about

Spaceland Albany, New York

Spaceland is made of three brothers. They base their name and musical imagery from the book Flatland: A Romance of Many Dimensions, which depicts a character who travels to dimensions that are thought to be impossible. Based on this philosophy, the band strives to create worlds in their lyrics and music to take hold of imagination and emotion in the listener to see reality beyond a flat existence. ... more

Track Name: The Great Silhouette
Turn the emptiness up loud
From the heart of here and now
On the verge of all we ever are
Just a flicker on a wall
It's a far cry from the soul
That is just below us awakening

Enter with your beating heart
And a dream on the words you say
And you wish upon the stars
And you know we'll never lose
Cause the futures a promise to you
Just as long as there's time

Are we sitting here stained watching our colors fade
Turning into the silhouette against the wall

Run from the air the future breathes
Shout at the walls make freedom speak
We are the fall, the rise in all
Running with heart and promise drawn

Hear the ghosts inside my head telling me what I have said
Now they're all jumping and now
On the cliff on the verge of it all
Is a tower of control mixing all these signals inside

I don't want to be here where you can't hear me at all
I want to shout in the eyes, we're not a silhouette at all

Run from the air the future breathes
Shout at the walls make freedom speak
We are the fall, the rise in all
Running with heart and promise drawn

I'll go or I'll wait, just promise you'll be on the other side
Clearly falling for a restless idea coming to life
Here I feel the rush through my veins calling me alive

Run from the air the future breathes
Shout at the walls make freedom speak
We are the fall, the rise in all
Running with heart and promise drawn
Track Name: Of Higher Origins
Hold on, you're the last one of your kind
Almost gone, you were blending into time
Still in the run of the past colliding on
All that was gone is now calling back to me

Up from the lights and towers in our eyes
Hung in the dark, the secrets of the light
The air feels alive from the system that's inside
You're one of the few chosen to ignite life

Sound waves keep calling back to me
From above my head in the dark sea

Listen higher
To hear who you are
You know you're something other than
A simple system
Of vast emptiness
That's thickening between this lens

Still wide awake, dreaming miles away
I still hear the faintest sound hitting my ear
With a cross from a tree, reminding holes in me
A kingdom so loud, how can't we make a sound

Lost waves keep calling back to me
From above my head in the dark sea

Listen higher
To hear who you are
You know you're something other than
A simple system
Of vast emptiness
That's thickening between this lens
Track Name: Empty Worlds
Wait until the world falls down, to open space where we once were found
Way deep into those eyes, I see a face I don't recognize
Of blank, swirling in disguise, that soon will fade into this empty light
Let go, I need you know
I need your love, I need your love

Lay wide awake in sights of breaking lights burning up like fire
Way on the dark side of those suns, in open space where we started from

Falling open
Oh

Taste the air above the sky, and feel the cold of the worlds gone by
Oh way deep into those eyes, I see a face I don't recognize

Falling open
Into dimension
In the empty sky I'm waking
Oh

Wake as all the sights come alive, and all you feel inside is what's fallen away
Wait till all the world falls down, an empty space fills now with a new sight
Let go as colors rise on the break, the call inside you shakes for reverse of fate

Falling open
Into dimension
In the empty sky I'm waking
Oh
Track Name: Somewhere Nowhere
Words are not enough to describe you
Nor a song enough to find you
But here today I see light shines in a new way
But dark waits to hide you

Before we open all the doors
And let everything in
Just know that I will try

For if we could find our time
Somewhere nowhere lost out in time, lost out in time

Still, the earth in it's beauty can't define yours clearly
But there you stand staring deep into merely sand
Or maybe seeing us on a distant land

Where I am by your side
With nothing left to hide
That's where we will find

For if we could find our time
Somewhere nowhere lost out in time

Somewhere in the silence
Nowhere in the darkness
Somewhere nowhere

If I could I'd jump through
Rather than left without you
We could escape on the dust
Leaving this old world to rust
Oh

