about

Second of the the Pathway/Aura/Ascension trilogy this 2012 album is now available on download.

Classic Rock Society Magazine Nov/Dec 2012:Tim Hunter The Aura

“Tim Hunter is quite the talented chappie, with a knack of producing melodic and well-balanced songs.” David Pearson

GloryDaze Music review of The Aura 13.11.12

“Progressive pop... similar to Pink Floyd but still very much Tim Hunter.”

“The classic Mike + The Mechanics sound is still very much at work here, but so is late period Moody Blues and Pink Floyd”

“’The Aura' is progressive but still very accessible… I'm often reminded of the Alan Parsons album 'The Time Machine' in both flow and style.”

“Similar to Pink Floyd but still very much Tim Hunter.”

Review of 'The Aura' in the Dutch Progressive Rock Pages (DPRP)
'The album has a feel of latter period Moody Blues or mid 80’s Alan Parson Project (Pyramid era) and is generally fairly light and easy to listen to……. a pleasant well performed, recorded and presented CD.' 5/10

Track Name: Mother Shipton (The Dragon's Tail)
For storms will rage and oceans roar
Earthquakes will split the plain to shore,
And fiery dragons cross the sky
Six times before the earth shall die

All signs of mankind’s fall and decline

The Dragon's Tail will cross the sky
And then the earth will die
Those were the words of Mother Shipton
That's what she prophesied

And when the Dragon's Tail is gone
Man tries to carry on
But it’s too late to escape our fate.
We should have listened to
Mother Shipton

And before the race is built anew,
A silver serpent comes into view
And spews out men of like unknown
To mingle with the earth now grown

All signs of mankind’s fall and decline

The Dragon's Tail will cross the sky
And then the earth will die
Those were the words of Mother Shipton
That's what she prophesied
And when the Dragon's Tail is gone
Man tries to carry on.
But it’s too late to escape our fate.
We should have listened to
Mother Shipton

(Lyrics: T. Hunter, inspired by the prophecies of Knaresborough’s Mother Shipton)

Track Name: Alien Leylines
There’s an alternate reality
But it’s shrouded in mystery
But if we find it we’ll have the keys to infinity

There’s a source of energy
Crossing the world are lines we cannot see
If we find them we’ll find the symmetry
That will set us free

The Mayans say that the Alien Leylines will show the way
Let the Lost Chords play
And the Alien Leylines will show the way

Where lines cross we find the Pyramids
We saw the great things that mankind did
With help from a far away place,
Far away in space

See the wonders of standing stones
How could man have done that alone?
Somehow they had an understanding of the Just what were they shown?

The Mayans say that the Alien Leylines will show the way, let the Lost Chords play
And the Alien Leylines will show the way

Track Name: Sky Blue Realm
In the sky blue realm
You will find your destiny
In the visions that you see

In the Sky blue realm
In the Sky blue realm
Don’t be overwhelmed
There are things that you seldom see

High in the sky we will fly
Until we reach the clouds
Until we reach the stars
Beltane’s here again
It will be Solstice soon
We’ll worship the sun, the stars, the moon

In the sky blue realm
You will find your destiny
In the visions that you see

Open the way, find direction
Find the Spiral Maze
And the elemental shrine
Beltane’s here again, it will be Solstice soon,
we’ll worship the sun, the stars, the moon

In the sky blue realm
You will find your destiny
In the visions that you see

In the Sky Blue Realm,
In the Sky Blue realm,
Sky Blue Realm,
Sky Blue Realm

Track Name: The Aura
Why does it take so long to find the right song to sing?
Why do so many things go wrong along the way?

Why are there so many pathways to take?
Why are there so many mistakes we have to make?
Before we see the Aura

The Aura, the Aura that’s all around
The Aura, the Aura that surrounds
The Aura, the Aura with beautiful sounds
The Aura, the Aura that’s all around
The Aura

See the Golden Dawn the spiritual alchemy
And you’re drawn towards
The beautiful harmony

Leave your world of logic and so-called certainty
We have to make sure our minds are set free
Before we see the Aura

The Aura ,the Aura that’s all around
The Aura, the Aura that surrounds
The Aura, the Aura with the beautiful sounds
The Aura, the Aura that’s all around
The Aura, the Aura that surrounds
The Aura, The Aura that surrounds us all

Track Name: Android Void (Part 1)
On and on into outer space
Are you ever going to see a trace
Of what’s left of the human race?

