Spaceships and Dreamers Part One
Mirror Piece Entertainment has been busy with christopher ANTON since 2008. The independent entertainment company has had much success with the former Information Society singer turned solo. Mirror Piece Records is now moving forward with a new christopher ANTON music release and an extensive summer US tour.
'Spaceships and Dreamers' is a three part endeavor inspired by what Anton himself describes as “songs about choosing to look at the positive in everything” The aesthetic theme of the release pays homage to the classic science fiction serial films of the 1930s and 40's, such as Flash Gordon, and Buck Rogers.
The first single from the album entitled “Tonight” describes turning a sour relationship into something positive beneath it's metaphors of space travel missions. The song “In Silence” is a nod to the classic freestyle song “Running”, one of Anton's band's (Information Society) hits. In Anton's words “In Silence is, among other things, a deliberate continuation of the dialog of Running...I wanted to take it full circle into what might have happened with the story in a modern context.”
Part one of the 'Spaceships and Dreamers' release is an effort that christopher ANTON promises to be positive themed synth pop. “I'm very much looking at my current music with an intention to help others.” and added “This is about making a positive contribution at this point”
Nick James, who also produced Anton's 2010 release 'Destination: X' has produced the majority of the new album, and Donna Jean returns as a crucial part of the Anton band.

Two of the tracks “Daytime for Dreamers” and “Behind the Sun” are produced by John von Ahlen of Parralox. Daytime for Dreamers features a guest appearance by Houston hip hop artist Drastic Vango. Spaceships is slated for physical CD release in early July 2012, and will first be available here at www.christopheranton.bandcamp.com

Track Name: In Silence
I see your twisted heart is turning back to where you were before
I know I need you now when everything inside has lost control
Come back to me
You are everything
Why can't you see this is where you need to be

In silence, in darkness
Without provisions on us
Forgive me, be with me now
Forever here in silence

I found you in the rain with all the lies we've tried to use before
I know that love will last
This is our chance to prove ourselves once more

Come back to me
You are everything
Why can't you see this is where you need to be

In silence, in darkness
Without provisions on us
Forgive me, be with me now
Forever here in silence
Track Name: Tonight
Flying past me in your spaceship
Wishing I could touch your sky
Everything you thought you needed
Is just a figment of your mind

Take a trip with me
I'll give you everything
Nothing's quite the same
without you near me tonight

Jupiter was not your mission
You had to find the will to fly
You only need to find a reason
Until you have the will to try

Take a trip with me
I'll give you everything
Nothing's quite the same
without you near me
In silence, in darkness
Voices calling me
Nothing's quite the same
Now you're near me tonight
Track Name: Daytime for Dreamers
This is our world my friends
It's daytime for dreamers

Don't be down in the world
Take what you have and make it real
All that you feel
Don't get down in the world
Take it in your hands
With all you feel and make it real

It's time to rise again
It's daytime for dreamers
This is our world my friends
It's daytime for dreamers

Find your place in the world
Change what you can
Don't stray too far from what you are
Don't be blind to the world
Take a fighting chance
Face your fear and make it clear

It's time to rise again...
Track Name: Behind the Sun
I am here and you are helpless endlessly inside
Focused on what's never right
I am cancelled out, removed, deleted from your mind
Confused by something that you'll never find

Everyday is left undone when I hide behind the sun
On a perfect day I'll run away from everyone
I am cold behind the sun waiting for what's next to come
Staring backward at what seems to be complete

You're asleep when I am hopeless and awake inside
Channeling the parasites
I can't breath, I'm drained, I hate this point of view
I'm here, diseased

Everyday is left undone when I hide behind the sun
On a perfect day I'll run away from everyone
I am cold behind the sun waiting for what's next to come
Staring backward at what seems to be complete

I am complete
