Terra Sola 11:35
I learned to take advantage Of your generosity Still you granted more More than I ever deserved Mitigate the damage Received no apology Sinking heat absorb My world undisturbed Let alone cries the wind So loud, let it sit still Deaf in tone, blind to light So poor, who speaks for you? Dust came and went Waves bound our mouths Rust in our eyes The flood, the shame Hold me down under the wave The word of god in rain The mold, the haze The light, the smell, the stain My life in debris The trust, the joy, the pain The crow, the prey The now, and then, the way Your time in decay When the air that we breathe is so thick with the shame We expire

Won't slow down Ever ready, it turns round Gaining speed Descending upward, unyielding There's no sleep No solace waiting in this heat Distraction leads, becomes the object of intrigue Every minute faster than the one before Machine is burning hotter, still demanding more It knows no end Perpetual motion moves ever on Refuses to concede the design may be flawed Can't comprehend

about

After completing an incredible 2-year, 36-country, 200-show touring cycle in support of UTOPIOID, Rosetta returns with a new EP: TERRA SOLA. Breathing more freely outside the structure of an album, the title track layers a multitude of moods, its cinematic sweep hearkening back to Rosetta deep cuts like "TMA-3" and "So Warm a Solitude." At the same time, it explores new textures and new conceptual ground, connecting the human themes of Utopioid with questions about the future of the planet and our people on it.

TERRA SOLA also features two brand-new 'chamber' tracks, connected in concept but showcasing the quieter and more intimate sonic incarnation of Rosetta. "57844" mines the harmonic structures of UTOPIOID's "54543" for new sounds and meanings, while the instrumental "Where Is Hope?" merges gentle acoustic guitar and lo-fi electronica, rare sounds in the Rosetta catalog.

As always, this is a completely independent, pay-what-you-wish release.
