These modern socks

BandPopRock

Built in a spare room, forged in keys and distortion, These Modern Socks push jittery keyboard lines, stop and go drums and a combination of electric and acoustic guitar into a well crafted, synth/guitar-pop work of art.

Biography

Recording nearly the entire album in a spare room in his home, Corey Palmer took his vision to the perfect pop record and put it to tape. The self titled record was released by Palmer in the summer of 2005. After selling the entire first pressing of the record wholly at local shows, the group has moved the recording of their second album to local Minneapolis recording studio The Sound Gallery.

Much Like Voltron, these five men combined create one of the greatest forces ever to be reckoned with. The Musical colossus known as These Modern Socks is not for the faint of heart, mind, body or soul. This harmonious super nova could very well destroy everything you've ever know, or thought you knew, about infectious pop music.

Worry Free Lifestyle

Written By: Corey Palmer

you and i decided that you're with me for the ride as we compromise the promises we've made
hurry take advantage of the chances it provides and embrace it all before it goes away as we say
worry free life style
don't regret the little things we ruined in the past 'cause we got a shot to leave it all behind we've got
worry free life style
now our only problem is the chemistry we lack i'm trying not to let it wreck my time

its not enough don't cut me off 'cause i've fallen for you
call you collect but you reject will i ever get through

man i get so jealous that you party all the time i've got every right to do it all the same
now i see you hangin out with ordinary guys and it bothers me to know you know their names that's just
worry free life style
i regret the moment that i told you its alright cause its usually just another thing i say just like
worry free life style
if you remember anything i ever say remember what i'm telling you this time

its not enough don't cut me off 'cause i've fallen for you
call you collect but you reject will i ever get through
i'm fooling myself i might as well 'cause i'll never have you
separate way separate place you do what you want to

don't forget the reason that you're with me for the ride be it trivial or something more like fate
i'm begging you to promise i'm not just a fancy flight or a chance for you to get an easy lay that's just
worry free life style
things are getting shaky and i'm missing you for days i hope that you're around to hear me say

its not enough don't cut me off 'cause i've fallen for you
call you collect but you reject will i ever get through
i'm fooling myself i might as well 'cause i'll never have you
separate way separate place you do what you want to

Picking A Lock At The Speed Of Light

Written By: Corey Palmer

when all meaning's locked in a metal box and you know you lost your key
get a paper clip and a safety pin that'll get you in guaranteed
lift the door turn the wrench

open up hold it up like a mystery
tear it up lock it up then lose the key

i don't recommend trying that again because your luck runs thin usually
we've all got our own made of hooks and bones we can crack those codes easily
lift the door turn the wrench

open up hold it up like a mystery
tear it up lock it up then lose the
open up lock it up like a mystery
tear it up lock it up then lose the key

lift the door turn the wrench
lift the door turn the wrench
lift the door turn the wrench
lift the door turn the wrench

open up hold it up like a mystery
tear it up lock it up then lose the
open up lock it up like a mystery
tear it up lock it up then lose the key
