Biography

After years of playing in various bands, the five members of The Warned (Justin Warn, vocals/keyboards; Jesse Warn, guitar/vocals/synthesizer; Steve Sievers, bass/vocals; Eden Godinez, guitar/vocals; Robbie Coleman, drums/percussion) have come together to create something that they all believe in: music with feeling and emotion. The music that emanates from this band is both melodic and powerful, with a sense of urgency. All five musicians bring equal, yet different, aspects to the band – leaving listeners satisfied with a feeling of hope and promise. The Warned encompasses various elements of rock, metal, and alternative pop into a unique, addictive sound.
“Music has always been a large influence for me in my life,” states Justin Warn, one of the band’s co-founders. “My father, who passed away in 1999, taught me the importance of music and the ultimate importance of providing and taking care of your family….music is music as long as it’s good. That’s how I see it these days,” Warn adds. “In high school, I started to get into the hardcore scene, attending show after show with my good friend (and eventual Warned band mate), Steve Sievers…I think that was the point at which I realized that being in a band is what I wanted to do.”
In 2006 Warn embarked on a trip to the Philippines with some members of his church, something that would “stretch him physically, emotionally, and spiritually,” he recalls. “We brought medical supplies and much-needed love and care (that) people in third-world countries rarely get. It was an eye opener.” Warn journeyed to Zambia and Zimbabwe in Africa this past year. “The desperation and need is so great out there…it’s hard to imagine a place like that without water, food, or medical supplies…to see what’s going on in other parts of the world that are so beautiful yet so lacking is mind-changing and inspiring. Inspiring to write about what’s going on from my perspective. It’s about love, understanding, and compassion. Real issues, real life – how I see things. I am totally inspired and driven to make a change in this world, one way or the other.”

Lyrics

Let Me See You Again

Written By: Justin Warn

LAY MY HANDS DOWN NOW I’M SUFFERING, TIE THESE PIECES TO THE HANDS HAVE TRIED, IN THE REIGNS OF LIFE

LET ME SEE YOU AGAIN, AND WE NEVER INTEND, NEVER INTEND TO REPAY THE FULL PRICE, NAILS ON

CREEP PAST DOORS, I’M SO AFRAID TO FIND THESE SITUATIONS IN MY LIFE SO OVERWHELMING ME,
AND I WONDER WHY CAN’T THEY SEE?

LET ME SEE YOU AGAIN, AND WE NEVER INTEND, NEVER INTEND TO REPAY THE FULL PRICE, WE WERE BOUGHT!

AND YOU COULD BE MORE THAN THIS, MORE THAN THIS

DARING NOT OBSERVE COLD HANDS NOW WITHOUT BURDEN, I’LL RUN AWAY NOT LOOKING BACK, THE STORIES OF THE UNTOLD, A MOMENT LIKE THIS

WILL YOU BE BETTER OFF? IT FAILS ME KNOWING THINGS WILL NEVER BE THE SAME, SITTING UPON THIS BUILT UP DREAM, FASTER BEATING, SO OVERWHELMED, WHITE SHEETS WRAPPED

WILL YOU BE BETTER OFF?

AND IT’S FREE AND RADICAL TO CHANGE AND TO FLOW IN OTHER WAYS EYES

WILL YOU BE BETTER OFF?

ONE DARK SURREAL I NEVER WANT TO LOOK OR FEEL THIS WAY

WILL YOU BE BETTER OFF?

Answer the Call

Written By: Justin Warn


Will you answer the call? She says now I’m ok
All day I sit and I wait, I sit and wait by the windows pain

Will you come around one day soon looking talking faster,
It’s those soothing ways I’m reaching to the sky, moonlight guides,
So far away, forget the past there’s nothing left

Could this be for the last time? As we dance around the fireside
Could this be for the last time? It seems we’re over and over again

Answer the call, she says now I’m ok, stop what your thinking, I’m listening. Answer the call, she says now I’m ok, I’m ok, I sit, I sit and wait

I’m being watchful to this very end with all these problems, your standing there with the shield of, moonlight guides, so far away,
Forget the past there’s nothing left

Could this be for the last time? As we dance around the fireside
Could this be for the last time? It seems we’re over and over again

Answer the call, she says now I’m ok, stop what your thinking, I’m listening. Answer the call, she says now I’m ok, I’m ok, I sit, I sit and wait

Could this be the last time? One more chance, one more chance
Could this be the last time, it’s going fast, it’s going
Could this be the last time? One more chance we’ll take!

Answer the call, she says now I’m ok, stop what your thinking, I’m listening. Answer the call, she says now I’m ok, I’m ok, I sit, I sit and wait

Listening I’m listening, listening I’m listening,
Will you answer the call, she says now I’m ok

At the Sight of the Dead

Written By: Justin Warn

Desperation on my mind, faces in the dark just eyes
So we race to conclude, not much more is done to this

Forget what’s said, you come away, empty handed again
Never will forget

In the palms, of your hand, So much closer to the truth

Bury your eyes, run away
Ear to the ground, its ‘bout to sound

Heavenly nights, desire lines
Showing interest in the weight, is gone
Hope that fills, you light a room

Making right, you never lose but gain
Vivid to mind this time

Bury your eyes, run away
Ear to the ground, its ‘bout to sound

Heavenly nights, desire lines
Showing interest in the weight, is gone
Hope that fills, you light a room

