about

First studio album of the band of two — Jan Vaschuk and Bob Erin, carrying the message quite similar to that of Voyager-1 probe: it's all about our earthly stuff, a bit of love, a bit of pain, some Beatles and Pink Floyd influence extracted from our DNA, all transcoded into universally accepted form of music and sent into outer space for your pleasure.

Vishnu's Eyes San Francisco, California

Hi, my name is Jan. I write songs, walk around and dream about space. If you're from the future, then you're about to find a bunch of quite vintage tracks with that classic "2010s post-britpop" feel. Otherwise, it's just indie. Alright, drop by and take a listen. ... more

Track Name: Free
This river is so long it doesn't matter
Where does it begin
And will it ever end
Will you get your feet back on the ground and stay around
Or will you drown

Just because your love won't last forever
You don't have to weep
'Cause nothing ever does
You better put your shoes on and come on
Because your time has come

You're free from
The things that would keep
You apart from yourself
The only mistake that you can make
Is to keep on waiting

Just because your road is long and winding
Doesn't mean that it will lead you to her door
You better put your glasses on and go
To a place where you belong

‘Cause you're free from
The things that would keep
You apart from yourself
The only mistake that you can make
Is to run for shelter

From the storm that won’t last
Won’t carry away
Anyone that you love
You need to get through
To see what's true
Better now than never

Before you make a step
Outside your home
You stand listening on the door
Your heartbeat echoes in your head
Then you turn the key and pull away
And you’re gone
With the morning light
It’s all they need to know
Everything that’s left
Will vanish with one wave of a magic wand

‘Cause you're free from
The things that would keep
You apart from yourself
You look just like me and I can see
That you keep on waiting

Your lips move
But you don't say a word
Something gets in the way
I want to break through
To get to you
But will you ever let me
Track Name: Perfect Combination (Of Love and Pain)
Deep down
You got the bomb in you
You got blue and red wires in your mind

You know the ones
That make you feel low
You have to say
Before we get blown away

At the end of the day
It’s all about the perfect combination
Of love and pain
That get in the way
That come to you without an invitation
You’re gonna go far

Na Na Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na Na Na
Na Na Na Na Na Na

I’m sick and tired
I’ve got enough of this
That’s what you say
The moment you’re blown away

No point going insane
Trying to find the perfect combination
Of love and hate
That get in the way
That come to you without an invitation
You’re gonna go for it

There’s nothing more to it than a pure luck
That makes you feel desperate enough
To pull the pin
And salute the world goodbye
Track Name: Hey Lizzy
I still have something to be sad about
I still have something to remember
Don't you?

This sort of things that we can read about
Or see 'em in a movie someday

Well I live on my own
And there's nothing wrong
But there's a spark in your eyes
That explains it all

From the moment I wake
To the moment I sleep
I've got so many reasons to sing you a song

Hey Lizzy
Hey, is it the rain drop on your face that
Became famous a few moments ago?

Down on the river far from city lights
They got their tapes and their recorder, oh yeah
They sing your song like lonesome lullaby
To their little restless children

Well you live on your own
And there’s nothing wrong
You put a smile on your face as you come and go

From the moment I wake
To the moment I sleep
I've got so many reasons to sing you a song

Hey Lizzy,
Hey, is it the tear stain on your face that
Became famous a few moments ago?

Oh listen,
Now, d'you know the name of club
Where all the old stars go
When they fade out of fame?

Or maybe they just stay
On side of the road
Suitcase in the hand
Get on the train
Without knowing is there anybody waiting for them
Except for the couple of old fans
And all their wrecked up friends
But before you go —

Hey Lizzy,
Hey, it may be not just a coincidence
That you see things
The same way that I do
Track Name: Streets of This Town
Streets of this town remind me
Of certain time in my life
Oh it’s a pity I’m not there

Out of the middle of nowhere
You say there’s no tomorrow
I’d like to say the opposite but things

Remain the same
Or am I running too fast
Instead of facing unavoidable?
Should I keep on running away

Or let myself enjoy
The dramatic view
Of the ship that's going down?

CHORUS:

"Come on,
I doubt that we can make it alone
Not sure we can
Take it any more"

"Hold on a moment,
Maybe once in a while
Times gonna change
Will we ever know?"

