The ninth track of the Rainbow's End album by Hollow Water

lyrics

Solar Beacon
By Alan Cookson Hollow Water 2015

CHORUS: Solar Beacon it's not a rainbow,A Solar Beacon, Solar Beacon it's not a rainbow ,A Solar Beacon .

Inside the solar beacon it’s not quite the same
,We’re in a different dimension all looks singed by flame,
Colours are different from what we knew,
And everything has an altered hue.

CHORUS

Inside the solar beacon like we’re in a sepia film,
We’re in a new dimension earth’s colour leached from our skin.
Simple torches become flares.
Laser pointers cut holes like tears.

CHORUS

Inside the solar beacon bronze light is all we see,
We’re in a new dimension no blue red yellow green
Phones screen light can mesmerise
Watches dull glow does hypnotize

CHORUS

Inside the solar beacon no primary light exists,
We’re in a new dimension just brown all round persists
But our lights go dim.
No power goes in. No battery charge facility……….

CHORUS