Darling the night is falling
Yet the day is breaking through
Out on this golden shaped day
Close yet miles away from you

Search the trillions of galaxies
I can't find one like yours
Track Name: Stay
Spill your words on the street
Television sets you free
Speak your heart on the satellites
We're alone, complete is gone
You say your the one to lead it all
But no ones here to hear anymore
Kiss the ground to feel the sky
And wonder if we can fly
But the ground is still a long way down

Oh, oh,

Through the glass an open path
Forms the whisper, the garden shows
In us closed we can't hear it at all
Plead of hearts set the stones
The poison streams in our blood
Like the speed that we travel in

Oh, oh,

Stay oh love here in my head
Hang our heights above our ledge

If I try to reach my arm
And piece the vision of who we are
As our transmission is coming back to us

Oh, oh,

Oh, oh,
Still our stars will never be ours
Still we run away from you, to you

Stay oh love here in my head
Hang our heights above our ledge

Oh, oh, oh, oh
Track Name: Motion of the Motionless
Do you wander out far, to see it all clear, like you did before
Cause I don't know where to stop, I keep falling up, oh, oh
Do you wake from your sleep, alive in the fear of falling asleep
Lost out in wonder of silence we speak, oh, oh

Do you wander the edge, and search for the end, right above you stand
As I stood on the ledge and let go of your hand, oh, oh
I don't know why I did, I'll wonder the days I live, oh, oh

Let's play the mood like we never left here
And drift the wonder in the ides of this life
Dividing in two, I never meant to
Be motionless

Do you ever think of the weight of the stars, cause I feel them every night
I couldn't stop the rise and fall, like all the kingdoms before, oh, oh

Let's play the mood like we never left here
And drift the wonder in the ides of this life
Dividing in two, I never meant to
Be motionless
Track Name: Sweet Light Street Light
Take a breath, I close my eyes and fade out
Wishing light would come out and show itself
Walking along this brightly lit city street
Singing beside the melodies around me, and I drift out

Hang up my coat, and walk back down to the Earth
Back to what lies in these bones and skin
Excitement and fear living so close this year
Creating all the melodies inside me, and I drift out

As my eyes drift out
Sweet light, street lights fade out
In bright lights my sight is found
In tones and in stars glows, it glows

Staring so deep in through the moving air
At last I can keep the feeling of moving stars
Under these eyes, atop of this chair tonight
The melodies I find in the stars light

As my eyes drift out
Sweet light, street lights fade out
In bright lights my sight is found
In tones and in stars glows, it glows

It glows
Track Name: In a Dark Sphere
Was looking back through an hour glass
In all the centuries that past
And saw the sand change and collapse
As our world's turning over
In a dark sphere

Was looking back in sphericals
of small worlds lighting up
Through all the things I've said and done
Once wonder filled, these eyes are done
From dreams that slowly reappear
A gentle glow that once was near
Is now a fading distant sound
I hear in riddles all around

Take me higher
Above the cold air
Far gone out there
Beyond all the glare

Take these eyes back to the end
Before motions of dark began
In this bright sphere watching suns
Turning into faded ones

From cold fires that burnt the clouds
Enough to let a star come out
Shouts a story that's untold
And future plans to unfold
The world's turn leads everything
Back to where it became
The small light that grew so large
Yet lit this world up with dark

Take me higher
Above the cold air
Far gone out there
Beyond all the glare

Take these eyes back to the end
Before motions of dark began
In this bright sphere watching suns
Turning into faded ones, oh

Take me higher
Above the cold air, yeah
Far gone out there
Beyond all the glare
In a dark sphere
Track Name: Static
It's all in a rush now, it's a lost escape
The world that's spinning all around me has stopped
I enter the air in this place that stretch for miles
Lost in this rush of what you left me in

Standing in lines that are clear and then disappear
One minute holding her world inside mine
Falling away in the image of time
Gaining everything an escape can bare

