Pyaasa

Pyaasa ★★★★★

This world of palaces, of thrones, of crowns
This world of discrimination, enemy of man
This world of blind custom, hunger for wealth
Would I care if such a world were mine?

Bodies wounded, souls thirsty
Confusion in eyes, despondency in hearts
Is this a world or a place of bewilderment?
Would I care if such a world were mine?

Here a man's life is a plaything
Here live worshippers of the dead
Here life has no value, death comes cheaper
Would I care if such a world were mine?

Youth strays into crime
Young bodies are adorned for the marketplace
Here love is another name for trade
Would I care if such a world were mine?

This world where man counts for nothing
Loyalty and friendship count for nothing
Where love has no importance
Would I care if such a world were mine?

Burn it, blow this world away
Take this world away from my sight
Take charge of this world, you can keep it
Would I care if such a world were mine?
