about

Imari Tones has been always a very productive group of musicians. We are probably one of the most (musically) productive indie bands in the world and we take a great pride in it.This disk, is an EP, which means it contains fewer songs than a full album. We planned to make this EP as a bridge to our next project. Our initial plan was just to record a couple of songs and some acoustic worship song in Japanese language (Ai No Iro). However, we also wanted to record a Japanese version of our worship song "Give Us Your Miracles", that turned into "Kiseki Wo Kudasai".And we recorded this funny Thrash Metal song for our friends at Famicom Dojo, which is "Famicom Thrash". And now we have this nice live version of "Precious" recorded at Misono Baptist Church, on March 16, 2013. Now it's almost like an "Extra EP" with so many special songs. "Overcome" is one of our most powerful rocking calling out Jesus name. "Heroes" is a patriotic song dedicated to all the unsung heroes in human history. And "Follow The Light" is a song dedicated to both Tak's father passed away in 2012 and Hassy's father passed away in 2013. Much more than we initially planned, this Heroes EP is a representation of our identity as a Japanese band, as much as it's our personal favorite emotionally and spiritually.

Track Name: Overcome
I know
So many ways to be successful
So many ways to be happy
But they
All eventually lead you to death
Only one I know who can win this battle

Jesus!
You're the only one who can let us overcome
Come here!
Come here and let us overcome
Jesus!
You're the Light and You're the Life
And You're the only truth
Come here!
Come here and let us face the truth

We have
So many choices in our lives
So many ways to entertain you
But in the end you have to face the darkness
There's only one way to win this battle

Jesus!
You're the only one who can let us overcome
Come here!
Come here and let us overcome
Jesus!
You're the Love and You're the Fire
And You're the only way
Come here!
Come here and let us live in eternity

Do you believe in eternity
Do you believe in eternal love
Do you believe in eternity
Do you really believe in love
Let me hear your heart beat

Jesus!
You're the only one who can let us overcome
Come here!
Come here and let us overcome
Jesus!
You're the light and You're the life
And You're the only way
Come here!
Come here and let us believe in eternity
Track Name: Heroes
Once upon a time
There was a man who went to hell by His choice
Because He knew only in death He could find the eternal life
Once upon a time
There was a man who threw away everything and bore His cross
Because He knew the only way to gain was to give

We're living in a world created by our nameless Heroes
So we should Love like they did
Yes we should give like they did
We're living in a world saved by our amazing God's grace
So we should forgive like He did
Pick Life not death

We have a history
A history never told
But we have it in our blood
What God has done to our nation
We have a history
Those heroes never told
But we don't look back on the past
We just follow our God of Love like they all did

We're living in a world created by our nameless Heroes
So we should Love like they did
Yes we should give like they did
We're living in a world saved by our amazing God's grace
So we should forgive like He did
Choose Love not wealth

Who is the enemy we are fighting against?
It's not anybody's son. Don't you ever forget
Anger, apathy, ignorance
Greed and intolerance
Let's keep on fighting them
We're almost there
Track Name: Follow The Light
Is it cold
Or is it warm there
I wonder if you enjoy the ride

A week has past
While I've been sleeping
I still feel like you are here smiling to me

Follow the Light
Hear the voice inside
Follow the Love
Remember the time we had
Can you hear my prayer
There we will meet again
Again

Are you having fun
Or working hard
I wonder how it goes on the other side of the world

How many years
Will we be separate
Though I'm still thinking of you everyday

Follow the Light
Hear the voice inside
Follow the Love
Remember the time we had
Can you hear my prayer
There we will meet again
Again

Follow the Light
Hear the voice from above
Follow the Love
Remember the words we've heard
Can you hear our prayer
There we will meet again
Again

In Love
In Love
In His Love
Track Name: Ai No Iro
神よ あなたの愛は
どんな 色だったでしょうか
神よ あなたの愛は
どんな 音だったでしょうか

