Biography

One Second 2 Late is comprised of local Newcastle, Ontario mates Brian Pisani (vocals), Rob Henderson (guitar), Derrick Knox (drums), Steve Leca (bass) and Adam Wishak (guitars).

The boys in One Second 2 Late are hardly the image of socially conscious musicians - sometimes they’d rather spend their time shot-gunning beers while hidden inside of a department store change-room. But when it comes to the music – a blend of modern rock and punk – that’s where their serious side begins to emerge. With songs like “Fear Of A Nation” and “World Time Bomb” and lyrics that are crafted to inspire the listener to further thought, the band definitely have their mature side. They just know to turn it off and cut loose every once in a while.

OS2L have toured with modern rock artists Social Code, and Autumn Avanue, and supported bands including illScarlett, 30 Seconds To Mars, Gob, Hedley, State of Shock, Mariana’s Trench, Faber Drive, My American Heart, Down With Webster, and many more.

OS2L plan to release their debut full-length album in early 2008 with Bunk Rock Music, with producers Greig Nori (Sum 41, No Warning, Autopilot Off) and Ian D’Sa of Billy Talent at the helm.

Lyrics

Fear Of A Nation

Written By: One Second 2 Late

Inside my head's not quite right
Thanks Mom for this disease
A modern act of the 1930's has brought me to my knees
Alone, paralyzed by my mind, thoughts battle in my head
10 years repressed confusion
This decades not for me

To be the one who sees everything in front of me
This life is not for free

Try to face this fear of a nation
Spreading lies inside your head
Can't you see what's right in front of you
Wake up consumer generation
Point the finger at yourself
Realize it's you

Try hard its still not right now
Will someone help me please
Another weak attempt of pity has left me drained empty
I know my time will soon come
Memories will slip away
There's nothing left but anger
This fight's just not for me

Lady P

Written By: One Second 2 Late

It started like a race
An hour late I'm on the chase
No invitation so I slip the man a piece
He tells the other men to let em through cause he's a friend
And now the search begins to find my fair lady
Now to the right I see the one they call Penelope
I hear their whispers as they all look down on me
As I'm distracted by the man as he offers a drink
Lady Penelope is right in front of me

We're toe to toe now
So close it's harder to breathe
A rush of blood as it goes down and I can hardly breathe
(might be think)
So I let go now
She's falling further from me
Before she fell I caught her eye and saw my destiny

She's falling further from me

She doesn't understand the reason why another man
I feel the pressure as these walls close in on me
A higher monarchy has chosen to look down on me
A fathers blessing isn't in the cards for me
Attempts to plead my case have left their marks upon my face
Who would have ever thought a name could lead to this
Head down head for the door but just before we're never more
Lady Penelope is right in front of me

We're toe to toe now
So close it's harder to breathe
A rush of blood as it goes down and I can hardly breathe
(might be think)
So I let go now
She's falling further from me
Before she fell I caught her eye and saw my destiny

She's falling further from me
a rush of blood as it goes down and I can hardly breathe
(might be think)
She's falling further from me

It started like a race an hour late I'm on the chase,
who would have ever thought a name could lead to this,
head down head for the door but just before we're never more
Lady Penelope is right in front of me

We're toe to toe now,
so close it's harder to breathe,
a rush of blood as it goes down and I can hardly breathe
(might be think)
So I let go now,
she's falling further from me,
before she fell I caught her eye and saw my destiny

She's falling further from me
a rush of blood as it goes down and I can hardly breathe
(might be think)
She's falling further from me

She's falling further from me, She's Lady Penelope

DA DA DA DA...DA!

Hard Defined

Written By: One Second 2 Late

If innocence is the best that you can see
Then tell me what it is you see in me
Say you remember every day and every night
Another product of a manifested mind
Don't go where you don't understand
Cause things that you do will determine who I am as a man
Rise up from the city in flames
Where the stains are pure and your love is the charred remains

Say I wanna find something
I don't wanna find
When I wake up tomorrow
You'll be there on my mind
And I never thought maybe would be this hard defined
And I never thought maybe.....

I never said that
I don't regret it at all
It was a time when you left me on my own
Another drive by
A sight for sore eyes
You never thought that I could make it on my own

With every dime comes a little peace in me
Another wish down the well of untold dreams
Are the fountain of a never ending plan
To escape from this place and not fall in
Long gone and I won't come back
Cause the road that I chose isn't set
It doesn't come with a map
Look back to the city in pain
Where the rain won't stop but these flames can't be contained

"We'll be together here forever" is what you say
It's not that hard but you're not making this easy
It's time to go but back again you come to me
You just don't understand the life I'm meant to lead

Why won't you just let go and it will be the end of this
Will you say your goodbyes to me It's over

You tell me this
To call it quits
But who's the hypocrite now
This is the life that I have chose
Pray to the gods
I need your help!
But you're a pacifist now,
I say goodbye with this last note

To you I write the words that tell you how I feel
You act like nothings wrong but fell this pain it's real
You think by now you'd know the way it's going to end
But you don't understand you're living this pretend