Build us a road, I believe
Build us a road we’ll take I believe in you
I believe in you

Run away, at the sight of the dead
Run away, at the sight of the dead, I believe in

Life worth living, life worth giving
Run away, at the sight of the dead

As I Lie Awake

Written By: Justin Warn, Steve Sievers

SHADOWS FALL INTO PLACE, SEEN BUT UNHEARD,
THE CLOUDED THOUGHTS AT LEAST THERE’S HOPE, MISERY GONE, SEEN BUT UNHEARD

AS I LIE AWAKE, TAKING BACK THE STORIES OF THOSE PROMISES YOU MADE, PLACE YOUR HAND IN MINE.
THE BEATING HEARTS, SIMPLE THOUGHTS THAT YOU LEFT BEHIND

SAVE A THOUGHT FOR WE LIGHT THE CANDLES BY,
WE LIVE FOREVER TILL THE END OF TIME

CARRY ON SO SHIELD YOUR EYES AND RUN AWAY WITH ME,
THE WALLS SEEM CLOSER EVERY WAY
I’M WIDE AWAKE THE CLOCK TICKS THE TIME AWAY,
IT’S GETTING CLOSER TO THE POINT,
BUT CAN YOU HEAR ME WHEN I TRY TO SAY YOUR NAME

WAIT FOR US, CAN WE BE THE ONES WHO KNOW, AND WE LIVE, JUST FOR THIS, NOW ITS HERE THEN SO FAR GONE

LOOKING BACK THROUGH ALL THOSE YEARS I CAN’T BELIEVE MY EYES, I DIED A LITTLE EVERY DAY, YOU PUSHED AWAY BY THE SHACKLES IN MY BRAIN, BUT YOU SATISFIED THE PAIN, AND YOU’LL BE THERE EVERY TIME I SAY YOUR NAME

WAIT FOR US, CAN WE BE THE ONES WHO KNOW, AND WE LIVE, JUST FOR THIS, NOW ITS HERE THEN SO FAR GONE

AS I LIE AWAKE, TAKING BACK THE STORIES OF THOSE PROMISES YOU MADE,
PLACE YOUR HAND IN MINE , THE BEATING HEARTS, SIMPLE THOUGHT THAT YOU LEFT BEHIND

SAVE A THOUGHT FOR WE LIGHT THE CANDLES BY, WE LIVE FOREVER TILL THE END OF TIME

Blameless

Written By: Justin Warn, Steve Sievers

Departed ways, never end
Your lying eyes, cant pretend

So long, farewell, goodbye
For the last time
This blood it fills the sky

Someone turn the light on now I see, so clearly
Teaching me everything is what I would believe
So I remain…

So long, farewell, goodbye
For the last time
This blood it fills the sky

Sanctuary coming over me, hide from the thief
Ordinary never ending day, so I escape…

You’ll find me alive, I’ve finally arrived
I’ve finally, I’m finally alive
You’ll find me alive, you’ll find me
I’m finally alive, I’m finally alive

Save us, were the sinking ship, so blameless
Save us, were the sinking ship, so blame us

Breathe Out

Written By: Justin Warn


Staring into those, mystery eyes outline of,
Perfection, so happy feeling sure
The possibilities I’m longing for

Breathe out confused air, so I hold on to these memories
Breathe out, breathe out confused air, so I hold on, hold on to this

It started out with those two who knew of each other,
Not all has been said but mostly just felt words ,
Without what would we
Knowing there’s care for me it’s not merely surface
Its true I know I know

Breathe out confused air, so I hold on to these memories
Breath out, breathe out confused air, so I hold on, hold on to this
Breathe out confused air, so I hold on, hold on to this

Smiles creep around our faces, this feeling burns inside,
And I know that I’m alive

Say it in your prayers, hold it in your lungs, I’m alright
Show me with your face, tell me with your eyes,
I’m alright, alright

Breathe out confused air, so I hold on, hold on to this

One Way Path

Written By: Justin Warn

YOU LET ME GO ALL NIGHT, WERE GOING DOWN THIS ONE WAY PATH, ONE WAY PATH AGAIN,

YOU LET ME GO, ONE MORE TIME WE’LL FIGHT

EVERYONE IS SO SURE, THAT THEY’RE GONNA GET INSIDE, TAKE A LOOK, IMAGINE YOURS A DIFFERENT SORT OF LIFE

EVERYONE IS SO SURE, THEY’RE TRYING WITH ALL THEIR MIGHT,
COULD THIS BE THE LAST CHANCE TO SAVE THIS BROKEN LIFE?

YOU LET ME GO ALL NIGHT, WERE GOING DOWN THIS ONE WAY PATH, ONE WAY PATH AGAIN,

YOU LET ME GO, ONE MORE TIME WE’LL FIGHT

EVERYONE IS SO SURE, WITH THEIR SHARP HANDSHAKES, THAT WE HIDE BEHIND THE CURTAIN OF THE LOST AND FAKE

EVERYONE IS SO SURE, TAKING THEIR OWN ADVICE
COULD THIS BE THE LAST CHANCED TO SAVE THIS BROKEN LIFE?

YOU LET ME GO ALL NIGHT, WERE GOING DOWN THIS ONE WAY PATH, ONE WAY PATH AGAIN,

YOU LET ME GO, ONE MORE TIME WE’LL FIGHT
