Kismet

Kismet kismet aye meri kismet
Tu mera lamha aye meri kismet
Tu mera karma aye meri kismet
Kismet kismet aye meri kismet

I was walking back in time
To the moment I first saw you
It was monsoon as is now
And the rain poured inside both of us

The storm we fled to get away
In your attic room remember
I don?t dwell on starting over
But today I want the past to find me

What was I looking for
When I had all I ever wanted
Now I look far across this desert
At my green grass

And I saw Buddha there
And I met Jesus there
And I heard Hendrix there
And I felt Shiva there
And I touched Gandhi there
And Andy Warhol there
He just didn?t care
He was in his underwear

And they said "Aaaaaaa"

Kismet kismet aye meri kismet
Tu mera lamha aye meri kismet
Tu mera karma aye meri kismet
Kismet kismet aye meri kismet

(translation:)
Destiny, this is my destiny
you are my moment, this is my destiny
you are my karma (action), this is my destiny
destiny, this is my destiny

Om Baba

Om bhoor bhuwah swaha
Tat savitur vareynyam
Bhargo devasyadhee mahi
Dhiyo yo naha prachodayat

When I'm dirty you wash me clean
Only you can make me bleed
Aaaaaa
Om baba bababa
Om mama mama
Only you can make me scream
Only you can shake me
Break me into tiny pieces of love

Om tat savitur savitur
Tat tat savitur
Savitur vareynyam
Vareynyagum savitur
Bhargo devasyadhi mahi
Dhi mahi tee dhee mahi
Dhi mahi tee dhee mahi
Dhiyo yo yo
Dhiyo dhiyo yaha
Yo no no, yo yo na
Yo no no, yo yo na
Na prachodayat

Om bhoor bhuwah swaha
Tat savitur vareynyam
Bhargo devasyadhee mahi
Dhiyo yo naha prachodayat

The individual words and characters of the Mantra have a meaning of
their own than can be defined as follows:

 Om: The primeval sound that represents Brahma
 Bhur: The physical world that embodies the vital spiritual energy or 'Pran'
 Bhuvah: The mental world and destroyer of all sufferings
 Swaha: The celestial and spiritual world that embodies happiness
 Tat: That or God, referring to transcendental Paramatma (Ultimate Spirit)
 Savithur: The Bright Sun or the Creator and Preserver of World
 Varenyam: Best or most adorable
 Bhargo: Destroyer of all sins
 Devasya: Divine Deity or Supreme Lord
 Dheemahi: We meditate upon and take in
 Dhiyo: The Intellect
 Yo: The Light
 Nah: Our
 Prachodayath: Inspire or Enlighten

Thus, the Gayatri Mantra can be translated as follows:

We meditate on the glory of the Creator
Who has created the Universe
Who is worthy of Worship
Who is the embodiment of Knowledge and Light
Who is the remover of all Sin and Ignorance
May He enlighten our Intellect

My Friends

Hum Sikee Tum Boom Chow Um Lum Dayo Dayo Chum
Hum Sikee Tum Boom Chow Um Layo my friends

There's a feeling inside of me
Somehow it pulls me on through
It moves me and shakes me
I'm out of control
It brings me closer
To you

Humma Humma
Humma Humma
Humma Humma

(Suno re suno re suno re suno re
Goon goonati hain goon)

To you

I have a dream of a slow moving hand
That takes me out of myself
And it pulls me around
And touches my soul
And turns me into somebody else
You're taking your time
You're wrecking my mind
Speak to me now
Speak to me now

I'm movin', I'm shakin', I'm rockin', I'm quakin'
You're tryin', I'm cryin', You're livin', I'm dyin'
But it helps me to call you my friends

Humma Humma
Humma Humma
Humma Humma

My friends
My friends

Hum Sikee Tum Boom Chow Um Lum Dayo Dayo Chum

Everything

As the sun shines down on me
With all the things that life is supposed to be
As the rain touches my skin
I have everything

I have everything
I have everything

Then why can't I see
Then why can't I feel
Then why can't I breathe

Yadee dhoop nay vada nibhaya (if the sun keeps it's promise)
Aur baarish nay jism chu aa (and the rain touches my skin)

Don't let me fall

Then why can't I see
Then why can't I feel
Then why can't I breathe

Don't let me fall

Khuda Khuda Khuda Khuda
Deva Deva Deva Deva
Khuda Khuda Khuda Khuda
Deva Deva Deva Deva

Can I take off my mask
At the end of the day
I remind you all
To show me the way

I have everything

I can see
I can feel
I can breathe

Silence

Om Namah Shivaya
Don't tread upon my silence

Cause it only gets louder

Om Namah Shivaya
Shivaya Cha (Ca)

Shivaya Cha Cha
Shivaya Shivaya Cha

Cause it only gets
She only gets louder

Om Namah Shivaya
Shivaya Cha

The earth is a dark prison
When you break her from the womb
The air is a bottled stranger
Just a lonely, lonely stranger

So don't tread upon my silence
So don't tread upon my silence

Don't tread upon my silence
Don't tread, don't tread, don't tread, don't tread upon..
My silence

Om Namah Shivaya Cha

Translation:
 Om is silence
 Na is earth
 Ma is water
 Si is fire
 Va is air
 Ya is ether

Om Namah Shivaya: I bow to you (Lord Shiva)

Space That Drops In

Like a whisper on a gentle breeze
The spell of nature's telling me
Life from life is all you need

Like a whisper on a gentle breeze
The spell of nature's telling me
Bless those feet
Bless those hands
You know where I will always be

Close your eyes and follow me
Hush my child now dream

Let the wind catch my hair
Just breathe into the morning air
Grateful, space that drops in

Close your eyes and follow me
Hush my child now dream
Close your eyes and follow me
Hush my child now dream

Dhoom dhinak dhoom
Dhinak nak dhoom

I'm ready
Na na na....
I'm ready
And I'm grateful, space that drops in

Close your eyes and follow me
Hush my child now dream

Hush my child
Now dream

Dhoom dhinak dhoom
Dhinak nak dhoom

Where India Begins

Where the air is a little dryer
And the guns are a little higher
The hotels are a little colder
And the buildings a little older

The cycle's a little rustier
And the train's a little dustier
The homes are a little holier

That's where India begins
That's where India begins

Take me home
My mother and my father
Miss me so
They look out through their window

The bazaars are a little gaudier
And the rich are a little hautier
The magazines are a little naughtier
The gharrywallahs are a little bawdier

That's where India begins
That's where India begins

That's where India begins
That's where India begins

Take me home
My mother and my father
Miss me so
They look out through their window

Take me home
My mother and my father
Miss me so
They look out through their window

Where the stars are a little whiter
And the nights are a little quieter
And the future a little brighter

Send me home
My mother and my father
Miss me so
They look out through their window
