about

Stellar Perceptions is the spectacular conclusion of Solar Manoeuvre's Space Trilogy. It tries to mirror what is happening right now and how people see what is currently happening in this universe. Two sides which represent the complete opposites of each other. On one side there is Anhedonia - the lack to see anything positive and being unable to feel joy and lust. On the other side Synesthesia - to be overwhelmed by everything, to see and feel everything in all possible combinations. This latest iteration takes you on a journey to explore not only others but also yourself.

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

Track Name: Welcome Manoeuvre
Hey, my oh my
It’s good to see you’re healthy, with arms open wide,
I welcome you tonight
I’m so highly esteemed, to have you all around here
Now feel free, to rock around with me

Welcome to my ballroom
Side by side you’ll see
Up here in my ballroom
And all the drinks for free
Track Name: Odyssey
At least, far away, on a beach, all is gone
Behind the roaring storms, threatening waves, and no sun

Blazing insane, through these fires I walked
Wide open heart, and with darkness I brawled
It’s a matter of fact, that the harder I fought
These storms have grown and grown, and taken all I was

Get, get, get get all I’ve lost
~I know I’m always longing~
Get, get, get, get all I’ve lost
~I know I’m always longing for~

Leading away, back to where the fires brawl
A dark, open sea, filled with dreadful pain and loss
It’s a matter of fact, that the longer I fought
These storms have grown and blown me back to where I was

Let, let, let, let, let me go
~I know I won’t be longing~
Let, let, let, let, let me grow
~I know I won’t belong here~
Let, let, let, let, let me go
~I know I’m always longing~
Let, let, let, let, let me grow
~I know I’m always longing for~
Track Name: Nexus 6K
Word of advice, 11 men ready to jump the gun
Trust someone, nature’s power crushes safety
Fading Light, 11 men – always on the run
Catch 22, losing control of our sanity

Just another day in the sun – dehydration won’t slow your fall
Yet another day in the sun – burning up there’s no one else to call

The heat, the fire, a call, believing in tensions
The man, his voice, a liar, hoping for a good cause
Fails our kind – selflessness prevailed
You have to pay the price – leaving all behind

Just another day in the sun – dehydration won’t slow your fall
Yet another day in the sun – burning up there’s no one else to call

Help me get outta here
If you won’t come, I can’t take the fall
Leave me, stay outta there
Save yourself, I will take it all
Track Name: The Lightness Of Being
As we’re laying here across, take the moment let sunshine in…
While the world turns round and round
Feel the safety of the charm within

Sometimes I know about it, sometimes I feel about it,
Sometimes I summon a fire and start to scream and shout it
Sometimes I wonder ’bout it, sometimes I’m calm without it,
Sometimes I trust you with a glimpse of eyes which stare aloud on it

Sometimes I know about it, sometimes I feel about it,
Sometimes I summon a fire and start to scream and shout it
Sometimes I wonder ’bout it, sometimes I’m calm without it,
Sometimes I trust you with a glimpse of eyes that stare aloud on…

While we’re laying here across, is there a moment?
Let sunshine in…
The world, me and you…
Is it love, enlightening more?
Is it just that kind that turns you to stay, or (turns you) away…

Sometimes I know about it, sometimes I feel about it,
Sometimes I summon a fire and start to scream and shout it
Sometimes I wonder ’bout it, sometimes I’m calm without it,
Sometimes I trust you, but I don’t have to forget about it

Sometimes I know about it, sometimes I feel about it,
Sometimes I summon a fire to again embrace the loudness
Sometimes I wonder ’bout it, sometimes I’m calm without it,
Sometimes I know you with a glimpse of eyes that stare aloud on…
Track Name: The Sun & The Moon
You’re feeling lonely and paralysed
And still your tears fill seas of erased delight
(What) if you asked the moon, at the end of the day
When the passion’s gone, left memories of an era he would say

It was the sun and the moon who calmed your cries
In an endless circle, never touch, never despair
They were the sun and the moon, who dried your eyes
Most has gone with the wind above (clouds and) hours passing by…

Tick, tick, tock…
Tick, tick, tock…

Some came with scars all around, some came to hide
Some searching for glory, and some with hopeful eyes
(What) if you asked the moon, at the end of the day
When the passion’s gone, left memories of an era, he would say

It was the sun and the moon who calmed your cries
In an endless circle, never touch, never despair
They were the sun and the moon, who dried your eyes
Most has gone with the wind above hills and mountains passing by…
Track Name: Exposing The Shadow
Lurking nearby, drowning your last hope when you’re down with your pride
He offers you candy, tells you to shit on the world, dreams and tries
And he says: “I’ll make you a hero, a dark knight, no weirdo, a god, if you like.
And everyone will love you, and everyone will despair and those who hate you burn alive!”

