Forever 1969 Some say that we are out of our time But they don’t see That what they’ve got Ain’t where I wanna be Times may change But the struggle remains the same You like to think think That we’re left behind But really man we’re ahead of our time Cause ‘69 Is another state of mind Butterflies and rainbows and an old song Stuck inside my head Just an idea That’s always stayed with me That You can be Whoever you want to be In that way We are all born free It’s the ego trip That I can’t dig That you claim to know What’s new and hip and you like to think think That we’re left behind But really man we’re ahead of your time Cause ‘69 Is another state of mind

They say home is where the heart is Mine’s detained on unknown charges I would set it free and never come back So if you see it can you draw me a map I belong in a town called nowhere A place between A and B in the cold air Like a psychedelic ranger With no way home you’re always a stranger Like a lost son I approach the border Sending a thought to a lonely mother I feel changed but here is the same Same old streets with the same old names Everybody longs for something somewhere I long for my heart in the middle of nowhere The psychedelic ranger No way home, always a stranger Like a psychedelic ranger With no way home The psychedelic ranger No way home, always a stranger

The Stranger 03:06

No Chaser 01:34
Man we’ve got to move on Get out of town before dawn Run and never look back Cast no shadow as you’re moving along We have to break free They’re coming for me And I don’t want this trip to come down Friend step inside my dream Even if, from the outside, it may seem Strange, but once you see what I see You’ll start to be the one that you want to be LSD You’ve got to hold on If the trip is too strong Cast no shadow as you’re moving along We depart the destination A trip to cancel all creation This current is strong Cast no shadows as we’re moving along We have to break free They’re coming for me And I don’t want this trip to come down

Theaters are open on this evening You can go and see it too Painting of the evening sky Is swiftly done You can add some color too A nickel for the ferryman will do So empty all your pockets : I’m gonna give you some advice and baby, you better take it Set out for your dreams and you won’t have to fake it Mountains turn to dust On the horizon Tell me what you’re thinking Public executions have Been banned Outside the sun is shining A breeze has come with Heat from giant fires You can even sing it too I’m gonna give you some advice and baby, you better take it Set out for your dreams and you won’t have to fake it I’m gonna say it twice And hope you will take it Set out for your dreams and you won’t have to fake it
6.
In the circle of things life tries to find a balance in the cosmic mind With every breath it takes away a new idea is born and wishes to stay But time erases the traces you’ve left All of our plans laid to rest Snow piles to hide the trails Sunlight stretch the summer days Birds are carried away on their wings One arrives to where it begins Only the circle of life remains the circle of life remains Love rests in the heart of me As the island rests in a living sea Your eyes will see what loving gives Living is easy when life is all there is
7.
I’ve been sleeping I’ve been gone so long If I wake I will be too sad to talk Night came creeping Without bringing the dawn It’s the edge of our time Now I say no more Earth begins to move again Nothing else has made it Past the bend I’ve been crying But that too is done I’m falling to pieces Under the sun Silence like it’s never been heard before In a world without sound I feel so alone Earth begins to move again Nothing else has made it Past the bend

Christiania 03:24
I come here to have a bit Of fruit for my head Who says It ain’t for me The seed the trees and all of the green leaves Yeah I know what’s good for me Think it over You think it over This is all you need to know Times are changing The times they are changing The pigs are back to feed Won’t let me enjoy some peace The free town has to go to pave the road for greed Why don’t you set it free I like to be Lighter; even lighter than the air But the stones will fly before they try take what we all share We know where it’s good to be Think it over You think it over We all feel and we all know Times are changing The times they are changing The pigs are back to feed Won’t let me enjoy some peace The free town has to go to pave the road for greed Why don’t you set it free
9.
The darkest eyes in the room Are staring at the door A grim ghost of the past Has come (back) for some more White clouds in the night Are quietly drifting by The shadows slip inside And turn down the lights A life in the air on a whirl It’s the sorrow of the world That no one seems to care Care for everyone everywhere A dry voice on the air Lets the empty words spread But a plain truth stares From the notebook by the bed A black mountain grows Right before one's eyes Night can’t hide the day much longer so it shows The life we know is gone Like snow under the sun Hitching a ride on a country road The blue sky feels so cold Life in the air on a whirl It’s the sorrow of the world That no one seems to care Care for everyone everywhere
10.
Love Bird 01:43
Love bird is flying and my baby she is crying Friends say that she’s overlooked that I can be read like an open book But they only know life on the shelf Cause it’s my time to leave when Jupiter and Venus are Perfectly aligned I’m waiting for a sign Love may be blind but I treat no one kind in the way I keep walking away Look to the sky, and I see the birds fly I’ll never be happy to stay and She deserves more than a lie Cause it’s my time to leave when Jupiter and Venus are Perfectly aligned I’m waiting for a sign
11.
I let every stranger in Never seem to close my door I’m filling my house and my head Each minute brings me a new situation It’s a stream that is breathing air into my life I want every day to change who we are Turn on, tune in and let the full impression begin A place without any real limitation Walk a street I’ve never been before Talk a talk I didn’t know I was hoping for It’s a stream that is breathing air into my life I want every day to change who we are Seeing it all from the side I trip and take a rest on the floor Rainbows are painted on the wall Now it’s only the rabbit that is white It’s a stream that is breathing air into my life I want every day to change who we are
12.
Islands In my In my own mind A traveler of time of time Escapes for days To my To my own place to my own space One more time Across the line Out of reach Washed up on my own beach Reality It folds It folds upon Upon itself I walk the backside of the strip I I wait for the eclipse for the second when the carpet starts to slip One more time Across the line Out of reach Washed up on my own beach One more time I cross the line Out of reach Washed up on my own beach
13.
The world moves slow Let your problems go Unwind the clock There’s no time you have to get up Let the days slowly blend Until you reach the end What difference does it make Give me something more that I can take The world moves slow Let your problems go Unwind the clock There’s no time you have to get up

about

Inspired by personal events and the current meltdown of the world as we know it, «Eclipse» deals with a feeling of despair that many will recognize.

However, the music is more multicolored than ever, because the path to a better future starts out in the mind. Eclipse is a journey out of the darkness. Some might say a trip.

“Were we indeed living in forever 1969 Eclipse would surely rank as a classic along the lines of ‘Surrealistic Pillow’”
—Paul Quinn, Ghostcultmag .com

“easily one of the best psychedelic pop albums of the decade.”
—A.S. van Dorston, Fastnbulbous .com

“Eclipse is The Sonic Dawn’s preliminary masterpiece”
—Andreas Schiffmann, Musikreviews .de

“an album in the absolute elite, when speaking about psychedelic retro rock.”
—Lasse Jacobsen, Heavymetal .dk

“a great melodic rock album made with soul and heart.”
—Cyril Lenoble, Coreandco .fr
