    Farsi is such a weird sounding language.

    try this - not exaclty rap but nice ! - black cats - i like this one in particular - i like the lady at 0 min 10 sec - soo beautiful !!!

    but the language is tough - wish they could use romanised form too - like turkish - wish hindi would romanise too ! ( nort many ppl would agree with me on that - i feel there should be both the original script and romanised )

    YAS - Hoviate Man



    English Translation:

    Listen. I want to tell you my intent
    They want to erase my identity
    The history of the land of the Aryans
    Is screaming until we come to it
    So now is the time for you to hear
    Iran is my land the
    The country which after 7000 years
    Is still standing
    And the hearts of Iranians -- still like the sea
    Hear this, my fellow Iranian, from YAS
    I too for my land stand like a soldier
    Hold Iran like a gem in your hand and say
    My complaint will burst out like a shot
    Let's stand together and sing our anthem
    My sisters, my brothers, my fellow Iranians
    Iran's civilization is in danger
    All of us are soldiers beneath our flag
    We won't let anyone spread lies about us
    For us Iranians it is our calling
    That we wear the symbol of 'Farvahar' around our necks
    Our unity against an enemy is the cause of their distress
    Iran's name for us is an honor
    And our respect for her is like a thorn in eye for those
    Who want to injure her

    CHORUS:

    - Like the thirst of a seed [wheat] for water
    - Like the dampness of rain, the smell of earth
    - Like you, pure eyes, like the feeling of its earth, for you
    - My land. Singing for you is in my heart
    - Singing of my land, is my feeling
    - My love - the earth of this land -- Iran

    You want to say that we came from generations of Barbarians?
    So take a look then to Takht Jamshid!
    You're showing Iran's name in vein
    So yours could be written big on a cover of a CD [DVD}?
    I'm writing down your intentions in my book
    I know why you wrote this film "300"
    I know that your heart is made of stone and lead
    Instead of using your art to make a culture of peace
    In this sensitive air and bad atmosphere
    You want to start fishing in murky waters [profiting]
    But this I tell you in its original language
    Iran will never be spoiled and surrendered
    God has given you two eyes to see
    Take a look and read the books written by
    Saadi and Ibn-e-Sina, Ferdosi, Khayam or Molana Rumi
    Always throughout history we were the start [on top]
    But now YAS can't sit down quietly
    Let Iran's name be marred by a few tricksters
    I'll shred your intentions with the "razor of hope"
    Who are YOU to speak of the history of Iran?

    - CHORUS -

    It was Cyrus The Great that started the peace
    Freeing the Jewish from the grip of Babylon
    Cyrus The Great wrote the first bill of human rights
    That is why I carry my esteem and great pride
    For my Iran. The history of my land
    For the earth of this land which my body is from
    Whatever part of the world you live my fellow Iranian
    And till your blood flows through you
    Don't allow yourself to be satisfied
    That anyone can fool around with your heritage
    The history of Iran is my identity
    Iran -- protecting your name is my good intent

    "Ekhtelaf" (Difference) by Hichkas. A powerful song with powerful lyrics.

    1 was jsut listening to Özgür Eren - Yanarım Aşkına Can Yar (Klip)

    and Özgür Eren-Ceylan gözlerine kurban oldogum.

    both are available via youtube and the singer Ozgur Eren , singing in turkish , looks more towards mongolian or rather Uzbek

    very beautiful - tried looking up biography - tough - it's all in turkish ....maybe Ewald can help ?

    Tasmim. Iranian protest song.
    Tasmim - Erfan feat. Khashayar [Official Music Video] Iran Rap Fars Persian music farsi - YouTube


    English Translation:

    Again, everyone's heart is darkened
    this is the song of my heart
    this is the poison of Ahriman
    that is murdering my city
    that offends everyone
    if all are there, still its not enough
    How ever much they endure seems not enough
    how ever much they endure will be all sorrow

    *(Repeat Chorus 1)

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    God, take me with you, I am a mess
    The world as thrown us down, talking about us
    I am not easily upset, but how much more?
    yes, from A to Z, without exaggeration or reservation now i am going to tell you
    in it, there is only verses,
    lots of courage and balls
    lots of love and a bit of goodness
    lots of thought and a bit of prayer
    lots of work and a bit of results
    that is our efforts are fruitless
    years and years we have grown used to uselessness
    eight years my bothers were in death shrouds
    millions and millions of corpses we gave
    now they are totally in line
    wallowing in addiction, in action
    everyone is you and us and me
    everyone is wallowing in moon and moonlight
    the trip from home to burial site
    buried alive, everyone is silenced and choked
    but I sing about hope because my world is in my hands
    I know my path, I will stick to it like a flea
    the last curses I utter is still my word
    the last curses I sing, are the instrument of my death

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    (Chorus 2)
    Make a decision, so we don't surrender
    stand up on your feet, don't discriminate
    this is life, even if you keep saying
    its no use
    its as if they tell us, if you die there will be no tears
    you can recognize the difference between a lie and the truth
    take a good look at your life because
    you are not difference from a living corpse

    * * * * * * * * * * *
    So my life is all filled with sorrow, yes
    the only thing missing when there is sorrow is a musical instrument
    you say our Iran is out fault, everyday you say this
    but you beat and you kill, hard core, yes
    so then its natural, for him to be insane
    you should know that its for you and me that he has lost his life
    one should have thick skin, should be ruthless
    not give up home, not many days are left till judgment day
    I am in everybody's' eyes, like the headlines of a newspaper
    if I say swear words, they say Khashi (2nd) has problems
    but he is not like you guys, who have serious issues
    he goes, he speaks up, he gets there how ever way he can
    the effort to make you understand seems wasted
    its like peeling away the eyes of a beggar from a coin
    my brother, I am Iranian, and I will die in its soil
    may the whole world be lucky to even dream of such passion

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    (Chorus 2)
    Make a decision, so we don't surrender
    stand up on your feet, don't discriminate
    this is life, even if you keep saying
    its no use
    its as if they tell us, if you die there will be no tears
    you can recognize the difference between a lie and the truth
    take a good look at your life because
    you are not difference from a living corpse

    ********************

    There was a day when we could carry the world on our backs
    now it's our downtime
    if you remove words of war and atoms (3rd), our core is pure
    from all their lies, which should I believe?
    who stands with me?
    yes, your sun will set one day
    they say we are barbarians, a cursed and terrorist nation
    we have a contract with grim ripper
    till you are around we wont surrender
    now a 500 year old people, rules us
    they tramples the world, leaves behind soldiers
    hates our freedom, our history and our faith
    but our sacrifice wont let it happen
    Iran has given us such courage
    Our Iran, is in ruins till our lions are in this condition
    Our Iran, is in ruins till our elders remain asleep
    Yes, say it that you wont be sleeping
    Yes, say you wont allow it
    Say it : "that you will shine with this many thousand year old light"
    say it : "that you will endure all this pressure and all this tyranny"
    Say that : "you will never leave its side even from far away"

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    (Chorus 2)
    Make a decision, so we don't surrender
    stand up on your feet, don't discriminate
    this is life, even if you keep saying
    its no use
    its as if they tell us, if you die there will be no tears
    you can recognize the difference between a lie and the truth
    take a good look at your life because
    you are not difference from a living corpse

    * * * * * * * * * * *

    (Chorus 1)
    Again, everyone's heart is darkened
    this is the song of my heart
    this is the poison of Ahriman
    that is murdering my city
    that offends everyone
    if all are there, still its not enough
    How ever much they endure seems not enough
    how ever much they endure will be all sorrow
