Momentum 01:11
We are high, we are low And just float through dead space, change the emphasis Every now, every then We float through dead space, to find a fitting place

Welcome to the margin of mankinds doom So far away but closer than anyone knew Out in dead space nearby Eris, where deep doubts grew Still aware there’s no way to break on through In desire grew the madness, now there’s so much to lose So they hastened to their spacecrafts to vent their gloom Hear the guns, what they have to say Within cascades of burning rage We rely on the deadly reign We all know, and it still remains In desire grew the madness, now there’s so much to lose In a neverending desert, where their dreams became loose So they hastened to their spacecrafts to vent their gloom All the rotten rebel yells In the vastness of Kuiper Belt In an upcoming emptiness With a peerless malevolence Mayhem

Albert II 02:58
“Why do we go further than god has allowed?” I asked him and frowned. “You two are my favourite test subjects.” He said, giggled and grinned. “I know I have been bad but leave me alone, let him down!” “Close the capsule and wave him goodbye!” “Why can’t we search for my notions around?” Laughter and sound I can’t tell the feeling, just something aroused Wait to be found I played my role but it didn’t work out Lost my course Accepting the fact that I’m driftin’ away Get it out of my way This way I’m satisfied I went into the light

Sunlit Hill 07:14
Here I remain so high, no infringement by your side, Not even gods, no curse, no tear, not even moods Break the chains to all my pride, on this hill I still survive Maybe no more by your side, the way you choose You appear like you don’t mind, like a shard to make me blind Like a witch haunting my tries, let me know, tell me why Maybe you are not a lie, I cannot read it in your mind I expect no sacrifice, come as you are, as you are And here I roam again, waiting for to try I try My last cause to defend, till the day I die Fancy little clouds, all around this sacred place Where my heart shall rest in peace, not to loose, not to bruise A bright light from my eyes, not the sun, not the moon Where a star will find his last place to gloom, facing doom And here I roam again, waiting for my trial I try My bastion to defend, till the day I die The hours I spend to defend, are hours to get home again You and I The hours we spend to defend, are hours to get home again Without lies

I’m heading for the limits I’m draining every single drop of life And less won’t make me happy ‘Cause I need to feel the might All to Stay alive, stay alive To gain before another tries Stay alive, stay alive I live to make it mine, all mine I’m reapin’ all I’m gettin’ ‘Cause mother earth won’t need it anymore Diggin’, drainin’, suckin’, Not even abandoning the core I need another planet, Or maybe further two or three or four Why not the whole universe For a brand new high score I feel sick, so bad I have to be much stronger against the vultures ’round my head Consume whole space And extinguish every little creep who dares to challenge me

Solstice 03:20
Take my dream and use it for an act Never agreed to come along, come along Take this simple glimpse of my grown faith And waste my trust to claim your race, to dead space A soul for your loyal crooked slaves And I know it is OK A soul as a whore to confirm your trace I insist on it’s OK My profit on an ethical adjusted wage And the chosen take the blame A new cycle and the same old game I plant a tree in greater gods device And leave it to your cold dead hands, cold dead hands A soul for your solid grown up fame And I know it is OK A soul for all the pain that paves the way I insist on it’s OK Built with a solid grown up faith Pulled from my strong hands In solstice A soul for a solid grown up fame And I know it is OK A soul for all the victims that pave the way I insist on it’s OK A strong withered fallout by the way In need to explain
7.
Terrians 03:59
A vivid soul’s gotta wicked, another’s playing with fire Charlie Goodheart descends, forced to a shape they desire And they’re so close, to put up with life Up right here, to cut off the wire Instead of lighting a fire They’re not steady upright Instead of calling a world ours to share Another actor approaches, so do they handle with care? And we’re so close, to share a home A voice stammering aloud: “Jesus, save our souls!” “Now open the fire!!!” Cut down to the wire They’re not steady upright Instead of calling a world ours to share Another actor approaches, so do they handle with care? But we’re so close, to share a rime Ours is home, in here to combine Starting with a fire Supporting the wire Lighting a fire Close to the wire Terrians

