I am Kashmir,
I carry people who kill, I carry dead corpses killed by them,
I cry when they kill you,
I die when the blood of you spills on the very existence of mine.
I carry mothers who sacrificed you,
I know you’re giving you’re best,
I want you to stand tall against all odds,
I want you not to be depressed,
I want you to drop off the arms,
I want you to use the sword of truth over the falsehood,
I believe in you and your guts,
I believe in fighting with unity for a unified cause over the tracks of peace and prosperity.
I bet you the oppressors are gonna come on their knees,
I bet you they’re gonna die down under your feet.
Just do what they did in the history,
When they were the oppressed and the oppressors were others.
See how they fought,
See what they thought,
You’ll get to know their state of mind,
You’ll get to know who are kind,
Start from an end,
Stop to pretend,
TRUTH IS YOUR WEAPON,
UNITY IS YOUR SHIELD,
SO TAKE A STEP AND GO TO THE REAL BATTLE FIELD
Repeat the history and make them feel the same,
Past is going to be the present,
Tomorrow is going to be bright,
History is getting repeated, they’re killing how they got killed.
They’ll set us free on their own because they know how it feels to get killed.
Their own people are going to fight for us,
Their own kids are going to cry for us,
Whether you believe it or not but this is gonna be real,
Unity and truth is going to set me free.
You are gonna set me free,
You are gonna set me free.
