Spiritual Rock Band

Two Worlds by Visioneers
Music and Lyrics by Serguey Shinder


Verse One:

Summer sunsets, misty dawns

The forest and the sea

There is always space on Earth

For every grass and tree

See the eagle in the sky

And underneath his wings

There’s a world in endless love

That lives in harmony

First Chorus:

We’re given this world

To love and to share

To find out the meaning of our lives

All nature exists

In giving and peace,

The law of eternal love

Verse Two:

Life is passing day by day

There’s nothing you can seize.

Catch your dream and it will fade

Speak out and words will freeze

Once again this endless race

To chase illusive dreams

Threads of destiny will make

The puzzle pieces fit

Second Chorus:

We’re given this world

To love and to share

To find out the meaning of our lives

Let voice of your heart

Lead you through the dark

To find out the law of life

Third Chorus:

We’re given this world

To love and to share

To find out the meaning of our lives

Let voice of your heart

Lead you through the dark

To find out the law of life

  1. The world needs your vision more than ever for people to realize that the earth is a gift to share and not to hoard for selfishness, greed, and the urge to use its resources to make war on others.
    Thank you for your wonderful words and music.

  2. Thanks Doug! We really appreciate your comment. Please, stay tuned for our next song that is coming up soon.

  3. didn’t like it at all…cheesy, cheesy, cheesy. The recording quality is crap as well. It seems like you’re trying too hard.

  4. Whoa! The 80,s it’s not boyz. You need a producer to do some weeding out of parts and to do some re-arrangment. I heard a bridge and you did not have one listed as a bridge, but rather a chorus.
    Too much jape on the mix ie: reverb, guitar sounds and style are of yesterday…….I’d give you a B minus for effort, and a D minus for over looking these very important issues. Don’t believe me? Give it to an A&R guy and you will in awarding him with a new frizbee

  5. Joey Bag.., guitar sounds and style are classical.. and classic is out of time
    Don’t read the lyrics but feel deeply

  6. Very 80’s. I like the guitars. The Lyrics are okay if you are playing as background music for a “Save the Earth” documentary or infomercial. I just can’t see this song playing on the radio at all. Keep trying guys, you’ll get it. I kind of agree with Joey, there needs to be a little more professional influence, ie; a good producer.

  7. Guys, thanks to all for your feedbacks either positive or negative! Mike – the lyrics are not “Save the Earth” – look deeper… The world is what you feel, and your reality can be changed…

  8. Angel, thank you so much for your invitation. We will definately consider it. We’ll keep in touch. Visit us periodically for more music.

  9. Serguey,

    Twice I have visited your site, and both times my heart feels your loneliness and longing for wholeness…to be whole is to be Holy and Peter was asked by Jesus it he too was going to leave him and go away when the soldiers came to get him, Peter said “Lord, to whom shall I go, You have the words of eternal life and I have believed and come to know that You are the Holy One of God”

    I too, know him and everytime I say I am leaving, and he says ok, and I leave and come back as empty as ever, He never puts me down, just says follow me and I will make you a fisher of men…and i follow… every step I take, in His direction, I become like him and get to share his wholeness, and when I leave this body and see him face to face, in Spirit and Truth, I will be like him….

    It is the most exciting adventure…come, join me…follow Him. At least take an honest look for yourself…take a look at Jesus and tell me what you see, a man whose life was wasted or a man whose life is free…and, if you’re really honest, i know what you will say…This is the Living Son Of God! Remember me this day…

    love to you…in christ, verne

  10. Verne hi, there are things which are above any religion, beleif or race. There are eternal and precise laws that operate our Universe. Anyone can discover these laws by asking a simple question – what am I living for? And if this question is really important for you then the new reality becomes uncovered step by step…

  11. great song…sounds like Scorpions. Too good to really criticize…but I’d ‘take it down’ somewhere, really low then blast a guitar solo for a crescendo/high…and tingle the spine. good luck

  12. I enjoyed your song. I agree with Doug’s comments above. I appreciate your spiritual approach and its nice to hear songs about sex, violence, etc.

  13. ADDENDUM TO ABOVE COMMENT–I actuall meant that it is nice to NOT hear songs about sex, violence etc. The word NOT makes a bit difference.

