about

Gashxi is about holding/finding ground amidst uncertainty and chaos. A song about banding together. The lyrics are a response to the aftermath of intense urbanization and the role of making music as a means to endure the world spiraling out of control.

lyrics

ENGLISH TRANSLATION

V
A magazine with never-ending pages
It contains adverts which chase me around
They caught up to me and tripped me up
Search for your ground
Hands on your heart

CH
Come along above love
Music that protects us
Music to protect us from our inner demons
A band that lifts us from skyscrapers.

V II
A building without an infrastructure
An ad without an ending
They finish what I have to say, as if expressing my thoughts.
Stabilize my body
With my hands are on my heart.

CH
We built a high fence
A shadow protecting us from our neighbors’ evils
A band protecting us from our inner demons

BRIDGE
CH
We built Kuwaisiana.
We built Kuwaisiana.

Songs which distance us from our inner demons
A wall protecting us from the sins of America

ARABIC LYRICS

Verse I
مجلّة صفحاتها ما تخلص
فيها إعلانات تلحقني
وُصَلّتي تشان تعرقلني
دوّر ارضك / إيدك على قلبك

CH I
تعالو فوق الهواء
موسيقى تحمينّا من شرور نفوسنا
فرقة ترفعنا من ناطحات سحّاب

VII
بناية بدون هيكل
دعاية بدون نهاية
تكمّل كلامي, كأنها تعبّرعن أفكاري.
يوّد گشّي
إيدي على قلبي

CH II
بنينا سور عالي
ظلٌ يحمينا من شرور جيرانا
فرقة تحمينا من شرور نفوسنا

CH III
بنينا كويزيانا
أغاني تبعدنا من شرور نفوسنا
طوفة تحمينا من ذنوب أمريكا
