Have you ever walked up in the air,
Felt your body isn’t there
Want to go into space?
Till you must of last your face
Move into a world
you can call your own
Come on follow me
Pop a few pills of L.S.D.
You’ll get there faster than the speed of light,
no you’ll never get there on an airplane flight
A place where lights all flash around,
Where pain an happiness is just cut out,
So floot into your new
Come on, follow me
Only a few pills of L.S.D.

I was only eight now when you called me black
The colour that, whats the colour of sunset,
Then night isn’t white, what colour is death
Don’t turn your back, the world isn’t multi colour
Its just white and black
There’s more colour on the rack
So don’t paint the world
White and Black
You think your intelligent & strong
You’re white, you have the rights
I am black, weak and wrong
The world runs on colour
not red, blue, green or yellow
But dull drab, white and black
O great so you’re white
Yourself don’t get a fright
Thats blood, it’s not wine,
It’s the same as mine
Don’t stare into my face and turn away
I ‘am a man not swine,
Look into your great bag
There are other colour at the bottom,
You wouldn’t paint the rainbow
White and Black

Buildings touching the sky,
Yet millions homeless,
Why? There's money enough for war,
But million starve What for?
New drugs to bring back smiles,
How come so many die, like flies,
Poverty and pain abound,
There's hundred all around,
And we call ourselves
Masters of the Universe.
Babies born outside the womb,
Given life inside a tube,
Even walking on the moon,
Trips into space for everyone, coming soon
Machines can talk, some can ever Walk,
Money we've got plenty, Gold and Silver too,
May be were Masters of the Universe.
Nuclear bombs so small, no bigger than a ball
Missiles that fly so fast, there's one to beat the last,
And with arsenals so huge, there'll be no place to take refuge,
We could have some place
If only everybody didn't want to become
Masters of the Universe.

Upon my sick bed lonely I lie,
pain numbing my head,
Up in the dark sky,
I see visions of death.
A shot in the darkness,
a bright yellow flash,
Tearing the darkness,
opening a deep gash,
Slowly I fall down,
all bloody and red,
And then I wake up,
it’s only a vision of death.
Then I drift back,
do you see what I see,
The hangman’s noose,
it’s ready for me,
tightening around my head,
Eyes popping out of my head,
But then I realise,
it’s just another vision of death.

Big and bad pushing seventeen,
Thinking back, one hell of a ride this has been
It started one day, smoking pot and rolling in the hay
Life was a dream when I started
The Journey of my life
Then I moved into first I grew so did my thirst
By the time I moved into third
I was moving so fast I didn’t even notice
The highway zooming past in
The Journey of my life
I didn’t even know
When I shifted into fourth Or stepping on the Gas
Things just happened
So fast I shot a man
Got into a Van and continued through
The Journey of my life Now I’m twenty four
And moving slow
Circling around death row They caught up one day` and threw me in jail
Without any bail
And one of these days,
They’re going to
jam brakes to
The journey of my life.

Will there be a tomorrow
Will the sun shine again,
Will there be blue skies
Or just darkness and pain,
Which of the top powers
Will it come from.
Who'll have the pleasure
Of dropping the bomb,
Will it be Russia,
Could be even India
Even America could
Give us the darkness and pain.
When will we see
That spectacular sight,
The beautiful orange mushroom
Could it be tonight,
Won't it make a pretty sight
Corpses lying everywhere,
The land bloody red
And the planet plunged in despair.
So make up your mind now
Decide your fate,
‘Cause even tomorrow
Could be too late.

Jehar Bhi Hua Be

Pilaho mujhe iss adha se pilaho
Pi janth bhi aaye nazar pithe pithe

Mila zakham aisa batana hai mushkil
Kate abh tho shayad umar pite pite

Kissi ne khushi chin li jab se meri
Gujarthe hai - shamo-shaher pite pite

Ye sara shaher math kuda lag raha hai
Hua mujhpe aisa asar pite pite

Uss jab se rakh sat woh pe loon semere
kate mere aton pahr pite pite

Agar maut bhi aaye thohai ye mumkin
Ajal ki bane hum safar pite pite

Hard Rock Cafe1

Located in a former mill, the Mumbai outpost of the US chain of resto-bars has a mixed reputation among the city's musicians. In the first couple of years after opening, in 2006, indie rock acts were often asked to include a stipulated number of cover songs in their set lists. These days, Hard Rock Café, which hosts gigs every Tuesday and Thursday night, sticks mostly to cover bands, with a couple of dates a month spared for indie groups. Skip these gigs, and come here only for the ticketed events, when one of the seating areas is cleared to make room for a larger stage, for performances by Indian indie icons (folk-fusion veterans Indian Ocean, electro-rock superstars Pentagram), international chart toppers (Wyclef Jean, Jay Sean) or club-packing DJs (Bob Sinclair, Paul van Dyk). Be warned, though: the waiters break into a synchronised jig every time the Village People's "YMCA" comes on.

Bombay Dyeing Mill Compound, Pandurang Budhkar Marg, Worli, + 91 22 2438 2888, Open daily noon-1.30am. Performance times and entrance fees vary