"Come on,
I think that we should make it alone"

"Not sure we can"

Sunset upon the forest
A thousand gentle voices
It’s such a pity I’m not there

Down to the bottom of the
Insatiable river
Or onwards to the shore
Of nowhere land

It should be friendly enough
To save my soul
At least you told me so
Should I keep on running away

Or sit back and enjoy
The dramatic view
Of the ship that's going down

CHORUS

Don’t you see the flicker in the sky?
They say "Goodbye, 'twas worth a try"
Track Name: Not Fading With Time
I take a walk in desolate park
That had once been
Lovely and green
Passing by the bench that we sat on
That fall day you breathed in to say

"Well I gotta go
And you gotta stay solo"
Still I've got feeling that something inside you
Is tuned to my radio
So here’s the song

CHORUS:

Everything you’ve said and done is not fading with time
If you keep in mind that we both are
The stars in the dead of night

Every lonely road you drive
In your search for new love
Photographs in the frames
Are you waiting for something?

Stuck in a little bar we've been talking
'Till closing time
You said I'm just a little late
And I said, it's understood
Well I can't break down the walls that
Someone else has built around you
But I’m never tired of being a DJ
So you can turn on the radio and hear

CHORUS

Lets take a walk in desolate park
And it’s alright
You can stay tonight
Even if our hearts are of stone
We can just hug to bring back the spark
Track Name: Shut Your Mouth
So you say I have no taste
Oh my God, I got no sleep tonight

Dunno If you'll understand
But let me give you just one good advice honey

CHORUS:
Shut your mouth
When you’re hanging around with a rock star, bitch
I’ve had enough
Of you telling me how should a tough guy look like

Girl, you’re a genius
But nobody cares,
It’s all going down the drain

I’m sorry to interrupt
'Cause you may have something more to criticise
Well maybe it’s time
For me to say it loud and clear

CHORUS

And maybe it can make a little sense
If you sit closer to me
Maybe we can go further in the hotel room
Let’s make it
But don’t you forget to
Shut your mouth when you hang with a rock star, bitch
Track Name: Can I Help You?
Can I help you?
Can I help you out?
Can I love you more than you ever know?

'Cause I know you
From the day one
And I know for sure what is good for you
There you go, and the moment is gone — bye

That's when I
Feel like the one
And only passenger on that
Train that has gone too far
Before I found the route was wrong
That's how I got to you

Can I take you—
Can I take you home?
Can I play you all of my cassette tapes?

Can I take off
Your tiny dress?
Can I lay you down on my old mattress?

You said "No, no,
That's not right time.
Don't you try"

I feel like the one
And only passenger on that
Train that has gone too far
Before I found the route was wrong
That's how I met you

You've built up the walls
That only few can scramble on
And now that I got this near
I doubt I want to carry on
That's how I get to you

And when the eye of the storm
Comes whirling in
There's nothing for you to understand,
Just get through it
And then hit the same road again

I'm all on my own
The only soul that’s still alive
Whenever I got this fear
I’m stuck inside the labyrinth
That's how I get to you
Track Name: Something in the Air
So little known, so famous though
You walk on
You know the rules, you're trained and calm
You're part of the plan now

Just take it slow
Slower than the sun
Setting down as you get up
It takes time

CHORUS:

There's something in the way
You're hiding your eyes from camera
Wash off the makeup and go home

Something in the air
Is telling you it will be alright
This time
It slips away
And the answers you need
Decay into particles

You're not alone
At least today
It takes time
So many ways to get in touch
You just need to get home

She is lighter than the sun
For everyone
(No answer)

CHORUS
Track Name: Satellites
High above the Earth are hanging satellites
Looking down at people lost in their desires
So many of them spend the time of their lives

Talking to flickering lights above so high (so high)
Looking into the night to find (to find)

All across the ocean and around the globe
Ordinary people hunting high and low
For any clue to solve the maze of their lives

It's flickering high above at night
Fading into the dark slowly (slowly)

You're sending the radio wave out and hope
They'll hear you this time around
And maybe they'll write you back

High atop the tallest mountain in the world
There’s the pale blue dot somewhere in the void
Some other restless minds are spending their lives

Talking to flickering lights above so high (so high)
Looking into the night to find (to find)

Sending the radio wave out and hope
You'll hear them this time around
And maybe you'll write them back
Track Name: One of the Few
It's Sunday
Soon the new day will come alive
All is still in the early morning
Just like it was the night before

Goodbye
Says the horn on the lonesome street
Your cab is gone and the air still shimmers
Whole world is waiting for my next move

Now I know I'm one of the few
Left alone in the sea of past
Do I really have to care about it?
Do I really have to run
Fast as I can?

