screaming john lyrics – sonia dada

blue blue mary
blue blue mary
and screaming john

screaming john had a broken heart

he was outside crying all alone
in the parking lot

’cause his brother had left
half alone and half together

he’d sit up late at night
and have to wonder had he lived or died

’cause he was thinkin’
but he didn’t know why

he’d go uder the screaming sky
lookin’ at the water reflecting the city lights
and he’d howl at the crescent moon

but he didn’t know why
and he was all alone
he was all alone

blue blue mary
blue blue mary
and screaming john

the last to leave when the war was through
stabbing at imaginary enemies
tryin’ to run’em all through

and when the moon stabbed down
white light in streams
johnny panic fell asleep and had to wrestle
with the dragons in his dreams

like a knight from round table
he was screaming john and he was all alone
and he was lookin’ for home

all alone in the middle of the night
he went crazy by the candlelight

before his final madness came
he had a vision of god on an elevated train
grieving for the anguish of his lonely lonely boy

and mary’s teardrops fell like rain
and the fields were ripe to bloom again

and the sisters of babylon dressed in red were singing for his soul

come on johnny let me sing it to you
come on johnny let me take you home

blue blue mary
blue blue mary
and screaming john
