about

«Love Rocket» is the name of the fresh debut LP by «Jar», Thurgovia's best Reggae band, that hits the shelves beginning of 2020. This rocket - built in cooperation with Bavarian sound specialists and Reggae musicians Florian Strober and Bernhard Fischer (The Steadytones, Judge Dread Memorial) and its journey are about coming together, about unity. About family and friends. About romance. About dancing together, laughing together and drinking beer together. About spicy intimicy. About each and every sunset that one is able to share. About loud cries for justice for minorities and our planet. And always about never forgetting to enjoy these things in the here and now. It's about not clinging too tightly and loosing sight of the most important things in life: Love and music. The more the merrier, so join us: It's gonna be a joyful ride.

Track Name: Break Your Chains
When I was a little boy my Mama told me to stay strong
No matter what they say or talk about you because they were wrong
Some years later I’m sitting here and you listen to this song
My love for you has grown my dear believe me or move along

The question of the meaning of life essentially keeps all of us alive
Moving along is like pure fuel in our veins - so break up your chains

Time flies by like a feather in the wind
No matter what they say or talk about you just keep up your chin
You grew older and so did the puppy you once got
At least you didn’t lose your humor and still hold up your grin

The question of the meaning of life essentially keeps all of us alive
Moving along is like pure fuel in our veins - so break up your chains

Passion oppressed by habits of daily life
A widespread disease in this society that is rife
But deep in your heart does still a fire glow
Like a flickering flame in the breeze starts to grow

The question of the meaning of life essentially keeps all of us alive
Moving along is like pure fuel in our veins - so break up your chains
Track Name: Green Tree
Cluster all your streets and rivers
with the waste of your consumption
Just leave it there, someone else is gonna care
This entitlement is the downfall of society
Inaction will not cause correction
and you shall be judged by your kin

Who you gonna wow with your watch and ring?
Who you gonna wow when the whole world a burning?

Take your axe and chop 'em down
I’ll stand here and watch your doom
the more you destroy the less we can repair
It’s as easy as one plus two plus three
Introspection is the human salvation
it only takes two eyes to see

Who you gonna wow with your watch and ring?
Who you gonna wow when the whole world a burning?
Track Name: Spaceport 9
Come and have a drink with me
it's long time to forget
Light a spliff and fly so high
let worries on the ground
It wasn't long ago I crashed
hard like a meteorite
from orbit on space port nine
where I recided quite a while

This is space port nine reporting
please come in and settle down
Enjoy your stay while it's lasting, neverlasting
withdrawal symptoms will be severe

My intestines taken from me
ripped right from chest
Torn into a thousand pieces
then flung in retrograde
Spreading out with time over
space and loosing gravity
Each turning into ashes
while decending down the atmosphere

This is space port nine reporting
please come in and settle down
Enjoy your stay while it's lasting, neverlasting
withdrawal symptoms will be severe

My stomach left a crater
at least ten thousand meters wide
when it came down flaming
like hot rock from the sky
Your actions turned my inside out
and left me spread all over
So I'm not sorry to tell Huston
I'm drink'n'driving this moon rover

This is space port nine reporting
please come in and settle down
Enjoy your stay while it's lasting, neverlasting
withdrawal symptoms will be severe

Love Rocket to the sky
It’s a Love Rocket that nobody can deny
Track Name: Turn Down Low
Reggae music in the morning is the sweetest thing I've ever got
Big pot of coffee in my hands and the sun is shining right on my head
Breathe in the freshness of the day and everything is gonna be alright

Turn down low, turn down low

Sweet Reggae music is just fine at any time of the day
If you're ready for the thrill drum'n’bass is gonna hit you right away
Sun shines high at noon and everything is gonna be alright

Turn down low, turn down low

How easy going life can be if you privileged enough to see
That you don't need much in the end to feel free

Turn down low, turn down low
Track Name: Live Free
Must this be the end? / The end of it all
Everything’s got to fall / some time or another
Can't tell me man / why should I bother?
Stand up and take a brother / by one arm or another

Never will there be
a better time to be free
Free of misery
do you believe me?

Must this be the end? / The end of it all
Everything’s got to fall / some time or another
Can't tell me man / why should I bother?
Stand up and take a brother / by one arm or another

Never will there be
a better time to be free
Free of misery
do you believe me?
Track Name: By My Side
I wish I could be with you girl on a cloud in heaven
Why don’t you sit by my side?

You’re so far away
No plane, no train could ever reach you
The distance is killing me
Need to feel your love right now

I wish I could be with you girl on a cloud in heaven
Why don’t you sit by my side?

