Heroes 02:32
Lyrics in Shona roughly translate to: There are rebels out here. There are those from the elephant totem. Rap lyrics in English: Leaders, believe, you know when we’re together we get em. There are rebels and mighty people who lead, Every day in every struggle in the world that give me cause to believe. Every activist that be activating out in the streets, Advocating for human dignity, disturbing the peace, That comes with ignorance, division and greed And distraction and fear, algorithms overwhelming the feed. Meanwhile, environmentalists make it easier to breathe, And doctors on the front line give us the treatments we need. The unsung, the mighty teachers that’s uplifting the youth. Artists looking into the face of power, speaking the truth. Lawyers representing the struggle pro bono in court, Showing up for all the working folks who cannot afford To buy justice. Beloved siblings, you are never alone. Everyday heroes are amongst out here carrying loads. Rebels and mighty people, leaders, believers, Who know when we’re together there’s nothing that can defeat us With rebels and mighty people, leaders, believers Who know when we’re together, nothing can defeat us. We got this.

Lyrics in Tamil and English: Unmaiya theriyaamal, Sandipaya (Without knowing the truth, would you suspect me?) Vedhanai theriyaamal, Sahipaaya (Without really knowing pain, would you know how to bear it?) I’ve walked in circles, twists and turns A path furthest from home, but where is home?

Say It 02:33
Lyrics in Urdu: Siyah fahm jaan ehem hai, bolo. (Black life matters, say it.)
4.
Lyrics in English: Just went out to buy blinds you shot me for nothing. Now everybody’s outside ready to bleed for your skin. No need for murder movies at night the streets are burning. Wherever you are hiding our voice will find where you’ve been. I’ll make it up, I’ll make it up... I’ll make it up, make it up to you…

Hai Apna Dil 02:23
Lyrics in Hindi: Hai apna dil to aawara Na jaane kise pe aayegaa (My heart is a vagabond. It will go to someone unknowingly) Haseena ne bulaya Gale se bhee lagaya Bahot samazaaya, Yahee na samaza (Beauties called me, they even embraced me They tried hard to explain, but my heart did not understand)
9.
Lyrics in Hindi: Ja Ja Re, Apne Mandirwa (Go away, go back to your home) Sun pave gi saas nanadiya (My mother-in-law and sister-in-law will hear you) Suno ho Sadarang tum ko chahat hai (For while I do love you) Kya tum hamko chalana kiyaa (How could you trick me)
