Written by Vasu Dixit/Hitesh Kewalya, Composed by Swarathma Translated by Shreya Dasgupta A river, a thirsty river, leave me be Your thirst I quenched, now what of me? Tied in twists, no longer running free Tears are all that’s left of me I was happy being water, why the insanity? From whence do I come, whither do I go? Of your language and your barriers, what do I know? What being was it that poisoned your minds… Erased human thoughts, left puppets behind? Return O rain-cloud, from whence you came Alas the mighty ocean shall never know my name You still think I am holy? Dead souls I can save? Begone with your ashes, give me the peace I crave A river, a thirsty river, leave me be I was happy being water, why your insanity?
