Abstract Tragedy Others


Hope (common man)

Hope (common man)

3 mins 207 3 mins 207

Umm... hmm.. um.. hmm.. um.. hmm...

Umm... hmm.. um.. hmm.. um.. hmm...


Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man

Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man


I got to pay EMI's

Had to keep an eye

On my child's future plans

Plus insurance in advance

To keep my nest safe from the thunderstorm

9 to 5 for my fam

Never painful, it makes sense

Even if it's not it will make someday


Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man

Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man


And now I'm doing ballerina

But strings are not in my hands

They decide what's for us from ac vents

Cash flows in-out exit the budget big figures over my head

Income tax records, most reliable records

Everything else forged details

Now, I'm walking errands

So I could reach my homeplace

Shutdown stuff, no daily wage, not homesickness

I saw my friends eatin' on a paper plate

Few went to hospitals from the mid-day

Take our respects, take our dignity

From both of your hands

Wrote below the line

Poverty on my house

To give us the benefits

Or take selfies when you donate

Coz at the end of the day

We are common to man 

And nobody cares about our existence


Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man

Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man


O writer why you write about us

When nobody has time for us

What's the agenda, what your prospectus

Your motives are dubious

You really wanna lead us

Or you wanna satisfy your egos

Like some social justice warriors

With some typos and keywords

Like what's in for the day, your actions, your opinions

Don't make us believe in the justice

When the system is a jungle

When every other person loves to bungle

Tell us, what's the reason, oh I'm doin' for loved ones

What goes around comes back around, we're in a full circle.

You really doin' for the hood or you care about dollars

We all are equal, well that's some common sense,

We collectively called as a human race

But we still need ads

To display we atta it boy through our managements

But if issues were solved, who's gonna vote for us

Discrimination lies deep within DNA's

Who is filling hatred in our heads?

There go headlines, few days on front pages

And then it disappeared, justice delayed

Oh, snap! There go another amendment in the constitution

Glorify your works, boast you the best

Down right-left, do I need to react?

When words and actions are opposites

I'm not for selectivism, err.. unsupported

(short-circuits, robotic voice cracking )


Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man

Don't sell me your hopes

I might not understand

Got two loaves of bread

To eat, I'm a common man.
