Quasar

"It was one of those riffs that we had laying around for a while. Actually, I think it went back to when I started working with Mike Byrne in 2009. The original riff was called 'Nero Riff-O.' So it sat around for a long time, and I was finally able to turn it into a song.

"It's a little bit of what I used to do, even in terms of process. The way I wrote when I first got into rock was, I'd write these crazy riffs and time signatures, and then I'd sit there and think, OK, what the hell am I going to sing over this? It was a way of working backwards.

"With a song like this, I know we were using a combination of a Marshall Super Tremolo amp with four rhythm guitars, and the other guitars went through a Reeves Custom Jimmy head, which is the re-creation of Jimmy Page's Led Zeppelin I amp. It's incredible." -BC, MusicRadar interview, 2012/06/13

 

Lyrics

God right on!
Krishna right on!
Mark right on!
Yod He Vau He Om
Let’s ride on!
Right on!
Let’s ride on!

Fated One hold me down
Know my blur and my keep
Do I know you?
What keeps us free if you believe?
Please allow me to say hello to you
Yes I understand
Yes I know thy will
Yes I am that man
Yes, I
Yes, I

Lover, lover, catch me slow
You can serve me notice
You can have my sight
Lover, lover stay with me all night

Yod He Vau He Om
Brothers, Sisters roam!
Sunlight ride on!
Yod He Vau He Om
Let’s ride on!
Right on!
Ride on!

Yes I understand
Yes I know thy will
Yes I am one man
Yes I
Yes I understand
Yes I know thy will
Yes I am one man
Yes, I
Yes, I
Yod He Va Hey Om
Yod He Va Hey Om
Yod He Va Hey Om
Om...
