lyrics

She is the Keeper of My Soul
by A. A. Khan

(Dm-Am-F)
when you put me down
without a sound
how will the world ever know?

when my judgement day
seems like its gone astray
who'll be the keeper of my soul? x3

My babies
My babies
My baby's Love x2

(G-B-F)
When the borders will be drowned
by the unforgiving sound
of the people tied and bound
how will the world ever know?

When you call me out
without a shout
how will the world ever know?

when the corpses rot
in abandoned parking lots
who'll be the keeper of their souls? x3

When the forgers sign our names
and whats left is who to blame
from my wrath they'll ring the shame
who will remember my name?

My babies
My Babies
My baby's love

She is the Keeper of my soul
My baby is Love!

King Khan’s Commissioned Work »Rat-Tribution Now« is based on a tale told to him by his North Indian father and was dedicated to the American painter Joe Coleman. King Khan, (born Arish Ahmad Khan) dedicated his story »to the only rat eater I have ever loved,« referring to Coleman’s infamous spoken word performance in the 1988 movie »Mondo New York« which involved live rats. Together Coleman and Khan performed the piece in New York City on Halloween 2019, when King Khan was canonised by Coleman and made into one of his art pieces. Parts of this stunning portrait will be animated in »Rat-Tribution Now.« King Khan recruited his daughter Saba-Lou, also an established visual artist and songstress, to help tell the tale. The musical part involves King Khan revisiting his Indian heritage in the form of a »Rat-Eaters Raga,« a contribution from American punk rock legends Dead Moon, and a hypnotic narration by the »Infamous Rat Eater« Joe Coleman himself. Both ambitious in scale and captivating, as every lysergic film experiment should be, »Rat-Tribution Now« deals with the nefarious origins of the goddess Kali, exposing the poverty stricken community of the Musahar (»Rat Eaters«) people of Northern India and supernatural feminist empowerment. It is dedicated to the memory of the thousands of Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women and Girls of Canada.
