Johnny

Johnny boy — oh — Johnny boy

don’t let them take you away
don’t let the real soul
inside you
dry out and die and fade

Johnny boy — oh — Johnny

don’t take those pills
they make you the same
plain — oh so plain
they want to suppress you

Johnny boy — oh

don’t let the poison into
your mind
let it seep out your ears
and your eyes
leave it alone

Johnny boy

you’re drifting away
your eyes are vacant
when they look at me
the darkest pits of nothing

Johnny

now you walk down the streets
you are not you, anymore
you are just another
civilian,
forgotten.

Oh — you could have been something.
