    After their first album (“eROCKtile dysFUNKtion SOULutions” [CD+DVD] -2006) and a long tour across Spain and Portugal, this English singing rock band wanted to take a definitive step forward.
    MOON CRESTA contacted Grammy nominated producer Sylvia Massy, who worked with some of the most influential bands and artist for these young musicians (Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Black Crowes, Reef, Skunk Anansie, among many others) and they decided to make the new album together. During spring 2009, they travelled to Weed, California USA, to develop the new songs at RadioStar Studios (www.radiostarstudios.com).
    “The sparkling radiostars & their lunatic orcresta” is the title of this new release that shows the MOON CRESTA personal vision of rock and funk through careful song writing and forceful groovy performance. An eclectic work that confirms the particular power & funk style of MOON CRESTA with songs like “Be real”, “Leave them alone” or “Hard Railway”, but also explores new expressive language in tracks like “Burn”, “Infatuation” or “Long way from home”.

Track Name: The sound of the mountain
I have to make up my mind
No time for worries or fears, we’re getting high
The unknown won’t make me afraid
This is a journey to outer and inner space

No time for final dance, go ahead
It’s time to break all fences
Look straight at real life no dreams instead
And I say: Turnabout, turnabout!

Now I can hear the silent mountain
Yes, I see the sun beyond

I’m really crossing the line
No stumbling steps to goal, don’t ask me why
That’s what I was waiting for
One way ticket to somewhere, to the beyond

Conviction and hopefulness, all my gear
We’ll find the land of magic
My spirit turns so wild and so fierce
And I say: Here we are, here we are!

Now I can hear the silent mountain
Yes, I see the sun beyond
Track Name: Burn
I’ve been searching for years and I didn’t find yet
A buried secret that’s out of my sight

Tons of ashes are covering my puzzling mightiness
gonna shaking them out of my hide

I wanna be washed in the fountain where we were born
just a rite of rebirth to arise

The cascades are flying like falling unicorns
I hear the stories; you kill me to keep me alive

Fire and water build up my renaissance
I clean the cinders to carry out my plans
New brilliant lights will glow so radiant

Chorus:
I ain’t gonna burn down
Shine on
Gonna burn till dawn

I’ve been lost in a labyrinth trying to run and flee
But now I’m passing the mystery gate
I am opening doors that my fear didn’t let me see
I was blind and I thought that time was getting late
Track Name: Lyrical therapy
Long time ago I was such a happy boy
I sang my tunes full of joy
Some bad vibrations are making me annoyed
I am unable to enjoy

Why does sadness make me so?

The lines I write are stained by bitter words
They look like sharp cutting swords
Want to remember the way I used to be
The path to reach liberty

Come on baby set me free

I’ll throw this weight away
I’ve got too much to say
It’s healthy for my brain

This is my treatment my special therapy
please give me my medicine
look at my guns, they’re the softest ones I have
just paper, pen and guitar.

They can hurt the bravest heart

I will start to get rid of my demons from my past
Your frustration inspires me and makes my songs blast
Track Name: Leave them alone
If you can decode my signs
If you can hear my voice and see my sparkling lights
That means that we’re almost wired
Through a million light years all across the deep blue sky


First we thought we’d take the moon
Then we wanted to conquer all those big stars
Trying to discover you
We’ve realized how insignificant we are


We’d be glad and happy
When you answer our call
Cause we’d be verifying
That we are not alone


We can assure that we’re not the only ones
Not at all
I wonder why we don’t leave them alone
On their own


The Human race has crossed the space
Too much zeal to look for some one out there
But now I’m thinking to myself
If they’d really care about our existence
Track Name: Be real
A single word could be enough to express your intentions
A brief refusal it’s so helpful to decline
No need at all for any kind of justifications
You must be consistent, tell me, what d’you expect from life?
You learnt to obey, do what they tell you, with no reaction
Just change your ways it’s so easy if you try.

