans to the shore
You could take me there
Make the rivers of my mind flow to my dreams

You hold your secrets from my eyes
You see where the furthest rain falls
The day breaks over in the streams
You know where my rivers will flow

Will you take me there
To a distant place I’ve never been before
I could leave this world
I could follow you like oceans to the shore
You could take me there
Make the rivers of my mind flow to my dreams

And I dream of places far from here
And I call your name into the wind
And I wish the night would take me to another world
Where no one knows a face or asks your name

Will you take me there
To a distant place I’ve never been before
I could leave this world
I could follow you like oceans to the shore
You could take me there
Make the rivers of my mind flow to my dreams

Make the rivers flow
Will
Will you take
Oh yeah

Will you take me there?

Will you take me there?

Oh Yeah

Take me there
Take me there
Take me there, yeah
Take me there, yeah yeah
Oh, Take me there
Will you take?
Will you take?
Me there

Take me there
Take me there
Take me there, yeah
Take me there, yeah yeah
Take me there
Take me there
Take me there, yeah
Take me there, yeah yeah

Nostalgia

....
One day perhaps we will come back to this country and bring our children, to show them you know
And what we had to sacrifice to be in that country you know.
But I think in the initial state that we had a lot of struggle.
But with god’s grace and his kindness we are okay now and our children are okay as well I think…

Dreams, dreams, dreams, dreams

I can’t feel your dreams
I can’t see you
I can’t touch your memories
But I can hear you

I can’t feel your dreams, dreams
I can’t see you
I can’t touch your memories
But I can hear you
Words that fall like distant rain
Words that echo with your eyes

I can’t taste
I can’t feel
I can’t reach across a thousand years

I can almost touch the soil beneath your whisper
I can almost feel the hopes you left behind
I can almost touch the soil beneath your whisper
I can almost feel the hopes you left behind
Words that fall like distant rain
Words that echo with your eyes

I can’t taste
I can’t feel
Thousand years

I can’t hear you
I can’t see you
I can’t touch you
I can’t reach you
I can’t hear you

I can’t see you

Thousand years

I can’t taste
I can’t feel
Thousand years

I can’t taste
I can’t feel
I can’t reach across a thousand years
I can’t taste
I can’t feel
I can’t reach across a thousand years
I can’t taste
I can’t feel
Thousand years

Beyond Skin

On July 29th at 5:29 am,
The gadget turned the pre-dawn sky as bright as the sun,
as the first atomic mushroom cloud rose above the horizon.

We knew the world would not be the same...
A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita…
Vishnu is trying to persuade the prince that he should do his duty.
And to impress him takes on his multi-armed form and says,
"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."
I suppose we all thought that, one way or another.

A few people laughed, a few people cried, most people were silent.
I remembered the line from the Hindu scripture, the Bhagavad Gita.
"Now I am become Death, the destroyer of worlds."


*** Thanx a lot to JackieCaneCynthia  & Jonas for this one ***

Note from Cynthia :
The quote in Beyond Skin is J. Robert Oppenheimer describing his and his team's reaction to the Trinity Experiments (the first explosion of an atomic bomb)
 Oppenheimer  was the man in charge of the Manhattan Project (the building of the atomic bomb during WWII).
He later came to oppose the development of the hydrogen bomb, and perhaps his part in the Manhattan Project.

Sunset

If I were never to leave you
If I were always alone
If I were never to see you
If I could set the sun
If I could set the sun

Keep movin'
Keep changin'
Keep flowin' with the sun

Oceans rise
People rise with the sun

If I were never to leave you
If I were always alone
If I would never to see you
If I could set the sun
If I could set the sun

Tears fallin'
Rain fallin'
Leaves are falling with the sun
Lives drifting
Seeds drifting
Worlds drifting with the sun

If I were never to leave you
If I were always alone
If I were never to see you
If I could set with the sunset, say it ...

