about

The Quiet City Screams Boston, Massachusetts

The Quiet City Screams is Pop Punk band from Boston, MA that originated at the end of 2009.

Growing up listening to such bands as New Found Glory, Blink 182, and Jimmy Eat World, they wanted to capture the energy and spirit these bands had as well as the emotion. Up beat tempos, catchy sing a longs, and a heart on your sleeve attitude have become the corner stones of the band.

Track Name: Restless
It’s been a disappointing year, to say the least.
So much to accomplish met with so much defeat.
And now I stare out a window to a world I barely know,
The reflection off the glass only carries a glimpse of ambition.

An awakening To find I've spent more time
Dreaming life than living Accepting the writing on the wall
As a sign of change The break this path This trap of mediocrity

And so I sit restless And wondering
If the grass is always greener Or if there is something bigger
Waiting for me on the other side of these walls On the other side

With more behind me Than in front of me Another year fades with fall
And resolution mocked with winters cold breath I place my foot out the door And take that first step.

In this breath I feel more alive Than I have ever felt In my entire life.
And now I see The world As how it was meant to be.
Track Name: Grow
Take these words off the screen
And let me be your inspiration.
I know life is a mess
But I’ll send you love and light.

To lead you through the coming storm.
So chase the sunrise,
Or head out west and leave your memories
Buried in the snow.

I know it’s hard to place trust in
Wandering hearts.
When dreams carry us east
And no longer follow feat
We discover the depths of our soul.

The first step is the hardest
And often feels the furthest
Setting sail on courses unknown.
Send a kiss to the Midwest for good luck
So we part on good terms in case I return
It’s time to spread my wings,
It’s time to grow
And leave this place I call home.

I know it’s hard to place trust in
Wandering hearts.
When dreams carry us east
And no longer follow feat
We discover the depths of our soul.

You’re breathing now
After years of being let down
You finally made it through
They this is progress
Letting the past
Fall beneath the bridges

Built to forget.
You’re breathing now
After years of being let down
You finally made it through.
You’re breathing now
After years of being let down
You finally made it through.
Track Name: Escape
I’m so tired but I can’t sleep
With thoughts of him right by your side
I can’t stop can’t turn it off
I just can’t escape these thoughts
Don’t let me slip down the path
The one where I relapse
To the past I locked inside
I locked inside

I’m insatiable but I won’t
Settle for less than what I know
A new mentality within
My own mind
I try to escape to the right
But the monsters inside
Are way too frightful to bear.
(I run, I run)

It’s taken fifteen years to understand
What was and what should have been.
When you close your eyes
I hope you toss and turn
Thinking of me

I’m insatiable but I won’t
Settle for less than what I know
A new mentality within
My own mind
I try to escape to the right
But the monsters inside
Are way too frightful to bear.
( I run, I run)

Let’s take it back
To the start where
Everything looks good from here
Let’s take it back
To the start where
Everything looks good from here
(where the clouds cover the lives we leave behind)
the lives we leave behind

I’m insatiable but I won’t
Settle for less than what I know
A new mentality within
My own mind
I try to escape to the right
But the monsters inside
Are way too frightful to bear.
(I run, I run)
Track Name: Sleep Alone
Today I woke with the sunrise
Constant fears keep me alive
But I never know the truth
Light strikes across the bridge like fires.

Reminding me of Ipswich Street
And train rides through the darkest nights.
Drunken words break the mold of who we are.
My mind is gone to my own safe space,
And here I stay.

You stood in that doorway
Watching me walk away.
With your lips sealed
Hiding that whisper
Knowing don’t go
Is all it would take.

Boarded windows and broken TVs
Leave me defenseless against
The boredom that overwhelms me.
And I’ll be gone,
I’ll be gone before you leave
Like the sunrise in the rear view.

Not a day goes by
That I don’t wish
For what could have been.
If we had only known
Where we were headed
We could have taken the same way home,
Instead of sleeping alone.

Bring me back
I’m so tired of sleeping alone (bring me back)
Track Name: All I Need
Forgive me I’ve been gone for way too long
Trying to find my own way home.
Farewells rang louder than lullabies
On each night I was missing from your side.
You said take it slow, But I had to go. I had to go.

So close your eyes
Rest so easy now
Fill this space between
Cuz you’re all I need.

I travel miles and miles
Seeking the one thing I’ve left behind
It’s your love, embrace
The smile on your face.
All I want is here with you.

So close your eyes
Rest so easy now
Fill this space between
Cuz you’re all I need.
You’re all I need,
You’re all I need.

I'm here with you.
I'm here with you

So close your eyes (not a lot left to say)
Rest so easy now (nothing in our way)
Fill this space between (I’ve fallen for you)
Cuz you’re all I need (Baby you know its true)

So close your eyes
Rest so easy now
Fill this space between
Cuz you’re all I need
Track Name: To Write Love In The Sky
Take comfort that
Each night I gaze
At the same stars
That cover your head while you rest
And know For each moment
We’re apart, my heart grows.

No distance will diminish my love.
The seeds we planted five years ago
Continue to blossom in this delicate balance
Met with such intensity.

I hope this lullaby I sing to you
Will reach by morning
And with each syllable
I’ll write love in the sky
Forever for the world to see

She hangs her head
Heavy heart.
Please smile for me.
No more sad songs,
Just three more words
And you and I’ve got
A sing-a-long
So sing for me.

Light escapes from the flame
But I’ll stay here
I’ll keep you warm
I’ll keep you safe.
Though the night fades out
This memory remains.

I hope this lullaby I sing to you
Will reach by morning
And with each syllable
I’ll write love in the sky
Forever for the world to see

For all the things I left behind
And all the nights we kept inside
I’m forever lost in those eyes

Just don’t give up
I won’t let you give up.

So this is my story
Of life and love
Of tears and joy
And all the above
She’s my angel
But my devilish side is
Self-destructive and always seems to win.

And now we lay our heads in separate lives
But I’ll always write love in the sky,
Love in the sky.
Love in the sky.

So this is my story
So this is my

So this is my story
Of life and love
Of tears and joy
And all the above
But I’ll always write love in the sky
Forever for the world to see.
