Biography

Searching For Skylines, which consists of Sean "Shamus" McCabe
(Vocals, Guitar), Damon Kost (guitar), Kyle
Roeger (Bass, vocals) and Tom Simmons (drums), was formed in late 2005
when Poughkeepsie, NY Power-pop band, Juniper, split ways with their
guitar player, moved former singer (Manfredo) to guitar and making way
for current vocalist (McCabe). Searching For Skylines quickly started
writing recorded their first five self-produced demos and trudged
their way back into the tough Poughkeepsie scene, where they quickly
made fans and fellow bands forget the Juniper name.

Searching For Skylines has been selected to
play the Ernie Ball Stage on the 2006 Warped Tour in Long Island, NY.
That same week the band was the number one played band on
PureVolume.com, a feat they have repeated one time since. In the bands
short history they have been privileged enough to share the stage with
such national acts as Chiodos, Bayside, The Sleeping, Envy On The
Coast, Matchbook Romance, Just Surrender and Trust Company (this does not
include all the amazing bands of the '06 Warped Tour).

Strange As Angels

Strange As Angels

Tomorrow's here return your words
Fight the urge and find yourself

We could last another day
Freedom's found so kill the pain

If you could go back
And change the words you said
Would it make a difference
Or would it stay the same?

SHOUT, SHOUT, SHOUT
Tell me what you're all about
I'm all ears I'm not going out tonight (not going out tonight)
Maybe I'm crazy baby
WHAT, WHAT, WHAT
Tell me what you really want
I'm all ears I'm not going out tonight (not going out tonight)
Maybe I'm crazy baby

Don't look back just walk away
Tossed aside and lost in vain

If you could go back
And change the words you said
Would it make a difference
Or would it stay the same?

SHOUT, SHOUT, SHOUT
Tell me what you're all about
I'm all ears I'm not going out tonight (not going out tonight)
Maybe I'm crazy baby
WHAT, WHAT, WHAT
Tell me what you really want
I'm all ears I'm not going out tonight (not going out tonight)

Maybe I'm crazy, Maybe I'm lonely, And I'm burning up inside (3x)

SHOUT, SHOUT, SHOUT
Tell me what you're all about
I'm all ears I'm not going out tonight (not going out tonight)
Maybe I'm crazy baby

WHAT, WHAT, WHAT
Tell me what you really want
I'm all ears I'm not going out tonight (not going out tonight)
Maybe I'm crazy baby

Maybe I'm crazy, Maybe I'm lonely, and I'm burning up inside
(Will I ever know the reason no I'll never know the reason)

Anticipatient

When I look up to the stars
What are you searching for?
The answers to life or UFOs
Secrets to questions that nobody knows

Because I
Ill never be the one; Ill never be the one
Erase the scars of yesterday
In a different world in a different time today

I cant breathe the air tonight its cold and burns my lungs
Cause we were brave when we were kids and young
What do you want me to say?
That everything is going to be okay
Yeah ok

I wont stop until I find you
Even if you break my poise
Ill get back up and find another way

When will it be our time x2
But I know there will be another day

I cant breathe the air tonight its cold and burns my lungs
Cause we were brave when we were kids and young
What do you want me to say?
That everything is going to be okay
Yeah ok

Woah x like 10

Fangs Do You Justice

Written By: Searching For Skylines

Fangs Do You Justice

Pain is shooting straight through my soul
Demons dancing on you all night long

Wake up wake down, your going down, down, down
Interrupt the senses and fly through the crowd

Save me from me
Save me from me, save me from me
Because I can take the angst

No I can't control myself
No I can't control myself tonight

It's about to get ugly
Women and children please head for the door
Love's all we've got in this world
What else is worth fighting for?

Take action now (take action now)
Ask questions later
Stab me in the back
Oh what's your favorite flavor?

Save me from me
Save me from me, save me from me
Because I can take the angst

No I can't control myself
No I can't control myself tonight

Do you mean the words you say?
I've made mistakes and I'm suffering from all of the consequences
Do you feel the way I do?
Don't lie to yourself it will only hurt more in the end
Don't lie to yourself it will only hurt more in the end
Don't LIE TO YOURSELF

Save me from me
Save me from me, save me from me
Cause I can take the angst

No I can't control myself (4x)

Re-Occurring Truth

Written By: Searching For Skylines

Reoccuring Truth

It's a battle in my mind
And it happens all the time
They tell me what to do
And I know that I should too x2

Ideas and thoughts that spark a flame
Why do we keep playing this game
Friendship, lies, feelings, friends
In the end it's not the end for you
It can come true
It makes me feel unique

Don't let go x2

The problem that persists
Is that my heart likes to resist
Temptations in my mind
And it happens all the time x2

Ideas and thoughts that spark a flame
Why do we keep playing this game
Friendship, lies, feelings, friends
In the end it's not the end for you
It can come true
It makes me feel unique

And I can't keep running
No I can't keep running

Everything that you need oh baby
Don't let go
Everyting that you breath oh baby
Don't let go
Everything that you need oh baby
Don't let go
Everything that you bleed oh baby
Don't let go tonight
Because everyting feels so right

Ideas and thoughts that spark a flame
Why do we keep playing this game
Friendship, lies, feelings, friends
In the end it's not the end for you
It can come true
It makes me feel unique

Don't let go x2