If I
Never to leave here

Nothing

Nothing new left to say

Can be heard
Nothing helps me find my way

Empty words
No more will I question why

What we feel
Nothing left to make me try

Nothing's real

Fear no one
No more fear
Nothing hides in me

If my nothing here resides

Inside me
I have nothing left to hide

Could be free
No more clinging to this world

Nothing here
Insecurity unfolds

no more fear

Fear no one
No more fear
Nothing
No more fear
No one
No more fear
Nothing hides in me

Feeling cuts me like a knife

And who's to say
If we've everything in life

Find our way
In this nothing I have found

Nothing more
But in the space inside my mind

I open doors

Doors

No one
Open doors

Nothing
Open doors

No one
Open doors

Nothing hides

Nothing More

Feeling cuts me like a knife

And who's to say
If we've everything in life

Find our way

Nothing more
But in the space inside my mind

I open doors

Doors

No one
Open doors

Nothing
Open doors

No one
Open doors

Nothing hides

*** Thanx a lot to Jonas who corrected some mistakes ***

Nothing More

Feeling cuts me like a knife and who's to say
If we've everything in life we find our way
And there's nothing I have found nothing more
But in the space inside my mind I open doors

Just no one
Open doors nothing
Open doors no one
Open doors nothing hides

Moonrise

Não fique triste
Quando eu me apagar
Vais partir da vida escura
Veja a lua
Veja a lua subindo
Tomando o seu lugar
Ondas de tristeza
Para apre
Para apreciar

E assim um dia,
Uma novela de paz
Uma tempestade que trata as dores
Não despede um futuro
Que ainda pode ser
Os olhos no escuro
Ainda podem
Ainda podem ver

*** Thanx a lot to Guido for this one ***

Don't be sad
When I fade away
You'll leave the dark life
See the moon
See the moon rise
Taking your place
Waves of sadness
For enj...
For enjoying...

And thus one day
A novel of peace
A storm that treats the pains
Doesn't fire a future
That still can be
The eyes in the darkness
They still can
They still can see

Street Guru (Part 1)

They've incorporated their culture and their values into the city and they've enriched the city
both like, from uh, you know work ethic and you know the restaurants and the music and it's really a diverse city.
I mean you walk through the Vany Avenue, you know you go through Korean neighborhoods,
Old Jewish neighborhoods, Arabic neighborhoods, uh, Pakistani-Indian neighborhoods.
It's incredible. The intensity... I think yeah, development has pushed us away from other people.
You know a lot of times people are rude because they want like immediate access or immediate information.
You know some things in life can't be immediate, sometimes you gotta wait and let things happen...
People are like, are increasingly rude. Like I'll say somebody will get in a cab, we'll say "I'll get em there in 5 minutes."
And they'll say, "Well, It should only take 3." Now who gives a shit if it takes 5 minutes or 3 minutes, who cares?
At the end of your life nobody's gonna put at your tomb stone "shit I got in a cab in five, in seven minutes instead of three".
You know, It doesn't matter, and technology has made us slaves to time.
Naw, a lot of people that are really have technical jobs, they're slaves to time.
And time is the essence of life it seems like. And they're basically like losing it
They're losing the essence of their life because, you know, their life is like just going away and,
They're not enjoying it because their so engrossed in efficiency and productivity and shit like that.
That it's almost sad. They all come here from somewhere else like seeking their fame and fortune or,
The top jobs and they're and career-you know, in their, in their industries.
They get very engrossed, and they into these you know these cell phones and computers and...
I think the real important things in life are you know, people and your family.
I think you don't realize that, a lot of people don't realize that until they're older.
I think there's going to be a backlash against technology.

Breathing Light

The fighting was the heaviest yet seen in Sarajevo.
At the police station man by officers loyal to the Muslim government president Izedbegovic
Men tried to find what cover they could as bullets literally kicked around them.

Developed

Every Australian should be able to, uh,
Keep their culture together by using, exercising all these elements of today's reality.
And that reality is development.
And that, that development um, I would think is the way it should be right.
Not something that is put upon us, or forced down our throats.

You and I know that music is universal language.
And it doesn't have any prejudice. It has one of thinking.
Without prejudice, without prejudice, without prejudice...

Walk Away

Walked away...
Heavier than footsteps drawn across the glade
I flew all night, couldn't get in
Rained all night, all soaked to the skin
Walked away...
Heavier than footsteps drawn across the glade
Watch my breath turn into steam
So has eyes grown dim
Walked away...
Heavier than footsteps drawn across the glade
Let her in...

Let her, it was warm inside...
Walked away...

Heavier than footsteps drawn across the glade...

