Track Name: Mr. Funkesh
Tired and spent is this body of mine
But the end is nowhere near
The path that I am on right now
Is uncertain and filled with fear

I push, to reach a higher purpose
In a life with ups and downs
The road that I so dearly seek
Is nowhere to be found

I’m so lost, (I’m so lost, I’m so lost)
In this futile race of life
It all seems so insignificant
In the face of eternal time

A light is what I need
Coz, I’m stuck in this rabbit hole
A light is what I need
To reach a higher goal

I began to see, life for what it is
It’s not that hard to miss
A lovely illusion

I began to hear the sound of emptiness
It’s not that hard to guess
The only reality

A light is what I need
In this abyss so deep
A prolonged state of sleep
That feels like forever

A light is what I need
Coz, I’m stuck in this hole
In this search for a higher goal
I don’t know where to go

So I come to you and you already know
You led me through and here I go

So I come to you and you already know
You led me through and here I go

Now I perceive the truth as absolute
No distortion, no dispute
The purest emotion

The curtains have lifted off to repeal the darkness
From the bones and from the flesh
It’s liberating

A light is what I have
In this abyss so deep
To wake up from the sleep
That was on forever

A light is what I have
Coz, I’m stuck in this hole
In this search for a higher goal
Now I know where to go

So I come to you and you already know
You led me through and here I go

So I come to you and you already know
You led me through and here I go

Track Name: Confused Hypocrisy
I complain that the world is a pain
And all the efforts put to change are going in vain
I look at the sky and I see no stars
But still, I leave the train and drive my car

I sing a song but I still don’t care
I ask people to do it without doing my share
I want to be the martyr of this cause
But I got no solutions and all I see are flaws

Now, you call it what you want it to be
Confused, Hypocrisy
Confused Hypocrisy, Oh yeah
You wanna be

I’m the one supposed to clean up this place
But I would rather cut the trees down to make more space
I’m the one with the power of thought
But annihilation is all I brought

And now, you call it what you want it to be
Confused, Hypocrisy
Confused Hypocrisy, Oh yeah
You wanna be

We fear the dark and switch on the lights
But don’t turn it off do you think it’s all right
We fill our plates, greedy, we’re so greedy
We waste all the food when it could feed the needy

We dig and dig deep into the ground
For unwanted riches that are nowhere to be found
We can’t go on like this, nature will attack
It’s there to nurture us please don’t stab it in the back

So, go home think about it
Are you doing your part
This is our message
Straight from the heart
Track Name: Vishwaroopam
They pulled me down, they dragged me
To a point where I've been feeling so low
And now I'm recollecting all the strength
To fight them back so here we go

I am the raging fire
I have the burning desire
I will keep flying higher
But you'll pull me down

I am the one you rejected
I am the one you hated
You thought you had me defeated
But I'm back to show

Keep your hands off me
I will learn to grow
No more sympathies
Time for me to show
No stopping me now
I'm no more my own foe
I will reach the skies
Heights that you won't know

Mannai thaandi Vinnai thaandi, Vishwaroopam eduthaen
Indha bhoomi matrum kadal muzhuvathum, kaatrai pola sendraen

Mannai thaandi Vinnai thaandi, Vishwaroopam eduthaen
Indha bhoomi matrum kadal muzhuvathum, kaatrai pola sendraen

(I grew beyond the earth and the skies)
(I cruised like the wind through the lands and the oceans)

And now, I can't comprehend
The notion that in competition with myself
I still manage to lose
And now, I realize
The pseudo inside of me
Desperately needs to die

Mannai thaandi Vinnai thaandi, Vishwaroopam eduthaen
Indha bhoomi matrum kadal muzhuvathum, kaatrai pola sendraen

Mannai thaandi Vinnai thaandi, Vishwaroopam eduthaen
Indha bhoomi matrum kadal muzhuvathum, kaatrai pola sendraen

Mannai thaandi Vinnai thaandi, Vishwaroopam eduthaen
Indha bhoomi matrum kadal muzhuvathum, kaatrai pola sendraen

Mannai thaandi Vinnai thaandi, Vishwaroopam eduthaen
Indha bhoomi matrum kadal muzhuvathum, kaatrai pola sendraen

Track Name: Boondein
Thandi si hawaein bulaye mujhe
Khushboo saundhi mitti ki aaye mujhe
Baadalon se ho jaaoon roobaroo
Ehsaas hai aisa main kya karoon

Giri jo yeh boondein hua main begana
Ghire kale baadal hua main deewana
Giri jo yeh boondein hua main begana
Ghire kale baadal hua main deewana

Patte bhi hawa ke sang udd chale
Baatein karke lag jaaye mere gale
Is pal mein ho jaaoon main fanaa
Sab kuch bhool kar khush hoon bepanah

Giri jo yeh boondein hua main begana
Ghire kale baadal hua main deewana
Giri jo yeh boondein hua main begana
Ghire kale baadal hua main deewana

Garaj jaa, baras jaa, garaj jaa, hey

Ghire kale baadal hua main deewana
Track Name: Rockuvamsa
Dil se nikli hai yeh dua ki
Chale aaon hai tu jahan
Dil se nikli hai yeh dua ki
Chale aaon hai tu jahan

Ki main aaj kho jaun, mit jaun in palon mein
Jisme tere nishan
Ki main aaj kho jaun, mit jaun in palon mein
Jisme tere nishan

Yeh baadal, yeh nadiyan, yeh sooni si galiyan
Pooche ki tu kahan
Yeh baadal, yeh nadiyan, yeh sooni si galiyan
Pooche ki tu kahan

Ki ab woh yaadon ki kashti mujhe le chale
Mile the hum jahan
Ki ab woh yaadon ki kashti mujhe le chale
Mile the hum jahan
Track Name: Echoes of Liberation
Aag lagi, uth raha hai dhuan
Dhoondoon main, insaan hai kahan
Sarhadein bani, par kaun sun raha
Nafrat ki is aag mein jalta yeh jahaan

Aag lagi, uth raha hai dhuan,
Dhoondoon main, insaan hai kahan
Sarhadein bani, par kaun sun raha
Nafrat ki is aag mein jalta yeh jahaan

Dariya jharne aur nadi
Yeh sab hain yahaan
Badan pe lage is laal ko
Main dhoun kahaan

Dariya jharne aur nadi
Yeh sab hain yahaan
Badan pe lage is laal ko
Main dhoun kahaan

My hands are tied, I’m being forced
To drive this world, into a hole
The bullet that I put through your heart
Rips out through my soul

I want to stop, I’ve had enough
I don’t want to see this red
The bullet that I put through your heart
Wish I could put it through my head

Dariya jharne aur nadi
Yeh sab hain yahaan
Badan pe lage is laal ko
Main dhoun kahaan

Dariya jharne aur nadi
Yeh sab hain yahaan
Badan pe lage is laal ko
Main dhoun kahaan
Track Name: Afterlife
A long and sunny day it was
There was a gentle breeze
It was around noon time
When I started to freeze

It was quite painless
They said it was a clot
And I’m standing here by myself
Leaving my body to rot

Hey
Is this the afterlife? Oh yeah
Hey hey hey hey hey hey

Hey
Is this the afterlife? Oh yeah
Hey hey hey hey hey hey

Hey! Let’s dance
Straight up or upside down
Hey! Let’s dance
The feet are backwards but I groove along
Afterlife
