lyrics

_

chorus:
kanrin thaye kanrin thaye en per enna * (a fly asks) mother of the calf! mother of the calf! what is my name? *

who am i, never seem to fit
always a bit sticking out somewhere
i’m caught between a tradition so old
and one that unfolds constantly

ancient dreams come to me at night, by morning they disappear
my eyes see images so new, nothing’s clear

i try to place the pieces of the jigsaw
together to make the whole
picture reveal itself to me
so i can see into my soul

chorus

where do i belong, which one’s the home
i can call my own will i ever know
so torn between the old and the new
how do i choose which way to go

ancient dreams come to me at night, by morning they disappear
my eyes see images so new, nothing’s clear

i look into my heart and ask the question
and hope that i will find
the answer to ease the confusion
i live with all the time

chorus

bridge:
thaye maikare ayan * the fly asks the man who takes the cows to graze
ayan kaiyil kole * the fly asks the stick that he carries in his hand
kol irikira marame * the fly asks the tree that the stick comes from
marathil irrikira kokke * the fly asks the rooster that sits on the tree
en per enna? * what is my name?

who am i, never seem to fit
always a bit sticking out somewhere

i look into my heart and ask the question
and hope that i will find
the answer to ease the confusion
i live with all the time

chorus

about

PINKNOISE Kolkata, India

PINKNOISE, formed in 2006, is the mischievous late night alter-ego to indie pioneers Skinny Alley.

Their debut studio full length, The Dance Of The Diaspora, was released in 2014 after a tumultuous two years during which time the band lost its bassist Gyan Singh to illness.

He is survived by Jayashree Singh (voice, stories), Amyt Datta (guitar, synthesizers) and Jivraj Singh (drums, design).