Cold & Intimate

You see me walk
You see me fall
You touch the tears upon my face
I taste your words
I smell you fear
I feel your bitter sweet embrace
Nothing mentioned, nothing gained
You're here and then your gone
Your complications keep me sane
We're cold and intimate

I watch the news
I hear your words
I smell the lies beneath your smile
You hesitate, you deviate
From pictures filled with silence
Nothing mentioned, nothing gained
We're here and then we're gone
A simple world appears insane
But we're cold and intimate

We search within
We search without
We touch the corners of our minds
We play our lives
Deceive our friends
We taste the fruit of our own lies

Pointless ventures
Endless games
We were never here at all
Nothing in this world could change
Are we cold and intimate

Street Guru (Part 2)

You see me walk

You see me fall

I think there's gonna be a backlash against technology.
You know, and I don't know what's gonna cause it.
I hope it won't be any environmental disaster shit, you know, for sure for my kids that wanna live a better life.
That's so much materialic but I want a peaceful life.
You know sometimes it's good just to go in the woods and just go hikin', and get back in touch with yourself and nature.
You know, then you come back here and you realize that this is like man,
Ludacris all this emphasis on technology... Fifty different internet devices and shit, internet devices you can put in your pocket.
Sometimes I feel threatened by it but you know, that's the future and I am a man of the past,
You know, I'm a, I'm a low-tech man in a high-tech world. I mean, it's a fact man.
I'm a low-tech man in a high-tech world there ain't shit I can do about it because,
You know, the world's changing and I'm not and you know, maybe I don't wanna change.
Maybe the people I associate with are like me.
You know...

What's going on, we can't use our brains?
It's just being a person,
You know, it's being a fucking person man...

Ripping Out Tears

Breeding stool pigeons, I can't take it

Breeding stool pigeons, I can't take it

I saw two gunmen.
I saw them who had weapons, black masks, black trenchcoats.
I was very frightened.

Yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah yeah
Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny
Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny
Breaker breaker 1 9 in a world full of crime
They got a nine to my spine no time to recline
Sit wine relax and unwind
Time is running out
I'm trying to keep hope alive
President full of jive
My 9 to 5 is the hustle to strive
Born to die and survive at the same time
I gotta analyze what lies beneath genocide
What happen to the freedom rob?
Increase the murder rate or suicide

Ey yo goverment plus
Sometimes I think we were born to rot, on the block
So many got shot over rocks
While the neighborhood watch the cops and shout
Hope somebody listening
???
But never mentioning
On the occassion that's he's slipping in
Man this world is tripping in
Make me wanna say it again
Yo, money sex and religion
They got us all standing like stool pigeons
I can't take it
Man I'm fully clothed and I feel naked
Walking through these streets of death
Yo man gotta watch the left though
Man it's real sick
I don't know it's like some devilish shit
It's like who making all these plots?

Who wanna see us all rot?
I don't know but this shit is sick
It's like disease trick please
I can't take it man...

I can't take it damn...

I can't take it man...

I can't take it...

Damn...

Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny
Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny
Yo what a lady gotta do?
Gotta come through shake that ass to get that revenue?
Man my mother never knew never had a clue
What this ill game will do
I'm trapped in this rap life living it
Man, everyday I'm giving it
Love the God because he made this
I don't know trying to be famous
Man just shooting up
You wonder the Jews stay looting up booting up
For the front line
Man gotta speak from the mind

Man griddling
Got the kids minds griddling
Man this shit is just simple and
I can't understand all these demons man
Man griddling
Got the kids minds griddling
Man this shit is just simple and
I can't understand all these demons man

Cold killing blood stakes spilling
These streets is revealing
Yo we at the last days
Man and I'm trapped in this worldly maze
Looking like man X was just a phase
Now I'm back to my weed smoking days
Don't let it fuck with your brain
Ease through the pain and maintain
A lot of drug abuse
A lot of prostitutes
A lot of people dying for the loot
A lot of people barely got a roof
A lot of people barely know the truth
I'm like this

Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny
Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny
Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny
Ain't no stoppin' me the Prophesy
I came to fulfill my destiny

Human

The river

What do we do in these crazy times?

Inside, outside, I can feel it in my mind
In the ocean and the river
I can feel it in the tide
And all day, all night, in the rithim of the city
From the dusk to the dawn I can feel it flowing in me

Down by the river
Life flowing deeper
Tide growing stronger
No, you can't hold and hold the river
Inside my head I can hear it talking to me
Like the river to the ocean
I can feel it growing in me
And all day, all night, in the rithim of the city
From the dusk to the dawn I can feel it flowing through me

Down by the river
Life flowing deeper
Tide growing stronger
No, you can't hold and hold the river
Inside, outside, I can feel it in my mind
In the ocean and the river
I can feel it in the tide
And all day, all night in the rithim of the city
From the dusk to the dawn I can feel it growing in me

Down by the river
Life flowing deeper
Tide growing stronger
No, you can't hold and hold the river

River, river flowing with the tide
River, river flowing with the tide
River, river flowing with the tide...

