lyrics

John's Saga:
Well he heard when he was young
This town is run by Brother Joe
He heard it high, he heard it low
Because his father told him so
His mother said now go to bed
Sleep well 'cause the world is so
But in his dreams or so it seems
He heard the voice of rock n roll

He sees the poor folks sleeping by the light pole
(I don't think so . . . no Brother Joe)
He sees the black hearts putting on the white robes
(I don't think so . . . not in rock n roll)
He sees the white robes handing out the blindfolds
The men in blindfolds talking 'bout the soul
In high school he was called a fool
They say you can't compete with Brother Joe
So have a beer now don't you fear
Sit back and enjoy the status quo

He sees the black suits preying on the old
He sees the old lady praying 'bout her soul
He sees the gold flow straight to Brother Joe
He sees those never straying from the fold
He doesn't have a clue how to do it
But he knows he hates the man
So join the revolution, we'll hatch a plan

His mother prays please give him faith
Return dear child we're growing old
But Ma you gotta deal with what is real
You don't need faith with rock n roll

The promised land or so we've been told
No one knows just where we're supposed to go
The blue men say trust in Brother Joe
The secret comes when you give away your soul

All my friends can't you see it
They're beating us down
In the heart, in the bed, in the innermost domain

We won't be back here Brother Joe