Chorus:
You’ve gotta be real to yourself
It’s up to you: to do the best
You’ve gotta be real to yourself
It’s up to you: to do the best

Avoid lamenting and reject unmerited kindness
Don’t be considerate to someone who always lies.
At first it seems you act a little bit rude and bad mannered
Soon you’ll become very pleased & satisfied

No fake politeness, I’ve been raped, ravished, hassled
Never say yes to things you really should deny

Chorus:
You’ve gotta be real to yourself
It’s up to you: to do the best
You’ve gotta be real to yourself
It’s up to you: to do the rest
Track Name: Betrayer
Sometimes I think you feel fine so I guess I can phone you.
Though I know you are down I would like to hold you
But a few minutes later I’m sure that you hate me
If your mind wants to kill me your arms want to embrace me

Another year has passed us by. (your life)
A little bit of everyone’s life
The pieces of your broken pride (your pride)
are spread and covered by dust and grime

You are telling your friends that I’m cruel ‘cause I left you,
that I’ve ruined your life since the first time I met you,
that I have shot you down from behind like a traitor
You consider me now the biggest betrayer

Another year has passed us by. (your life)
A little bit of everyone’s life
The pieces of your broken pride (your pride)
are spread and covered by dust and grime
Track Name: Infatuation
Can remember your feelings,
Can remember when you used to love.
It was just the beginning
when passion can warm everyone.

But someday the wind will blow,
the cold in your heart will freeze your moods
and your spoiled words.
Then the beast will grow.

Chorus:
You, get out of my sight
I’m tired of your infatuation
Don’t you stay by my side
I can’t stand this situation
Please get out of my life

If you are hesitating
whether you really love me or not,
if this stage of waiting
is the proof that you may quit this job

may be your time has come.
The cold in your heart has frozen your moods
and your spoiled words.
Now the beast has grown

Chorus

But your fickle ways
made you retrace your steps
one summer day.
Now we already know where we should go
And who we really love
Track Name: Long way from home
We made the moon grow under our feet
We knocked at every single door so restlessly

But when the moon almost fell down
I found
Your calm and belief
in me

we fought against misfortune and we won
we suffered, we felt the pain but now we’re strong

But when the moon begins to shine
So bright
I want you to be
here

Baby I miss you so
It happens every time I have to go
A long, long way from home

Two angels brought their smiles to our lives
They came to us like sweet dreams come late at night

And when you have to take that plane
once again
I want you to be
here

Baby I miss you so
It happens every time you have to go
A long, long way from home

Baby I miss you so
It happens every time I have to go
A long, long way from home
Track Name: Hard railway
We are traveling across this land
Neither too slow nor too fast
We’re just looking for a place where we can dance
And have some funky experience

We took a train with no destination
No matter where we go
We can go roaming through any nation
We’re ready for the show

Let’s make a trip around
Don’t you miss the train
You know we’re back in town
We’re face to face again

Anytime we’ve been thrown out the way
Anytime god gives us up
We stand up and put a sight on the railway
We say out loud: just keep it up

The neighbours say that we are offenders
Rock music is our crime
These sonic weapons never surrender
We shoot them all time

Let’s make a trip around
Don’t you miss the train
You know we’re back in town
We’re face to face again

You are convinced that we are illegal
No matter what we do
You try to cut the wings of an eagle
But hate comes back to you.

Let’s make a trip around
Don’t you miss the train
You know we’re back in town
We’re face to face again
Track Name: $.O.$. (sale our souls)
Selling our souls to you

Selling our souls to you

T.V. show made you a promise that they’d really change your life
“– You’ll get anything you want”
fame, celebrity and fortune: that will be the awaited prize
But you’ll never know the price

“– Sign your name to this contract. It’s the deal of your life
- It’s alright”

“– From this moment your existence belongs to us
We are your owners”

You’re in a crossroad sealing a deal

You’ll never get your spirit back
They hold your body and your mind
Choose between honour and delight
‘cause you will never backtrack

“– Don’t you worry it’s a contest. You just have to be yourself”
but you’ll never be the same.
Famous contestant ran over by a train on Christmas day
Others crashed on the highway

One of them commits suicide once the program ends
it’s so strange
what d’you think about all of these fatalities?
I know what it means

You’re in a crossroad sealing a deal

You will never get your spirit back
They hold your body and your mind
Choose between honour and delight
but you will never backtrack

You’ve taken your decision
Now you must ask permission
To live your life the way you want
It’s like a modern devil
Who enjoys this media revel
A death game that no one has won
You wanna escape
And run away

You will never get your spirit back
They hold your body and your mind
Choose between honour and delight
but you will never backtrack