Eastern eyes

(feat. Natacha Atlas)

For the eastern eyes of a life reborn
When the western skies of a broken dawn
In the first embrace of a haunted smile
With the hopeful eyes of an alien child
I was taken by the hand from the ocean to the sand
From the half-light to the day
I have come to find my way
I have come to find my way

In the burning sheets of a neighbour's pain
With the sweat of a night and the summer rain
In the cry of birth and the death of fear
For the hope of a light and the joy of tears
I was taken by the hand from the ocean to the sand
From the half-light to the day
I have come to find my way
I have come to find my way

From the tainted screen of a surgeon mind
From the tear-stained face of a haunted kind
From the shade of death and the flame of life
From the ??est blade of a surgeon's knife
I was taken by the hand from the ocean to the sand
From the half-light to the day
I have come to find my way
I have come to find my way

Eastern, eastern eyes... your eyes
For these eastern, eastern, eastern, eastern eyes
For these eastern, eastern eyes
For these eastern eyes
Eastern eyes (3x)
Eastern, eastern, eastern eyes (2x)
Eastern, eastern eyes

*** Thanx a lot to Isabel for this one ***

Say Hello

I knew you needed a friend
I knew you needed some blue skies
You need some laughter again
'Til magic returns to your blue eyes
You're lost in the circle of pain
Where's it all going
Each day is the same
Where are you going

Say hello
Say hello
You're never alone

Something inside of yourself
When darkness approaches, your silence
Freedom's forgotten her name
Nothing makes sense you don't complain
Everything started to fall
Where's it all going
Can't make any sense of it all
Where am I going

Say hello
Say hello
You're never alone

Falling Angels

There's a time for grown up boys
To make a mess of pretty things
To lose yourself and find
A peace in your goodbye

I lost my faith in you
To distant dreams of truth
Nothing here redeems me
No angels to release me

I dream of falling angels
I dream of falling angels
Touching me...

The shadows bury me
In rusty memories
Hopes fall inside
My angels cold goodbyes
You lost that photo-album smile
To memory's faded, faded, faded, faded child

I dream of falling angels
I dream of falling angels
Touching me...

*** Thanx a lot to RychasJohannes for this one ***

Falling

(feat. Aqualung)

Some day the wind will change and you will see me clearly
One day these dreams of mine will bring me to my time
Some day i will become what i am meant to be coming to
One day but that's a million some days from today

Lately the sunshine makes a different shape around
Lately my music has a different sound to show me
Lately i ask questions of the world but no one is listening
Tell me when i go to sleep what will the morning bring me?

Falling, falling, falling, or am i flying?
Flying, flying, flying, or am i falling?

Fragile Wind

Haath pakad kar chalte rahe, saath samundar chod gaye,
andhiyaari se roshni tak, aa hi gaye hum aa hi gaye (hindi)
inside the dark, deepest part of my mind. Through sunshine and rain, idle dreams keep my sane.
we're only feathers in the wind falling from the sky without wings and
though the world may fall I know, I see sunlight through the rain over me.
beyond the dark lie the hopes and the fears. Innocent eyes watching as worlds collide
we're only feathers in the wind falling from the sky without wings and
though the world may fall I know, I see sunlight through the rain over me
Haath pakad kar chalte rahe, saath samundar chod gaye, andhiyaari se roshni tak,
Aa hi gaye hum aa hi gaye
inside my head i can be anything (x 5 and fade)

Promise

Lately, lately I've seen you in your dream
Lost in a clouded mind
Held down by all the things that seem so real
The world you can't leave behind

You've made all of the money you could spens
You're begging for something more
Behind the prison tou call your home my friends
The light in the endless dark

Lately, you've followed your fears under the bed
And fell for a hundred years
Into the arms of a wounded melody
The promise that love's still here

You held a cynical world like God's bruised fruit
Chopped from a sacred tree
It's us, the enemy we fought all these years
The stories of you and me

So we hurry, go faster and faster to find that we've ran our whole life
Forgoing the sweetest view
There's a buzz like a lightbulb up to our ears
Promise that love's still here

