Monáe, Janelle - Come Alive (War Of The Roses) Lyrics




Tommy thinks the crazies are back in my mind
Tommy says the children are clouding my head
When everything is wrong I dance inside my mind

That's when I come alive like a schizo running wild
That's when I come alive now let's go wild

We're kicking at your window and keeping you up
And if you come to find me I'll color you red
We dancing in the dungeon every Monday night

That's when I come alive like a schizo running wild
That's when I come alive now let's go wild

You want to see me crazy taking my meds
And wipe away my noises you think I'm a mess
Take me six feet under while your roses died I came alive

You better leave the town I'm coming for you
Call the Tommy up and tell him come help you out
I'm getting wild on you you better go and call the law

Tommy thinks the crazies are back in my mind
Tommy says the children are clouding my head
When everything is wrong I dance inside your mind
You come alive

    Tommy thinks the crazies are back in my mind
    Tommy says the children are clouding my head
    When everything is wrong I dance inside my mind

    That's when I come alive like a schizo running wild
    That's when I come alive now let's go wild

    We're kicking at your window and keeping you up
    And if you come to find me I'll color you red
    We're dancing in the dungeon every Monday night

    That's when we come alive like a schizo running wild
    That's when I come alive now let's go wild

    You want to see me crazy taking my meds
    And wipe away the noises you think I'm a mess
    Take me six feet under, but while your roses died, I came alive

    You better leave the town I'm coming for you
    Call the Tommy up and tell him come help you out
    I'm getting wild on you you better go and call the law

    When Tommy thinks the crazies are back your mind
    When Tommy says the children are clouding your head
    When everything is wrong, just dance inside your mind
    And you'll come alive

    Monae is cosmic jazz,

    When everything is wrong I dance inside my mind

    That's when I come alive like a schizo running wild
    That's when I come alive now let's go wild