This separation is not made for me
no pain no gain did once one say
so I keep on trying
til I wake up next to you

I wish I could be with you girl on a cloud in heaven
Why don’t you sit by my side?
Track Name: Casanova
Ladies and gentleman, let me introduce to you: Mr. Casanova

My name may be Casanova
I may be a ladies man
Papa told me to be humble
but I just know I broke some hearts
The mind will never know
what the heart doesn’t want it to hear
So no one will believe you
what a prick I really am

Here dances Casanova
Beware of him, beware of him
Feel your heart bleed in the rhythm of this beat
You might lose you heart, you might lose your heart girl
Feel your heart bleed in the rhythm of this beat

I walked alone in the beginning
until I found someone to be
my heart was broken in the process
help me to pick up the pieces
Get me to love you on sunday morning
I will be gone by dawn
it’s not that you don’t deserve me baby
life even breaks the most solid of rocks

Here dances Casanova
Beware of him, beware of him
Feel your heart bleed in the rhythm of this beat
You might lose you heart, you might lose your heart girl
Feel your heart bleed in the rhythm of this beat

Times are easy if you want to
hook up and grab ‘em by the ...
most don’t seem to care anymore
that happiness doesn’t stem from the ...
So my feet carry me ‘round
this industry town that I live in
looking for you to twist my mind
in all of the positive ways
I see you standing at the corner
your hair is blowing in the wind
my heart skips a beat as I wonder
where you’ve been all of this time
My name may be Casanovabut I’m now a gentle man
once you get to know the one
you never turn around

Here dances Casanova
Beware of him, beware of him
Feel your heart bleed in the rhythm of this beat
You might lose you heart, you might lose your heart girl
Feel your heart bleed in the rhythm of this beat
Track Name: Treasure
Gold sister, golden mister
underneath the sheet of leafs
cover their bodies with sand and dirt
nobody can track them down
Hard working promises to keep
ain’t easy to fulfill on them myself
traded love for money and money for love
neither made me happy alone

When do you follow that leisure is the only treasure in the world that counts?
When do you follow that you cannot measure pleasure in the way you want?

So you better keep hidden
underneath your bank of stone
keep pushing away all those who cherish
your precious gold inside
Never you lay there alone
if you don’t wish so
the world is a wonderful one to those
who let the sun shine in

When do you follow that leisure is the only treasure in the world that counts?
When do you follow that you cannot measure pleasure in the way you want?
Track Name: Guiding Light
Girl I see you
I see you through your eyes
I can't describe the feeling
rushing through my skin and thighs

Woman I see you
I see what you strive to be
Through the mountains and valleys of this world
It will be just you and me

Princess I see you
I see your beauty every time
So natural and perfect
even with no makeup you look so sublime

Oh baby keep me close
I swear I'll do right by you
Love conquers all
and so we shall yield to it

Woman I see you
I see what you strive to be
Through the mountains and valleys of this world
It will be just you and me

Princess I see you
I see your beauty every time
So natural and perfect
even with no makeup you look so sublime

Oh baby keep me close
I swear I'll do right by you
Love conquers all
and so we shall yield to it

Oh baby keep me close
I swear I'll do right by you
You are my star
You are my guiding light
Track Name: Lazy Sunday
Lazy lazy Sunday
Lazy lazy Sunday
How did I deserve you
How could I conserve you

When I woke up the other day
outside it’s raining most likely since days
haven’t noticed cause I don’t give a shit
I don’t mind at all - not a little bit

Lazy lazy Sunday
Lazy lazy Sunday
How did I deserve you
How could I conserve you

My diary is empty, says how about no plans?
I got no refutation cause my fridge is full of cans
heading from my bed to the couch and back
all that ever was completed is this simple track

Lazy lazy Sunday
Lazy lazy Sunday
How did I deserve you
How could I conserve you
Track Name: Hey You
Hey you, how was your day?
I'm just wondering if you leave or stay

Hey you, I like you and I say
too many people go
too many people go their own way

Life is too short to be alone until you die
Why don't you join me for a little while?
Don't you be a fool I don't want to marry you
I just want to be your friend and maybe not even till the end

Life is too short to be alone until you die
Why don't you join me for a little while?
Don't you be a fool I don't want to marry you
I just want to be your friend and maybe not even till the end

Hey you, how was your day?
I'm just wondering if you leave or stay

Hey you, I like you and I say
Please come along with me
on my way today
Track Name: Flawless
No I can't wait to see you again
I wanna hear your sweet voice tonight
See the sparkle in your eyes when I look at you
Feel the movements you do when you feel my skin

You're not flawless but you're perfect to me baby
perfect for the way I am
You're not flawless but you're perfect to me baby
Let's lose ourselves in the vast ocean of love

I wanna smell your odor when we're getting on
When there's goosebumps all over your body

Hear the sounds you make
Oh damn, I'm gonna go insane

You're not flawless but you're perfect to me baby
perfect for the way I am
You're not flawless but you're perfect to me baby
Let's lose ourselves in the vast ocean of love

Hear the sounds you make
Oh damn, I'm gonna go insane

You're not flawless but you're perfect to me baby
perfect for the way I am
You're not flawless but you're perfect to me baby
Let's lose ourselves in the vast ocean of love
Track Name: Shake Me Up
When I was walking down the streets last night
I saw you girl and couldn’t get you off my mind
Never saw a girl like you ever before
Everything so smooth on you – I’m knocking on your door

When I was walking down the streets last night
I saw you girl and couldn’t get you off my mind
Never saw a girl like you ever before
Everything so smooth on you – I’m knocking on your door

I wanna feel your skin on mine

You are one of a kind for sure
I got that certain feeling that you ain’t got no blur
It’s the way you move, it’s the way you groove
To this chunky rhythm –​ You’re blowing of my roof

You are one of a kind for sure
I got that certain feeling that you ain’t got no blur
It’s the way you move, it’s the way you groove
To this chunky rhythm – ​You’re blowing of my roof
