Track Name: Sialkot
SUBH-E-AZADI (DAWN OF FREEDOM) - August 1947
By Faiz Ahmed Faiz

Ye daagh-daagh ujaalaa, ye shab-gaziida sahar,
Vo intizaar tha jis kaa, ye vo sahar to nahin

This stain-covered daybreak, this night-bitten dawn,
This is not that dawn of which there was expectation
Track Name: Avaaz
Dhoondtaa hai khayaal...
Ek saaz ko, aawaaz ko, rangeen ho, sangeen ho
Ek harf ko, ek lafz ko, kahde jo dil ka haal
Dhoondtaa hai khayaal

Rough translation:

My thoughts search...
For a melody, a voice
That is light and colorful or dark and heavy
For a sound, a word
That could express that which is in my heart
Track Name: Meri Bhavana
English Translation:
With pride may I never be elated, angry may I feel with none;
The sight of another’s luck may not make me envious with his lot;
May my desire be ever for dealings fair and straight, and may my heart only delight in doing good to others to the best of my abilities all the days of my life.

May I always entertain a feeling of friendliness for all living beings in the world;
May the spring of sympathy in my heart be ever bubbling for those in agony and affliction;
May I never feel angry with the vile, the vicious and the wrongly-directed;
My there be such and adjustment of things that I may always remain tranquil in dealing with them.
