about

Babelonia is our second, much anticipated album.
This album was recorded the good ol' analog way and mastered as well with the "war on loudness" in mind, keeping the dynamics intact without squeezing the hell out of the recording's life.
In this record everything is played by a person.
No loops, no sequences, no tricks, just good hard work at playing an instrument.
LISTEN TO THE RECORD!

Sonar Lights performs using: PRS Guitars, Sterling by MusicMan Basses, ddrum Drums, Bogner Amplification, Pigtronix Effects, Dunlop Electronics, Mono, Trailer Trash Pedalboards, George L's cables, Clayton Picks, Westone In Ear Monitors.

Track Name: Wake Up
You buy, comply
To fit into this void that takes your life
The trends and friends
The virtual world of egos never ends

CHORUS
Wake up! From this suspended animation
Wake up! It’s an open invitation
Take a look inside my head
There’s a kaleidoscope
Can you find the shapes of hope?

You strive, survive
This evil haunts you down screws with your mind
The flesh, the skin
And all the senses that won’t let you win

CHORUS
Track Name: Through the Eyes of a Son
Hush now pretty baby don’t you cry
Momma’s gonna love ya and dad will try
Make you understand the reason why
You are here to change this crazy lie

Hush now angel, hide inside your dreams
Love and hate are closer than it seems
Illusions meant to be so they divide
It is a bumpy ride so hold on tight

CHORUS

I wanna see the world through your eyes
Figure a way out
I wanna find out if there is a choice

I wanna see this life through your eyes
Keep me moving on
There’s nothing that can’t be undone
Track Name: Take the Money And Run
You better run, you better hide
Cause they are back in town
They’ll steal the sun, they’ll kill your smile
And gonna keep you down

CHORUS
Watching and waiting
Anticipating
To get ahead in this life
Do or die
An eye for an eye
The only way to survive

They’ll say you’re crazy
They’ll say you’re lazy
Dark souls full of pride
Forget their rules
It’s only for fools
Take the money and run

You fight for good you fight for right
They don’t seem to care
Now shut their mouth and tie them tight
It is time to go somewhere

CHORUS
Track Name: Rock Is Dead
We’re sick and tired of mediocrity
That’s pushed around on every chance
A shiny bubble of supremacy
And masses clap while in a trance

You say that “change is copy
what’s on the radio”
You must be joking when you
Turn around, smile and tell me:
“Rock is dead”

You lose your soul in chasing numbers
Like chasing shadows in the dark
Degrade a generation’s consciousness
In the name of your forsaken god

Don’t even try to hide it
Makes such a perfect sense now
When hungry vultures like you
Scream into my face and tell me:
“Rock is dead”

BRIDGE

Will you sing along tonight with me
“rock n’ roll is here to stay”?
I don’t see a reason to explain
You won’t see the reason why.

“Rock is dead”…
Track Name: Out of Time Out of Mind
You took my heart, you want my soul now
I have been waiting for so long
Now watch me fall from grace
Cuz of your pretty face

CHORUS
I’ve been abused, I’ve been confused
You left me cryin’
Your evil eyes keep telling lies
There’s no denyin’
Must set a lock upon your lips
No key to find
I’m running out of time
I’m running out of mind

You had me walk the Fools’ Parade
I joined your merry masquerade
My love was all in vain
You made me bleed again

CHORUS
Track Name: Don't You Fade Away
Close your eyes, imagine you can fly
Hold your breath, imagine you can die
Shed a tear for all whose life’s destroyed my dear
Light a fire and burn the past in its entire

Seeking love, a love that’s turned to greed
Left alone, in fields of dreams to sleep
Devour your pride, you feel the warmth turn into cold
Compress your pain, forgetting what the world was told

CHORUS
Don’t fade away
Your blood of ice will leave no trace
Don’t run in place
You race against your finish line

Open your eyes, you know that you can fly
Catch your breath, don’t fall without a fight
Turn your back to all of those who laugh at you dear
Make a stand, or else our hopes will die in fear.
Track Name: Reset
I had a dream last night
That I had an eagle’s eyes
Watching for broken souls
In the circus of this world

CHORUS

Globe was turning
Yearning, yearning
Never learning how to love

Oceans blood red
Raindrops of pain
Numbers in place of fallen names
If only we could
Reset the whole game
The songs of true happiness would only remain.

I had a dream last night
That there was no hope in sight
Debt was too high to pay
No matter how hard we tried…

CHORUS
