about

onesie

Stitching together vivid, hooky guitar pop anthems from scraps of British pop, American punk, and Classic rock, Onesie deals in the currency of anthems written on the voyage toward modern adulthood. As they bounce from one style to another, Onesie’s allegiance to hooks, solid melodies, and momentum more often than not lands them firmly in POWER POP territory. ... more

Track Name: Karaoke Killers
Dig in, all the way
So much more than anyone
That I have met in a great long while
And I just wanted to say

Thank you for the wait
Thought this may not count for anything
Your living room is a white hot tomb
(oh) But there's no place that I'd rather be

Fortunes of tellers
Karaoke Killers
I'm lovesick until I
I wanna put my arms around you kiss you like a starved piranha

Uptown matinee
Reclaim your piece of birthday cake
The problem I miss you whenever you go away

Deep breath for my lunch
Two hearts that just won't sync up
What I'd prefer, what I deserve
To be the lover and the loved

Fortunes of tellers
Karaoke Killers
I'm lovesick until I
I wanna put my arms around you kiss you like the chupacabra
Track Name: Credit Score Of 666
Seven tries to make it
Eleven tries to take the pain
Twenty tries to paste it
(&) Then I did it all again
Now I'll try to taste it
Now I'll try to taste the rainbow

Stuck in the recent past
Grandfathered into this plan
(Oh) It's just a pyramid
That they're gonna build on your back

She treats her friends like pennies
She treats her friends like vending machines
A dollar in the right slot
It buys that luxury of choice

Pleasure's a principal
A fistful, you’re falling apart
You feel the rope behind you
Snap and it's quite a long way down
A credit score of 666
No art of conversation exists
Adjust the bass, let the alpine blast
The positions been filled but you’re next on the list
Track Name: Pillow Sail
Pillow sail
Goodbye my heart
Pillow sail

You can put all the work you want
Into your own
Would be meritocracy
If it registers on their radar

It’s their downtown now
And they can have it

Pillow sail
Goodbye my heart
Pillow sail

What do you do when all your friends
Walk away
You must let them go but you can count
On them needing you again

You left the channels open
But nothings
Coming over the wire

You left the channels open
But nothings
Track Name: Daytime King
Tell me all
Sleep it off
In one piece
You’re right there with me
Daytime King
Promise me
Christmas canes
We’ll close the city
Light up the tree

Where’s my gadget gone?
And the manual
For my dreams
I’m going crazy
Suss it out
Short and stout
Tall and lean
You’re right there with me
Jingling the keys

I think it’s safe to say, that this party is about to become a historical fact

Tell me all

You’re right there with me
Jingling the keys
Track Name: Husbands In Finance
Li De Li De Li
What have you done?
Your boss is pointing with an itchy finger and a loaded tongue
Li De Li De Li
Where have you gone?
They clipped your wings and slashed your tires when you’d only just begun

My husband is
In finance
At least we got that
In common
It will all turn to gold if you turn away

Li De Li De Li
Scan horizons
(&) Book vacations to some foreign nations with a burning sun
Li De Li De Li
Another day is done
Patrol the aisles that go on for miles and I’ll sing my song

My husband is
In finance
At least we got that
In common
It will all turn to gold if you turn away
Track Name: Ballad Of The Boomerang
The ballad of the boomerang
and his sons

People subtly hint
At the greatness locked within
A time capsule buried beneath the roots
Collect the kindling

Are you sure you’re insured
We’re taping windows for the storm
I’ll slink around like a bodega cat
On all fours

Vegas curtains keep the sunlight out
And interruptions to a minimum
But theres so many zip codes I wanna get myself into
Before I’m through

Strictly haute couture
Taking donations from the poor
I’m kickstarting nothing
No funds in the oven
Some things they arrived
Fully formed

These tools are primitive I know
You’ve got me walking pigeon toed
Refine me, baby
Track Name: This Minstrel
Cathy she moved to Texas
Running from a police
Young families trek up north to Queens
Fulfill their third grade dreams
Drifting around a final decision but
I found a comfy position
In the stability of our turbulence

When will I be immune to this?
Keep one ear pointed to the street
20 years since that letter
This minstrel’s starting to believe

Ran into her before she skipped town
Arizona, from the Ezra Pound
An art barge on the Mississippi
Probably kill myself if I could see who’d miss me, yeah

When will I be immune to this?
Keep one ear pointed to the street
20 years since that letter
This minstrel’s starting to believe
If I’m chasing my tail here
With one ear pointed to the street
Give a scare to remind me
This Minstrel’s starting to believe
Track Name: Life Coach Infinite Scroll
In that elevator up to Floor 15
I saw a model tapping on a blackberry
(& she said) “All environments get toxic
If you hang around long enough”

Life Coach
Infinite Scroll
Life Coach
Infinite Scroll
Life Coach
Infinite Scroll

Picked up the tab for you and your fucking friends
Put in my 2 weeks don’t feel like I’m at the end
Ambition, I’m bitching
It’s a straight, line of work, that I’m tangled up in

Life Coach
Infinite Scroll
Life Coach
Infinite Scroll
Life Coach
Infinite Scroll

I get the feeling that you wanna be liked by me
You’re the popular guy (popular guy) in the eighties movie
I live not a 2 minute walk from the faculty parking lot
Fuck this coven of divorcees
I wanna raise huskies
Track Name: Everything You Want And More
An accusation as good as a verdict
Everything you want and more, everything you want and more

Moving targets are hard to hit
Everything you want and more, everything you want and more

(Yeah) All it took was not dying, now here we are
Everything you want and more, everything you want and more

So many have grown up and left this dark city
Float in ponds, attend universities

Driving cars in circles
Driving cars in circles
Well I lost, and I lost, I lost my way
But it's a mistake that I choose to make

You went out begging, you came back rich
Everything you want and more, everything you want and more

It's harder to measure success in this crowded room
You smile like you're not aging too

Driving cars in circles
Driving cars in circles
Yeah I lost, and I lost, I lost my way
But it's the mistake that I’ll choose to make
Track Name: Understudy
Simple vs.
Guilty pleasures
We rehearse
Religiously

Watch her glow
From the dim Miss
Pac Man screen
Board three

Why's everyone in a rush to go nowhere?
And why can’t randomness
be happiness' understudy

All possibilities of night
Go on and live your stupid life
With all of your
Summers off in your mind

I’ve got two
Auroras in my
phone I think (Auroras)
It’s more than most
Lot of re-
jection in the
Ms, oh well
My timing's off

Licking your wounds for a fee and I feel I'm
Dying a quiet death
With dignity intact

So hit me with all your might
Would be half as much as you hit me
You hit me that first night