  14. I enjoyed the music. But to be honest, the vocals completely killed the song for me. The lyrics were poorly written in my opinion. And the vocal tone and range sound like something Trey Parker and Matt stone threw together. Good luck with everything. And once again, this is just my opinion.

  15. I like the song.

    Vocalist quite good.Reminds me of a young Jack Bruce from the band “Cream”.

    Keep up the good work.

  16. Could have thought of any feedback, BUT “gay” is something we have obviously never thought of… Thanks anyway.

  17. just wondering…..are you a gay pride band? The music certainly sounds like something you’d here at a gay pride festival. not trying to be rude, just wondering and trying to be honest.

    jeff

  18. Well, never been to the gay pride festival.Β  Have you?? πŸ™‚

    We are a spiritual rock band.

  19. well, I could go either way with it. The production is fine, don’t listen to the nay sayers. All the great production in the world won’t make a bad song good, and vice versa. Just listen to the Beatles, mistakes everywhere….who cares? I don’t….I like raw music. As far as the message, too heavy for me. I guess it depends on what you are trying to do. I have played for a long time, in a lot of things. I have played Easter mass at Notre Dame, and pool parties, and on tours, and the biggest stages on the east coast. Again, who cares ? It’s not about ME, it’s about the audience. You are there for the audience, they aren’t there for you. Don’t forget that, or you’re doomed. Regardless, it’s obviously accomplished musically, but I’m not a big fan of the gut wrenching lyrics. Already too many reasons to be sad in this world. Most people have enough questions in life, try to give them an answer for a change.

  20. Not bad. Instrumentation sounds very good, lyrics are quite hackish, and the song itself is somewhat overwraught. But really not bad. Probably just needs more time.

  21. As a professional recording musician guitarist. We all have to start somewhere guys.The song does need some work and its more 80s for sure.Musically I enjoyed it as well as for vocals.I did get lost in the Lyrics but great effort and continue your Dream. Best Wishes

  22. Thanks to all.
    I want to tell you guys a bit about the project.
    Well… Let me start.

    The name Visioneers comes from The Vision Engineers. So we’re trying to engineer our future vision:)
    You know, people get born, then go to school, make a carreer, and then give birth to their children… And their children do the same stuff and then die…
    Why? What are we living for?

    You know, there are laws. A law of gravity, for example. Our whole Universe is governed by laws, but there are some laws we haven’t discovered yet. It doesn’t mean they don’t exist. We just haven’t discovered them. If we knew these laws and we knew how we could make a good use of them, then we would see that the reality would start to change… The reality is what we feel… Then it can be changed…
    So, we do try to offer a solution in our next song! So, stay tuned!
    And again, thanks to all for your comments, we really appreciate them!

  23. Lyrics:
    It is beyond me how your lyrics are actually professing to have a grasp of something well beyond the scope of humanity.
    Reality is not “what you feel”
    That is just wrong.
    Also your pretention in offering a solution on your next song is insanity.
    Humanity cannot know only speculate.
    “We see through the glass darkly”
    Your theories should never have been put forth as fact.
    Perhaps if you put your philosopy out as the mere theory it is instead of a factual statement it may be recieved better by those your tring to reach.
    I thought it a bit arrogant on your behalf.

    The music is played excellently but is dated.
    Update your music and rethink your lyrical concept.
    I do think that you have the spark of some good ideas but they need maturing.
    Thank you for this venue to talk about your song.
    I hope that my critisisms were not recieved to be harsh that was not my intent.

    Thanks for your allowing this format to speak about your song.

    Darryl

  24. Darryl thanks…
    So, you tell me then what is the reality – is that something on the outside or something you perceive by your 5 senses?

  25. The song is good for a first group effort. I’m hoping you guys have something that has more teeth. Clearly you are all gifted musicians and your vocalist has an incredible voice. It did in fact sound a bit like Styx meeds scorpions meets Michael W.Smith. And while that may sound like a compliment, it’s not. Success for a group is defined by their own unique sound, not by facsimilies. Honestly I couldnt tell if this was some attempt at a christian band effort or a greenpeace anthem.