Retrace the steps in the snow to find your friend
'Cause the child had melt so fast
Big dreams, the future you taste on summer's time
Having it just won't last

Right here, we've all got the answer in our heart
If we could just let that go
Lifetimes of beautiful sunday church bell girls
The junkies upon the floor

So we hurry, go faster and faster to find that we've ran our whole life
Forgoing the sweetest view
We could argue forever and ever, be clear
Promise that love's still here

If forever and ever and ever we find that we've ran our whole life
Forgoing the sacred view
There's a buzz like a lightbuld up to our ears
Promise that love's still here
The promise that love's still here
The promise that love's still here
The promise that love's still here

Chetan Jeevan (Conscious Life)

I have lived life until now to the height of enjoyment
My physical body accompanied by a conscious mind
Endless desires swirl outside of me
HE is also taking me along his cosmic path giving me experience of seeing, hearing, tasting, smelling and feeling
I feel content while sleeping, crying, laughing, eating and drinking
Day and night I think that there must be some purpose to this life
I have come to understand joy and sorrow due to lust, anger, greed, attachment and ego
I have started to think about what is the characteristic wont of life and about what is the uncharacteristic wont of life,
about what is benevolent use of mind and words and what is harmful use of mind and words
and about what is sin and what is virtue
Thus no more desire or expectation for past, present or future remains with me
My mind has gone beyond past, present and future and beyond the rational intellect of imagination
I see that I am beyond birth and death and am enjoying mind in a state of samadhi

PS : I found this translation on a forum. Here is what the guy said :

An Indian friend of mine recently translated Chetan Jeevan (Conscious Life) for me and I thought I would share this in case other people are interested.
My friend doesn't speak very good English so I've had to piece this together quite a bit. I'm sure it's more eloquent in its' original form and if anyone can help with a truer translation then please feel free!
I use the definitions given by Shrii Shrii Anandamurti-ji for Dharma and Satya but realise that Hindu and Buddhist definitions are various and differ.
With respect,  Shriila' X

Rainfall

I'd like to know what's going on
In this world we're living on
So much poverty
All around me
This insanity
That surrounds me
It is the world, seems so far away
People's lives, changing everyday
Oh no... I can hear the rainfall
I'd like to know when you and I
Will stop walking and passing by
So much ignorance
That my eyes see
My experience
Cannot blind me
It is the world, seems so far from here
Seasons change, and the rain is near
Oh no... I can hear the rainfall
Oooh... Yehh....
I'd like to find a new reality
Something more than this fantasy
No more false dreams
No more mind games
I can't even see
Through this dark rain
It is the world, seems so far away
People lives, changing everyday
Ey Oh... I can hear the rainfall

Waiting (O Mistress Mine)

O mistress mine
Where are you roaming?
O stay and hear
Your true loves coming
That can sing both high and low
Trip no further pretty sweeting
Journeys end in lovers meeting
Every wise mans son doth know
What comes now has gone tomorrow
Present smiles are full of sorrow
But I see you in my mind
From the shadows of my memory
I can feel you walking near me
And I�m waiting for the rain to fall
Dust from your eyes
Angels are falling
From distant fears
Your cold hearts beating
I can see you in the dark
Or the flicker of a daydream
From the edge of silent tears
I remember and I smile
What is love?
Tis not hereafter
Present mirth
Hath present laughter
What's to come is still unsure
In delay there lies no plenty
Then come kiss me sweet and twenty
Youths a stuff twill not endure

The Boatman

Baroshekar aador meke

Adar theke alor mesha

(Something) caressed with love
I drifted ashore from the sea
The sand shows a new way

The light blends with the darkness
The wind is full of love
Who are you boatman who paddles this boat, whom i cannot see

Spark

All the colours are crackling, the leaves are alive
With a note from your heart I keep written inside
Frozen air surrounds your eyes
As you speak fountains collide

With a mouth full of stars I trip over my feet
You've blown me away, I can hardly speak
Stolen my silence, scattered my peace
I'm lost in the dark, mislaid my spark

Memories of you fading into the past
To keep you inside freeze your kiss so it lasts
In the shadow of your light
I live my days like they were nights

With a mouth full of stars I trip over my feet
You've blown me away, I can hardly speak
Stolen my silence, scattered my peace
I'm lost in the dark, mislaid my spark

All the space that you need and the silence you plead
I've thrown them away cause your signs I can't read
Forgotten thrills in the sudden chills
Frozen air surrounds your eyes

