Incorporating elements from Rock N Roll's past, present & future to create a sound that is unique, but firmly rooted in Punk Rock. The 29th Street Disciples are a high energy blast of music looking forward to new rock terrain & sonic territories.

Biography

We are the result of hard living and bad luck. Eli and Justin, the only original members, met via myspace after Eli had put an add up "Looking For Punk Rock Drummer." After a series of line up changes, the band got their shit together and recorded their first album in 2009. The album is a mixture of Hardcore punk, Westcoast punk and Eastcoast Hardcore influences. Since the album's birth the line up has changed yet again and the new songs that we're writing are starting to take a more positive approach to life. We don't write songs based on what's currently popular, nor do we try to make life sound more upbeat. We write what we feel at the time and we don't try to talk or "play" down to listeners. The most average listener can enjoy our music as well as the most "musically inclined" listener and be impressed with our music. We are the combination of a lot of experience in music and life itself.

Lyrics

A Letter To Life

Written By: disciples

What lies ahead
What lies behind
Hell only knows

Giving in to vice
And giving up on luck
And so it goes

Everyone is screaming in my face
"This too shall pass."
But whether living with hope
Or hoping life will end
I'll come in last

(chorus)
Cause I rely on everyone
To give me what I need
A tattooed
Selfish
Solace pig
You got the best of me

I hang on by a thin thread
Waiting for my "in due time"
When ambition saunters in
With failure on it's breath
I'm forced to fold
To the end of the line

(chorus)

I could choose to live my life
Sporting false piety
But I'd rather
Keep my dignity!

(chorus)

Got the best
You got the best
Got the best of me
Got the best
You got the best
Got the best of me
Got the best
You got the best
Got the best of me
Life's got the best of me

And I said..
"Hello disaster!"
When our eyes met
Forgone ambitions
I had, nothing left

I should have waited
For lust to wain
when hands are hungry for you
I can't find it
I can't turn away

(Pre-Chorus)
And you have spun your web on me
Too satisfied for apologies

I'm forever falling faster
Towards the more
And I can't seem to grasp on
What's in store

I should
Learn to leave you
Anyway I can
when hands are hungry for you
I can't fight it
I can't turn away

(pre-chorus)

(Chorus)
We fell in love
And fell apart
And tried to find
The freshest starts
And in the end it's was always you

You've caused the black
And nursed the blues
And used up all my
I hate you's!
And in the end it's been always you

I'm forever pawing at my
Soiled pride
You're forever hiding from me
What's inside

I should learn to read the writing
Written on the wall
When hand's are hungry for you
I can't fight it
I can't turn away

(Pre-Chorus)

(Chorus)

It was always you X4

"Hello disaster!"
Where have you been?
Forgone ambitions
I have nothing left

I should've waited
For lust to wain
But when
Hand's are hungry for you
I can't fight it
I can't turn away
I can't
Let you go
Cause you've
Spun your web on me

Collapse

Written By: disciples

Can't you see me
My structure veiled so thinly
In bleak landscapes
I will take my shape
And on my current path
I will unleash my wrath
Then hit the M.I.A.

The four walls are falling in
A Claustorphobic Collapse

Can't you see me
My structure veiled so thinly
My skin, a cage I can't escape

As the world walks by me
Never giving a glance
A part of me slips through my hands

(Chorus)
I'm forging on
Alone....
I guess
In misery relapse
And once again
The walls
Cave in
A claustorphobic collapse...collapse

I was destined
Always taking the fall
Hiding in the shadows of my past

Cause I was born the owner
Of a loner soul
You got the high's
I took the low's

(chorus)

Cause in my hand's
And in my head
You're all fucking dead!!!

Can't you see me
Up against the wall
It sort of suits my attitude.

If the world walks by me
I will pay it no mind
I've always walked life
A step, behind you.

The Reason

Written By: disciples

The wreckage pieces
Of my past
Bury in
Like shards of glass

I swallow shame
Like rotted fruit
Yet I've never really
Liked the taste

(Chorus)
So you can't
Hate me
Like I
Hate myself

"I wish that I could settle down"
Crosses my pursed lips again

A give and take
Relationship
Yet all I ever
Took was pain

(Chorus)

(bridge)

I suture my slit wrists
To foil my own plans
Excess to endure X2
Life's demands

From wreckage pieces
Of my past
I now know just what to expect

For every chance
At something safe
I'll greet it with
A swatting hand

(Chorus)

(bridge)

Where has my spine gone
Where has my spine gone
Where has my spine gone
Where has my spine gone

The darker the story
The sweeter the muse
The blacker the berry
I'm sweeter than you
I'm sweeter than..YOU!

Cause I'm darker than you!

When In Rome

Written By: disciples

When it burns
When it writhes
When it soaks its claws inside

When this pleasure
Is my leisure
And detox my only measure

You're in Rome!!!!!

(chorus)
When it gets too hard to say
More stopping please
When it gets too hard to say
No more anything

When it's love
When it's hate
When I'd risk the whole estate

When this pleasure
Is my leisure
And detox my only measure

When in Rome!!!!

(chorus)

(bridge)
When it burns
When it writhes
When it sinks its claws inside

When this pleasure
Is my leisure
And detox my only measure
