The Judgement

Walk through the bazaar today 
with feet in chains;
Tears of rage are not enough,
Secret love is not enough,
Walk through the bazaar today 
with feet in chains;
With arms flung out 
In a dance of ecstasy,
With ashes on your head 
and a bloodstained cloak,
Walk through the city of lovers.
Walk through the bazaar today
with feet in chains.
Walk past the gaping crowds
of the great and small;
Past the slings and arrows of slander,
Past the unhappy dawn
And the oppressed day.
Walk though the bazaar today
with feet in chains.
In whom can they confide but me ?
I alone know who is sincere among lovers 
And who deserves to die.
Prepare yourselves, all you with
aching hearts - 
Come friends, let us go again
towards our death.

    -- song from the film 'In Custody'
       (performed by Zakir Hussain and Ustad Sultan Khan)








Watch the whole movie 'In Custody' on youtube - it's wonderful !