With a mouth full of stars I trip over my feet
You've blown me away, I can hardly speak
Stolen my silence, scattered my peace
I'm lost in the dark, mislaid my spark

Journey

Every now and then
I fall into deep thought and self-examination
Figuring out
If I really belong in this world

Who am I
What was I born to live
Will I succeed
Or will I fall short
Of my dreams

I know I've got to find a way to move on
Yeah, to a place where I can be stronger

On a journey
Deeper inside
On a journey
Deeper inside my mind

I know I've got to find a way to move on
Got to move on
To a place where I can be stronger
Stronger
Stornger
Stronger
Stronger

I'm on a journey
Deep inside my mind
To see if I can find
The answers to all the questions
I've been asking myself
For a long time
A long time
A long time
For a long time

I'm on a journey
Deep inside my mind
To see if I can find
The answers to all the questions
I've been asking myself
For a long time
A long time
A long time
For a long time

Koyal

Kyun koyal bole patjhad mein
Aur sawan mude amber mein
Piya milan ki bela mein
Kyun rut badle be-mausam mein

Kyun kaali raaton ke pat parr
Rang chhidakta hai din karr
Haan paa kar tumko saajan mere
Kyun zoom utha mera kan kan

Sun mitwa kyun man matwaara
Naach raha tan man saara
Gunje sargam payal chalkara
Sangit ka naata tumhara

Kyun rut badle bemausam mein
Kyun rut badle bemausam mein
Kyun rut badle bemausam mein
Songbird

Why is the cuckoo humming in the autumn defoliation
And the clouds of rain is moving in the sky
In the time of meeting with the lover
Why is the season changing untimely

Why on the brim of these dark nights
Sprinkling the colour so lavishly
Yes, by having you, my sweetheart
Why is each of my minute particle swinging in ecstasy

Listen up dear, why is this mind so intoxicated
My every bit of the body and mind is dancing
Listen up dear, why is this mind so intoxicated
Your association is musical

Why is the season changing untimely
Why is the season changing untimely
Why is the season changing untimely

Noches En Vela (Part 1)

( featuring Ojos De Brujo )

Crece canela entre tus acai y los mios
Metales nobles que se funden con ritmo y sabor
Hay rumbita buena, pa' todas las horas del día
Noches en vela, hoguera, serená y amor sin condición

Trayendo flores voy, buscando amores
En este mundo a veces oscuro, inexplicable

Ay, trayendo flores frescas más, a veces negras
Como en la cuna de los que compran miseria

Labra camino, semilla que encuentres siembra
Recoge frutos que no mucho alimentan
Hay tempestades que recogerán tormentas
Tú sigue, sigue camino, ay semilla que encuentres siembra

Crece canela entre tus sacas y los mios
Metales nobles que se funden con ritmo y sabor

Cinnamon grows between your bags and mine
Noble metals that melt with rhythm and taste
There's some nice rhumba for every hour in the day
Sleepless nights, bonfire, serenade, love with no condition

Carrying flowers i'm going, looking for romance
In this world sometimes dark, inexplicable

Carrying fresh flowers, sometimes black
Just like the cradle of those who buy misery

Till your way, and every seed you find, sow it
Collect the fruits that feeds no much
There's black tempests that will collect storms
Keep going, till your way, and every seed you find sow

Cinnamon grows between your bag and mine
Noble metals that melt with rhythm and taste

Throw

What we have
What we give
What we take
Who we are
What we have
What we give
What we take
What we have
What we give
What we take
Who we are
What we have
What we give all away
Always
What we do if we throw it all away
All away
Always
What we do
If we throw it all away

One man gambles in a London house casino
A glass of whiskey and a BLT
He spins the wheel of fortune
Blows his night in just one roll
Stumbles out into the street

All away
Always
What we do
If we throw it all away
 What we have
What we give
What we take
Who we are

So he staggers out into the night
& takes the night bus to his home
A hotel room, an empty chair
He hears a voice but no one's there
A gun and Bible by the phone

All away
Always
What we do
If we throw it all away
 What we have
What we give
What we take
Who we are

A drunken fool with broken memories
Says his prayers & takes a drink
The morning brings a brand new season
One more chance, and one more reason
Tomorrow's just a dream away

All away
Always
What we do
If we throw it all away
 What we have
What we give
What we take
Who we are

