Circa Survive - Only The Sun Lyrics



Break it in half, all the entrances are false
Are false and boarded up into itself
Making a noose out of everything you use
You use everyone directly out of sight

Will you evaluate my art?
(I'm afraid if I don't we will never know)
I don't know if I can
(Ohhh)

Turn this away, censor every word I say
I say nothing but this lie that I believe
And I wasn't there, but I felt the weight you bear
Buried all, on top, the energy we create

There's a strain, on the eye
When you stand way too close to what we want

Will you evaluate my art?
(I'm afraid if I don't, we will never know)
I don't know if I can
(I'm afraid if I don't, we will never go)
By the time it's finished tearing us apart
(I can't see anything out your window)
Will you get what you want?

I feel it in the air
(I know a way out)
I know it's in there
(I won't leave you there)

Know it's just a part of me you can not see
It's just an antiquated position
Know it's just a side of me you can not treat
Take it as a compliment you were left out

Let's just keep calling me absent
It's just an antiquated position
(You know) It's just a silent need for action
Take it as a compliment you were left out

Circa Survive Only The Sun Comments
  1. Josh Heath

    I really wanna watch this on shrooms again.

  2. Matthew Forbes

    that mysterious hook-riff always reminds me of the theme music for The Saint.

  3. Matthew Forbes

    Circa introduced the concept of shamanism or healing or spirt travel thru their work. that's where I first noticed it. then I went back to the old music and it all made sense.

  4. MR.223rem

    My top favorite song out of this album(love the whole thing)

  5. Marius Brueckner

    Does anybody else has the feeling these guys are into drugs?

  6. Robert Trice

    Tool/Circa = trippy smooth to the soul. Great song to get baked to.

  7. change is good

    Beautiful

  13. Atticah

  14. William Ross

    Anthony Green is a truly musician the vibes are real - thanks for sharing brother!

  15. Shawn Smith

    Break it in half all the entrances are false
    All are false and boarded up into themselves
    Making a noose out of everything you use, you use everyone
    Directly out of sight

    Will you evaluate my art?
    (I'm afraid if I don't then we'll never know)
    I don't know if I can

    Turn this away, censor every word I say
    I say nothing but this lie that I believe
    I wasn't there but I felt the weight you bear
    Buried it all on top the energy we create

    There's a strain on the eye
    When you stand way too close to what we want

    Will you evaluate my art?
    (I'm afraid if I don't then we'll never know)
    I don't know if I can
    (I'm aware if I don't we will never go)
    By the time it's finished tearing us apart
    Would you get what you want?

    I feel it in the air (I know a way out)
    I know it's in there (I won't leave you here)Know it's just a part of me you can not see
    It's just an antiquated position
    Know it's just a side of me you can not treat
    Take it is a compliment you were left out

  16. lFAAmous

    this song makes me cry. my dog passed away in april, and this whole record was playing while she was dying next to me in her final week of being alive. so now I'm trying to listen to it so it doesn't remind me of such a hard time in life

  17. Mike LsDrummer1

    that bass line

  18. Hansol

    Weird to say, but this is my most played Circa song.

  19. Jenny Canfield

    Wizzin My Pance

    +Catherine Coronado If you havent heard of Circa before than just listen to their first two albums "Juturna" and "On Letting Go"

    Brandon Sims

    Agreed. just listen to every album begining to end and you'll have enough material to last 10 years.

    BOMBheadDOM

    Catherine Coronado circa survive

    "The Only Sun"

    Dragon Warrior

  30. Papi_ ChampagneOvoXO

    I want see this song fucking live

    Eddie Garcia

    I remember being one of the only people freaking out when they started to play this live. it was perfect

    Andretii

    +Eddie Garcia Watched it live in palatine, IL. Fantastic trip. And awesome live performance.

    Teal C

    +claudius martinez I did in Paris, it was outstandingly amazing

    Alex Millan

    It's fucking amazing I watched them live in Omaha Nebraska

  33. Juanita Salinas

    my love ♥

  34. Ezequiel Gabriel

    why do i feel like this is going to get picked up by a Resident Evil movie?

  35. Kevin Laird

    I don't always listen to Circa Survive, but when I do, I absolutely trip balls.. And go soaring through the fucking heavens

    Lost paradox

    I'm hip!

  36. subie-ja

    One word, AMAZING!

  37. Cali cutthroat

    I've been a circa fan for years and wow this is one of my favorite song by them definitely. ✔

  38. Chris Goodwin

    This song is best seen live! loved them when they came to Birmingham academy! the whole room was pumping! get back to the UK guys! this was my favourite song by far on the night! :)

  39. Daniel Agu

    I just feel so much warmth in this song! No wonder it has the title 'Only the Sun'. Love it!

  40. Gary Stephens

    I fucking love the visuals from the video, it is definitely  inspired  from tool.

    Hayden Haug

    @Gary Stephens That's not necessarily a guarantee...

    Redbeard Metalviking

    +Gary Stephens Not getting a Tool vibe from this.

    Cameron Brwdway

    +Gary Stephens
    Fucking Tool fanatics dude. I suspect you're all juggalos and should be flushed down the earths toilet.

