about

Jon Cohen Experimental Montréal, Québec

Fantasy prom king, master crafter of cult-pop gems and multi-threat instrumentalist Jon Cohen knows exactly what Ween’s Deaner was talkin’ about. JCEx’s sweet but potent stories spring from a natural, and infectious, sense of curiosity. His beguiling art rock inventions promise a subtle yet sultry escape from those pesky workaday hang-ups. ... more

Track Name: In Order To Survive
In Order To Survive

I walked into her fire
When I told her she was wrong
She said time is running out,
We’re not gettin any younger
She took me by the hand
Smiled n dragged me
On the dance floor,
And she said

Are you always this mature
i told her I’m not sure
Is your heart an open door
And we danced on the empty floor

You, you’re trying to prove something
Told her i didn’t have any answers anyhow
Just worries and questions
And mountains of indecision
She took a sip from her wineglass
And then she took a bow
Then she said

Are you always this unsure
i told her i'm not sure
Oh my hearts an open door
She never looked so pure

Oh and we danced right out the door
We danced right out the door
And i never felt so sure
I was the cancer she was the cure

There isn’t anybody here
To tell us how to run our lives
Ohh nobody here
To tell us how to run our lives
And so we learn to disappear
To dream to dance to cry
And so we learn to disappear
In order in order to survive

I couldn’t help to admire
The way she pretends
Like the worlds gonna end anytime
She says lets shelter ourselves
And she drew me a picture
The colours and lines were exquisite
Even though she was blind
And she said

Are you always this unsure
I told her I’m not sure
Track Name: Rhapsody In Pink
Rhapsody In Pink

Sing to me
Honest melody
As you lay me down to sleep
One that sweeps me off my feet
Put the storybooks back on the shelf
All by yourself

It’s a rhapsody
By the colour of pink
For an broken heart to hear
If i could cry id shed one tear
The only thing I have to fear
Is fear itself

Just a rhapsody in pink
For our aching hearts to heal
Don’t believe what you think
And question what’s real
Just a rhapsody in pink

Tell me again
Again about the time
When you first laid eyes on me
You said my soul was like the sea
You said you could never be the same again

It’s just a rhapsody in pink
For our empty (broken) hearts to heal
Don’t believe what you think
And question what’s real (x2)

Sing to me honest melody
A rhapsody to push out boundaries
Will you push your boundaries for me

It’s just a rhapsody in pink
For our empty (broken) hearts to heal
Don’t believe what you think
And question what’s real

Just a rhapsody in pink,
A rhapsody in pink
Track Name: Weakness
Weakness

My weakness
Is my most powerful teacher

My weakness
Is my greatest source of strength

My weakness
Also my greatest companion

My weakness
Talk about it at length

Don’t give me strength
Give me weakness

My weakness makes
me vulnerable to you

My weakness
My most faithful companion

My weakness
Make me humble and true

My weakness
Is so attractive to you

Don’t give me strength
Give me weakness
Track Name: Blood On The Microphone
Blood On The Microphone

Bring me a bottle of brandy
And a carton of cigarettes
There’s blood on the microphone
But wont get no rest

Until i sing my song
Completely wrong
And extremely loud
Until my voice is gone gone gone yeah

Sick of your ear candy
And your terrible jokes
There's blood on the microphone
And ill keep taking some tokes

Until my voice has bled
Till I’m completely dead
Leave me alone in this dingy studio
Keep the tape rolling till I’m done
Until i go
With blood on the microphone

Draw he lines
Connect the dots
Roll the tape
Smile and give all you go
You know
You mean it

Angels sing
With the voice in your head
Take thehaters make them lovers instead
You know
They need it

So bring me a bottle of brandy
And just a glimmer of hope
You reap what you have sown
But it's a slippery slope
That youre going down
And if you think im a clown
You better believe in what youre fighting for
Cuz im nto gonna take your punches
Anymore
no

Draw he lines
Connect the dots
Roll the tape
Smile and give all you go
You know
You mean it
Track Name: Love In Your Heart
Love In Your Heart

All that is light
Floats to the top

All that is moving
Comes to a stop

All who are loving
learn to let go

Of all that is living
And all that is not

Is there love in your heart
Is there love in your heart

All that is heavy
Weighing us down

All who are angry
Carry the frown

Of hatred and envy, jealousy
Greed need desire aversion and guilt
Bringing us down

From seeing our kingdom
From wearing our crown

Is there love in your heart
Is there love in your heart
