lyrics

It takes brawn to pull the trigger and brains to know when
My weapon of choice, I take aim with the pen
These words my ammunition, a soldier on the battlefield
I take a shot through your speaker, tell me how'd it feel
Calling all soldiers, forget what they told us
A generation's older, parents can't hold us back
From spitting the truth, are they forgettin the proof
Are they forgetting that we are the unstoppable youth?
Call it rebellion, let em say I'm a hellion
They killin' baby girls at birth, what can I tell ya?
I gotta step in, I gotta go and shake ya
My words are my weapon, let the weight of 'em break ya
Feel the pain that I feel when I hear
That they bury baby girls alive, suck a tear back
Back home in the land I was born in
1984, Saint Soldier was sworn in
I've got a mission as a brother, as a young Sikh
As a lover of humanity, my tongue speaks
And it won't quit 'til my mission is complete
How many words can I fit on this one sheet?

[Chorus]
How many words can I fit on this one sheet?
Hey mister, that's my sister
Shoveled in the grave and nobody even kissed her
Hey mister, that's my sister

Kukh vich dhee nu maar den waliye,
Tu rabb kar ke bane na kade maa
Rabb kar ke bane na kade maa

The world's selfish, I cant help it ,
Honestly, it's been a while since i felt this,
Way about the world, wont listen to my sound
Ashes, ashes, we all fall down,
Dhiyaan na maro vayi,
Commiting murder in the womb and getting away,
And when i contemplate the problem, I get to the bottom,
But i find that at the bottom it's awfully rotten,
Cause we have falsified religion, the truth we've forgotten ,
And i will single out a coward as soon as i spot 'em,
Cause you think you have the right to break away at night
To sneak into clinic and to take away a life,
Of an unborn girl, who would have prospered in this world,
I bet she would have loved you, you make me wanna hurl,
The root of the problems, you can't accept what you've gotten,
You cant accept that you brought her,
Into this world she's your daughter, killed by mother and father.
Why? Why do I bother? Lord, help us!
Play the cards that you've dealt us
They want kings every hand it seems,
That doesn't mean they should be killing all the queens,

[Chorus]
Sister, sister, I wish I could have saved you
They cut off the umbilical and threw you in the grave, you
Were too young to die, too young, but I
Mourn for all my sisters in case nobody missed ya
It's a shame, you didn't get a name
But you're burning in my heart like a candle flame
Can't handle the pain, but I can hand the blame
To the bullshit culture that pan handles for fame ,
Respect our women, let's love and protect them,
Let's carry the weight and don't let it affect them
When you see somebody mistreat or diss her
You better step in cause she's your sister
Take it from soldier, the community is flawed
And it's time to fight back with unity and brawn
Intellect and the Guru on our side, no lie
We're unstoppable, together, you and I
Stand up my brothers, let's clean up like Pinesol
Society is blind, let's take off the blindfolds
Open up your eyes, it's the reason that I rhyme for
Fight for justice, trust, that's what it's time for but...

[Chorus]
