about

This is "Christian Rock from Japan"!. This is our Love Offering. Kick-ass 80s heavy metal sound with faith!
Tak and IMARi ToNES always focused on Love, not on success or fame. It is not what we can get, but what we can give. We always did our recordings independently, and we wanted do that once more, with our Faith for God. After we came back from our first tour in the United States, Tak heard God's voice and he thought now he could make a real Christian rock album. Tak has done his best songwriting ever in this album. Unlimitted guitar riffs, so many rhythm changes, and soaring high melodies. It was only possible with the power of Holy Spirit. The result is quite a unique rock sound, influenced by Rush, Van Halen, Stryper combined. It may still not perfect, but this is our Love and this is our Devotion. Now "Faith Rider" is our most powerful metal song, and "Love Is To Do Something No One Dares To Do" is now our best ballad song. All songs are sung in English. This is 3rd Imari Tones's album made for international market.

Track Name: Testimony
The world is full of miracles
Let me talk about my case
When I first time heard His voice
It was something not so pleasant

I didn't even know his name
And I didn't care
I used to think John Lennon was just a famous guy
But now he's the closest friend of mine
The same thing happened to me and God
What a miracle


The world is full of troubles
Let me talk about my case
I always wanted to change this world
Now I know who to ask

I finally learned His name
And His name was Love
I used to hear His voice in the sound of Rock
But now He's the closest friend of mine
The same thing can happen to you
What a miracle
(gs)

You hear a word - the word is God
You see an image - the image is God
You have a thought - the thought is God
It's something you can't touch, but He's always there
Track Name: Precious
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
Track Name: A Girl In The Mirror
Let me tell you about a girl in the mirror
She's living in another world behind the mirror

I fell in love with her when I saw her in my bathroom mirror
We could hear each other but couldn't touch

And she grew up as I grew up
Somehow we're living a similar life

Spark, spark
Oh, oh, we're so magnetic
The mirror rejects me when I try to touch her
Reach out,
What a strange relationship
We know each other so well
But can't even touch

Feels like I am living one more life
I guess she's my counterpart in the parallel world


Let me tell you about the magic moment
One day I went through my bathroom mirror

She was sick and crying in her room
I wanted to kiss her but that's not what I did

The only thing I could do
Was to tell her boyfriend that she needs him now

Spark, spark
Oh, oh, we're so electric
She gives me energy when we smile at each other
Reach out,
She's a girl living in another world
We're leading the same life on both sides of the mirror

Feels like we're walking on 2 parallel roads
Which never cross each other but always so close


When our roads meet at the end
I'll show you what I found in my life
So show me yours, I can't wait
'Cause we are twins who share one soul
Track Name: Oriental Worship
Oh Lord, Father in heaven
I will bow down to you
I will kneel down to you

Oh wow, such an incredible blessing
I can only thank you
I can only thank you

All the things you gave me yesterday
All the things you will give me tomorrow
More than anything I thank you for this miraculous moment

You gave me freedom
You gave me this day
For a little man like me
You gave me light, you gave me joy
You gave me all the hope
By the blood of Jesus Christ


Oh Lord, such a huge blessing
You promised me
You promised me

Oh wow, what a peace of mind
I'm overwhelmed
I'm overwhelmed

Those things I really want
Those things I really need
More than anything I thank you because you know them all

You gave me mercy
You gave me this life
For a trifle being like me
You gave me love, you gave me dreams
You gave me all the happiness
In the name of Jesus Christ
Track Name: One On One
It's not a big cathedral
It's not on Channel Two
It's not ten thousand audience

In a dark basement
In a lonely attic
On a top of mountain

*
He wants to talk to you
He wants you to call His name
It's one on one, face to face
He wants to love you
He wants you to look for Him
It's one on one
He is always there for you


It's not a great preacher
It's not a great statesman
It's not a great big star

With your own friends
With your team mates
With your brothers and sisters

He wants to talk to you
He wants you to call His name
It's one on one, face to face
He wants to love you
He wants you to look for Him
It's one on one
He is always there for you

Let's party hard
It's a miracle we're here together
Then when the party is over
Let's spend time with someone you love
(gs)


Now everybody asleep
But I can still talk to Him
'Cause He's always there
Even when I'm sleeping

He has everything
He is infinite
So I ask Him my new guitar
He's a so perfect Santa Claus

*repeat

For each of us
'Cause we're all His children
Track Name: I Want A Revival
I want a revival
I want a revival
I want a revival here in Japan

The revival I want
It will happen everywhere
It will change people's heart
It will change this world
I don't need a big church, I don't need a big flag
I just want all to know
One big love


I want a revival
I want a revival
I want a revival in everyone's heart

The revival I want
It will happen right now
It will show us who we are
It will change the way we live
I don't want a guarantee, I don't know about an afterlife
I just want heaven to be
Here and now

God I pray
May your will be done
God I pray
May your kingdom come
God I pray
Love to everyone
Track Name: God Kids
I call myself a Christian 'cause I got a gut to fight with God
Even Jacob fought with God, that's how he won the love of God
I guess we're just little kids who want Father's attention
I won't walk away from you, because You Yourself have taught me

I don't care what teachers or pastors say

I just
Wanna be loved x3
I ain't hearing nobody but Him
Jesus, 'cause He loves me!


I call myself a Christian 'cause I talk with God everyday
How can you really understand even before you throw a question?
I don't wanna be a robot because you can't love a robot
Help me understand your orders, then I will sing about your miracles

I don't care how big or famous your church is

I just
Wanna be loved x3
I ain't seeing nobody but Him
Jesus, 'cause He loves me!


