Who's in Charge? Who's coming next? Be my guest Celebration of life Is reason why we are here I'm not a priest nor a saint Answer lies in between And my songs can't hurt no ears I'd like to be, I'd like to see I'd like to go there alone But this means pleasure's all mine Don't need that much Take a piece, take a slice Close your eyes And taste this fruit so divine And I say Who's in charge of this all? Next time you're there Well, I swear You will never go back It's now you temple and home To rest your legs, clear your mind We accept everyone And share all that we own I'd like to be, I'd like to see I'd like to go there alone But this means pleasure's all mine Don't need that much Take a piece, take a slice Close your eyes And change the tears into wine
She said it's time We have to go Down on the long and winding road Trial of tears and cry of love More than enough How can you dream of world to see Living from salary to salary? Down, down, down Sky meets the ground Time will pass and time will go Leaves no footprints in the snow Just traces in a fragile air And a curl of silver hair No one knows when time is right Will it bring me joy and light Or darkness and insanity? My future still belongs to me There is a place inside your head Lost and abandoned Makes me sad Beautiful childhood memories Covered with dust (They say) Learn from mistakes and it can help You better blame nobody but yourself Down, down, down Six feet under ground

It's been five years since we decided to start off a new band and name it The Grand Astoria. These years were exciting as heaven and hell both. We have played hundreds of shows all over Europe and Russia, released four LPs and few EPs. We met so many of you we can't count. And you guys are the best friends there are. Your love to our music is what keeps us touring and recording despite all the shit we have to go through being an indie band and all.
So in celebration of our 1825 days-long journey together we decided to release these two songs. On this record you won't find any wicked riffs, complicated drum solos or crazy pedal effects. These are the songs for friends, songs we would play for you by the fire. Be our guests and enjoy the quiet side of The Grand Astoria
Sincerely yours,
