about

"Skyline" exposes the fallacies of city life and human self-importance. We rush off to work convinced we're doing something valuable. We reproduce in such extremely high numbers, numb ourselves, keep the status quo, and pretend everything is okay. We create a skyline or an "artificial horizon" of skyscrapers and pollution and ignore our real world. The thing is, all civilizations like ours fail: "skylines rise and fall, they always do."
~Sue

Skyline (lyrics)

Rushing off to work
Hustling back and forth
Pushing through the pack
Crammed inside the city

Spending time at bars
Never knowing who you are
Think that you'll go far
When your mind is bending

Billions do the same
Bred to play the game
No matter how insane
It's never ending

We build the skyline
Artificial horizon
Metal rods, glass shards
And people to pile on
Where ego rules and money is the only truth
Skylines rise and fall, they always do

Hammering the streets
Hiding all that's green
Trampling the earth
Crammed inside the city

Moving to the 'burbs
Adding others to the herd
Giving up your worth
When you're pretending

Billions do the same
Bred to play the game
No matter how insane
It's never ending

We build the skyline
Artificial horizon
Metal rods, glass shards
And people to pile on
Where ego rules and money is the only truth
Skylines rise and fall, they always do