What we have
What we give
What we take
Who we are

What we have
Is what we give
What we take
Who we are

And Martin Luther never died

Let the flipside bring a second wind to change your world
On the flipside you can do anything

My world is rearranging
So many pasts to futures
That my history's never seen
Out comes change
But I don't know
Still everywhere the sunlight glows
For every one tomorrow brings another day

Should've been more like a Y to Z
Every time I open my eyes I still see
On the flipside

My soul is a shadow of pain
No thrills of bills to bury shame
Oh I love to be alive on the flip-slick-side

On the flipside you can do anything
On the flipside winter autumn spring
Let the flipside bring a second wind to change your world

London Undersound

Days Of Fire

( Featuring Natty )

There's no more trains going that way
There's no more trains coming this way
You better make your way home, son
There's something going down in London

Well that ain't gonna stop me
So I step out the station and what do I see
Traffic for days
Let me walk a bit and I'll see where it get me

Then it all went slow motion, everything slow motion
First came the flash of lights then the sound of explosion
And we're still in slow motion, we're still in slow motion

On these streets where I played
And these trains that I take, I saw fire
But now I've seen the city change in
Oh so many ways, since the days of fire
Since the days of fire

Now I'm on the train going that way
There were too many people coming this way
Delayed trains, delayed trains
Didn't plan for death on the subway

So I step out the station, Brazilian name all over TV
Realization, I was on the next train, could've been me

Then it all went slow motion, everything slow motion
First the flash of light then the rise of emotion
And I'm still in slow motion, I'm still in slow motion

On these streets where I played
And these trains that I take, I saw fire
But now I've seen the city change in
Oh so many ways, since the days of fire
Since the days of fire

One day going that way, one day going this way
Those summer days, that crazy phase
Like a jack-knifed car on the highway

Just two mad situations, fire on the news, fire on TV
A bus, a train station, the crossfire sights of destiny

Now it's all gone slow motion, everything slow motion
The lights gone out - I feel no more emotion
I'm all out of emotion, I'm out of emotion

On these streets where I played
And these trains that I take, I saw fire
But now I've seen the city change in
Oh so many ways, since the days of fire
Since the days of fire

October Daze

( Featuring Tina Grace )

I'm lingering, I'm lost
I'm floating nowhere like
A wasp in October
Summer's over and done

These empty dreams of mine
Are out of place and out of time
Is just a grain of sand for me

Seasons change
Memories fade
Daydreams fall like golden leaves

Another day
I'm watching dreams just slip away
The summer moon
Gives way to autumn's dusky bloom
Seeds I've sown
Are almost spent, I'm here alone

Wandering I roam
Beneath the half light of forgotten sunsets
Searching for my home

Inside this lonely place
I'm chasing shadows like a wasp in October
Fading in the wind

Seasons change
Memories fade
Daydreams fall like golden leaves

Um dia de mas
Meu sonho desapareceu
Lua no céu
Rio da noite, coração
Sozinha aqui
Você não lembra mais de mim

Another day
I'm watching dreams just slip away
The summer moon
Gives way to autumn's dusky bloom
Seeds I've sown
Are almost spent, I'm here alone

Bring it home

( Featuring Imogen Heap )

Oh anything's possible
Oh anything's possible

In motion the seeds of each moment
(Oh anything's possible)
Travel collide and react

In motion the seeds of each moment
Travel collide and react

In motion the seeds of each moment
Travel collide and react

We're in this together
We're in this together
We're in this together
We're in this together...

Thick and thin
Bonded
Atomic
Like it or not
We're the same stuff

Equal and opposite
Equal and opposite
Equal and opposite
Equal and opposite...

Oh anything's possible...

We're in this together
Equal and opposite
Bring it home
Anything's possible
Equal and opposite
Bring it home

My soul

( Featuring Paul McCartney )

I long to know all your secrets
I want to walk through your fire
Light up my eyes with your smile

I was awakened by magic
I was alone in this world
Take me away from here

Life�s being run at a blistering pace
I�ve been shot from a gun
To your final embrace

My soul, your heart, two worlds apart
This life is all we have

How could this steal all these feelings
How could they lie to this world
A picture away from your smile

Life�s being run at a blistering pace
I�ve been shot from a gun
To your final embrace

My soul, your heart, two worlds apart
This life is all we have

One soul displaced
One heart replaced
Feelings defaced
Invade our space
No one left to give us back our time

Climb every mountain
Swim through every sea
When all the world is asleep
We could set ourselves free