Take a ride with me, find the time within Take my hand and let me strand And show me places I have never seen You smiled at my sight and said it’s alright Where I can rest my mind, will it ever come? Never took me away, I still wait for the day Where you show me places I’ve never seen Smiled at my sight and said it’s all right Smelling the kerosene Like a perfume in the air, I’d wished you were there, But I’d never left, I swear, I promised you I’d care Tasting the benzedrine, My chemical brain said we’ll meet again So I wait for you to turn in your mind, the way you set your time You smiled a thousand smiles In an hourglass-world you won’t be mad There’ll be no need to call me “wife”, come with me and start a life Remember the day, when you told me. It was the day we met. And I was afraid. All of our years vanished. But are we beyond that? And who is to say? Questions I can’t answer, I didn’t raise. We all raised something, but it never meant doubt. Doubts were for the believers and nobody was. Still we kept pushing forward. When all of a sudden millions stopped and slowly faded away. There’s no rush anymore. We were a long time around and with calm exaggeration you said “Let’s take a ride!” We grow to be young again But your pavement-coloured past recalls Feel the concrete under your feet ‘Cause when the time is right, it’s a free for all But we are on the way to the top Like a jelly roll on the rocks Oh, my sweet Sally It’s the dawn of a new age

Sweet Violet 04:58
The roaring sweetness Of a distant whispering lure I hear the sirens Behind these curtains lies the cure A close encounter Seems the strangers are not pure The roaring sweetness Of a distant whispering cure The vulture’s in your mind The vulture’s in your kind The vulture’s in your mind Your kind, let it be How astounding Like a storm it drags along These ancient powers I’m your whore, I’ll be that strong Decadent flowers Pickin’, lickin’, fade to black

Elite 02:18
Music: Andreas Gaubitzer Words: Roland Ripka
11.
Sometimes I wish I were Too weak, too shy, too short, too high This moment only, never more If I cannot stand war cries A dark cold cellar So deep, so lonesome, long and wide If I stumble down these stairs Then I see your face in blood Bloodshed
12.
Sweet home so far, sweet home so far, the end so near, the end so near And no way back, the engines crack and emphasize the beat of tears The stars still fade, the dark awakes and finally a comet waves For my last will, to take the thrill I put it in it’s hand, my lonesome end The repeating of a whisper in the twilight of a stone Makes my future look so bright and takes me off to the unknown This phantom is my everything and leads me to the light Dear light, please respond to my deep fright Take me up with all your might Delight Is it faith, I still need to come along Is it remorse I need for all my deeds, I was not strong And all I believed is put into a wage, my judgement day

Silentium 00:59
14.
The day I was born, mama said take care A cut through the cord and I’ll become all aware The sentence is passed, here comes the son At least I’m caught here, my spaceship’s on a run We are high, we are low And just float through dead space, change the emphasis Every now, every then We need a fitting place, head on against the wall I’m high, I’m bound, my free will My free choice, it caused me to heed this call Our shared belief due, is nothing but innocent My mind awakes, my body shuts my lung And I feel so sick, but why I’m so sick My heart is not sick, my mind is it sick? We are high, we are low And just float through dead space, change the emphasis Every now, every then We need a fitting place, and head on against the wall We are high, we are caused to fit our rim You are high, you are low Because your inner blaze Still points right through the wall Every now, every now I need a fitting place and head on against the wall On the top I’m my own, my last free will

about

Recorded in their own studio “Gold Rush in Dead Space” tells stories about distant places (“Sunlit Hill”), times (“Battle of Eris”), the first ape (“Albert II”), the first woman (“Sally, Take a Ride With Me”) and the last man (“Out of Oxygen”) in outer space. Further they explore relevant topics like the greediness of mankind (“Here Comes the ReaperMan”) and its drive for expansion (“Elite”). Now to something completely different: They have their finger on the pulse of our fragile present age.
Their sound floats between past, present & future, between Ziggy Stardust, Arcade Fire & Curiosity. Solar Manoeuvre play their amalgamrock “8 Miles High” with a touch of “Brain Damage” but always “Straight to Hell”.

about

Solar Manoeuvre Klosterneuburg, Austria

Wrap up five ingenious musicians in space suits and shoot them right into outer space. What will you get? One outstanding, higher-than-sky rock experience? Right. Smooth as silk guitar sounds enveloping around panty-tight rhythms even NASA’s DSAC could synchronize with? That’s right too. Well, almost right. ... more
