"Broken Skin" as written by and Nitin Sawhney....
Today at 15.45 hours
India conducted 3 underground nuclear tests
In the bogram range

Hope falls softly from your hands
Dreams burn deap beneath the land
Time casts shadows overall
Sweating fever, rain or river
Brushing winds beneath your call

Broken skin, distant fear
Shattered worlds of endless tears
Hidden fires, distant lies
Burried hopes beneath the cries
Broken skin, distant fears
Silent lips, so far, so near

Silence, it is every hope apart
Two flames burn deep beneath one heart
Teardrops flow faster with the tide
Raging over calmer waters
As the timeless land divides

Broken skin, distant fear
Shattered worlds of endless tears
Hidden fires, distant lies
Burried hopes beneath the cries
Broken skin, distant fears
Silent lips, so far, so near

Broken, distant, shattered
Hidden, distant, burried
Broken, distant, silent

Cold games repeat on eastern shores
Strong winds blow over colder wars
Proud lips stay silent in the rain
There are half a million voices in the song without a name

Broken, distant, shattered
Hidden, distant, burried
Broken, distant, silent

Shattered
Hidden, distant, burried
Broken, distant, silent

(so far so close)
Shattered
(there are half a million voices)
Distant
Shattered
Distant
Shattered
(there are half a million voices)

Just 5 miles from indias nuclear test site
Children play in the shade of the village water tank
Here in the rajahstan desert people say they're proud their country showed their nuclear capability