My soul, your heart, two worlds apart
This life is all we have
Hmm yeah

We could climb every mountain
Swim through every sea
When all the world is asleep
Yeah we could set ourselves free

We could climb every mountain
Swim through every sea
When all the world is asleep
Yeah we could set ourselves free

My soul, your heart, two worlds apart
This life

Distant Dreams

( Featuring Roxanne Tataei )

This city
Everywhere I go
I see faces I know
All in their different zones

As we’re flying
Through this world underground
And my eyes are wide shut
I’m not hearing a sound

Time standing still
Surrounded by sad hearts unfulfilled
Empty places for the disenchanted
Pass and fade away

Distant dreams
Where I go
Distant dreams
When I’m low
As they echo in my head

Distant dreams
How they flow
Distant dreams
Moving slow
As I’m falling out of time
I still have distant dreams here in my mind

Faces distorted by pressure
Everyone forced together
Spilling out through the doors

No more spaces
It’s a dog-eat-dog world
And a mad free-for-all
Maybe room for one more

Time standing still
Surrounded by sad hearts unfulfilled
Empty places for the disenchanted
Pass and fade away

Distant dreams
Where I go
Distant dreams
When I’m low
As they echo in my head

Distant dreams
How they flow
Distant dreams
Moving slow
As I’m falling out of time
I still have distant dreams here in my mind

Distant dreams
Where I go
Distant dreams
When I’m low
As they echo – echo - in my head

Distant dreams
How they flow
Distant dreams
Moving slow
As heartbreak surrounds me
And heartache has found me

Distant dreams
Where I go
Distant dreams
When I’m low
As they echo in my head

Distant dreams
How they flow
Distant dreams
Moving slow
As I’m falling out of time
I still have distant dreams here in my mind

Ek Jaan

( Featuring Reena Bhardwaj )

Chaaron dishaaon mein ye daastaan ho
Ek dil, ek dang, ek jaan

Chaaron dishaaon mein ye daastaan ho
Ek dil, ek dang, ek jaan

Sarhad nah he koyi yahaan
Khuli ye zameen he, khula aasmaan

One soul

( Featuring Reena Bhardwaj )

In every direction, let this be the philosophy
One heart, one colour, one soul

In every direction, let this be the philosophy
One heart, one colour, one soul

There are no boundaries here
The earth is open, open is the sky

Transmission

( Featuring Tina Grace )

Feel the sunshine from the radio
Feel the sunshine from the radio
Disconnect my mind from traffic
Beaming through the London static
Shelter from the rain

Feel the sunshine from the radio
Feel the sunshine from the radio
Sycophantic, laughing, manic
Same old, same old, same old's all I hear

Hear the punch line on the radio
Hear the punch line on the radio
Voices weaving
Smokescreen dreaming
Cold, deceiving
Cloud my hearing
Shelter from the rain
Shelter from the rain

Sell the same line through the radio
Sell the same line through the radio
Through the airwaves
Dayligh breaking
Empty promise, living, faking

Is this all there is...

Radio...

Last Train To Midnight

( Featuring Aruba Red )

Journey no friend of mine
Journey no friend of mine
Not this space
Not this time
Journey no friend of mine
No moonlit safety
Haste speed me

Last Days Of Meaning

The Devil and Midnight

Deep beneath the devil and midnight hours you threw away
Painting years of rain clouds waiting for a day
Nothing comes from killing time
As you crawl inside your mind
Close your eyes and blame the world

Oh if you could the change the world
From within the lines of your precious is done
Arm's length's a perfect prison right inside your home
It's an easy life for the angry kind for a heart that's growing cold

Just close your eyes and blame the world
Just close your eyes and blame the world
Close your eyes, and blame the world

And words will never reveal sincere emotion when the soul chooses to hide
Nothing colder than dead compassion hiding behind the eyes
If you keep the venom behind your lips a kiss could make you cry
And ashamed you lied and blamed the world

Blaming the world, inside your mind
The answers whistling on down the line
Blaming the world, inside your mind
The answers whistling on down the line

It's a sin you deny the gift that's given a circle of a lie
Revealing every emotion if only in good time
The wind will blow wind truer than any fear residing in your mind

Just close your eyes and blame the world
Blaming the world, inside your mind
The answers whistling on down the line
Blaming the world, inside your mind
The answers whistling on down the line
Blaming the world, inside your mind
The answers whistling on down the line