I’m alright
Systems go and the day is fine yeah
People come and they go, it’s the law
There’s no point feeling bad about that

A long run
From the point of no return to
Something you call a new beginning
Seems more like a round trip years from now

Now I know the amount of the fuel left
Is not enough to go back
Do I really have to care about it?
Do I really have to run
Fast as I can?

Love, I know this place
Is abandoned moonbase
That still broadcasts
Do I really have to stay forever?
Do I really have to run
Fast as I can?
Track Name: Hold Your Breath
Don’t look up
Don’t step out of line
When you’re on your way
On train to your suburban resort

Pay the way
Everywhere you go
You know there will be blood
So hold your fist and be alert
When you see a guy in blue

CHORUS:

Hold your breath, take a deep dive
Go get yourself a Turkish delight, take a shot
That will soothe your soul during the winter night

Don’t wake up, it’s so natural
For you to live your life in the dream knowing that
You will have a heart attack in the end

Never mind
Keep on keeping on
And don’t forget to pray
To paralysing fishy eyes
That take away your will and desire

CHORUS

No, we didn't mean to hurt you, they say
And then they stab you right in your back
And then you suddenly wake up
Sitting on the corner of your bed
Will it last forever?
Who knows
Track Name: Life's Business Trip
You want to say that you love her
But she's always one step ahead of you
You want to say that you need her
But she's alright
She doesn't need you on that street on that night

CHORUS:

She's just one of the stops
In your life's business trip
You've nothing to lose, oh boy
She'll be with you wherever you go

Cause she's one of the streets
In this town of lonely hearts
Nowhere to go from here
You're an island and she is the sea

You'd like to stay here forever
But you're only a part-time employee
You want to quit but you can't stop
You can't stop
I know what keeps you waiting
I know that she's—

CHORUS
Track Name: Tired and Lazy (Acoustic)
And now that you’re so great
Out of the blue
Can you give me a second?

Look what on earth they do
To get to you
Your beard is nearly sacred

CHORUS:

Do you know is it real love or lucky break?
You’re all preoccupied with looking tired and lazy
When camera’s on

Are you too busy to turn your head away
From mirror on the wall and say hello to someone
You called your friend?
Oh, well

You fancy ‘bout the last thing
You will think about
In hotel room dying from overdose

You cannot help but share these
Thoughts with your fan base
So they can pick the best one

CHORUS

Someone’s trying
To reach you on the phone tonight
Too little to care about

Stop, erase and rewind
The moments of the past
Too little to care about

So you’re Lord’s chosen, you live in Shangri-La
Your tiny glamorous and wannabe oasis
You’ve built yourself

Are you too busy to take your eyes away
From mirror on the wall and say hello to someone
You called your friend?
Track Name: New Year Song (feat. Agnessa Koroleva)
Merry Christmas every living species
You will soon be going into hibernation
Hope Mother Nature helps you through it

Hallelujah, Hare Hare Krishna
Inshallah, ah—I'm lost in the words
In attempt to say
That it's all gonna be okay

CHORUS:

And I said
Merry Christmas to you and me
And all the guys
That you're gonna get on their knees
La la la

Everything’s gonna be alright because
You know, there’s no other way
Make a wish

La la la la la la la la la ooh

May I kiss you
Just because my T-shirt is white
And my jeans are blue
And I got that James Dean look
As I pass you by

And if you guys
Don’t believe in God
It’s still alright,
I think he’s fine on his cloud #9 up there
He does not care
And he says

CHORUS

Happy new year
Hope it won't screw ya
On your way to Hollywood
I know you would rather stay home
But you can't
