lyrics

THE FIGHTER I know a man, tries the best that he can to no avail | Chewed up and spat out, but with strength enough to fight for another day | But there will come a day | Your springtime is com'in | The birds will be call'in your name | I know a man, who fought death hand-to-hand and he won | Yet no songs will be sung and no one will ever know his name | But there will come a day | Your springtime is com'in | The birds will be call'in your name | Gather 'round all you citizens, all you cynics and all you disaffected sons | There is a reason why this has come to pass and reasons why it can never, ever last | We are authors of our destiny, but most of us chase testaments to our avarice and greed | But there will come a day | The springtime is call'in | And your winter will call it a day

about

Ones&Zeros Vancouver, British Columbia

Tracing an arc from early 80s new wave and post-punk sounds to the present, Ones&Zeros combine dual male & female vocals with gritty pop riffs that can veer off into folk, country, psychedelic and, sometimes, orchestral territories.
