about

Zahir Montevarchi, Italy

Zahir knew their start in 2013, only getting to a complete formation in the summer of 2014.
'70's blues and rock are a major source of influence for the band, with a touch of prog, and often dwelving in more acoustic atmospheres.
'Portrait of Zahir as a Young Band" is the band's first EP and a snapshot of their music in its early days.

Track Name: Julia
You know that night gives goosebumps just to the cold
Ain't no emotions here, just want you to be bold

The risk you take in choosing negative answers
Reveals quite muggle and here's a wand that's saying yes.

I'm trying to save me
I'm trying to loath you girl, as bad as it can be

I'm begging the shit out of your mind
Since we have nothing left to hang on but our lives.

Attention paid
I can't talk with your shame.
Don't even need your smile,
Woman

But I know you know
Then let it the fuck go
Ain't no truer cry
Woman

The vexed questions here are: How much do you care?
How many guns did you load to cope with their warfare?

Object of study, your reactions make me chug
Please blow smoke to me and dust under the rug.

Attention paid
I can't talk with your shame.
Don't even need your smile,
Woman

But I know you know
Then let it the fuck go
There's no happier cry
Woman
Track Name: Foreigner Blues
I got sick
Of my language
Poet's word here might just taste like puke
I got fed up
With this luggage
Mostly carrying biased points of view
Oh mama
Will you take this leap with me
Let's forget our names
As they were never meant to be

But it's never easy
To let it go and go
No one can please me
But it doesn't mean that you shouldn't try
Oh baby, Oh baby
Please let me be the one I'd be without you

I got sick
Of the message,
Always to give but never to mean
Fed up with the vengeance
Cos it's never how I want it to be

But it's never easy
To let it go and go
No-one can please me
But it doesn't mean that you shoudn't try
Oh baby, Oh baby
I only just want you not to want me to pay back

[talkin' shit]

But it's never easy
To let it go and go
No-one can please me
But it doesn't mean that you shoudn't try
I'll do whatever it takes to be able to do whatever it takes
Track Name: Mindless Beauty
Mindless beauty, you change like weather
And give me shelter, most of the time.
My question is one and mere:
Has your delightful fleer
Ever come from good?

Merciless ruby, against the time
Next to Cantia wine, I would lose
My senses and my fears,
To pour red bitter tears
Into an endless glass.

Mindless beauty, so carefully hidden
In what's forbidden, just like lies
But we all just keep on dying,
'Till life passes us by
Then where's the truth?

Lawless duty, you draw the line
From my willful eye to her curious look.
I want to hear her scream
Just a little more than me
Then I feel home.
I want to hear her scream
Just a little louder than me
Thus I feel home.

Mindless beauty, keep clapping your hands
'Till I begin, to bleed me out.
'Cause I have all it takes
To be the one to blame
One night a week
'Cause I have all it takes
To be the one to hate
One night a week
And I know I won't be saved
'Cause I do like this game and love to seek.
Track Name: Eventually
Eventually,
I understood that
If my father
Was an omophobe
I'd fuck a man with anger.
And relief.

Don't you beg of me son
I just have begun
Can't you see kinda fun in this

I can remember, darling,
The way we used to do when we were little
Do ya?
Nothing I can tell, nothing I know.
Was easier than let out
Our rotten brain.

Precariously,
I am dancing through these
Years of unavoidable
Power
And fear
I just don't want to leave them.
Track Name: Sourdrop
Yes you have control
Like you hold me by the nose
But there will be no gripes
I'm a drop that silent falls

Night's the time to pray
Lives unroll during the day
Consider this a whine
That can't find the one to blame

And I could easilly tell
Who the one who crawls is
Just look at your face
I'm the one who crawls
Be the one who crawls

Don't know what's this for
Can't see other way to grow
While you try to make it last
I keep knocking upon my door

Don't really like this doubt
Can or can't we escape this crowd?
But when you start walking fast
Then it's me that's left to frown

And I could easilly tell
Who the one who crawls is
Just look at your face
I'm the one who crawls
Be the one who crawls
Track Name: Wasting Time Has Consequences
Here upon my knees
Can't feel that kind of torture
I always feared I would feel when I'd leave

I look in to your eyes
They, too, come from a culture
Even though we hide it like a sin

Uncanny is what's around
Find shelter in the mirror
And all the things I know just vaporize

White sheep up the hill
Grazing in the grassfield
Maybe they're just too true to be good

Old folks are back and eager
To dance with all your brides
Thousands thoughts but just one liver
Thousands lies

Unknown is kissed blown out the candle
Ancient rites dwell in one's chest
Fastened thongs around her ankles
It's my hands

Will you cry?
Will you cry!

Just an other lil' bit in their town
And they will toast when we leave.
Ain't no aces up my weekend sleeve,
Lost it spinninng a wheel.

And the wings of music shake off their old feathers
Leather kisses and ties downy legs
And She begs and comes over and over again.
I bargained for her silence, false or uncouth.
Ruthless my sweetheart, my revenant
Please your servant in his leisure.
No half measures is an utopian shelter.
Surrender still is far.

I was told that in dreams
It's always as it seems
But I'm still having troubles with this frame

Woke up in a song
To what should I belong?
Will a shower wash all of my sins away?

With my friend of the day
We went through truth-lie games
And basically that's all that I recall:

If what I bequeath is ok
Then I should stop feeling pain
But then it wouldn't be this fun at all.
