about

Imari Tones has been always "musically diverse" type of hard rock / heavy metal band. Even though they throw straightforward heavy metal punches here and there, they have always been referred to more diverse type of hard rock bands such as Rush, Led Zeppelin, Living Colour and even more alternative stuff. In this album titled "Revive The World", this musical diversity and depth are expressed in their best forms. Just like any other album from Imari Tones, the driving force behind it is spiritual joy and excitement. This spiritual elevation is a result from their touring experience both in Japan and USA, playing numerous venues including street festivals, camping sites, schools, churches and skateparks. (No wonder this album contains some skateboarding songs.) The spiritual elevation achieved here is certainly a landmark in their mostly-independent music career and the band is very happy with that. "This is probably our Physical Graffiti.", Tak, the guitarist/singer says. "If Van Halen, this is probably our Fair Warning, with the musical diversity and depth. Or OU812, if you are more of a Van Hagar guy (laugh)". Tak also talks about the story behind the album title and artwork. "The world is changing rapidly recently. Especially in Japan, after the 2011 Tsunami and nuclear power plant disaster, things are really uncertain. The future is unknown and we are all hurting. This world needs a healing. A spiritual healing. We need more Love, not Hate. So this is our spiritual healing in the music form." Also Tak doesn't forget to mention the band's most important message. "We wanted to prove we can do it all in a form of Christian Rock. I think Christian rock scene is very much saturated for a long time now. So, as a band from Japan where Christianity is still rare and perceived differently, we wanted to throw something fresh. I'm sure people will smile when they hear our almost-ridiculous straightforward message screaming "I ride for JESUS!".

Track Name: Unlimit
One step out of my room
Way far out of my comfort zone
Just another step to turn the whole world
Into my comfort zone
I tell myself,
Everything happens in my head
On my small inner screen

Unlimit your prayer
Unlimit your soul
Unlimit your destiny
Don't limit the world
Because God formed the world with His words
We form it with our prayers
It's that simple, my friend

This world scares me
I can feel my pain inside
That's when I realize
Nothing can really hurt me
Because we are all in Him
We call them enemies, He calls them children

Unlimit your prayer
Unlimit yourself
Unlimit your wildest dreams
Don't limit your God
Because God formed the world with His words
We form it with our prayers
It's that simple, my friends

One step out of my room
You don't really have to be afraid
Everything happens here
will be written In His heavenly book

Unlimit your prayer
Unlimit your soul
Unlimit your destiny
Don't limit the world
Unlimit your prayer
Unlimit yourself
Unlimit your wildest dreams
Don't limit your God
Track Name: The Imaginary Number Boy 3
If there is a place called Hell
It should look like this
I don't quite remember when I was alive last time
Everyday looks quite the same here

He came in secret
Just to rescue me
He was 00.....777
He was The Imaginary Number Boy

He was counting in imaginary numbers
Making miracles out of ashes
I saw unicorns fly, dinosaurs run
He even offered me 5,000 Sushi

He came in secret
Just to rescue me
He was dressed in 9.3 (Mark 9:3)
He was the Imaginary Number Boy

He said
Things you can see they are not so real
Things you cannot see they are a little bit more real
But if you're talking about a real thing
Just feel me inside, I'm always there
(solo)

I saw that
He was made of the imaginary numbers
Making everything out of nothing
He even offered me 7,000 Sashimi
and I ate them all

He came in secret
Just to rescue me
His cell phone number was 333 (Jeremiah 33:3)
He was the Imaginary Number Boy
Track Name: Victory
How do I know when I have victory
How do I know if I really won
Winning a game
Receiving a big prize
No, I'm talking about something more

Angels dancing
Fanfare in heaven
All the universe is watching you on God's TV
You were born with glory
You were born to be a star
Because we are all children of God

Oh yeah
When it happens you can feel it right there
Something warm in your heart

How do I know when I've done something right
How do I know I did a right thing
Acclaim from people
Making a big money
No no, I'm talking about something more

Angels chanting
Confetti of stars
No.1 hit on heaven's chart
We were born to be friends
We were born with hope
Because we are all children of Love

Oh yeah
When it happens you can feel it right there
Something warm in your heart
You've got friends and we did it together
Now heaven is cheering for you

You never know how much you are loved
Loved by heaven, angels, God and universe
You've achieved something, it's the news of the world
Each day will be our anniversary
(guitar solo)

