about

The Soles Toronto, Ontario

"Sand in the Sun is strong melodically and instrumentally, if not lyrically. Gives the listener a feeling one might have on the brink of something new and exciting." EXCLAIM!


"With melodic sensibility, driven by strong grooves and earnest lyrics, The Soles are back! Cementing a fine slab of Alterna-rock to the masses"

Track Name: Where We All Go
Where We All Go

The sky explodes, where do you go?
There’s nowhere to run, sand and star are one
Is there a place where we all go?
Is there a place everybody knows?
We’re mountains with rivers in between
And underneath the ice you and I will meet
If the world would come, where would you want to go?
Would hide out in the clouds, or would you be the sun that broke?
Is there a place where we all go?
Is there a place everybody knows?
Is there a place where we all go?
Is there a place everybody knows?
Track Name: Sand In The Sun
Sand In The Sun

When you call will I come?
I’m walking the town
On the run
When I needed space
You kicked me out
All I think and feel
You hear me shout
We’re all sand in the sun
We all forget who we are
I will remember
We’re all here for each other
And what we believe
Will always come
All I think is all I see
All I believe
Is done to me
The mountains will move
For everyone
When we raise our hands
And drop our guns
We’re all sand in the sun
We all forget who we are
I will remember
We’re all here for each other
And what we believe
Will always come
Track Name: Who You Really Are
Who You Really Are

I turned out the lights
I didn't think that they were luminous
And you said,
"Why am I always trying to ruin this?”
We're drawing circles in the sand
we come back to where we began
Sing a new song of celebration
you've been gone so long
Have you found who your really are?
Who you really are
She said, "I'm on the edge
got nothing to reach for
Nothing to leap for"
Well you can jump
but you'll be grabbing air
If you don't care
You’re drawing circles in the sand
You come back to where you began
Sing a new song of celebration
You’ve been gone so long
Have you found who your really are?
Who you really are
At the shoreline
Ready to go
At the shoreline
You wanted to know
You’re walking circles around the sun
you come back to where you were born
Sing a new song of celebration
You've been gone so long
Have you found who your really are?
Who you really are
Track Name: Shadows Of June
Shadows of June

The storm was calm and constant
In its lightlessness at day
In the beginning of June
Where the spring won’t go away
I heard you in the gloaming
Through your terror and your fright
A friend in the dark
Not just the candles in the night
Oh this beautiful darkness, It grows
Hearts are shocked by trauma
Into love's first fight or flight
The moon washed over you
Like my hands did in its light
Outside was revolution
Thousands running through the streets
Newspapers strewn with blood and rain
And the dirt from countless feet
I want to change the world too, but you are changing me
Inside is evolution, you can’t give what you can’t be
Oh this beautiful darkness, It grows
Oh this beautiful darkness, let it go
Oh this beautiful darkness in the shadow of the sun
There comes a moment where it might break
Because it always does
Oh this beautiful darkness in the shadow of the sun
There comes a moment where we might break
Or we might run
Oh this beautiful darkness in the shadow of the sun
There comes a moment where it might break
Because it always does
Oh this beautiful darkness in the shadow of the sun
There comes a moment where we might break
Or we might bend
Track Name: F35
F35

He don’t want to talk to media, he don’t want to give you what you got
They say he likes to play the piano, but he’ll ban this song from all our radio
He got religion on his right arm, no patience for the left
On his mind he’s got a think tank, in his heart he wants a fight, F35
He shut down the government so we don’t get none of it
He don’t do anything just for the fun of it
He don’t like environment, he’ll say where the money spent
Got a few billion, jets for some killing, F35
He don’t want to talk to media, he don’t want to give you what you got
They say he likes to play the piano, but he’ll ban this song from all our radio
He’s got some friends who like to sell arms and in the Federal Reserve
He’s got some friends who make the big stars, just don’t speak or you’ll get burned, F35
He shut down the government so we don’t get none of it
He don’t do anything just for the fun of it, he don’t like First Nations
He’ll say where the money spent, got a few billion, jets for some killing, F35
Track Name: Emergency
Emergency