  41. S Kirkwood

    Having not listened to Circa Survive since 'On Letting Go'

    I can safely say they sound exactly the same. Any of these tracks could have been on the first two albums.

    I don't know if that's a good thing?

    childofbhaal

    I don't see the relation from this song to OLG. This is really prog and space rockish while OLG was more post hardcore with intricate guitar patterns.

  42. Alex Newsome

    this makes my soul so happy

  43. James Best

    The end of the is the best part of the whole album. Anthony singing backup and lead at the same time 🙌🙌🙌🙌

  44. Santos Chavez

    This song is so catchy, one of my favs along with nesting dolls and child of the desert ;)

  45. Mario Jimenez

    ts the meaning of the song ?

  46. Dave Masse

    Listened to these guys for a longtime

  47. Trace Etherton

    that worm thing grosses me the hell out

  48. Rex raptor

    1:44-2:00 theres a persons face in a bubble drifting down on the left side of the screen

  49. Kenton B.

    Such a good song. 3:14. Oof. So good.

  50. pancakedrool

    This album is so heavy and emotional, and it's so brilliant and beautiful. Gives me goosebumps every time.

  51. J J

    I'm all about dat bass.

  52. Tyrantax

    Deftones is that you?

  53. blackoddio

    Breaking in, all the answers I've lost

    All of... More than efforts here you sat

    Making a noose out of everything you use

    You use everyone directly out of sight


    When you don't have to make my eye

    (I'm afraid of the day it will never come)

    I don't know if I can


    Turn this away, censor every word I say

    I shed nothing but this lie when I believe

    Not long to there, but I can't go where you've been

    Buried all on top the energy we create


    There's a strain on my eye

    When you're standing too close to what you want


    When you don't have to make my eye

    (I'm afraid of the day it will never come)

    I don't know if I can

    (I'm afraid of the day it will never come)

    By the time this dream is tearing us apart

    When you get what you want

  54. Johnny Varelas

    holy shit...that build up, and when anthony cries the first "I feel it in the air".  Sends chills down my spine.

  55. TrebuL

    The video reminds me of the Animals as Leaders - "Lippincott" video, lol.

    closertothelung

    Ire Works, respect!

    Pinnecks

    +closertothelung agreed

  56. RusoTube

    The best song on the album.

  57. blk chinaski

    New James Bond movie credits music

  58. DEAD SUN (FKA OCEANS ABIDE)

    For fans of circa, please check us out! We promise you won't be disappointed

  59. Charlie Cairns

    I'm not gonna lie I didn't really like the new album which sucks cause this band are so good and fucking this song. It's just perfect.

  60. ShaRMz6g

    Circa survive, the faceless, animals as leaders... Truly progressive bands the only ones I like on this label too, coincidence?

    TrebuL

    Sumerian has signed some of my favorite bands in the past 2 years including Circa and AAL. Check out The Dillinger Escape Plan and Crosses.

  61. Christo

    Circa Survive saves the day.

  62. Marco Alvarez

    This album was one of they're best in my opinion the creativity is amazing unlike they're last album which I didnt hate but I didn't love it I thought they were on they're way down but this album saved it awsome all around

  63. jo bee

    I've been a circa fan for 6 years, the new album exceeded expectations. Were so lucky to have younger musicians with this amount of heart and soul.

    Cali cutthroat

    wow right they killed this album just like all the old ones

  64. david entendu

    Do you understand how fucking amazing that bass guitar riff in he verses is?! Dude.

  65. Zeiky008

    Anthony should do some demos with the singer from Hail the Sun. JUST THINK ABOUT IT

  66. Zachary Augustine

    can we PLEASE get all of the visuals you guys projected during the Descensus tour on some kind of DVD or something?

  67. Dionté Wilkens

    wonderful

  68. Timmy Cates

    I think the video is gross but I like the song

  69. thuya rahmadya

    Somewhere out there, i feel there are people who make circa survives' kind of music as a cult

  70. EvilMonstar12

    This reminds me of old Circa so much!!!.  But with a specific type of polish to it.  Fuckin fantastic!

    Christo

    Mostly, the difference is with Anthony's developed voice. His range is fucking incredible now.

  71. THEADMINwashere

    the balance is always horrible with this band. It just sounds like an assault of sound. The Mars Volta manage to balance just as many instrument s while preserving clarity.
    Time to sack the production crew

    THEADMINwashere

    @childofbhaal  Cedric only has a terrible voice live. The magic of editing makes him sound good.

    Mario Ink

    @childofbhaal well Amputechture was probably their climax, deloused was just the beginning.

    jigyoda

    @TheAdmin0001
    that means he has a terrible voice period

    fuzzy pickles

    what the fuck are u even sayin

    Christo

    I agree with Emmanuel

  72. Gergely Both

    Rishloo anyone?

  73. atom_jack

    INSANE!

  74. Ryan Byrne

    This band is entering a new realm of respectability with this record. Welcome to the Dark Side of the Moon, Circa Survive.

  75. Jack O'Meara

    That pre-chorus tho.

  76. Super99Sport

    I love this song more and more each time I listen to it.

