lyrics

Word to John the Baptist
I'm just trying to get my head right
The head right
Eles there every night
Damn right
know he been smooth
Since days of underoos
he grew on transformers
And she on blues clues
Who knew?
Still bang screw
in the 99
'Lac, matter fact
Love hate and hate,
It's a fine line
I wrote this one in the red light
in the Dead of night
Word to John the Baptist
I'm just
Trying to get my head right
Word to Saint Peter
I'm just trying to get a key
So I can pay Paul
But they all taxing me
Can't see the forest for the tree
So we chopped it
Write just to light it
Drop the dubee in his pocket
Lent
And when the money's spent
find him with the indigent
Laughing with the lepers
Wondering where it all went
Wrote this one on San Fran cement
Bathing in the morning sun
wondering how could he could repent
said This here's a vent
Cause pressure a pipe buster
Or diamond maker
Just hold on like a mafucker

I wrote this one on the Thames
Contemplating when
Mankind finds that his days must end
In the shadow of Big Ben
Thinking about time
I Been thinking bout yours
I Been thinking bout mine
I Been thinking bout yours
I Been thinking bout mine
I Been thinking bout yours
I Been thinking bout mine

I'm just trying to get my head right
Word to John the Baptist
At this years
Just get it right
Word to Saint Michael
Made the devil take a knee
And lightening told thunder
not to even fuck with me
Word to John the Baptist
I'm just trying to get my head right
my head right
my head right

Word to John the Baptist
I'm just trying to get my head right
my head right
my head right
