about

Our City Skyline Boise, Idaho

No one would ever accuse Our City Skyline of stagnation. The Boise, ID five piece puts jet-fueled momentum behind their relentless explorations of hardcore, punk and the bridges that bring genres together. The natural, flowing motion between hardcore's inborn ferocity and punk's nervous energy is just as essential to the band as the instruments themselves. ... more

Track Name: Reintroduction
Going through the motions / Itʼs the constant in our veins / the sight that keeps us breathing / the right / it is our means / let the truths we pass come to sight / fate is here to take our dreams / our right / our passion / to make what we believe / Because at times like these / I know / that itʼs here for me / Because at times like these / I know / itʼs here for me
Track Name: The Leading
We ride through our sentence / as if we’re bound to live this life / keeping record in the sounds / sealed and safe / to not be found / this is the end of everything / of dream and of passion / but I’m not worried / I’m not down / my time will surely come around / it’s so cliche / but it feels just like one big scene on the silver screen / like the curtain’s closed / and it’s time to leave / the credits roll / and I need to go / but I’ll stay awhile / don’t let it close / it’s so cliche / but it feels just like the time is now / this can’t be the closing scene / I saw this leading to a proper end / making sense of this would serve no greater point / I have to keep from thinking / there’s no truth to this / I’ve been misled / I have to keep from thinking of this again
Track Name: Promised
You said never / but I can’t feel any better / about what you promised me / not a single word that you said / but I’ve seen every side / and every little thing that you hide / not a single thing will change / or will ever be / we’ve been talking this out for awhile / and something tells me / there’s no point / to reminisce / now I know that we we're doomed right from the start / can we pretend that this isn’t the present and hide our faces until it’s done? / you say that you feel the same / like what's uncut never bleeds
Track Name: There's Something Missing
This canʼt be / whatʼs for me / I canʼt wait another day / to try to feign / to live this way / but I believe / itʼs in front of me / Itʼs all redone / just numb to become / consumed and gone / all as one / we all took part in killing this / with ease and willingness / you think that itʼs living / but youʼre really dreaming / we all took part in killing this / with ease and willingness / this canʼt be / whatʼs meant for me / itʼs plain to see / thereʼs still a way
Track Name: Bankrupt
I can’t seem to make the space that I need / to put my thoughts in place / for my head to rest / and work at peace / there’s too many words to make sense of now / but you’re all afraid / to comprehend and turn the page / when it’s all behind / everything in front can save your wasted nights / and medicate the time / but when it’s all behind / I swear there won’t be time / to save your wasted nights / and medicate your mind / bankrupt in reason / away with decision / I’m not the one / confined to position / content with illusion / I can't seem to make the space that I need / to put my thoughts in place / for my head to rest / and work at peace / but you’re all afraid / to comprehend and turn the page / I swear there won’t be time / to save your wasted nights / and medicate your mind / your blood is mine to bleed / in all we’ve become / too blind to see / I’ll close my eyes / and still believe / I’m safe within these walls I built for me
Track Name: Pure
(Instrumental)
Track Name: Inevitable
You say that Iʼm not patient / that itʼll happen either way / until tomorrow Iʼll assume / today will be the day / to fight the normality of what Iʼll become / is all that is holding me / above the setting sun / and Iʼll be the standard / when itʼs all said and done / all these people can never stop my run / I donʼt see your point / thereʼs nothing left to lose / Iʼve still got a couple doses / to forget where Iʼve come from / Itʼs obvious / that I am chosen to inherit all the fame / Itʼs never luck when you know the answers / no, Iʼm not ashamed / I swear youʼll never view me the same / bankrupt and fucked up is all part of the game / forget all the odds / youʼre all just the same / in travels / Iʼve proven / people know my name / this is the blinding / this is the lie I live / every day / the way you live is unreachable to me / itʼs all inevitable / I know itʼs all inevitable