Oh yeah
When it happens you can feel it right there
Something warm in your heart
You've got victory and we did it together
Now we are all cheering for you
Track Name: Unknown Road
Today the world was saved again
Our relationship renewed
Our promises kept
Once again
This world survived a day even though it doesn't deserve it

Because of His mercy
Because of His love
And because you stepped out of the door and started a new life

Oh Yes
Now we are walking on the unknown road
Oh unknown road

Today the world was saved again
But no one knows it
No one knows the price paid
This world survived a day in spite of our deceit

Because of His mercy
Because of His forgiveness
And because you believed in someone and started a new day

Oh yes
Now we're driving on the unknown road

There is never a thing like just another day
There is never a moment given at no cost
Who is the hero
Who is the victim
It might be your little act of love that saved the rest of us
Track Name: Falling
I don't quite remember where it began
I don't even remember where we were born
Long lost in the history
We were the little devils

I'm not really sure why we came here
Concrete, steel and neon lights
We didn't care about God or Satan
We just wanted to play

We tried to ascend up to heaven
But in His universe there was no up or down
We thought we were rising
but in fact we were falling

But it was so awesome
we forgot why, why we started this
Let go, let go, we are falling
We are falling into the hands of God

I'm not quite sure what i'm made of
But I'm pretty sure I was born with sin
Long forgotten in the history
I was a little devil

It didn't really have a serious meaning
It was just a joke on a whim
I didn't know what it would eventually cause
Trust me I just wanted to make her happy

We tried to ascend up to heaven
But in His universe there was no up or down
We thought we were rising
but in fact we were falling

But it was so awesome
we forgot why, why we started this
Let go, let go, we are falling
We are falling into the hands of God

Yes it was so awesome
This is what I wanted, this is what I needed
Is this what God has given to me for my nasty deeds
I've been waiting for this more than forever

But it was so awesome
we forgot why, why we started this
Let go, let go, we are falling
We are falling into the hands of God

I'm still not sure why we came here
Silicone, plastic, and glass fibers
Is this some kind of weird B movie
Or are we on an eternal vacation
Track Name: Steel Wheels
I got problems
Problems with fear
I don't know why
But I can't get away
I'm a man who walks towards the danger
I can't take a step ahead till I get over myself

Walk it
Talk it
Throw it
Cut me with a knife
Leave it
Love it
Chew it
Till I crush them all under my Steel Wheels

I got obsessions
Obsessed with fear
I can never stop
Running all night long
I'm a man who gets it one way or another
I can't take care of you till I satisfy myself

Walk it
Talk it
Throw it
Stub me with a knife
Leave it
Love it
Gnaw it
Till I crush them all under my Steel Wheels

I got problems
Problems with fear
I don't know why
But I can't get away

I'm running on my steel wheels
I'm crushing them under my steel wheels
I'm driving on my steels wheels
I'm gonna crush you under my steels wheels
Track Name: Heaven's Gate
Do I have to be good
Or do I have to be bad
It doesn't matter at all
You just need a key
Do I have to be right
or do I have to be left
It doesn't matter at all
You just need a key

In the eyes of God
We are all the same
It's pretty cool
when you got what it takes
no matter who you are

When we come to the Heaven's Gate
All our virtues will become none
Prince of Peace
Lamb of God
The only truth
We will face

Do I have to be a capitalist
Or do I have to be a communist
It doesn't matter at all
You just need a key
Do I have to be a British
Or do I have to be a Japanese
It doesn't matter at all
You just need a key

In the eyes of God
It doesn't make no difference
It's pretty sweet
when you got what it takes
no matter who you are

When we come to the Heaven's Gate
All our evils will become none
Cleanse by blood
Cross to bear
The only truth
We will be asked

Do you think you are right
Maybe you're wrong
Do you think you are safe
Maybe you're wrong
Because no one is safe from the wrath of God
No one is safe from the wrath of God
Ask yourself and we are all guilty
We need our redeemer
We need a help from that guy
(guitar solo)

When you come to the Heaven's Gate
Can you open the door
Have you got the key
Do you know who has the key
It's not about right or wrong
It's not about good or bad
It's all about believe and trust

Is your door open
Is your heart open
Can you unlock the heaven's gate
When you accept HIM
He will accept YOU
Now are you ready for the moment
Your truth is RIGHT HERE
Track Name: Ripping Through Hell
Todoroki!
Looks exactly like hell
Devastated and abandoned
Long lost capital

