The Pakistani Sufi-Rock band Junoon have released their new English single "No More" which remembers the innocent victims of 9/11 and terrorism everywhere. Penned by Polar Livine of Polarity 1 and Salman Ahmad of Junoon the song can be heard/downloaded at the Junoon Website along with they lyrics. They might not be household names in the US but they are big in the subcontinent and elsewhere. They have appeared on US media many times including NPR took a deeper look in their role in presenting another face of Pakistan. Together Salman Ahmed, Brian'o'Connell, and Ali Azmat have relentlessly called for peace between India & Pakistan and raised enough controversy domestically to be banned by several "Democratic" governments in Pakistan.

umm, if u cant find it, i thought i would post the lyrics just in case.
In my lungs through my windows
on my head on the floor
ashes of falling hope
choking me inside these doors
stormy winds seduce the night
over newyork and karachi skies
sinking in a sea of time
mourning since 11/9

No more,I'm breathing you no more,I'm missing you no more,No more

God and money take the blame
for suicidal video games
if all that lives is born to die
love remains i wonder why

on black and white tv
red is all i see
I'm sick of spying eyes
wearing suits and secret ties

(Repeat) No More

the dream is not yet over
keep yourself alive
hold on
we may survive

(Repeat) No More

What a nice post. Thanks, adnanbwp; I'd never heard of them before. The song clips at the Junoon.com site are a pretty interesting mix of rock with what sounds like, er, "Indipop" to me.
