Johnny Boy, everyone thinks that you're the Devil's son. I saw you in my dreams saw that you'd be good to me. Let my hair come undone now I know that you're the one. You can have me for free my love for you has no fee. Can you hear them beg me, hear them beg me. Oh Johnny Boy... Johnny Boy, sad and blue, everyone is a bird to you but don't you mind what they sing don't be upset when they all take wing. Far too high, they can't see what a big bad world lies underneath. I'm with you below the trees my love gentle as the breeze. Can you hear them beg me, hear them beg me. Oh Johnny Boy... Johnny Boy, everyone thinks that you're the Devil's son Johnny Boy, everyone thinks that you're the Devil Oh Johnny Boy...

Some people like to pray, I like to kiss. Some people like their comfort, I like to touch. And I know I don't need no god at all, I don't need no light to guide me through the dark as I walk alone. Don't get me wrong... 'Cause I know I am a mortal man and this makes no sense looking through a lens I know I am just a mortal man Some people like to think there's someone up there Some people like to hope there's something waiting But I know there will be no place at all 'cause there is no soul that's running through these bones as I sing my song and I walk alone 'Cause I know I am a mortal man and this makes no sense looking through a lens I know I am just a mortal man I'm a mortal man...

Inspect every inch that's left wires in my head to please you to please you. Knock on your wooden door And now my master's gone I'll need you I'll need you Wolf is howling wolf is howling wolf is howling wolf is howling in the night I'll follow his cry I'll follow, before he dies Pretend to be somebody else someone less upset to please you to please you Knock on your wooden door And now my master's gone I'll need you I'll need you Wolf is howling wolf is howling wolf is howling wolf is howling in the night I'll follow his cry I'll follow, before he dies Don't say a word or the Devil will know that I've found you I'm cold and I'm tired all I want is to crawl right beside you. Wolf is howling....

Nicotine days and nicotine nights. It might be a phase I'll just wait and sit tight. 'Till one day I'll backfire like a gun broken red blood drying in the sun. You'd better run now. The crows of disgrace will pick on my eyes Don't look at my face 'cause there's not much left to recognize. Oh daddy Run (run) Run (run) Run them bunnies smell like murder Run (run) Nicotine days and nicotine nights it might be a phase it might just be my life I'm looking for my Hobo my Hoboland my Hobo my Hoboland The crows of disgrace will pick on my eyes Run (run) Run (run) Run them bunnies smell like murder Run (run) Someone stole my love like the eye of the scarecrow taken by the bird Is it in a hole? In a hole underground and sleeping with them bunnies? Someone stole my love Someone stole my love Run (run) Run get away get away get away now Run them bunnies smell like murder Run They'll choke on the wine we pour.

If it doesn't hurt it means it's not working And if it doesn't burst it means it's not burning enough. Thank you for the morning coffee. Thank you for not breaking down. Drowning as we float despite the weight of time. If it doesn't hurt it means it's not worth it. Send the kids to bed and send them all my loving Thank you for the coffee dear Thank you for not breaking down. Drowning as we float despite the weight of time.

This garden's growing fast and every day the shades you thought would match turn into grey. You think that you can find a way to keep us safe but you don't really know what you're talking about, do you? Nobody really cares whether you're right or wrong or whether you were graced with being very long You think that you can find a way to play it strong but you don't really know what you're talking about, do you? I am not impressed I know deep down in your chest you keep your fears tied up in knots I am not impressed I'll tell you man one day they'll kill you if you don't connect the dots. Nobody really cares whether you're right or wrong or whether you were graced with being very long You think that you can find a way to play it strong but you don't really know what you're talking about, do you?

The smell of burnt travels on the tracks where hope might be lying underneath buildings that collapse And I fight against the fear that grips me by my throat I fight to be me to leave this death unheard but in the end I like you 'cause you're free I like you 'cause you're not like me You tell me you don't care what other people have to say and you're great enough to stare with a smile upon your face But me, I'm always taken by the thought of all those shoes, stepping on the station floor the world to lose. We're looking for a place where the curtains could be drawn where the best of all our days could be condensed into just one and I know that if I leave I'll only end up by your door Like a dog that bites its tail I will love you till I'm gone I like you 'cause you're free I like you 'cause you don't like me. The smell of burnt travels on the tracks where hope might be lying underneath buildings that collapse And I fight against the fear that grips me by my throat I fight to be me to leave this death unheard All we are is what we choose to hide from each other tell me how you really feel or don't even bother talking
