A searing mix of heavy guitars, pulsing rhythms, and fierce vocals. Contour is an ode to all the dying bands of their youth, continuing to diverge into new paths of Alternative and Hard Rock where others left off.

Biography

Contour is a new and upcoming Alt/Hard Rock band based in the Greater Toronto Area. We focus on creating energentic, thought provoking music to create our own following. Contour is founded upon the principle of creating something unique and passionate without playing along to trending genres. Influenced largely from bands that started in the late 90's to early 2000's, we have watched our favourite bands die off. Contour hopes to continue on where bands like alexisonfire, thrice, system of a down and underoath left off - pushing boundaries, creating genres and fusing new forms of art and music together. In short, We make the music that we want to hear.

Lyrics

Bridges

Written By: Contour

The truth you've denied you're falling off track
You're wasting the time that you can't get back
Can't cope on your own, you're lost without your crutch
No place to call home, yeah you're out of touch

I can't
Save you from yourself
You burnt
The bridges that we've built

Denial it seems, has you feeling lost
Chasing your dreams, ignoring the costs
You take what is yours, burn the rest
Always prying for more, you're so helpless

I can't
Save you from yourself
You burnt
The bridges that we've built x 3

You're wasting your time
You're changing your mind
You're falling, you're falling, you're falling behind

You can't be changed
You can't be saved
You're fading, you're fading, you're fading away

These lessons you'll learn from your mistakes
So take the right turn before its too late
If life is a gamble lets raise the stakes
This path doesn't give it only takes

I can't
Save you from yourself
You burnt
The bridges that we've built

So with tired eyes and naive hopes
You've lost it all, up against the ropes
You're going nowhere, can't break these chains
Your mind's just as empty as the blood in your veins

I can't
Save you from yourself
You burnt
The bridges that we've built x3

You're wasting your time
You're changing your mind
You're falling, you're falling, you're falling behind

You can't be changed
You can't be saved
You're fading, you're fading, you're fading away

We're older now and we can't face it
Come up from the crowd and I swear you'll make it x 2

We'll make it out alive x 2

Seasick

Written By: Contour

Verse 1

It's hard to breathe the salty air
Exhale my lungs, the time is here
Fog rolls in and my heartbeat's clear
I'll be back next year

I set out to sea, i fall in line
Unpack my things to ease my mind
If i keep my head
I'll be fine

Prechorus 1

I'm trying hard to keep this in
The wind is getting stronger
I feel it crawl beneath my skin
I can't hold on much longer

Chorus

I can't escape this place
I've been cast away for so long
I can't see your face
and the images all blur to one

Verse 2

I catch my breath
the colour in my eyes resets
but i regress
overwhelmed with nothingness

The sky closes in
the rain falls down without hesitance
with raging winds
the water dances through the floor and then

Prechorus 2

The waves hit, my feet slip, from under me
With black skies, we capsize into the sea
I'm pulled out, I'm pushed down in this abyss
With no sound, no sight around

Chorus

I can't escape this place
I've been cast away for so long
I can't see your face
and the images all blur to one

Flying Elbow Drop

Written By: Contour

Verse 1

Your eyes turn my bones to glass
Words turn my skin to paper
I guess it's strength that I lack
That makes my world start to taper

Prechorus

I walk the streets a paper man
The rain start to sink in
I fall apart I'm tossed aside
The wind it wears my hope thin

Chorus

I bury thoughts deep within my skin
I push them down I can't let them in

Day after day

I feel the shadow grow taller
My Will's left out for the vultures

Verse 2

My Fragments now fill the streets
The Fear itself has trapped me
My thoughts spilled out for all to see
How did I become so empty

Prechorus

I walk the streets a paper man
The rain start to sink in
I fall apart I'm tossed aside
The wind it wears my hope thin

Chorus

I bury thoughts deep within my skin
I push them down I can't let them in

Day after day

Interlude

Don't write me off
I'm not finished
Don't send me off
Keep me near

Don't write me off
Cause I'm a sinner
don't push me down
Cause I'm still here

Don't write me off cause I'm not finished
Cause my head's still in repair

Don't count me out
Never count me out
Until my lungs can't keep the air
