Harry Harrison I already had their first album 'Perception’ & hadn’t realised that The Sonic Dawn’ were in Bandcamp until just now. They’ve always be one of my favourite psych bands and this album has just cemented that opinion. Lovin’ the super trippy Beatles-esque back-masking & song structure. Unlike their first offering, this one requires a couple of listens before you truly appreciate it & then it just gets better after each listen. It’s some of the creamiest Heavy Psych out there. Favorite track: Numbers Blue.

Track Name: Emily Lemon
Jack of Diamonds had a daughter like none
she was born down on highway sixty-one
her first mother was a famous gypsy queen
who gave her red lips and made one eye green
because her love was rich, plenty and sweet
the name Emily Lemon could balance the sheet

I’ve heard what she said as a child:
“Now I can see
inside you and me
fear not if I fall
in no time at all
the ground will go soft if I smile”

In a game of chess with Houdini, she won
then outran the Devil and kept moving on
she never found a reason to hold nothing in
words of hers easily slipped under my skin
she brought the sound of the universe here
and for me she made a mountain disappear

Here’s what she said, it was wild:
“Now I will choose
to loosen the noose
they put on your neck
the day when they said
that you were no longer a child”
Track Name: On the Shore
There I am
only a man
who feels that I should know better
turn around
eyes to the ground
those words could make out a letter

Eyes are bright
smiles are tight
I’m paper folding a boat
down the stream
like a dream
floating with words that I wrote

Please, please, please
let me find life for my love
please, please, please
let me find life for my love

From my hand
I understand
my heart is leading this pen
I will say
lose our way
I like the change that we’re in

Two, not three
lost in the sea
like tears disappear in the rain
day will break
us wide awake
if we’re on the shore once again

Please, please, please
let me find life for my love
please, please, please
let me find life for my love
Track Name: As of Lately
As of lately
I’ve been turning my head around
trying to see clearly
what it is that is weighing me down

I’ll let them stare
through the cold and silent air
and the feeling that I get, will make me aware
I still hear them when there’s no one here
tales told just to fill me with fear

Since just this morning
I have looked them in the eyes
living the cornes
of my mind
all I will offer is a compromise
all I will offer is a compromise

I’ll let them stare
through the cold and silent air
and the feeling that I get, will make me aware
I still hear them when there’s no one here
tales told just to fill me with fear
Track Name: Six Seven
Six horsemen came to take him out
he knew what they were going to bring about
his dreams and the truth ran down the drain
the river turned bleak in a hushed complain

When passing the trees behind silent hill
night fell thick and seven horses stood still
fear twisted his soul and he became hollow
where he now rides, death will follow

Get in line and listen to Uncle Sam:
A dead man’s body doesn’t give a damn
lost lives might be for your eyes to see
but better it be him, than you and me
Track Name: Numbers Blue
The roots go deep
but I move far and wide
there’s a kick to my boots
and I have nothing to hide

I walk to a guy in a suit
and ask him if it’s true
that just below the bottom line
it’s blood that makes the numbers blue

Whatever you’ve got has got you too
what you don’t like doesn't like you too
if all you want is more it’s long overdue
more doesn’t want to give anymore to you

To the guys wearing neckties
say, I’ve got something to tell
all the water that we drink
is drawn from the same well

Do you hear me, money man
did you understand that line?
If everybody drank like you,
the water would be drained from cloud nine

Whatever you’ve got has got you too
what you don’t like doesn’t like you too
If all you want is more it’s long overdue
more doesn’t want to give anymore to you
Track Name: Lights Left On
Early morning and I’m not at all dead
the sun shines at half the house
as if to say, there’s a day ahead

Bells ring loud from an empty church
lights left on in my local morgue
as if to say, you can always emerge

One side of the moon was left dark just for me
the bottom left hard to reach in the deepest sea
the sun’s burning just to keep me away
but I move closer every night and all day

I don’t remember my lover’s name
she’s got golden hair and sleeps with a smile
as if to say, it’s all the same... but it’s not

One side of the moon was left dark just for me
the bottom left hard to reach in the deepest sea
the sun’s burning just to keep me away
but I move closer every night and all day

I know today I’ve got something to do
my heart drives me like a locomotive
as if to say, let’s go somewhere new
Track Name: l'Espion
She asks me, what are you like, and says,
There’s no point to hide it
I look at my arm but there’s no watch
I never really liked the box
and that’s why I never tried it

No telling how it came to be
looking at you, I think I can see
straight through the skin and to the bone
no secrets left to call your own

She asks me, what’s that you wear, and says,
So peculiar, and smiling
I look at myself and my shade
empty words make colors fade
and that’s why I can be silent

No telling how it came to be
looking at you, I think I can see
straight through the skin and to the bone
no secrets left to call your own
Track Name: Summer Voyage
Today is the day my ship comes in
under the melting sky I see clouds spin
I touch the grass and I feel everything

Once at the horizon but now I am here
since today this will be everywhere
from now on always never not there

Somehow everyone I see
makes it very clear to me
that they are all exactly where they want to be
that they are all exactly where they want to be
that they are all exactly where they want to be

Their foreign words I understand
as they talk I see the world expand
a new beginning is born in this unknown land

Patience my love, she says to me
don't let your life pass by so easily
as the blue sun rises I come to agree

Somehow everyone I see
makes it very clear to me
that they are all exactly where they want to be
that they are all exactly where they want to be
that they are all exactly where they want to be