春の日の雨のように
きらきらひかる きみどりいろ
夏の日の朝のように
かがやきみちる オレンジ色

わたしのけがれを わたしのよわさを
ぬぐいさってくれる あなたの血潮
ジーザス あなたはわたしの神

神よ あなたの愛を
いつから 知ったのでしょうか
神よ あなたの愛を
誰から 知ったのでしょうか

秋の日の風のように
ざわざわさわぐ やまぶき色
冬の日の空のように
しずまりかえる むらさき色

わたしのつみを わたしのいのちを
あがなってくれる あなたの十字架
ジーザス あなたはわたしの神
Track Name: Kiseki Wo Kudasai
主よ ここに集いし
わたしたち小さきもの
今日もうちひしがれて
あなたにすがっています

あなたの奇跡をください

今この時を神に捧ぐ
今この場所を神に捧ぐ
わたしはとても愚かだけど
あなたの愛だけ知っている
だから今日もわたしは祈るのです


主よ ここに集いし
イエスを求めるもの
あなたにあこがれて
学びたがっています

あなたの言葉をください

今この時を神に捧ぐ
今この場所を神に捧ぐ
わたしはとても貧しいけれど
あなたの愛だけ持っている
だからわたしたちは集うのです


そう今この国は
傷つき泣いているけれど
新しい何かが生まれるように
愛をここから始めよう

わたしには今わかる
この場所が天国であることが
神のみこころと御手によって
神の栄光をあらわすことが
Track Name: Famicom Thrash
It all started in 1983
All the Japanese boys fell in love
asked their parents to get one
One of these red and white fun machines

It was more popular than skateboards
It was more popular than baseball
It was harder than math class
It was our after-school life

Yes we were born to play all these video games
Let's say "clear" in our Famicom Dojo

Oh God
Thank you for these video games

We all went to the rich kids' house
To play the gorgeous disk-system
Sometimes it was Kuso-Ge
Now we know life is more like Takeshi's challenge

Mr.Takahashi was a hero
16 shots in a second
Everybody tried fast shooting
You should be quick or you'll be dead

Yes we were born to play all these retro games
Let's say "continue" in our Famicom Dojo

Oh God
Thank you for these video games

Play games 1 hour a day
That's what Mr.Takahashi said

Infinity Multiplication
One hundred Marios
Let's input the Konami code
Now I am invincible

Can you tell me the "Spell of Restoration"
Because I forgot to take a memo!
Fukkatsu No Jumon Ga Chigaimasu

Yes we were born to play all these video games
Let's say "clear" in our Famicom Dojo
Yes we were born to play all these retro games
Let's say "continue" in our Famicom Dojo

Oh God
Thank you for the video games

Yeah! Ah!
Bandai Namco!
Hudson Hudson!

Oh! Wow!
Now who can beat my Joy Card MK2?
Automatic turbo shooting
16 shots in a second!

Okay let's play some dig dug
We don't know Mega Man!
We call it Rock Man!
We don't know Mega Man!
We call him Rock Man!
Track Name: Precious (Live)
I hear people say we're totally useless and nobody cares about us

They're wrong (yes they're wrong)
They're wrong (so so wrong)
They're wrong (yes they're wrong)
They're wrong (so so wrong)

I know some people say we're a powerless little group and it's no use

They're wrong (yes they're wrong)
They're wrong (so so wrong)
They're wrong (yes they're wrong)
They're wrong (so so wrong)

Because the Lord saved us from the evil instead of them

He said
You're so precious in my eyes
No matter how big or how small you are
So keep doing what you're doing
Hold on to your love and Stay With Me
Yes, He told me so
That's the biggest joy in my life


You may keep asking yourself
I'm so useless and who cares about me?

You're wrong (yes, you're wrong)
You're wrong (so so wrong)
You're wrong (yes, you're wrong)
You're wrong (so so wrong)

Because the Lord has a plan just for you
Yes He does

He said,
You're so precious in my eyes
No matter how good or how bad you are
Just remember I'm on your side
Hold on to your faith and Stay With Me
Yes, He told me so
That's the greatest thing in my life


I know once in a while
The Lord performs a miracle or two
Just to show His love to you
Just to show that He loves you