And you’re so amazed, you’re so amazed of his power
And you’re so impressed, you’re so impressed of his shower
He offers you love, if you know what it means
Introducing himself, as your only friend he’ll be

Lurking nearby, drowning your last hope, repulsed agony
Fed with the ladies, make ’em submissive, a great authority
And he says:” I’ll make you a hero, a dark knight, no weirdo, a god, you’ll be.
And everyone will love you, and everyone will despair and those who hate you burn for me!”

And you’re so impressed, you’re so impressed of his power
And you’re so afraid, you’re so afraid of his shower
He offers you love, but you still know what it means
Unveiling the cause, still no cause to agree

I know him well
He knows me well
He knows me well
I know him well
Track Name: Impressing The Wind
Free like a bird
Impressing the wind, beholding graze without declines
No sickened ties, Karmacoma and those dead philosophers
No rumoured lies, with their thousand strings and caused catastrophes
Bound to a rhyme…
No one steady, cruel or satisfied

Free like a bird
Impressing the wind, beholding graze without declines
No sickened ties, but elegance and those dead philosophers
No rumoured lies, with their thousand strings and caused catastrophes
Bound to a rhyme…
No one steady, cruel or satisfied

Free like a bird
Impressing the wind, beholding graze without declines
Bound to a rhyme…
No one steady, cruel or satisfied…
Track Name: Window Of Opportunity
Started long ago, not sure why nor how
The cause is well unknown, after centuries it’s gone
No fear to express, no remorse, just pain
With all the reason gone, violence is all they gain

Cursed to fight themselves, not a single pause
A gruesome fate to live, no respect for life at all
Sons and daughters born, just to keep alive
The anger and their feud, fueling hate is what they do

All the blood they shed, the dreams they never had
It’s a nightmare all along, wake up and be strong

~Wake up, wake up,
wake up, wake up!~

Pick up your weapon, it’s time to defend your life, defend your love
~No, no, no~
The circle of violence won’t swallow you fast enough – not fast enough
~No, no, no~
It’s a nightmare all along
~Wake up! Wake up!~
Track Name: The Golden Age Of Our Demise
They’re gonna make things to supply
Made me feel so rotten, it’s not helpful, it’s awry
Look what I’ve forgotten

They’re gonna make us to depend
And call it glory
The golden age of our demise
Sometimes – never!

Our ruins soon to be (set us free)
Will we ever set us free

They feed me salt and suck me dry
And praise my approval
Another bite, another try
It tastes less pleasant

We shall feed it to the world
And spread their message
Selling all my selfesteem
This time – never!

Our ruins soon to be (set us free)
Will we ever set us free
Track Name: Farewell To Starlight
So long I’ve been waiting since I was crushing
Down on the ground through the blazin’ of storms
Strong hands pulled me up, those friendly faces,
It seems they’ve faded to ashes after losin’ their hope
Weak or insane, desperate or vain,
Cruel intentions grow like grass on a plane
And strong like an oak tree I remain here, to sing for better days

Oh my, my, singin’ for the starlight, there’s nothing on the fairground,
For I would pay my fee, like hate and more brutality
My, my, singin’ for the starlight, is there’s something on the fairground,
For I would pay my fee

So tight I’ve defended all I’ve been praying
For like hope and glory and everyone’s joy
If joy is a word with several meanings
I’m dismayed by those and their sickening souls
Weak or insane, desperate or vain,
Shattered hearts grow like grass on a plane
And strong like an oak tree I remain here, to sing for better days

Oh my, my, singin’ for the starlight, there’s nothing on the fairground,
For I would pay my fee, like hate and more brutality
Bye, bye, leaving into starlight, there’s nothing on the fairground
For I would pay my fee, like hate and more brutality

La la, lalalalalaa laa, lalalalalaa laa, lalalalalaaa…
