The winds of justice (song)




The piano bar
Covers this dusty French town,
As children’s hopes border the sun
Bloody planes carries the night away
Traveller ! Your voice is fading,
Up in the sky – I saw you aching
I saw you becoming a bird
Accompanied in your flight
By the winds of justice

I was looking for love
I was looking for glory
Like a hollow fool
In the midst of history


Take me to the mountains of hope,
So  that I catch fire and burn prime ministers
For my love for you made me understand
That we are all doomed birds
But doomed souls that can stand !
You were that bird beautiful and crimson
Disintegrated by rogue suns
Politicians sipping money
As floods ripped their families

I lost my address in your path
Never thought of the aftermath
Your smile was the candle that lighted my past
It’s been many years, I saw a bird cast
Drowning into insensitive skies
Bullets were pouring on verandahs
Freedom chaining shadows of a newspaper
Bangladesh still remembers its birds
Take my hand forget the crimes they do to our souls
Let’s walk in this mountain of trust let’s be fools
Their snow have gifted us a pretext to make love
Let’s get mad and drunk reading the hints of suns –

Lying on a rooftop in Bengal, under a scorched sun
Your mind deserted by its past glow
You talked to me about fighting black clouds
My pain was salt on my soul, salt
On my eyes –
As I saw many other birds falling
From my dull window
A doyel bird poured like accusing rain
Followed by million others
Bangladesh closed its eyes

The piano bar
Covers this dusty French town,
As our children’s hopes border the sun
Bloody planes carries the night away
Traveller ! Your voice is fading,
Up in the sky – I saw you aching
I saw you becoming a bird
Accompanied in your flight
By the winds of justice