Cracks on the ground
Every door is locked
Only the reckless enter this land

Hope is gone
Long long gone
But there is a light
Light that shines

Hey kids, get your wheels ready
Put your bearings on
Tighten your bolts and nuts

Now breathe deep
Say your prayer
You're ready to fight for what you believe in

Shin Yoko!
Looks exactly like a jail
Everything is clean
But there's really nothing to check

Surveillance cameras
Voices from speakers
Only the clever survive this land

Hope is gone
Long long gone
But there is a light
A new born light

Hey boy, get your deck ready
Put your griptape on
Wear your pads and caps

Now breathe deep
Say your prayer
You're ready to fight for your faith

Are you ready to fight!
This will be a tough battle!
But there's no need to be afraid
You can ride through hell if you have a faith!
Track Name: Invisible Rain
We didn't even know
We didn't even care
We were living on the sacrifice
There's no one else to blame
But if I had known the truth
I would have made a different choice

We can hide under the roof when it rains
But what can we do to this invisible rain
Some people just don't care
They say all the lies on TV
But in reality our town was forever lost
Forever lost

Once they told us it was absolutely safe
Now they say it's okay because it was just one small town
Nobody dares to speak of this invisible rain
Pouring down on our children

We can use an umbrella when it rains
But what can we do to this invisible rain
Some people just ignore
They say all the lies on TV
But the poison is still flowing in this very moment

The world goes around as if nothing has happened
Was nothing learned?
Was nothing gained?
Do you even know what has happened
This tragedy will repeat again
Yes it will happen again
Until we completely ruin this place
We're gonna ruin this place

Sun is shining
But it's raining
It's killing us
It's killing your children
Track Name: Hometown
We have come from a land of shining sun
In our hometown we can all fly
we always trust in soul and spirit
In our hometown we never dream
because we all know we are actually living a dream

We have come from a land of peaceful sea
In our hometown we can all surf
We all believe in one love and freedom
In our hometown we never worry about things
Because we don't really own anything in the first place

Everyday everynight
we challenge our limit
Believing tomorrow will be better than today
We believe in our destiny and God's guidance
Because He is so real
There is no need to doubt
No need to doubt
Night and day,
Day and night
Nothing is limited
Because LOVE is here

Love is so real
Life is so real
Eternity is so real
Everything is shining with His Love and Glory

We have come from a land of shining sun
In our hometown we can all fly
we always trust in soul and spirit
In our hometown we never dream
because we all know we are actually living a dream

Do you believe it
Can you believe it
Yes you will believe it when you come here
Track Name: Born To Ride
Born to ride My red deck
It's got no name but I know it's built tough
Rides so hard feels so good
When I flick it, the world spins for me

It's not really about how much skill you got
It's how you use it and who you use it for
Now don't underestimate my kickflip

It's everything in here
My heart starts beating fast
Saying I wanna go faster
I dedicate my ride to the one I'm truly in love with
I ride for Jesus

Born to burn My white wheels
When I'm in the air, the world belongs to me

It's not really about how talented you are
It's how you use it and who you use it for
You better be ready for my bigspin

It's everything in here
My blood starts running fast
Saying I wanna go higher
It's everything in here
My soul starts screaming loud
Saying I'm on fire
I dedicate my ride to the one I'm truly in love with
I ride for Jesus
(solo)

Sometimes things are so hard, it looks like you will never make it
No trick is as easy to get in just one day
Just keep on trying, taking each step in faith
One day you will be there, even before you know it

It's everything in here
My legs start pushing hard
Saying I wanna go harder
It's everything in here
My soul starts screaming loud
Saying I wanna go louder
I dedicate my ride to the one I'm truly in love with
I ride for Jesus
Track Name: 17years
17 years ago, I wrote a song
Song about believing, believing in love
It was the very next day God gave me love
It's amazing I still have it today
So amazing

It's great to believe in a dream in this cruel world
How wonderful will it be if we can believe it together
Yes we are living a dream
Just like I dreamed
Much more than I've ever dreamed

17 years ago, you were like a little girl
Now you are a lot more like a mom
It's amazing how people change through time
Just like God has planned
So amazing

It's great to have a journey in this wide world
How wonderful will it be if we can walk it together
Yes we are living a dream
Just like I dreamed
Much more than I've ever dreamed

(guitar solo)

It's great to believe in love in this tough world
How wonderful will it be if we can believe it together
Yes we are living a dream
Just like I dreamed
Much more than I've ever dreamed
