about

Field Trip To The Moon

is a music project created in London in 2012 by actress/singer-songwriter Angela Christofilou and guitarist Daniel G Jones (Two Way Analog/ Danny Dodge). The band released their first single 'Black Room' in 2013 and gigged in London.

In 2014 Daniel G Jones moved back to his hometown Colombia and after a one year hiatus guitarist Dan Cross joined Angela for the making of their first album 'Something Owed' featuring early material of the band along with new songs. Cross was lead guitarist of the alternative rock band The Perfect Disaster who toured with bands such as The Pixies,The Jesus and Mary Chain, Spacemen 3 and also collaborated with English space rock band Spiritualized.

'Something Owed' is our first self-funded album and was produced/ mixed by Charlie Cristiani & Martina Carluccio/ Focal Rhythm Productions.

Mastered by Nick Burchall/ Audio Animals

The band will begin touring the album in early Autumn.

Track Name: Closer to the Edge (intro)
Closer to the Edge

Riding high
We could swim in the oceans
Breaking gates we could
Fly through the skies

Riding high
We could stand on the waters
Breaking gates we would
Fly through the skies

Riding high
Riding high
Now that we are strangers
N' the gates open to the sun

We're closer to the edge
Closer to the end
Track Name: Boy Under the Sun
'Boy Under The Sun'


With madness and pain
They hide from the sun
Some will move on
But some have to run

They're fighting for flesh
In this land of sorrow
We fight for our flesh
In this house of rats

In this land of sorrow
In this land of sorrow

Let them run
Let them chase us
We'll be waiting
We'll be here

Remember when the world collapsed not so long ago
I was singing in the maze, amongst the walls, dazed
You chewed on my hands, ate from my soul
And I just sat there still and pale, staring at the hole
Lost in transition lost in paradise
For The Boy Under The Sun
The Boy Under The Sun
Track Name: Kiss Me
'Kiss Me'

Kiss me while I'm ageing
Feel the stretch of my skin
While time is changing
The money's now gone
Jimmy'll wait by the phone
Until the mood of my baby changes
We're never happy at home

We ran so fast
We ran out of love
We ran out of hope

Kiss me while I'm fading
Through the cries on the street
In a world that's changing
My baby's now gone
Jimmy'll wait by the phone
Until the mood of his wife changes
They're never happy at home

We ran so fast
We ran out of love
We ran our of hope
We ran so fast

Kiss me cause I'm breaking
Feel the cracks on my skin
While the world is raging
Jimmy's now gone
He never sat by the phone
And the mood of our life changes
We never felt at home

We ran so fast
We ran out of love
We ran our of hope
We ran so fast
Track Name: Maybe
'Maybe'

Yeah maybe I don't know why I chose him not you
I once thought I could get along with you
Yeh maybe I got too close to see
That what was good for you, was not right for me

Yeah maybe I remember what you've already forgot
Cos I'm no longer buried under your manure
When the doors to the deep dark wilds are shut
When I'm no longer in need of a clean cut cure

Yeh, maybe you mixed it all up a little too soon
Now you're so played out, there's a shadow of you
When your gaze settles down upon those you once blew
You'll quickly wonder what ever happened to you

Well maybe all your worries became my only struggle
When you walked down the street, I was the one to stumble
Yes, maybe I got to close to see
That what was good for you, was not right for me

Yes, I heard the silent rambling of a familiar word
A pointless waste of air, a promise well prepared
Well maybe I am still very much afraid to see
That what was good for you, was not right for me
Track Name: Edwarda
'Edwarda'

Edwarda
Your Madame and your lady
A pet and a treasure like your baby she was
Fatal and flawless
Edwarda

Edwarda
She read your books, smoked your cigars
Drank from your glass
N' kissed you
Like a prickly rose
Fatal and flawless
Edwarda

Hanging like a chain from your neck
Hanging like a chain from your neck
Hanging like a chain from your neck
Hangind like a chain

As if there are no clear skies or doors ahead
We fear the people as much as we praise the dead
Remembering our fathers and the legends of the past
I wonder for how long this oblivious game will last

Edwarda
Edwarda
Track Name: Something Owed
'Something Owed'

You say you're never coming back
Cos you know you’ll never leave
You say that time can't touch you
But the Clocks are tugging at your sleeve

