Lyrics:

SOLDIER PIGEON

WHAT ARE WE BUT THE KEEP OF THE SAME BREED
DUSTY SCENT OF THE AIR WE BREATHE
COMES DOWN FROM THE LANDS WE CEASED

REFLECTION IN OUR WATER SAYS
WE LOOK THE SAME AS YOU
THE THOUGHTS OF PEACE WE HAVE INSIDE
I KNOW YOU FEEL THEM TOO

SOLDIER PIGEON IS AT THE DOOR
KNOCKING FOR SOME COMFORT
HE WANTS TO FLY AWAY
DON’T WANNA FIGHT NO MORE

HUMWATAN HUMSAFAR KI BAATON
KE GEET GAATI YE WADIYAN
TANHA RAATON MEIN APNO KI HAI
YAAD LAATI YEH WAADIYAN

UDNE KA MAN HAI, MERA WATAN BHI
MUJHSE HI MILNE KO HAI RUKA
SAB CHHOD DU MAIN AB NA LADU MAIN,
KHWAABON MEIN MERE AISA JAHAN

MONOLOGUE:
TINKE KI NAAV PE IK UMRA SI KATTI HAI
IN KAMBAKHT FIZAAAON MEIN TO DOORIYAN BHI BATTI HAI
SATH RAHA NAHI JATA, SATH RAHE BHI JAATE HAI
NAPAAK IRAADON KA ZULM SALA SAHE BHI JAATE HAI

BEGAIRAT SI HUKUMAT KI AADAT HO CHALI HAI
APNE ARMAANON KI CHITA, TO IN BAAGHON MEIN JALI HAI
HAR ZAKHM PEEPAL KE PATTO SA HARA HAI
HAR GHAR MEIN KOI NA KOI APNA JO MARA HAI

SOLDIER PIGEON IS AT THE DOOR
KNOCKING FOR SOME COMFORT
HE WANTS TO, FLY AWAY
DON’T WANNA FIGHT NO MORE

SOLDIER PIGEON IS GONNA SOAR
HIGH ABOVE THE HEAVEN
AND ONCE AGAIN FOREVER
SO HE COULD FIGHT NO MORE…

The Aphids

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHAT GOES THROUGH THE MINDS OF THE PEOPLE WHO ARE RISKING THEIR LIVES TRYING TO SAVE WHICH IS ALREADY THEIR. OUR SOLDIERS IN KASHMIR HAVE TO FIGHT FOR THE RIGHT TO BREATHE ON A LAND WHICH IS SAID TO BE THE LAND OF THE GODS, THE HEAVEN ON EARTH.
I BELIEVE IN THE FACT THAT MAYBE, THE PEOPLE WHO ARE FIGHTING THERE, THE SOLDIERS, MAYBE THEY DON’T WANT IT. MAYBE THEY WANT PEACE MORE THAN ANYONE ELSE, MAYBE THEY WANT TO GO BACK AND LIVE WITH THEIR FAMILIES BECOZ THEY MISS THEM TOO MUCH. MAYBE, BECOZ THEY KNOW THE OBVIOUS THAT GUNS CAN NEVER RESULT IN PEACE.
THEY SEE PEOPLE DYING EVERYDAY, SOMETIMES THROUGH THEIR MISTAKES SOMETIMES THROUGH SOMEONE ELSE’S AND HOW DIFFICULT IT IS FOR EVERY FAMILY TO SUFFER THROUGH THE LOSS OF THAT SOMEONE . THE ENDLESS WAR IN THE SO CALLED HEAVEN MAKES IT WORSE THAN HELL.
EVERYBODY MOURNS THE DEATH OF THEIR LOVED ONES AND SO DO THEY. IT DOES NOT DEPEND ON WHICH NATION OR COMMUNITY YOU BELONG TO AND THEY KNOW IT. BUT UNFORTUNATELY THE POWER PRESSURING THEM TO SUFFER FOR ETERNITY IS NOT UNDERSTANDING THIS AND NOT AT ALL WORKING TO MAKE THINGS EASIER FOR THEM EVEN ON HUMANLY BASIS.
SOLDIER PIGEON IS A TRIBUTE TO ALL OF THEM RISKING THEIR LIVES IN THE UNFORTUNATE LANDS, SALUTING THEM AND PRAYING FOR A HAPPY ENDING TO THEIR MISERIES.
