I'm usually pretty able to find lyrics of recent music online, but
this one has me stumped. It's been out a couple of years, but I still
haven't been able to find anything. The specific songs I'm interested
in are "Eclipse", "Alleged" and "Quiet", but I'd be interested in the
whole thing if possible. Thanks in advance for any assistance you
might be able to provide.

Hi setanor-ga,

I've located lyrics to "Eclipse" and "Quiet," as well as other songs
from the album. ("Alleged" is proving more difficult). The site,
however, that I found them on makes a point of saying that the lyrics
may not be 100% accurate. Not sure if that would be acceptable to you
or not.

Anything would be greatly appreciated, completely accurate or not.
And, yeah, I sort of figured that "Alleged" might be the most
difficult to find. Thanks!

Hi setanor-ga,

Thanks for your question.

The lyrics to “Quiet” and “Eclipse” by the Beta Band can be found at
this site (as I noted in my request for clarification, the site owner
points out that the lyrics may not be a 100% accurate):



The site also has other songs from the album (“Squares,” “Al Sharp,”
“Human Being,” “Dragon,” and “Life”) here:

The Beta Band Lyrics/Hot Shots II

After much searching I found the lyrics to “Alleged” on a forum
devoted to the Beta Band along with a number of other transcriptions
for some of the other tracks on “Hot Shots II” (“Gone,” “Broke,” as
well as the ones from the site above) “Alleged” is about halfway down
the first page.

You might be interested in this forum so here’s the link to that as

Search strategy:
Google search
"beta band" eclipse lyrics
“beta band” alleged lyrics
“beta band” official site

I hope this answers your question. If you need additional information
or if the links do not work, please ask for clarification before
rating my answer and I’ll do my best to assist you.
