Unwritten Law - California Sky Lyrics

Imagine, the dreams we had
Since we were children are real
It's magic
To see their minds filled with the music we feel
Well here's your message from above
And if you wanta make push come to shove, alright
This ain't no lullaby
We're right at home in the California Sky
Illusions are taking part of the confusion in me
Tomorrow, there will be no heroes left to follow
You'll see
Bright lights they flash across the sky
May be the reason why we're all insane
And I don't wanta get away
We're right at home in the California Sky
Live from the mansion on the hill
Reminds you of the way we used to feel, right?
Orion's aligned now
Turn back the time
The California Sky

Unwritten Law California Sky Comments
  1. This is Ajang

    Just played TJ Lavin's Ultimate BMX earlier this morning. It's still as fun as ever.

  2. Zach Good

    Interesting note about this song. In March of 1997, the members of an alien cult named "Heaven's Gate", which was based out of San Diego, committed mass suicide because they believed an alien spacecraft was trailing the Hale-Bopp Comet and the group thought their souls would be taken up in the ship. The bald guy shown a few times in this music video was the group's leader, Marshall Applewhite. Well, Unwritten Law is a San Diego band who recorded "California Sky" in the summer of 1997. Putting these things together, I assumed that Scott Russo and the band were inspired to make this song based on the cult suicide...but a couple years ago I tweeted Russo and asked him if this was the case, and he told me no. I just can't imagine this song _not_ being about Heaven's Gate.

    The dreams we had since we were children
    Are real
    It's magick
    To see their minds filled with the music
    We feel
    Well here's your message from above
    And if you want to push come to shove
    This ain't no lullaby
    We're right at home in the California skyIllusions
    Are taking part of the confusion
    In me
    There'll be no heroes left to follow
    You'll see
    Bright lights that flash across the sky
    May be the reason why we're all insane and I
    I don't want to get away and
    We're right at home in the California skyLive from the mansion on the hill
    Reminds me of the way we used to feel right
    Orion's aligned now
    Turn back the time
    The California sky

    This reminds me of nailing TJ Lavins ultimate BMX when I was a kid. Happy days!!!

    Gaetano Francesco Prochilo

    That game was underrated


    Same reason here, love to think about the gameplay when hearing to a song like this!

  28. ali wait


  29. Risingsun310

    Gosh.... 28 now discovered these guys when I was in H.S.  Started randomly singing this song the other day and couldn't find the CD anywhere.  Had to jump onto youtube and so glad it is here!

  30. SonicRyan1992

    only complaint, this was a pretty weak music video for such a mystic, and trippy rock song.


    In their defence this was 1998


    ehhh...then again Marilyn Manson's "Dope Show" and The Offspring's "Pretty Fly for a White Guy" worked well between audio and visuals.

    but what i can forgive is that maybe at the time Unwritten Law didn't have nearly as lucrative of a budget to pull it of and this was the best they could do then.

  31. Solar Wind

    Nazi bulkshit

    the intro of this song reminded me for a second of the Dumpweed's one!! anyone had the same feeling??:D

  52. DumbPunk

    From the moment I heard the songs off their first and second record I instantly loved them but for whatever reason it took me a while to get into their third. Now that I've gotten into it I realized this is definitly pop punk at its finest!!!!!

  53. KloudyDays

    There was a girl I went out with one time who knew the drummer for Unwritten Law, she said she would introduce me to him...she never did return my phone call for a second date....I was more disappointed by the fact I would never get to meet him V_V

  54. Fang Grasshawk
