Sonar Lights Fort Worth, Texas

A rock trio from Fort Worth (Texas, USA) whose sound is an unapologetic punch in the face for fans of early heavy metal and late 70's/early 80's progressive rock. Their mighty, crunchy guitar riffs together with their pummeling rhythmic textures and dynamic melodic vocals are laced with old school elements while still maintaining the focus of a modern band.

Track Name: Here We Are
Here we are marching towards the future
Standing strong to the unknown forever

Empty sounds surounding prison
Blossomed bomb with given reason

We’ll be haunting your ways to the sky
Will be guiding your darkness firefly
Won’t you follow us into the light?
Stop confining yourself in your own lie

Here we are streaming away all questions
Fighting wars from far beyond this time

Iced volcano is our heartbeat
Calm before the storm is here
Track Name: Goodman
See him sailin’ in a sea of dreams
He knows that any wish could be reality
No strange land will ever bring him down
He won’t rest until he finds his crown

Brave new world
Will open up the door
His time will come
Goodmorning mr Goodman

A thousand miles he walked across the earth
No kings or queens onto his broken path
Shoots so high but always aims so low
Rocky roads will be the way to go
Track Name: The Enemy Within
Words mean nothing now
Who’s to blame, what is real to believe
Facts are distant so
Lies keep getting’ stronger takin’ over ground

Hear their fears
Wipe your tears
Look upon the sky…
The enemy within
Will drive our conscience clean
Of crimes we’ve all commit
But never will admit
The enemy within
Who was and always been
He’ll say and walk away
“Always obey never betray”

Locked up in dark rooms
Build our minds, pull our strings as puppeteers
Raising flags that sell
Bust our freedoms in the name of fire and doom

Silence slowly fading in
As we look upon the enemy within
Darkness slowly fading in
As we look upon the enemy within

It’s time to look inside
Reveal the things we hide
Be honest with ourselves
Rely on no one else
With no more blinded eyes
We’ll see how they disguise
Stand up and fire away
Never again obey
Track Name: Eleanor Rigby
Eleanor Rigby, picks up the rice
in the church where a wedding has been
Lives in a dream
Waits at the window, wearing the face
that she keeps in a jar by the door
Who is it for?

All the lonely people
where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
where do they all belong?

Father McKenzie, writing the words
of a sermon that no one will hear
No one comes near
Look at him working, darning his socks
in the night when there's nobody there
What does he care?

All the lonely people
where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people

Eleanor Rigby, died in the church
and was buried along with her name
Nobody came
Father McKenzie, wiping the dirt
from his hands as he walks from the grave
No one was saved

All the lonely people
where do they all come from?
All the lonely people
where do they all belong?

Ah, look at all the lonely people
Track Name: Help Me
Never thought I could end up
In this maddening place
Nothing left to look back
No one really there to embrace
Reaching out to the light
That reflects from a broken mirror

Help me understand, help me make a stand
Time is tickin’ by, makes me wonder why
Help me find my way, help me save the day
There’s winding road ahead
My eyes are reaching the sky
No stars to show me back home

When the needle cries
All fake dreams in my veins
Just a piece of the sky
Is all I need to stop the pain
All my memories lost in time
Like tears in the rain
Track Name: Mr Knowitall
Let’s take a walk together
Have a little chat
I want to take a look
Into your deepest thoughts for life

You’re full of confidence
That’s built on empty heart
You let the demons slowly
Crowl out from the dark

You can’t deny it
You want to be the one
Can’t hide it
A shitless little man
I see it coming
Your landscape crumbles down
But after all… you’re Mr Knowitall

I wonder if you ever
Judge yourself at all
Are sleepless nights a part
Of your pale bedroom wall

Your tiny little plans
Behind some people’s back
Won’t even get you far
So what the fuck you’re rushing for?

Faceless lies, blinded eyes
Ego brain, there’s no gain
All I know is I know nothing…
Track Name: Endorphin
I want her freckled chest to be my starry sky
Percussive skin onto my lips that makes me cry

Lets get high on Endorphine

Dig… Dig deeper down into my soul
Breathing the flame
Come on and do it again
She… She spreads her blackened wings to fly
Dive in my arms
Tonight together we fall, together we fall yeah…

I wanna feel her body’ s salt upon my tongue
I wanna be her twisted metal Leprecon

Lets get high on Endorphine
Track Name: Out In The Streets
Locked in your room with your army of fears
Insecure pressing keys of deception
Feeding these moments with desperate echoes
Of you searching ways of acceptation

Dreams won’t come true if you’re sitting around
Praying for someone to show up and help you
Pull off those needles that keep you on the ground
Let yourself go take a look around you!

Out in the streets feel the dust on your feet, chase the wind
The only way to find yourself!
See the blue skies, run through the aisles, break free
There’s nothing that can put you down!

Remember the time when you were full of hope
None could break into your glorius castle
Huddled in staircases, million faces
You think they will end up this hustle

Open your eyes realize what you are
Sense the strength of your will taking over
Stop living your life in a tube, take a grip
You’re a joke if you think that’s the truth!
Track Name: Oversaturated
In this world of quick decisions
Wrong conclusions, pointless missions
Why find a deeper meaning
Put the blame on others feelings

No one asked you what your dreams of
Silky smoke over your pillow
Easy judgment hard acceptance
Now you’re through come back tomorrow
Life! Is oversaturated
Rise! Against what’s indicated

Flood of data, countless networks
Lost in void of false religions
What is now has passed in seconds
Be the trend with this drug you’re on
Track Name: Game
Hey you…
Did you find another victim
Did you let me drink your poison
When I let you in my heart

How long
Will you keep me in your spell
Will you tell me I’m the one
Till your purposes are done

Can I find some new direction
Turn my life around without you

You don’t wanna hear, you don’t wanna see
You don’t wanna go, you don’t wanna stay
Nothing to believe, nothing to concieve
Your Game ‘ s almost over

Fading memories will be forgotten
And the time will heal my wounds
Though the scars will still remain

Cry now…
No one else will hear you pleading
No more lies to stop the bleeding
No more emptiness inside

You better hide away
There’s nothing more to say
Your little game is done
Hear me screaming!
Track Name: Wardance
Hide, this dark world is full of lies
Cry, you really need not to survive
Die, in the end you know it’s right to die

They dressed up crime with ideals
Confusing monsters bearing deals
Justifying everything they do
You bow your knees onto the screen
Don’t pay attention to the scream
Living what’s supposed to be so true

Heaven or hell, enjoying life into fear
Evil and good, out of balance dissapear
God unknown, cries out we’re on our own

We have no time to stand and stare
So much rush and so much glare
Robots marching lockstop to nowhere
Free your minds it’s just a ride
Here’s the chance to turn the tide
Don’t let them tell you what to decide

Gather now around the fires
Feel the beat under your skin
Move your feet over empires
Let the wardance now begin
