A Patriotic Tamil Song

Our eyebrows are lowered, our eyes closed, lips parched, teeth clenched
We walk with our back bent.

We whom you rule over, lock us up in cages, flay us with staves.
Let the skin of our backs fester!

One day our eyebrows will arch. Our closed eyes will open again.
Our puckered lips will throb and our clenched teeth grind.
Rule over us until then. Flaunt your power over us.

It is taken from the movie 'Kannathil Muthamittal' directed by Maniratnam having the background of plight of tamil people in Srilanka.