  77. Samuel Carlson

    So the flames on the visual around 1:29 remind me of Majora's Mask, and with the sphere descending it's kinda like the moon in the game. kinda eerie man.. haha no but it does look a lot like the outline of the mask.

    horizoniki

    Came here to say exactly the same thing.

    Samuel Carlson

    hahahahahaha

    Drai Beveridge

    y'all are smoking weed. clearly. lol

    Scuba Steve

    It’s actually Mercury. The shape that the discharge makes coming from the top of the cosmic body forms it’s Alchemical symbol. Metal and Prog. Rock are both very heavily influenced by esotericism; not much goes into production without also being carefully crafted to possess a deeper meaning for the dedicated consumer.

  78. vinny vinny

    There's a strain, on the eye
    When you stand way too close to what we want

  79. World Time Line Channel

    Great video production value.

  80. Allan Villar

    been listening to circa since 2009

    ..and i gotta say ;;; icant find anything like this

  81. freesoul television

    1:16 sperm cell?Lmao

  82. Jonny Cap

    That guitar lick is chilling/awesome!

  83. mixedmartin

    Everything about this song is beautiful. Such a great feel.

  84. Ardes

    *[Official Album Cover Lyrics]*
    Break it in half, all the entrances are false
    All are false and boarded up into themselves
    Making a noose out of everything you use,
    You use everyone directly out of sight

    Will you evaluate my art?
    (I'm afraid if I don't, then we'll never know)
    I don't know if I can

    Turn this away, sensor* every word I say
    I say nothing but the lie that I believe
    I wasn't there, but I felt the weight you bare
    Buried all on top of energy we create

    [[not included in official lyrics]]
    [There's a strain on the eye
    When you stare way too close to everyone]

    Will you evaluate my art?
    (I'm afraid if I don't, then we'll never know)
    I don't know if I can
    (I'm aware if we don't, we will never go)
    By the time it's finished tearing us apart,
    (I can't see anything out your window)
    Would you get what you want?

    I feel it in the air (I know a way out)
    I know it's in there (I won't leave you here)

    Know it's just a part of me you can not see
    It's just an antiquated position
    Know it's just a part of me you can't treat
    Take it as a compliment you were left out

    *While I think "sensor" should be censor, "sensor" is what is what Anthony wrote in the official lyrics.

    Ray Kon

    It's really surreal how you can listen so many times and swear you hear it right, then again and again and it's different every time. Circa never dissapoints lol

    hotandready100

    He says " Will you evaluate my eye"

    Ardes

    @hotandready100 Incorrect. In the official lyrics book that comes with the album, the line is "...evaluate my art". I'm assuming you haven't checked it yet.

    Ray Kon

    @***** maybe he meant for it to sound that way, who knows AG is a weird guy

    Ardes

    @***** Yeah, if I hadn't read the lyrics in the album booklet, I never would have thought it was "art" since it sounds so much like "eye." 

  85. Jordan Kanner

    i cant stop listening to this song...

  86. Stephanie Baker

    It sounds more like hes saying "will you evaluate my eye I dont know if I can" ....not "when you dont have to meet my eye I dont know if I can". Lyrics online are fucking with me.

    MigratingPig

    Officially, he says:

    Will you evaluate my art?
    (I'm afraid if I don't, then we'll never know)
    I don't know if I can

    Stephanie Baker

    I was so so close lol ive listened to this song on repeat for so long trying to figure out the real lyrics. Where did you find the official lyrics?

    MigratingPig

    People have posted them. They are on the CD and Vinyl, some people got it early.

    atom_jack

    Ya it sounds like Anthonys visiting an eye doctor haha

    Cristian R. Larrocha

    Reminds me of the "I'm buried in your clothes" line from Suitcase. I think he's just hard to understand sometimes, but somehow the incorrect lyrics make more sense, haha.

  87. Christian Henriquez

    Sounds like something from Mars Volta

  88. Hung Ton

    this speaks to me as more classic circa compared to the other tracks, although im only 5 tracks into this album, if my opinion changes ill come back. digging the entire album overall though!

  89. OSONEGRO IS DA BESS CHICKEN EATA IN DA WESSS

    This album is going to be brilliant. Hopefully I can buy it on release :D

  90. Daniel DeMayo

    Weird i sense a little bit of animals as leaders in here

  91. Today We Die

    Hey guys we are a just starting deathcore band, Today We Die, and we would like some feedback. We don't have any good quality material out right now but our EP drops late December, early January. It would  mean a lot if you were to check out the videos we have currently and let us know what you think and what we can do to make it better. Also give our facebook page a like. Thanks to the people that check us out, it means a lot!

  92. Chris D

    BTW, this song is pretty close to perfect. The Juturna/OLG vibes blended with the progressive rock in BSN. Juturna like vocals too (besides production, which is perfect)

  93. Elizabeth Scoggins

    Believe in science AND Jesus!

  94. ilovegreensukkas

    Loved it day one and I cannot stop listening, I cannot wait until the 24th and the 25th!!! 

  95. Stephanie Baker

    I just fell in love agh circa survive knows how to capture a heart so very deeply.
