Solara

"Went from a typical 90's-type rocker to something that felt like it belonged." -BC, SP Nexus 2014-03-28

"Back through the COUGARS we fell. I circled round 'SOLARA.' 'Too grunge though,' I offered, a negative buzzword in these parts. 'Better if it was straight, or more psych.' Singing the melody I came up with an opening figure reminiscent of 'Heaven and Hell' Sabbath (Go Tony). Sketched out a basic 2-part guitar demo, and with some digi-magik made the beat that made it a rocka-rolla (Go Priest). Funny what a riff can do to a spine. So 'SOLARA' is back with the STARS." -BC, 2014-04-12

"Today was one-song pony time; being 'in or out for 'SOLARA.' Tried it: acoustic, the same, psych, synth, Sabbath shuffle, and dead-flower straight. Somehow it kind of works, and lives on." -BC, 2014-04-14

 

Lyrics

Burn down the sun
I'm not everyone
High and dry
Nothing but a body in my mind

I'm here to stay
They're here today
High and dry
Nothing but a body in my mind
I'm nothing but a body in my mind

I feel that something ain't right
No fear but reasons that I can't cite

Tear down the sun
Bring down the sun
I'm not everyone
I'm not everyone
I'm not everyone

Unholy sin
Unholy fate
High and dry
Nothing but a body in my mind
I'm left to ash
Not here but past
High and dry
Nothing but a body in my mind
I am nothing but a body in my mind

I feel that something ain't right
No fear but reasons that I can't cite
Tear down the sun
Bring down the sun
I'm not everyone
I'm not everyone
I'm not everyone
Burn down the sun

Speculation
Come on, get yourself together
Speculation
Become the owl at midnight
Situation
I am the seer, I am the seeker
Situation
Become the one that fights you
Become the one that fights you
Become the owl at midnight
Become the owl at midnight

High and dry
I'm ash made time
With sun, too bright
I am nothing but a body in my mind
I am nothing but a body in my mind

Tear down the sun
Bring down the sun
I'm not everyone
I'm not everyone
Burn down the sun