Have you had enough of this place?
Tell me why your life is such a waste
Success is something you will never taste

Into the Void, Where the faces that you see are all Android
That’s why you are always feeling
Paranoid, ‘cos your world’s destroyed,
In the Android Void

See the reason for the things you do
It’s the carrot dangling right in front of you
It’s something you must see through

Your surroundings are so surreal
That your wounds will never heal
It’s a world where you can never feel.

Into the Void, Where the faces that you see are all Android, That’s why you are
always feeling paranoid, ‘cos your world’s
destroyed, in the Android Void

See through the illusion
Cut through the confusion
Understand your delusion
Reach another conclusion

Into the Void, where the faces that you see are all Android
That’s why you are always feeling
Paranoid, ‘cos your world’s destroyed,
In the Android Void

Track Name: Going Back
We’re going back to the slipstream
We’re going to find out where we lost our dreams
We’re going back to find out where we went wrong
We’re going to listen to all those songs

It may be too late, but now I finally see
I can see the demons, that were destroying me

Gonna go back in my mind
And find out what went wrong
And drive out the demons and listen to those songs
We’re going back, Back to the slipstream
We’re going back, Back to the slipstream
We’re going back, Back to the slipstream

Track Name: Somewhere in the Slipstream
Remember when you were young,
There was so much to be done
To compete with everyone,
Never time to walk in the sun?

The system took control,
they almost stole our souls
We gave them our minds and the cost was to lose our dreams
So find what we lost, it's back there in the Slipstream
Somewhere in the Slipstream

So much ideology, wondering who you could be
Why could you never see, being yourself would make you free?

The system took control, they almost stole our souls
We gave them our minds and the cost was to lose our dreams
So find what we lost, it's back there in the Slipstream, Somewhere in the Slipstream

Don't do what you're told, don't be bought and sold
Stand up and be bold and try to break the mould

In the Slipstream, Somewhere in the Slipstream
We gave them our minds and the cost was to lose our dreams, So find what we lost, it's back there in the Slipstream,
Somewhere in the Slipstream

Track Name: Step on Board
Excuse me : this is not your mind any more, You only get a tiny slice:
The rest of it is ours
Indulge in a little thought again
And you’ll pay a heavy price

When the day job takes control
It leaves you broken and old
Then the day job takes its toll
Nothing's spoken you’re controlled

It breaks your will
You're on the treadmill, I’m on it still
So taste the bitter pill, Of reality

Step on board, come on step onboard
Once it starts it never stops
It only ends when you drop

It leaves you wonderin’, What we’re living for, It leaves you wonderin’
If there’s another world to explore
It leaves you wonderin’, If there’s something more,
Than The Day Job, Than The Day Job, Than The Day Job

Track Name: The Return of the Androids
If I saw just one more human face
I’d be overjoyed
Don’t think I can stand a land
overrun by Androids

Nobody really wants to speak
Everywhere you go
you find it’s oh so bleak
How are you ever gonna
find the things you seek?

There’s only Androids everywhere
There’s no emotion, nobody cares
There’s only Androids, with their eyes of steel, there’s only Androids,
Is anything real?

This is not the world we used to know
It’s built on sand with no tomorrow
It’s a mess, everywhere you go
Faceless and so much sorrow

Track Name: Android Void (Reprise)
Found out my doctor was an Android
He only wanted me to stay employed
In a world, a world where I could never dream

Only hope that I can find a cure
‘Cos I don’t think that I can stand no more
Of a world that only worships a machine

Into the Void
Where the faces that you see
Are all Android
That’s why you’re always
feeling paranoid
‘Cos your world’s destroyed,
In the Android Void

Track Name: Home In The Sun
Sir Francis Drake with his boats and guns
Founded New Albion
A home in the sun
Where people can free creativity
That’s where I want to be
Where the mountains meet the sea
In a beach house in a secluded bay
Somewhere off the coastal highway

My Home in the Sun
Oh it will be my sanctuary
Won’t be the lonely one no more
No I will be free, down by the sea

Home In The Sun, Home In The Sun

I want to go and be Philip Marlowe
In the land of the golden haired ones
My spiritual home a home in the sun
Where you can have fun,
That’s where I want to be,
To see the fountains and palm trees,
In a beach house in a secluded bay,
Yes, I’m gonna be there someday.

My Home in the Sun ,
Oh it will be my sanctuary
Won’t be the lonely one no more,
No I will be free, down by the sea
Gonna be there someday
In some secluded bay
