Biography

Become the Sun is a Canadian rock quartet that delivers a classic alternative sound with modern flair. Their debut release, Fire, demonstrates their ability to craft songs that transcend genres, yet keep the signature energy that set them apart.

The band is a mixture of eclectic personalities and a blend of cultures, ranging from the Canadian born rhythm section of Evan and Matt to the Sri-Lankan front man Theepan.

The band’s career was almost cut short in June 2008 when drummer Evan accidentally severed his left wrist while working construction. The injury was severe; he severed 12 tendons, both arteries and a major nerve. He faced the real prospect of never being able to play drums again. After emergency reattachment microsurgery and months of rehabilitation, Evan began play again with a greater passion than ever before.

The band plans on releasing a new album for every natural element every 4 months. Fire is available February 25th, 2011.

Lyrics

Maya

Written By: Theepan

Wake me up from this dream I swear I’m sane
Then lift me up to the clouds
To see if I’ll hit the ground
And shatter my chains

I’m holding on to my soul
And I’m not letting go
Forever I’ll wait

I can see now slowly the world is turning
But I am standing still
Visions of Maya as she looks at me
As if I was ill

I’m sick to my stomach and I don’t know why
Must be the darkness so
Bathe me into some light
So I won’t explode
And splatter my brains
Infinite soul
Forever awake

I can see now slowly the world is turning
But I am standing still
Visions of Maya as she looks at me
As if I was ill

Seeds Of Freedom

Written By: Theepan

There is a place where we all belong
It lives inside this song
A life full of love, peace and happiness
In birth these were our gifts

Dreamers die but their dreams live on
In the hearts of all who evolve

Dream big while
The universe looks on you and smiles
Smiles with love
Freedom in the air
Dare without a fear or care and fly
The sky is yours

Creation in a dream
The thoughts we have our seeds
Plant and watch them grow
Our seeds of freedom

Whispers in the wind
Changes that will shift the dark to light
The time has come
Excitement in the air
Laughter everywhere the joys of life
For us to hold

Creation in a dream
The thoughts we have our seeds
Plant and watch them grow
Our seeds of freedom

There is a place where we all belong
It lives inside this song

Enigma

Written By: Theepan

I’m thinking...

Existence in the flesh
Dogmatic epithets
Express your alphabet

Add one subtract a hole
Divide to take control then
Multiply and hoard

I’m thinking...

Treadmill of sustenance
Shoes tied back on again
Tread of my soul’s worn thin

Proselytize the eyes
The blind lead on the blind
Bah bah have you any wool?

I’m feeling...

Step away from the wall expand what’s seen
An enigma slowly unravelling
To reveal a new beginning

The truth within will be the key to set us free
With open arms embracing our divinity

Ocean Of One

Written By: Theepan

Choose your religion
Instead of the world
Side with your country
Wonder what we’ll do then
In a world with no peace or harmony

We could fight, war and cause discord
Parade our wealth to all but inside still feel poor
I thought love was all about letting go
To connect

Connect back to our Source

Why do we go and kill ourselves?
They say we’ve advanced from our past
Well I sure can’t tell
I heard our Moon saying to the Sun
That we’re all rivers leading to an ocean of One

So we could fight, war and cause discord
Maybe the Moon and the Sun have seen this all before
Maybe love is the answer we’re all searching for
To connect
Connect back to our Source

I don’t care where you’re from
Your race or religion
I just care that you’re human

I don’t care if you’re pretty or poor
Don’t care how much you own
I just care that you’re human

I don’t care if you’re gay or sad
Don’t care for status or class
I just care that you’re human

Not much different you and I
View the world through a pair of eyes
Guess we’re all just human

One day we will stop these wars
Before the day we kill us all
I just care because I’m human

No more polluted skies
Exuding positive vibes
Transforming life under the sun

A Shift In Frequency

Written By: Theepan

If the world comes crashing down
I will be there for you love
And though you might not see that now
Everywhere there’s probability

Probability...

When will we begin cherishing our world
In a moment we could make this change
Ending senseless greed
Replacing war with peace
Choosing consciously what we wish to see

So let us make a shift right now
Throw away our fears
Elevate new waves of love

Imagine what we’d be
Spirits living free
Working together harmoniously
This moment we must know
For it’s the feeling in our souls
Opening up to explore

So let us make a shift right now
Throw away our fears
Elevate new waves of love

Can you hear the voices screaming?
When will we wake up?

Feel the shift happening now
Throw away our fears
Elevate new waves of love

If the world comes crashing down
I will be there for you love
And though you might not see that now
Resonate to find our sound
Centered with pure frequency
Vibrate till we shift the clouds
Aligned with our destiny

On My Way

Written By: Theepan


Pardon stranger
I’m just looking for a ride
Follow that bird
Do you see her in the sky?

Wait
What’d you say?
You’re headed nowhere
Well then I’m on my way

Hold up here girl
Let me see what’s in your mind
Sex and sugar
Won’t always feed this appetite

Wait
What’d you say?
You’re headed nowhere
Well then I’m on my way

Sometimes the path gets lonely
As I tread this path I’ve sown
Sometimes there’s silence and that silence only grows
I’m not complaining because the wise man said one day I’d know
That in order to create and make room for the new
That I’d have to let go of the old

Wait
What’d you say?
You’re headed nowhere
Well then I’m on my way

I’m on my way now
I’m on my way and this feels right

I’m on my way now
Leaving my old world far behind

I’m on my way now
I’m on my way and this feels right

I’m on my way now
I’m on my way and this feels right
