Oh let the sun beat down upon my face
 
 
Stars to fill my dreams
 
 
I am a traveler of both time and space
 
 
To be where I have been
 
 
Secret elders of the gentle race
 
 
This world is seldom seen
 
 
They talk of days for which they sit and wait
 
 
All will be revealed
 
 
Talk and song from tongues of lilting grace
 
 
Whose sounds caress my ear
 
 
But not a word I heard could I relate
 
 
The story was quite clear
 
 
Woah, woah
 
 
Ooh, oh baby I been flying
 
 
Lord yeah mama, there ain't no denyin'
 
 
Oh, ooh yes, I've been flying
 
 
Mama ma, ain't no denyin', no denyin'
 
 
 
Oh all I see turns to brown as the sun burns the ground
 
 
And my eyes fill with sand as I scan this wasted land
 
 
Trying to find, trying to find where I been
 
 
 
Oh, pilot of the storm who leaves no trace
 
 
Like thoughts inside a dream
 
 
Heed the path that led me to that place
 
 
Yellow desert screen
 
 
 
My Shangri-La beneath the summer moon
 
 
I will return again
 
 
Sure as the dust that floats high in June
 
 
When movin' through Kashmir
 
 
 
Oh, father of the four winds
 
 
Fill my sails, across the sea of years
 
 
With no provision but an open face
 
 
'Long the straits of fear
 
 
Woah, woah, woah

For those without comedic tastes, the so-called experts at Wikipedia have an article about Kashmir.

Kashmir (formerly Shangri-La), a "disputed"[1] region on the border between Pakistan, Wales and India, was best known as an exporter of Kashmir wool sweaters and in-bred children. The region was renamed after the famous song by Led Zeppelin in 1980, shortly after the death of drummer John Bonham. Although this was controversial in the rest of the world, the name change was highly popular among its residents, with one resident exclaiming, "our territory may be disputed, but our love of this song is undisputed!"

Demographics

A Richter 1.6 earthquake wiped out the region on the morning of October 8, 2005, with about forty thousand believed dead and more dying as food and shelter are scarce and narrow roads into the region are blocked by landslides. Authorities have been trying to pull out as many sheep as they can, alive, to save their wool making capabilities. They don't give a damn about the humans. In fact it would be better if all the humans were wiped out, it would leave more place for sheep to breed. Donate your aid at Save The Kashmir rats and Goats.com

Economy

The economy of Kashmir is based around agriculture, mainly rice. It's temperate climate and location at the source of the Indus river makes it quite tolerant of many crops. This property makes the land more desirable to India & Pakistan than finally knowing who Carly Simon was talking about in "You're So Vain".

The primary economic competitor to Kashmir was Afghanistan, which ekes out most of its meager existence by knitting Afghan dogs and biscuits in New Zealand.

The primary food export from the Kashmir region was Shake & Bake; as food becomes scarce, the Kashmiri pass the time playing Quake and clawing at the rubble with bare hands in an attempt to find buried friends and relatives.

Kashmir is also known for its no-fault insurance, which is of little use in an earthquake. File:Led Zeppelin Band.jpeg

Before the aforementioned name change,the national anthem of Kashmir was "Baa baa black sheep have you any wool? Yes sir, yes sir, three bags full." by John Paul Jones and Rudyard Kipling. After the region became known as "Kashmir", it made the unusual decision to use "California Dreaming", by The Mamas and the Papas. Responding to inquiries why it did not use "Shangri-La" by The Kinks or its namesake as a song, the region's spokesperson responded, "that's exactly what they'd be expecting us to do!" It is unclear who the "they" he refers to is.

Foreign aid

Aid efforts, like the earthquake itself, are proving to be a major disaster. Not only is help not reaching the remote rural villages where it's most desperately needed, but authorities don't seem to understand the problem. America sent Condoleeza Rice to the stricken area, only to have her sent back with the protest "No, no, no, you don't understand. We said peasants are starving because they have no rice. Send food!"

Recently, donations to Kashmir have been on the rise. According to most sources, this likely coincides with the release of Greg Mortenson and David Oliver Relin's book Three Cups of Tea, which mentions that Kashmir is, in fact, a real region in the world. In fact, Dr. Lionel Irving, a professor of Sociology at Nottingham University, cites "a recent study that found that 40% of Americans knew of a place named 'Kashmir'. Before the book was released, only about 20% had heard of a place called Kashmir, and 80% of the people who did thought Kashmir was some sort of Led Zeppelin fan club."
