ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Music For Your Spacecraft is a collection of songs about us, our planet, our technology, and our solar system. Mostly within the realm of rock music, there is a distinct visitation of electronica. Sometimes spacey, sometimes intense, all of the songs are suitable for lift-off, and as a soundtrack to the view of outer space as you gaze from your spacecraft porthole whilst puttering around the cosmos.

All songs written and performed by Zanerbob

Heathen - A visit to British Progrock of the late sixties and seventies. A driving, rhythmic, intergalactic war of guitars. We're all heathens to somebody. What would people from another world think of us? Would they consider us to be intelligent? …barbaric? ...accomplished? …arrogant? …heathens? What would we think of them?

Emotional Metamorphosis - A musical representation of an individual's development over time and through worldly influence.

Underwater City - A submarine ride to a city beneath the waves.

Dancing Robots - Robots swirl and sway, scuttle back and forth, and flash their lights.

Bat Flying Time - The last bright sunlight slips away, and in the dusk arrive the bats. They flitter in the failing light as night falls.

The Sun - (see lyrics below) This is a song from the Zanerbob Archives, written many years ago. A song about the life on our planet, and the star which gives us life.

High Above - (see lyrics below) Another song from the archives about life on Earth. I think it still has relevance today, as does the previous song.

The rest of the recordings are based on some guitar pieces I recorded a long time ago, spacey improvisations, with an abrupt change at the end, entitled 'Daydream 1 and 2/Rude Awakening'. I expanded it a bit, renamed it, and added an abrupt change at the end of the abrupt change, (if that makes sense).

Dream 1 (Love) - First in a series of four dream songs. It is a song of love and yearning.

Dream 2 (Fate) - A song portraying the solemnity, and finite nature of mortal existence.

Dream 3 (The ether) - Floating out of body in the ether, out to a sea of astral color.

Rude Awakening - An abrupt wake up call. More battling guitars.

MUSIC FOR YOUR SPACECRAFT - LYRICS

The Sun

The moonlight softly giving way,
the sun has brought another day.
The foggy haze which lines the ground
in silken swirls as soft as down,
begins to fade as light appears,
and falls to earth like tiny tears.

Our world awakens in the presence
of it’s sun.
It’s rays are blinding when the day
has just begun.

A lonely bird will sing his song
soon multitudes will join along.
The grass so tall, within it dwells
a world whose sound begins to swell.
Evoking feelings so serene,
almost dreamlike is this scene.

Our world oblivious
to feelings of this kind.
No longer thinking of
the higher things in life.

The early risers in their race,
who never see at such a pace,
travel by without a glance,
never notice life’s romance.
I sit alone to be as one
with nature, worshipping the sun.

The sun so wonderful
the giver of all life.
It’s warmth as bountiful
and joyous as it’s light.





High Above

High above
the birds fly circles,
the treetops calling them.
Waving in the breezy air,
their motion comforting.

Down below
the forrest rings with
every living creature
singing of his life and freedom,
a song we used to know.

Where went the innocence
which gave us dignity?
The child remembers,
but can not tell.
We’ve lost humanity.
We’ve lost the meaning of our lives.
We came so close to knowing the truth
of our world.

Look around
and see the people
so lost in ignorance.
Doing things for selfish reasons
in hateful dissonance.

Live your life
an open one,
with empathy.
Generous to all you meet,
embrace humanity.

Where went the innocence
which gave us dignity?
The child remembers,
but can not tell.
We’ve lost humanity.
We’ve lost the meaning of our lives.
We came so close to knowing the truth
of our world.
