Biography

Out of the desert Manifest Destiny uncovered comes the next big thing in post-hardcore. Sacramento's A Skylit Drive expertly blends the musical stylings of bands like Chiodos and Thursday with the layered vocals and naiive lyrics of Taking Back Sunday. A Skylit Drive's debut EP, She Watched the Sky, is at times raucus and irresponsible only to give way to introspection and self-immolation moments later. While this may be appropriate for a band so young, the spectrum of emotion displayed is remarkable. At its best it brings innovation and invention in an often times stale genre and at the very least it's promising.

Lyrics

The All Star Diaries

Written By: A Skylit Drive

Why you so, scared

I am a non worthy sinner
Still I pray for you
When will you be the star in the sky for me
All eyes on you

Sing a Song for me
Sing it till you see my face
Lay your trust in me
I'll be your remedy note

Scrambling to shut the door
Leave the cold, wanting more
Scrambling to shut the door
Leave the cold, wanting more

Embrace your mind
Set it free
Remember everything you lost

Have a seat in my car
We'll take the 99 north past three
A.M. still breathing now
I'm not leaving, why are you so scared
Recline the seat back lets drive
North till the sunrise

Why you so
I'm not leaving from this parade till I die
Why you so scared
Why you so scared
Woah
Why you so…

With your hands on me
I'll keep my eyes on you
I'll promise to me
A little secret the will pull you through.
Secret passage through the weight of the world
Woah

Why you so
I'm not leaving from this parade till I die
Why you so scared
Why you so scared
Woah

Hands at my side oh will I live or die
Will I live or die
I will be strong
This is my life
Through open eyes
This is my life
Through open eyes

Why you so scared