You say it's written in the cards
But the dealers are the only ones who see
You say fate will protect you
N' you bear mute witness to all your deeds

You want to wander aimless
But the grooves are too well worn
You want to play with blindfolds
But the paths are full of thorns

You think you've got the answers
Yet there's a question always on your lips
You say you know of no black sails
But you travel on Cretan ships

You think you're everyone's desire
But you got no place to go
You want to make it quickly
But the world itself turns slow

You make out its all easy
That it’s just a child’s game
You think that something’s owed
But really we’re the ones to blame
Track Name: You
You

I sense you here, you're just around the corner
I know you are about when I cannot breath
But if you're gonna hang on, then I better warn ya
I don't think I've got the guts to leave

I wanna know why it can't be you instead of me?

Oh I hid from you, and your bag of tricksters
So that you could find someone else to fleece
But inside of your bag was your lucky hipster
N' I was so well hid that he had eyes only for me

I wanna know why it can't be you instead of me?

Yes your selfish giant, he called in the co-ops
Through Parisian streets he shadowed me
I made it to the bridge, but there was no way a-cross
As you know, your lovers stuffed it full of leaves

I thought this game was for me, but it's just a puppet
It plays on strings and laughs at me
So I hang right there, yes you want me to lump it
N' stroke your back 'till you're bored of me

I wanna know why it can't be you instead of me?

Your lone-white-ranger, he sits on horse-back
Under his arms are wedged the boughs of a golden tree
But to work amongst his trades I would have to be a-jack
And find wooden stumps, for my knees

Well, I can't rest here in this hole that you dug
It's rumoured it was carved just for me
But to exist here I have to live amongst your bed-bugs
Then again, you always preached that nothing in life is free
Track Name: Billy
'Billy'

Billy had no help , Billy never had no love
Did you ever hear that Billy ran away from home?
The boy in the creek bed
Nobody left him alone

Billy had no home, Billy never had no love
Have you seen him around?
The boy with the dartboard
Everyone left him alone

He don’t wanna live
And he’s gonna leave
He don’t wanna live
And he’s gonna leave any-day , anyway

Billy had no hope , Billy had no love
Did you ever hear that Billy had no friends at all?
The boy in the corner
Nobody cared at all

Billy had no help, Billy had no love
Have you seen him around?
The boy with the dartboard
Everyone left him alone

He don’t wanna live
And he’s gonna leave
He don’t wanna live
N' he’s gonna leave any day, anyway
Track Name: Someone to Dance with
'Someone to Dance With'

He needed someone to dance with
Anyone to dance with
And his eyes burnt
As he danced, he danced, he danced

He needed someone to talk to
Any stranger to talk to
And when he found her
His heart burned, it burned, it burned


What you done to my baby
I watch you dance with my baby
What you done to my baby
I wanna dance with my baby
Track Name: Ballerina Blues
'Ballerina Blues'


A cold country, a long road
Hot night, incestuous groove
Your killer look, her virgin moves
Her feet cursed
As she danced your tune
But since she confessed her love to you
Has anyone seen ballerina blue?


Through the darkness, beneath the storm
A fatal pose, until the afternoon
Her indoor prayers, your outside school
Her hands blessed
As she played your tune
But since she confessed her love to you
Has anyone seen ballerina blue?
Track Name: F Waltz
'F waltz'

The time to go is here
As you wait outside my door
And if you want to hang around,
I got to know what you're here for
The empty road you found such a bore
Seems flawless as the gold you once wore

Now whispers gather truth
And hint at what you forgot to do

The walls have started to crack
They reveal your true base
And all the jokers that you fooled
Now stand in your place
Your reflection it once knew you before
Now echoes like the sea against the shore

Cos there was nothing much to give
and everything to gain

The new gypsy bars the way
She will sell her rings
They once belonged to you
Now long forgotten since
Your mouth that once caressed the poor
It hangs aghast as they slam the door

Their voices bare a different point of view
That there’s only one thing you never knew

Those moments were forever
But you missed your chance
All your cohorts they have forgotten
How to dance
The faceless children who played at your feet
Now grin like an ax and they bare their teeth

And now it seems it’s all come true
There's nothing left and nothing new

Your mother she had seen it
On the wall
But you knew it all before
She had no time at all
Your father who now waves at your door
He hands you a prayer and then falls to the floor

And now there's no one left to pretend
There's no truth but the end
