about

With their 4th studio album, Inside a Dream, genre benders The Werks take listeners on a track-by-track musical voyage through the heart of a dream; into their own hopes, fears, and aspirations. The seasoned jam-centric quartet brings a sonically superior mix of otherworldly explorations and revelatory lyrics to this artistic and mature musical statement.

With this refined collection of songs, the band captures the full spectrum of the dream state itself. Through sanguine compositions that effortlessly transition from spacious soundscapes to driving rhythms, the album merges multiple genres in a style that only this Ohio quartet can deliver. Throughout the 11-track release, Inside a Dream remains raw yet polished, and emotional yet whimsical… it is within these contradictions where the depth of the band truly shines.

Track Name: The Answer
The Answer

Subjectively
You cannot see
A moment of truth to be acquainted

It comes in view
With each day of new
And could easily be mistaken

But what is right is something you should know
To find the place in life where you should go
To simply follow or to lead the way
Helping find the truths of yesterday

Introspectively
You begin to see
As faded dreams begin arising

It comes in view
And breaks on through
An open-minded silver lining

But what is right is something you should know
To find the place in life where you should go
To simply follow or to lead the way
Helping find the truths of yesterday

So if you think you’ve found the answers
To the questions in our lives that come in view
But turn around and you may finally realize
That the answer was right in front of you

In front of you...
Track Name: Drop
Drop

One drop is all it took
Now I’m giving things a second look
My eyes are open to a brand new light,
And I have to say this move is gonna set things right
One drop and now I’m hooked
Can never reclaim all the things they took
I'm moving on with what I have,
With a smile on my face no more hole in my bag
We've come too far to stop
Be thankful for what you got
We're taking this to the top,
And all it took was just one drop

One drop to see through the lies
I have to say it was a big surprise
I can't believe I let it get this deep,
As I’m staring at the ceiling and I cannot sleep
One drop to set the mood
I have to say I’m feeling pretty good
The possibilities are open to me,
With an overwhelming feeling of being free

We've come too far to stop
Be thankful for what you got
We're taking this to the top
And all it took was just one drop

One drop is all it took...
Track Name: For You
For You

On the road, far from home,
Never really knowing where we are but we go
Making paths, forging tracks,
We make so many memories in hopes that they last

On the way, every day,
Inspiration fills my soul
Lessons learned, tides may turn,
Repairing all the bridges that we can that have burned

Rocky Mountain highs, bright blue skies,
Canyons deep and rivers wide
From the low tides, to the great divide,
The smiles on our faces we cannot hide

We never know what lies before us, exciting and new
(It all leads back to you)
We're out here making our dreams come true
(It all leads back to you)
For all the times I spent away yeah, you never knew
(It all leads back to you)
It crumbles to dust if not for you

On the road, far from home,
Inspiration fills my soul,
Lessons learned, tides they turn,
You are why we rock and roll

We never know what lies before us, exciting and new
(It all leads back to you)
We're out here making our dreams come true
(It all leads back to you)
For all the times I spent away yeah, you never knew,
(It all leads back to you)
It crumbles to dust if not for you

It all leads back to you...
Track Name: Give Or Take
Give or Take

Everyday I try to find a way to say the words you want to hear,
But I'm paralyzed with fear
They'll wind up insincere
Feel so lost inside who am I to give advice
I finally realize only you can live your life
Trapped inside this place,
Mistakes can't be erased
And now there's no escape I'm just a victim of my fate

And time... slowly strips away the things that matter in our lives
There is no pleasure without pain
Nothing stays the same for very long

Finally found a way to seize the day and say the words inside my head
The gold weighed more than led and something needed said
Try to live my life, to give and sacrifice
I know that it’s time only I can change inside
Life is not a race,
A destination nor a place
It's the moments we create,
What you give not what you take

And I... finally see the light the world designed around my eyes
As I look back on my life, I think about the ones I left behind
Track Name: Not Alone
Not Alone

Have you ever wondered who you are
Have you ever wanted to run far away
Have you ever had a broken heart
Have you ever felt like you lost everything

But be yourself, just be yourself
And be set free

But be yourself, just be yourself
And you will see

You're not alone...

The skyline shines so bright that you can't see
But then you open your eyes and it was all a dream
Sometimes it's harder than it seems
Sometimes you feel like you can’t do anything

But be yourself, just be yourself
And be set free

But be yourself, just be yourself
And you will see

You're not alone
Track Name: Waiting Room
Waiting Room

Say that you love me
Let me spend just one more night with you
Because tomorrow comes with sorrow
When you make your way back to the waiting room

No more happy endings
Never thought this ride would end so soon
And if you see me don't condemn me
Life's too short to spend with only you
Try and understand I hope you do
As you make your way back to the waiting room

A lover lost is just a lesson to show
(The hardest part is letting go)
What you want sometimes is just a joke in your mind
(Bought a nickel for a dime)
The harder you try the further it goes
(Holding your own mistletoe)
I wish there were rules but nobody knows
(Easy come now go)
The waiting room...
