Black & White

At times, I deserve to be punished
But most of the time, I deserve better
I deserve a better life
So I strive and strive
But life is a bitch
It turns around and bites
But it’s ok
I have got a tongue, sharper than the knife.

At times, I deserve to be cherished
But most of the time, my dreams perish
Sometimes I just need to stay out of sight
Should not see the world in black and white
May be, I should embrace the light
I guess I’ll give it a try
This one last mistake, might put things right!

Deewar

Koe mur gaya aaj meray ander
duub gaya dard ka derya meray ander

taqdeer tou likhi gaye aasmano main
aur yeh zameen bangaee apna muqadder

teri qurbat, azaab thi meray gunahon ki
teri furqat main mera dil bana mandir

thaa madhosh , mager tishna thaa
payas meri na bhuja paya sara samander

Jo thaa maimar-e-mohabbat, usi nay
chun di nafrat ki dewaar meray ander

Regression

We are earthlings, we talk about earth,
We don’t care about the heaven, we don’t know what it’s worth
We are made of sand, crawl on this ancient land,
We don't fancy stars, we just like to read our hands

We are trapped in a tiny grain,
The past, etched into our primitive brains
We don't need to aim high, still busy discovering fire,
You carry on exploring space, we'll vanish without a trace.

Gumaan

Is masroof jahan main
khuda ko bhi koe kaam hai?
Yaa jab se bani hai kainaat
khuda mehw-e-araam hai?
Kya khuda qaadir-ul-kalam hai?
Ager hai tou woh is ghari,
kis say humkalam hai?
Koe uska hum zubaan hai?
Aur ager woh baizubaan hai
Tou wo khuda hai ya gumaan hai?

13

Khwaab hum saaray udhaar laitay hain
fursat main tujhay bhi pukaar laitay hain

aisee mohabbat ke nahi hum qaa’el
bewafaaon ko hum dil se utaar daitay hain

jo turbat pe meri, parhay fatheha
bad’duain usaay baishumaar daitay hain

aata nahi hamain aansu bahana,
ashk derya se hum mustaar laitay hain

jin ke seenon main dil he nahi
log unhi pe dil apnay haar daitay hain.

I have seen the future and I have left it behind (Black Sabbath)

Sadyon jaisa hur lamha
thair gaye hain arz-o-samaa
hur ek manzar, ek pehailee
hur zarray main ek jahan

Dharkan, dharkan
kun-o-fanaa
hur ek shay main tera nishan
jo tujh se ho ker guzaar gaye
wo jain to phir jayen kahan?

The shadow

All ya crazies
Roses and Daisies
Drop your thorns
and get off your phones
The chill is coming
Go hide your bones

All ya crazies
The shadow from Hades
Awaits you there
To stifle your fears
Scream aloud
So he could hear

Lift your veils
Death never fails
Gonna get y'all
Fresh or stale

All ya crazies
Roses and Daisies
Drop your thorns
and get off your phones
The chill is coming
Go hide your bones
