They Don’t Know (Ek Ajnabee)

This song is the perfect depiction of all the negative struggles and challenges that are an inevitable part of life, and makes anything I am going through seem okay. Here is the link to the video followed by lyrics and lyric translation in English.

What have you done?

Why have you blanked out, my son?
What do you think I’m gonna do now?
They’ll be coming right after you now.
Do you know what it is to die?
Can I have your God damned soul to fry?
You’re going down, dog. You’re going down.
You’re gonna get a blast between your eyes.

Drama, lies, guns, fights.

Deceit, fraud, everywhere it’s the same.
This city, that village, this sunlight, that shade.
Everyone’s feet are tired.
Talks, meetings, wasting of time
Increasing population everywhere.
Tears, embrace, love, bullets.
Mourning, death, bloodshed.
Pail, burial, pyre, fire
Hatred, anger, rage
Losing husbands, losing children
Increasing sorrow, double misery
Murder, rape, screams of innocents
Exploitation, cheating, pollution, disgust

They don’t know, who is he?

They don’t know, who is he?

Streets, police, system, trouble

There is bullying all around
Imprisonment, hullabaloo, resentment, conspiracy
Revenge is prime
Gangs, bail, warrants, hurdles
Life’s problems and a broken heart
Days, weeks, months, years
All around is a web of failure
In the heart of man rose a question for God
Why is your creation in this state?
Silence spoke when the shadow of blood fell
There was a question in the heart,
Why did this moment come?
Lawyer, court case, dates, debates
Rid the world of these problems

Can I have your god damned soul to fry?
You’re going down dog, you’re going down.
I’ll blast you between your eyes

Injustice, ignorance, superficial lies

Everywhere you look, chaos does rise
Stereotype, judgments, discrimination
Racism, inequality
Trafficking, kidnapping, no way out
Either way you see it, death awaits
One day, let the world see peace

(There is a third verse but I was unable to find an English translation for it; you can find it below in Hindi)

Hindi Lyrics:

What Have you done?
why have u blacked up my son?
what people think am gonna do now?
think of coming right after you now?
do u know what it is to die?
can i have ur goddamn soul to fry?
u goin down dawg , u goin down, son of a bi**h am gona
blast u between ur eyes

natak jhooth banduke aur dhaal
farebi makkari har taraf yahi haal
yeh shehar woh gaon yeh dhup woh chaanve
thake thake se har kisike paanv
baatein mulakatein waqt ki barbadi
badhti hui har taraf aabadi
aansu aalingan pyar aur boli
mayyat khak khoon ki holi
kafan dafan chita aag
bachi fakat rakh hi rakh
maang ujadna godon ka suna hona
gam badhna dard dur ho na
hatya balatkar massomon ki chit ka
shoshan dhokha gandgi
they don’t know who is he – 4

galiyan police system pareshani
chalti hui yahan dhurt manmaani
kaalakar hahakaar khunda shadyantra
badle ki bhavna ka ubja hua mantra
abhiyog saman waraant mushkil
zindahi ke dhakke aur toota hua dil
din hafta mahine aur saal
faila hua charon taraf nakami ka jaal
mann mein ubaal khuda se sawaal
aakhir hua kyu tere bande ka yeh haal
khamoshi si aayi khoon ki jab parchai
sawaal tha dil mein yeh ghadi kyu aayi
vakil mukadma tarikh ladaai
uljhan bitch jaan chudwai
they dont know what is he – 2

jhagda panga churebaazi
behas khoon ke bhare hue bhitar woh hain
dukh takleefein pareshani baar baar
saamne dikhawa aur peeth pe waar
lachar jeene ki dushwari
nirbal beemar jurm ki karaari
dosti yaari jhooti hain yeh saari
sabke dilon mein chalaki makkari
dikhawa chalava nakli pehnaava
khokhali yeh baatein aur sab hai behkawa
chhal ghoda aur jhootha mann
naam ke apne yeh bana wardipan
khaalis hai yeh baal hai saaf
aastin ke saap ki hai jyada nahi baat
they don’t know who is he – 4

natak jhooth banduke aur dhaal
farebi makkari har taraf yahi haal
jhagda panga churebaazi
behas khoon ke bhare hue bhitar woh hain