  26. yes I like it πŸ™‚
    You’ve done good job on it, though it sounds a bit like Scorpions but so what?!
    the most important thing is to follow our dreams ! and You guys seem to do it πŸ™‚

    poka
    Scot

  27. My impressions are humbly noted, as a fellow musician/songwriter/studio guy:
    The writing is solid; as is the musicianship, arrangement and production values (not to mention that Jesus rocks and RULEZ, baby)))
    …can’t wait to hear more…Filk

  28. Bleem Flk – Serguey doesn’t know Jesus, and doesn’t want to know him… but he wants to know or claims to know, “The Law”, “It”,the great universal “truth” above and beyond everything of the universe. Wisdom that has been “hidden for thousands of years”, but now is being revealed, and he is going to bring us all to an understanding of that power thru this music…ask yourself Bleem…what is the “meaning of your life?”…

  29. Well…. I will try to tell you through music what I want to tell, and it is after all up to you guys to decide whether it’s crap or not πŸ™‚ The freedom of will – remember? πŸ™‚

  30. just kidding everybody…don’t freak…I like the music and am greatful someone has the courage to try to move mankind in a positive direction…anything to turn the eyes of men off of ourselves as the center of the universe to a power greater than ourselves, I say is a step in the right direction….

  31. WOW!!!!!! I think the music is wonderful, it is still firmly sitting in my head after listening to the song few times. The words really make you think if you listen to them carefully.
    I LOVE IT!!!! Hope it’s a big hit!!!!!!

  32. super my friend serguey – great idea!this is the most important thing to do – get the world spiritualized – means – really knowing the difference between egoism and altruism!

  33. A good start but as one poster said, the arrangement needs some tweaking because it just didn’t flow in some places.

    Also, the vocals. Your vocalist needs to add some “soul” to the lyrics a.k.a. like a Chris Daughtry or Scott Stapp style.

  34. I look forward to hearing more, the lyrics blend well with the music and give you a feeling of peace. Music should make you feel something and thats exactly what I got from that song. The blend of their voices and the music were perfect and I enjoyed the song very much.

  35. Hats off to you three. Fear will have those argue Love’s work here on the planet. Keep true to the form of Love and each one inside will conquer fear. Deepak touches on it but we must remember Love is first how we live in ourselves and it is true that our “reality” is within us! Fear will have Darryl speak such things like “Humanity cannot know”…All is possible where Love is concerned.

  36. Loved the song, but most of all I love the idea of lettin the voice of your heart out. So many things go unsaid because people are afraid to go against the main stream.

  37. First off someone said the recording quality is crap, that is not true, its a fine demo. Its not major label quality, but gets the song across nicely. There is alot of potential here. The problem is, the lyrics are so vague, that 1 minute into the song, the listener doesnt care what the song is about. I was waiting for the Yngvie Malmsteen guitar solo, but I give you my sincere thanks for not putting one in the song. Dont ever think that chops alone will get you signed to a major. Dont ever think that getting signed to a major is when all your troubles are over. Most of the time, its when they begin. Good luck to guys in your quest for musical success. Get a good manager if you cannot do a good job managing yourselves. Take everyones opinions with a grain of salt, and keep moving forward, and never look back. Try to find a producer that has a good track record, and let him/her get the best out of what you already have. Good luck!!!

  38. You guys have a lot of learning to do before you will make it anywhere with this garbage from the eighties. Why dont you try bringing these lyrics to todays sounds and styles, make it worthwhile to listen to.

  39. I might be 1 in a million, but I believe in good music and good people. You have the talent and the ability to apeal to the masses. You should be able to integrate your style with your message to apeal ANY listener. That is the idea I would give.I give much luv, and my wish that you can reach everyone with music diversity, talent, and originality.
    ABLEIZE EVERYONE TO HERE YOUR STORY!!!!!

  40. Anyway fellas, to me it seems like you need a producer not a Promoter.Good message, no audiance. Respond if your intrested.

  41. STYX!! That’s what happened to them!!! Just kidding! You guys need a producer and a Green Peace concert or gig but potential is there. Needs work. A Good producer would do good for you.

