Lyrics

Monsters, Demons, Accidents

Written By: J.J. Werner

All by yourself, you figured it out
There are no monsters, …there are no monsters,
It’s only you, it’s you and me.

Oh, just relax, we have a chance
There are no accidents, …there are no accidents.
It’s only you, you and me,
And the places in between.

The places you… run to.
The places you… run to.

All by yourself, you figured it out,
There are no demons, …there are no demons.
It’s only you, it’s you and me
And the places in between.

The places you… run to.
The places you… run to.

Collide.Us.Cope

Written By: J.J. Werner

All I want is to be numb
Said the madman to the other one…
All I want is to be loved
Said the angel to the bleeding hearts

Cause they don’t know
What certain senses feel like

All I want is to believe
Said the poet to her understanding, time
All I want is to redeem
Said the dreamer to who’s listening?

Cause they don’t know
How the colors move and
Kaleidoscope
Sure was beautiful…now

I’m the madman, she’s my angel.
I’m the madman, she’s my angel.
I’m the madman, she’s my angel, although poets make dreamers I am nothing
Like the ones that I adore.

Kaleidoscope
How your colors move and…
Collide us cope
Sure was beautiful

Kaleidoscope
How your colors move and…
Collide us cope
Sure was beautiful

Kaleidoscope
How your colors move and…
Collide us cope
Sure was beautiful… now.

Cracking Up

Written By: J.J. Werner

I am cracking up, I’m in your hands
I can’t recognize all that I have

Wake up, baby, you’re all that I see
Just slow down, honey, it’s only a dream

I will eat you up, minus your plans
Cause you can’t escape, what you don’t have

Wake up, baby, you’re all that I see
Just slow down, honey, it’s only a dream
It’s only a dream, only a dream

Cause I’m breaking down, I’m in your hands
I can’t recognize all that I have

Wake up, baby, you’re all that I see
Just slow down, honey, we’re torn at the seams

It’s only a dream, always a dream

…and it’s cracking up
cracking up
cracking up
cracking up…

Let The Sun Go Down

Written By: J.J.Werner

Let the sun go down, I won’t even notice
When you’re not around, there’s no need to focus.
Let the night close in, I won’t even mention
All the answers found, all that’s left to question.

I can’t seem to see there’s a forest through the trees,
I was only thinking of only you and me honey, honey, honey.

Let the world explode, it’s of little concern
If we’re all alone, I say let it burn.

I just can’t believe this flower was a seed,
Take the time you need just, come back to me honey, honey, honey.

I can’t seem to see there’s a forest through the trees,
I was only thinking of only you and me honey, honey, honey.

Honey… honey…, honey.
You’re heavy on my mind,
I’ll lay it on the line
I am yours, you’re mine
So heavy on my mind…
Said I am yours you’re, you’re mine,
You’re mine, mine, mine… mine, mine.

Let the sun go down, I won’t even notice
When you’re not around, there’s no need to focus.
Let the sun go down, I won’t even notice
When you’re not around, there’s no need to focus.

I just can’t believe this flower was a seed,
Take the time you need just, come back to me honey, honey, honey,
Honey..

Rise And Fall

Written By: J.J. Werner

I want to be mountain high and dreaming, so alive I,
Can’t remember when or where I lost track, or fell behind
They say the past is dead and gone; the present’s all that matters now,
In my heart I want to believe that

Rise and fall. You push I pull
Counting back to…

I want to be oceanside and feeling, all is right I,
Won’t remember how or why I left you far behind
They say that love is all you need; the rest won’t mean anything,
In my heart I’ve got to believe that

Rise and fall. You push I pull
Counting back to…
Your eyes unfold. You’re scared I know
Counting back to… one.

Oh, to rise and fall is to close your eyes too late
Then you’ll see it’s all just a game of give or take
Yeah?

Rise and fall. You push I pull
Counting back to…
Your eyes unfold. You’re scared I know
Counting back to… one.
To… one.

