about

"Fire inside you..desire..It's all you really are... Admit it, and you're gonna go far..." These lyrics from the the title track of Radium Hahn's first album are all you need to describe this bold and innovative new band consisting of two brothers (Will and Ted Kubaitis) who live on either side of the country. These songs deliver slyly subliminal messages designed to wake the masses by first reminding you that emotion "...is all you really are" and then declaring that revolution and evolution awaits those who are willing to accept this rather stunningly simple philosophical idea. Radium Hahn's album "Firefly" has something that most artists today lack. It has a message! Each song delivers a surprise from orchestral explosions to out of this world synthesizers, from beautiful acoustic guitar and 60's style electric piano to screaming 60's and 70's style organs. There's even a bit of African Soukous Guitar! "Firefly" was mixed at Pogo Studios in Champaign, Il under the watchful eye of Industry legend Mark Rubel and was mastered by the Legendary Recording Engineer Terry Manning at his studio in Nassau, Bahamas.

Track Name: Magic
Magic by Will Kubaitis Copyright 2011
it's not the way she does her hair
it's not the way she makes the children share
it's not the way she hides her wild side
it's not the way she let's it go when
when takes you for a ride

it's not the way she looks at you
like a diva from the stage
it's not the way she reads her book
it's not the way she turns the page

it's not the way she wakes you up
when she's lonely late at night
don't be stupid son
ain't none of that stuff is right

it's divine magic

it's not the way she feeds a stray
it's not the way she's not afraid to say
it's not the way she hides a past
that's oh so wild
it's not the way she likes to act a child

it's not the way she looks at you
like a diva from the stage
it's not the way she reads her book
it's not the way she turns the page

it's not the way she squeezes you
when she's lonely late at night
don't be stupid son
ain't none of that stuff is right

it's divine magic
Track Name: Tongue Tied
This girl what a pearl
she's a candy with a swirl
the boys can't fight
they try to bite
but this lolli bites back
and it eats the boys alive

They stumble they fall
they beg they crawl
just to gain an inch
but it's a cinch
she'll gather them up
she likes those pretty miles

And I want to talk to her
but I always always end up
sitting on the side

It's the worst
every verse is like a curse
like an itch you cant' find
and you know you can't hide

hmm she says
another boy tongue tied
and hmm she says
another boy falls off the ride

Just like a peach just out of reach
she's the apple you gave your
pretty teach

Every word that she said
like a lightning bolt to your head
from the tip of your tongue
to the bottom of your spine

hmm she says
another boy tongue tied
and hmm she says
another boy falls off the side

And She's ...Every boy's endless fascination
your fate... try to remember is the humble
servant to your imagination

When you drop your penny in a well
you'll find in life it's hard to tell
what to bet your wishes on
or even what you gonna wish upon

But your gonna find in time
it's pointless not to try
like a bird afraid to fall
because after all
there's no reason
there's no rhyme
Track Name: Four Lakes
One is for the gangs
which means it's spent on drugs
One is for your friend
whichever's spilling blood
One is for the alcohol
It dwells within the family
One is for the money
that made your wheels turn

Did I jump into the water?
did they pull me in?
when all four lakes are mixing
does it matter which your in?

Does anybody notice?
does it make a wave?
so many waves upon the water
you know that don't look safe

One is for the cops
who kept me up with their lights
One is for the kid
who fell through the ice
One is for the body
that's always floating in the night
One is for the vandals
who made their voices heard

Did I jump into the water?
did they pull me in?
when all four lakes are mixing
does it matter which your in?

Does anybody notice?
does it make a wave?
so many waves upon the water?
you know that don't look safe
Track Name: St. Martin
I can see you in St. Martin
where the sky kisses the cheek
of the ocean

It's so hard to
say good by
mother butterfly

When a blue and white knight
throws a rose to a little girl
you know she's gonna take care of that
like it's the only rose in the great big world

It won't be your last
it all ended to fast
little butterfly

I missed you in St. Martin
where the sky kisses the cheek
of the ocean

I will try to get back to that emotion
mother butterfly
Track Name: Firefly
Fire inside you
desire, it's all you really are
admit it and you're gonna go far

Revolution it's happening deep inside
and it's gonna take us all for a ride
and it could be the ride of your life

Fireflies never give away
the secret to their delight
they much prefer sending
secret messages in the night

College girl
much older than me
we're playing ghost in the graveyard
counting one two three!

She leans back and rests
her back against mine
and you know that felt fine

Fire inside you
desire it's all you really are
accept it and you're gonna go far

Evolution it's happening deep inside
and it's gonna take us all for a ride
and this could be the ride of your life

Kane and Conrad are writing their names
with fire fly light
and my little brother is scolding them
and he says,
It's not right!

Rosa's sister
much older than me
we're sitting on sanctuary
counting one two three!

She' leans back and rests
her back against mine
and you know it felt fine

Fireflies never give away
the secret to their delight
they much prefer sending
secret messages in the night

College girl
much older than me
she's out with us neighborhood kids
we're all counting one two three!

She' leans back and rests
her back against mine
and you know it felt fine