  42. Nice work — you accomplished a lot together. I appreciate your positive attitude foremost, sense of freedom and good purpose. Keep it up.

    Feedback:

    Composition:
    a) minimize diminished chords; gothic and predictable. trade dim chords for jazz chords like Emaj(flat 9th) or C9(flat 5th)
    b) don’t always resolve chords to root chord; like dim to its minor. ie, major 6th is useful.
    c) where is the bass? explore thirds in bass for tension. think hard bringing out melody in bass. some people only listen to bass.

    Production:
    b) Try double or triple the vocals for a powerful chorus line.

    Guitar work is good. Include chopped grunge chords, as well as clear harmonics.

    Drums are ok, production issues: need to think more about spaciality — nearness and farness: close tight toms, as well as deepened reverbed base drums. Open and close space to support lyrics.

    Lyrics: simplify lyrics, this is not an essay; drain till it’s meat, and add more music for listener to ponder over. double meanings and irony are still very cool to introduce main point.

    Marketing: try indie911.com and myspace.com.

    You are welcome to contact me for ideas, words, music, etc.

  43. HyperVista, thanks for your very detailed comments and offering an option of contacting you. We do really appreciate that. BTW. The new song will be out hopefully in several days time. So, please, stay tuned…

  44. Not bad easy listening music,nice lyrics, although the tune needs more polishing, I hope you make it, but its a rough busness to be in.

  45. Most excellent. Good music, good message. Long life to your band and much prosperity to your effort.

    Keep on making more. You will do more good than you know.

  46. All, thanks for your support!
    I know we’ve promised a new song, and it’s on its way! We need to brush it up a bit soundwise, so, please, stay tuned, it will finally come out soon!

  47. WOW, Guys, absolutely phenomenal…

    Great job; really exceedingly unbelievably great!!

    I would really like to try and get you guys some exposure in the Los Angeles market…

  48. Absolutely… I liked it alot. Especially enjoyed the music.. and I thought it was great vocalization. Would be happy to hear it on radio… is a bit reminiscent of Scorpions as someone mentioned ..but so what.. always liked them too… cheers and good luck.

  49. Hello,

    i’d like to see how this song turns out on a live concert… Post a video… and update your info @ Last.fm.

    All the luck for you

  50. Truely awesome! God has blessed you all! Praise God!I really enjoy Press Play from the LA Dream Center! You all have alot of true talent! I played the violin since 4 years old! I love all talent! God bless and you all are in my prayers and thoughts!

  51. I am not a musician and can’t offer technical comments. However, I thought it was a good effort. Something kept me listening, the soulfulness.

    I suggest keeping the lyrics more simple and direct. I like the basic message but thought you used too many words.

    The homophobia comments above should be ignored. The world needs male musicians willing to express feelings other than raw sexual desire for women.

    Keep at it. You are on the right track.

  52. Well, Good voices, decent lyrics but Two Worlds by Visioneers is way over produced I think unless it’s for a stage production. I need to get in tune with music in the NE and this is a good opening act.

  53. not to be harsh… but it sounds REALLY cheezy. i mean, your musicianship is spot on (except a couple spots where the drummer adds in some unnecessary double-bass fills and such to remind us “he’s still here”). but yeah, it’s cheezy and dated and it sounds REALLY desperate. it reeks of “local band”. not sure what you are trying to do with your music, but if you are trying to get famous or something, you’re gonna need an overhaul in the “hipness” department. sorry bros.

  54. Thanks for your honest comments, everyone. It’s sad but i will no longer be singing in this project. I’m planning my own project so if you like my voice then you will probably hear me again later! And to Visioneers i wish all the best! Bring your ideas further on. Keep rocking, guys!

  55. I do not agree with the “cheezy” comments. It is a matter of taste, not everyone wants “hipness” as some call it. I think you have something to offer, and I hope you get it back together.

    Best of luck.

  56. Better than I was expecting, after reading all the negative comments. You can’t please everyone, that’s for sure and I know this from my own music. The song could, in my opinion, be much stronger if it was arranged differently and the melody was enhanced, especially in the chorus. It would be good to have a hook in the song that people could easily remember. I wish you all the best in your future projects.

    Pete