See the lights go out
Feel the wounds all over your body
Hear the storm outside
The wind crash through in the room
Sometimes you don’t feel like life could get better
Sometimes you’re so broken
You don’t think that you can be fixed
Your eyes are lights
But they’re as dark as the sky
When you fall asleep
You’re there again in the fight
The storm comes down and
Your dreams hit you like the rain
Here comes the dawn
Now you and the sun are the same
For once I’m not going to give up
For once I’ve found what I’ve got to do
For once I know that you’re going to get there
Because when you can’t walk
I’ll be there carrying you
I dropped you off at emergency
I stayed a while then I had to go and sing
A song about us
See a tiny flower standing up to the thunder
See a heavy cloud gently fall like a heart
The trees are down but you’re
Standing in the morning daylight
No one can tell that you’ve been to hell and back
For once I’m not going to give up
For once I’ve found what I’ve got to do
For once I know that you’re going to get there
Because when you can’t walk
I’ll be there carrying you
I dropped you off at emergency
Track Name: Newest Revelation
Newest Revelation

There is no one, no being anywhere
You’re not apart from
You are here but you’re not mine
In space and time
What’s good for you is good for everyone
When we are one
And what’s good for all is good for you
So good for you
I am here I hear your words
Voice of love in all us here on Earth
You are the newest revelation
The spirit moves in every moment
You said this song won’t change anyone’s life
Well it changed mine, it changed mine
You and I will breathe each other’s air
And so will the tress
Love will always be a bridge in between
I am here and I hear your words
Voice of love in all us here on Earth
You are the newest revelation
You spirit moves in every moment
Everyone is gone
But I am here I hear your words
Voice of love in all us here on Earth
You are the newest revelation
Our spirit moves in every moment
Track Name: Echo Bay
Echo Bay

I want to sing an honest song
I’ve been gone for so long
Put my feet upon a stone
Set my soul free to find a home
Singing something across the way
I found my life on Echo Bay, on Echo Bay
Help me see now, help me believe
My mind is racing with no relief
I was sleeping, now I’m awake
Found my life on Echo Bay, on Echo Bay
If I return will you wait?
My wings are burnt but I found a way
When we return, we’re changed, change
I heard you calling
Track Name: Whisper
Whisper

What are you going to say?
To make me go away?
All our crops are skinned and burnt
I don’t know when they’ll return
Can you plant a fear in my soul?
So you can take what you can’t control?
Will you call us your dearest kin?
So you can take what you can’t win?
Then the lie comes
With naught but a whisper in the night
We made the myth of limited
Then everyone fights for it
No armies, no nations
Will free up a three hundred trillion
Dollars for all basic needs
Education, homes and seeds
Then there’ll be no more Reserves
Every land one on earth
You come at them with a gun in your hands
Said you’re “gonna to take it all”
Going to take their land
You don’t care about them
They’re wrong, you’re right
Gonna carry your raid out at night
And then your crew got the scurvy
So you prayed to God and you prayed to Mary
And I sent my sons with an elixir
Said “Gonna heal all of your crew Mr.”
Because your boat got caught up in
The ice off the coast of the New Land
But you lied to me, you lied to me
And then the lie comes
With naught but a whisper in the night
Track Name: Over The Wall
Over The Wall

Oh my God, Jehovah and Allah
If I could let it go I would
I would if I could and I should I know
Like the Dhammapada said
What'd ya say? What'd ya say?
Walking the bare streets with your dirty feet
It’s the dirty things people say
It don’t phase me at all, at all
She said, "Life is another word for God"
Who’s sing, who’s singing along?
Whoa-oh, over the wall
You are me and I am you
Everything we do will run through
Run through and through
On the bloody streets with your dirty feet
It’s the dirty things people say
It don’t phase me at all, at all
She said, "Life is another word for God"
Who’s sing, who’s singing along?
Whoa-oh, over the wall
If Life was God
You couldn’t kill Life
In God’s name
In Her name
In His name
In Our name
Whoa-oh, over the wall
Track Name: The Unknown
The Unknown

Midday, our sisters and brothers gone
Can you see them walking into the sun?
Now you’re just sitting there beside
The tomb of the unknown
Hope you’re putting yourself together in
The dark night of your soul
In the wind you hear a mother’s cry
The rain falls on everyone
With tears inside
Now you’re just sitting there beside
The tomb of the unknown
Hope you’re putting yourself together in
The dark night of your soul
We’re all just searching for something
Can never let it go
And you are only asking, “Why?”
At the tomb of the unkown
Where have all their sisters gone?
Have they been forgotten?
Where did all our brothers fall?
And will we ever remember?
Now you’re just sitting there beside
The tomb of the unknown
Hope you’re putting yourself together in
The dark night of your soul
We’re all just searching for something
Can never let it go
And you are only asking, “Why?”
At the tomb of the unkown
They said there was nothing wrong
Even though they’re gone