Try not to listen to the human rules
You like to classify everything like music sub genre
Jesus didn't classify us, He just loved everybody
How dare you say God is alive, you hypocrites

The gospel is not only for you
It's for everybody
The gospel is not only for you
It's for everybody (even for me)

I don't care what teachers or pastors say

I just
Wanna be loved x3
Break every rule and seek for Jesus way
Jesus way, embrace Jesus!
Track Name: The Wandering Savior
When I started playing music
It was almost like a suicide
But God told me something
Just Be Beautiful

I knew I would always be lonely
I knew I would always be away from success in this world

That's why I call myself a wandering savior
The biggest joke in my life
That's why I call myself a wandering savior
I'm destined to wander till I die


Then I started my long journey
It took me everywhere
And God told me something
It's time to see My Son

I thought I would always be lonely
But now at least I have one friend
(So great a friend)

That's why I call myself a wandering savior
The most pathetic being in the world
That's why I call myself a wandering savior
The one who needs God's help most
(gs)


I came here just to have fun
I came here just to have fun
I'm not supposed to save any of you

That's why I call myself a wandering savior
I'm destined to wander till I die


No, I'm not gonna save the world
You save the world
No, I'm not gonna save the world
You save the world
No, I'm not gonna save the world
You save the world
'Cause it's your world
Track Name: Simple
Many people have told me
Why don't you live your life more simply?
They don't understand how difficult it is
To be really simple

Just like blue jeans
Like AC/DC, like an apple pie
Great things can't be done, not so easily
When your life is so messed up
So many wounds to heal

Yes, I'm doing all the complicated things
Just to be simple, just to be simple
Running from coast to coast, taking years and years
Just to say these 3 words
"Thank You God"


Many people have adviced me
Why don't you become more simple
They don't understand how long it takes
To be really simple

Just like a red rose
Like a rolling stone, like a glass of water
Nothing is so easy, as it seems
When your mind is so blind
So many bills to pay

Yes, I have run all the wrong ways
Just to be simple, just to be simple
Working from 9 to 6, crying all night
Just to say these 3 words
"I Love You"
Track Name: A Bow and an Arrow
Dear father, you're not broken
You were just too smart to live in this world
Like a highly advanced machine, you need a good care
And now I can see how faithful your life was

It's not a coincidence I was born as your child
I was given my life for what you believe and what you love

Just like a bow and an arrow
We repel each other
I'm flying straight in the air


Dear mother, you're not crazy
You just had too much love for what people can't see
I thought it's impossible for me to change you
That's why I ran away instead of fighting you

It's not a coincidence I was born as your child
I was given my life for what you seek and what you crave

Just like a bow and an arrow
I'm made of your prayer
I'm still flying straight in the air


I have changed my name
Just like I told you when I was 14
Hope there is a way to show you all I have seen
Anything you regret, anything you gave up
I just want you to know my life was not so bad

Just like a bow and an arrow
I am your prayer
I'm flying straight in the air


No one can really forgive you
No one but God
But even so
Let me forgive you

No one can really forgive you
No one but God
But even so
I still love you
I still love you
Track Name: Love Is To Do Something No One Dares To Do
No matter how much love you got
If it can't save the poorest people
There's no meaning
There's no meaning

No matter how gentle the word is
If it can't reach the loneliest people
There's no meaning
There's no meaning

Just think what He really wants

Love is to do something no one dares to do
Like giving up a piece of pie
Like saying sorry to your friend
Love is to do something no one dares to do
Like bearing the cross
Yeah, like bearing all the sins on this planet


No matter how right the teaching is
No matter how good the act is
If it's forced and not spontaneous
If it's not from your heart
There's no meaning
There's no meaning

You just got to be beautiful

Love is to do something no one dares to do
Like fighting for someone you love
Like praying for your enemy
Love is to do something no one dares to do
Like bearing the cross
Yeah, like bearing all the sins on this planet
(gs)

Just try to be yourself
Just to please the Lord
Just offer the best you got
Just to praise the Lord
Track Name: Forget
Let yourself forget everything
Let yourself forget everything
Those things you learned at school
Those things you learned at work
Those things somebody told you

Everything you don't like
Everything you don't need
Let them all fade away

Then you will see what you really need
Then you will see what your soul really wants to see


Let yourself forget everything
Let yourself forget everything
Those things you learned at church
Those things you learned in this world
Those things somebody told you

Forget all the whites
Forget all the blacks
Let them all fade away

Then you will see what you really want
Then you will see what you really have to remember
Track Name: Faith Rider
Ride for Jesus
My iron horse
I am running for my mission

The sound of steel
That's what God gave to me
I will fight for Him till I die

It's not my tatoo
It's not my knuckles
My only weapon
The faith for God

Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
Yes I live for Him
Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
He's on my side
I will die for Him


Sing for Jesus
My flying arrow
I'm a soldier under His command

He gives me strength
He changed me
With Him, I'll never be the same


I fear not your knives
I fear not your missiles
I fear not thunder and lightning
I only fear God


Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
Yes I trust in Him
Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
He's on my side
Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
He has a plan for all of us
Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
He's my rock and my deffence
I shall never be moved


Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
Yes I live for Him
Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
He's on my side
Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
He has a plan for all of us
Faith (Faith) Faith Rider
He's my rock and my deffence
I'm His servant till I die
