about

The first official release, debut EP of Arora. Stop and Watch gives you a taste of the variety this band is capable of. with soaring vocals, killer kit work with grooves all day, big booty bass, roaring organ and gobsmacking guitar, you won't be able to help yourself by the second chorus, you'll be singing on the way to work, the way home and all the way to the show.

Look out for them around Melbourne and check out the shows. If you think these tunes are good just wait until you see the live show, not to be missed.

Track Name: Stop & Watch
This all started out the wrong way
I say we never had a chance from the start
You say it's not the way you planned it
You don't understand it baby it's not that hard

It's all about communication and determination
Learning to listen to what others say
You want an explanation I'll give you an education
In how to make something unbreakable break

I stop... and watch it slowly die
I stand... as the answers pass me by
Sit still... and don't even begin to try
And all... that's left is to wonder why

Wonder why...
Wonder why...

I say that harmony is much easier
Done than said... done than said
It takes hard work, not just words to
Bring it back from the dead

It's all about how you handle frustration
Learning to be patient when the world is against you
If you can forgive and forget and learn not to regret
But if you want to give up here's what you can do

You stop... and watch it slowly die
You stand... as the answers pass me by
Sit still... and don't even begin to try
And all... that's left is to wonder why

Stop and watch it die
Let the answers pass you by
Sit still and don't try
All that's left is to wonder why you...

You stop... and watch it slowly die
You stand... as the answers pass me by
Sit still... and don't even begin to try
And all... that's left is to wonder why

Stop and watch it die...
Track Name: The World As You Know It
Somedays you find the light somedays the light finds you
I know I better be ready no matter who finds who
Belief is more powerful than man or myth
It is the reason half the world is buried neck deep in shit

Can no-one see the only thing they should believe
Is to love someone as they love you

I don't wanna say it
I don't wanna be it
I don't wanna hear it
I don't wanna see it
Close your eyes and ears and keep your voice down low
Let the world as you know it go

Let it go

Someday you'll find the answer or it'll find you
I keep my lips sealed, eyes peeled looking for the right path to choose
I take a step and before I get a chance
I see the end slipping like water running through my hands

Can no-one see what I see?
The disintegration of the masterplan

I don't wanna say it
I don't wanna be it
I don't wanna hear it
I don't wanna see it
Close your eyes and ears and keep your voice down low
Let the world as you know it go

Let it go
Let it go

(Guitar awesomeness...wang wang wang)

(Organ wicked sickness)

I don't wanna say it
I don't wanna be it
I don't wanna hear it
I don't wanna see it
Close your eyes and ears and keep your voice down low
Let the world as you know it go

(Trumpets Hooo!)

Let it go
Let it go
Let it go
Track Name: Hang Tough
Hold it close; don't ever let it go I know that you want
Your life to be a never-ending show, but you're gonna need
This space, these tears and all the pain when you are alone
Just you; your thoughts ringing out like a telephone

Waiting for the call to end it all
Hoping that your will to live will stall

The greater sadness stored in the dark, cold night.
Shouting that it's you, just you and you will never be enough

So you're just a dot in space;
You float and you consume or do you get consumed
With heat and anger over all the grief; hold it in your heart
Your words; the cloud can only hold onto so much rain
And pain, before the sun breaks through
We will be your sun and stars; we promise this to you

Cradling the fall to end it all
Hoping that the candle in the storm will burn

The greater sadness stored in the long cold night.
It's never only you, just you.
Yeah, everyone is gonna hang tough...

For you, just you
Everyone is gonna hang tough
For you, just you
Everyone will burst with love
For you, just you
Riding out the waves so rough
For you, just you
Everyone is gonna hang tough
