I heard a drunk man outside Not treating his woman right In his voice there was sorrow In her face Fear for tomorrow So i called upon his darkened soul His heart had already gone too cold He forgot about the only truth of the universe that implies Joy brings Joy Violence brings Violence As you can see All men are falling As you can hear Women are crying What has become Of our species seems to me we have Lost touch with humanity Sanity, respecting and loving And teaching to be free Come closer darling I mean you no harm I know they touched you Karma knows it too now We all have seen them We all know the truth Joy brings Joy Violence brings Violence I heard a wild man outside His mind has fallen behind time He was stuck in ancient times He forgot about human rights So I called upon his darkened soul His heart had already gone too cold He forgot about the only truth of the universe that implies Joy brings Joy Violence brings Violence As you can see All men are falling As you can hear Women are crying What has become Of our species seems to me we have Lost touch with humanity Sanity, respecting and loving And teaching to be free Come closer darling I mean you no harm I know they touched you Karma knows it too now We all have seen them We all know the truth They cant run away We all have seen them We all know the truth They can’t run away because Joy brings Joy Violence brings Violence

Before you close your eyes Let me tell you something Before they crush my dreams Let me hold you some more Let me sing life to you Clouds taking over our land Metal birds are all flying around We dance blood to their harmonies Lovers gone lost never to be found Lovers gone lost never to be found Hundred pieces of you Running through the air Hundred pieces of you That I can not, I can not put together Before you close your eyes Let me tell you something Before they crush my dreams Let me hold you some more Let me sing life to you Oh their bullets are bigger than our hearts But our love is stronger than their guns We dance blood to their harmonies They play us the death song They play us the death song Hundred pieces of you Running through the air Hundred pieces of you That I cannot, cannot out together

از معناى حضورت، در جمع مستان چه حاصل كردى تو، چه حاصل كردى تو فقط به خاطر تو ، به خاطر خشم تو به خاطر كوچكى ات چند عاشق دادى به باد فقط به خاطر تو ، به خاطر مال تو براى مرگ عشق چند باغ ويران كردى تو تو بگو به من اى فتنه ويرانگر از مرگ دنيا تو را چه حاصل بر سفره ما جز مرگ، بر سفره ما جز ترس بر سفره ما جز اسيد چه اوردى اى فتنه ويرانگر تو را من ميبينم در اعماق آتش در همين دنيا هزاران بار ميسوزى و تمام صورت ها، تمام بدن ها تمام زنان و كودكان تو را نفرين ميكنند تو بگو به من اى فتنه ويرانگر از مرگ دنيا تو را چه حاصل؟

Melodies in our hearts Distractions in our minds Play your song And we'll dance all the way And if you get lost It’s because you assumed All dreams you’ve had are impossible thoughts and if you get hurt or hurt another soul open your heart and let go of your fears and if you far from your truth look within love is the only way and somethings are meant to stay and somethings will go away realms of unknown oceans of love rivers of life you are nothing but a god mountains of hope oceans of love rivers of live you are nothing but a god And when you hold the world in your hands You see that we are the same kind And if you get close to your enemies Hold their hands and walk them along And if you get hurt Or hurt another soul Open your mind It’ll take you far away And if you thought your dreams won’t come true Never doubting is the only way Somethings are meant to stay And some things will go way Realms of unknown Oceans of love Rivers of life You are nothing but a god Mountains of hope Oceans of love Rivers of life You are nothing but a god

about

Time Is Fire is a music group from Washington DC. The band indirectly originates from the DC punk scene by influence and residence but explodes the signature sound of the nation's capital with a high-energy mix of Afro-disco, Mid Eastern-psychedelia and spaced-out dub. Produced and recorded by Fugazi/Rites of Spring drummer Brendan Canty, Time is Fire's debut and self-titled EP transcends mainstream influences and incorporates strong global and experimental-fusion elements into their often psychedelic and funk-inflected music. A static blast of experimental radio from an imaginary country.

Time is Fire came together in late 2014 through a series of chance encounters crossing music scenes, generations and continents. Iranian daf player and Sufi poet, Kamyar Arsani, attended a loft party where drummer Jim Thomson (CSC Funk Band, Bio Ritmo, GWAR, Alter Natives) and guitarist Matt Perrone (Alma Tropicalia) were debuting several instrumental tunes that mixed pancultural rhythms with post-punk aggression. Arsani, who grew up in Tehran listening to western rock and Persian music, instantly connected with the sound. A one-off jam session was scheduled with bassist Ashish Vyas (Thievery Corporation, GoGoGo Airheart) who had been talking with Thomson about their shared love of bands like Public Image Ltd and The Pop Group. Initially, the band seemed destined to continue as an instrumental project. But in a moment of kraut rock improvisation, Arsani grabbed a microphone and began singing over the band's raucous funk groove. Within minutes the four piece had written its first song and Time is Fire was born.