Something New

Written By: J.J. Werner

I have you in mind to write something new
After the punches left me black and blue

So call out the dogs now I don’t care
All of the reasons you should spare me… you won’t
Said you won’t

Stared at my notebook, fell into a dream
Something about a flower and a scream

So call out the dogs now I don’t care
All of the reasons you should spare me… you won’t
Said you won’t

Gracious soul waits for your homecoming
A grateful soul hear my heart calling you
You…

So call out the dogs now, I don’t care
All of the reasons you should spare me… you won’t
Said you won’t

Gracious soul waits for your homecoming
A grateful soul hear my heart calling
A gracious soul waits for your homecoming
Grateful soul hear my heart calling you…
You…

I have you in mind to write something new

Future Glow

Written By: J.J. Werner

Oh, the house is grey
You weren’t born to stay
One color of the spectrum when there’s forty shades of blue
I buried all the evidence, like you wanted to

Letters from your love, the madman
Sent here from the moon
The cold side of the room is asking
When’s your heart in bloom?

A fold, a stamp, a tear
Message on a spear
You saved me from the elements, within the month of june
I’ll make a torch, I’ll find the path that leads me back to you

Letters from your love, the madman
Sent here from the moon
The cold side of the room is asking
When’s your heart in bloom?
Fingers on your deep surrender
Set in morris code
A code that no one knows I’m basking
In our future glow

You lit a candle for me, my sweet child
The house is burning now and I’m still locked inside
Inside…

You saved me from the elements, within the month of june
Buried all the evidence, like you wanted to

Letters from your love, the madman
Sent here from the moon
The cold side of the room is asking
When’s your heart in bloom?
Fingers on your deep surrender
Set in morris code
A code that no one knows I’m basking
In our future glow

Glow…
Glow…

Apple

Written By: J.J. Werner

If I was…
standing there,
No more than twenty feet away
With an apple on my head,
Would you load,
load the gun?
And could you take the shot for once,
To prove you had the guts?
Let me take…
a few steps your way.
I want to help you see this through
Not for me, for you.

Breathe, let’s just see,
the bullet from your hand, hit the apple off my head
…call it love

It’s not your war,
inside my head…
Although you suffer like it is
You suffer like it is.
Let me give,
you something to hold
I’ll find us strength when there is none,
All above, my love.

Breathe, let’s just see,
the bullet from your hand, hit the apple off my head
Feel, lets just feel,
the bullet from your hand, hit the apple off my head
…call it love

Breathe, let’s just see,
the bullet from your hand, hit the apple off my head
Feel, lets just feel,
the bullet from your hand, hit the apple off my head
…we’ll call it love

Cold Blue World

Written By: J.J. Werner

Oh, your heart is pure, but not so strong
Oh, your soul is old, but not so wise…
Alright, that’s fine

Oh, the world is cold, I don’t know why
All the people are, afraid to try…
Alright, that’s fine

Room 9 At The Asylum

Written By: J.J. Werner

It’s only your heart, alone in your chest
Only an organ pumping blood to the rest.
Cry if it helps, your place on the shelf
Is warped if not missing, buried down in the well.

It’s only a cut, and it would heal
If I could stop picking at it to feel.
I’ll drown in a stare, on my favorite chair
I’ll remember the old days, of when I still cared.

Rocking chair moves forward I know, we’re going no where
Back in forth in love, and then gone, I know it’s over… again.
Check the heart rate and the blood pressure; tell us how you found him,
Take some warm milk and the pills to room 9.

This medicine’s junk, it’s clouded my head
I’m stumbling drunk, looking for a warm bed.
Head nurse was concerned; it’s somebody’s turn,
To check on my vitals while there’s some left to burn.
I said it’s only your heart, alone in your chest
It’s only an organ pumping blood, blood, blood to the rest.

Rocking chair moves forward I know, we’re going no where,
Back in forth in love, and then gone, I know it’s over…
Rocking chair moves backwards alone, and going no where,
Back in forth in love and then gone, I know it’s over…
Check the heart rate and the blood pressure; tell us how you found him
Take some warm milk and the pills to room 9.

They say there’s a world outside, it’s a world I’ve tried to know.
They say there’s a world outside, there’s a world outside, a world outside…?

Rocking chair moves forward I know, we’re going no where,
Back in forth in love, and then gone, I know it’s over…
Rocking chair moves backwards alone, going no where,
Back in forth in love and then gone, I know it’s over…