Drifting out into the static around you
Taking (oh) all of me, as I'm falling

In movement of motion in a world's escape
Collide in the blues of a rush that still remains
With shadows and signs of still life that exist between us
Moving to motions in reverse

Drifting out into the static around you
Taking (oh) all of me, as I'm falling
Drifting static sound weighs us down
Falling signals fade in and out
Track Name: In the City
It's a beautiful night under the city light
Distracted in all of distorted nights
Lost out of words, losing a waste of time
Watching the clock as I'm losing mine

I keep looking in rooms of the city light
Hoping one door will lead to where you are tonight
So honestly slide words in the city
And they come back to me, bright in the city light, yeah

Out in stars losing heart from the start of the start
Wandering broken streets in the dead of the night
Trapped in clocks of broken time, oh I've wasted all mine
Losing air from living life under the city light

Under lights hung too far into the sky
The posts line the road, mimicking sunlight
Every door looks like home, every house is alone
It's a beautiful sight in the city tonight

Out in stars losing heart from the start of the start
Wandering broken streets in the dead of the night
Trapped in clocks of broken time, oh I've wasted all mine
Losing air from living life under the city light
Track Name: Beautiful Curse
Out of the woods comes a southern face, yeah she's an angel from a brighter place
She brings the sun with her lovely voice, and stand in beauty with no other choice
Her eyes can bring the whole world to it's knees, and melodies that seem to calm the seas
The look that pierces right through your eyes, she holds the secret without a try

And it's only till I realize, that our worlds will never align

A little southern queen that shines around, yeah she's the bell with the sweetest sound
There is no word to describe her, her beauty's deeper than all colors
Speechless left with the effect of every glance and of every breath
Then she speaks into my ear the sweetest melody that I'd ever hear

And it's only till I realize, that our worlds will never align

Then she shows me what a curse looks like
As she slowly walks on by
Like an angel wrapped in lights
And I just can't get her out of my mind

Night falls on the southern land as her head falls on her hand
Sparkles spring up in the night above and below her in flight
In the dark I see her light, brighter than the brightest light
Pulling me closer in, to the steps where love begins

And deep in her eyes the answer lies, that our worlds will never align

Then she shows me what a curse looks like
As she slowly walks on by
Like an angel wrapped in lights
And I just can't get her out of my mind
Track Name: Fighting to React
Dark in the heart of night came the bright lights through the ribbons of the sky
Crashing with sound waves from deep in space, riding through the dirt
Capturing our fields in landing ways, looking for life beyond theirs

Do they search for the same
As we do, here everyday
For love and journeys through space
The same, just fighting to react

Machines scan the bare grass while the others pass to meet humans at last
We feel our ground shake and each question ache from the footsteps they take
The sky is still lined with lights coming down, we are closer now

Do they search for the same
As we do, here everyday
For love and journeys through space
The same, just fighting to react

The truth lies in their eyes of beyond earth's sky will be answered tonight
Out in the moonlight with rhythm plaguing minds of the two sides
Words shoot from their lights about love and life beneath earth's beautiful sight

Do they search for the same
As we do, here everyday
For love and journeys through space
The same, just fighting to react
Track Name: Altair Descent
Can you hear me cold as I speak out loud, calling you out to the bottom
The words on my lips are numb from the hits, and numb from the air growing colder
Just tell me you'll try better than I tried, now I lay here with the silence
Did you feel it too, deep in the blue, holding your eyes back from running away

Oo, Oo

Can anyone hear the sound of the fear, in echoes that just are now reaching
The gravity high is pulling apart the sky from the tips of my fingers
But here in this time running fills my mind, since way back the sun began to shine
With cold on my tongue and warmth in my breath, I reach from the end where it began to shine

Oo, Oo

Oh up to the land of visible circles our hope is up
Reach through the air, we push until altair descent
It's colder as we go, but further these worlds are a bright glow
Far circles of hope call us through altair decent

Can you hear me call, can you feel me fold, my message is clearly glowing
But I hope to see those colors again, as long as the cold can hear me descend
