    Say farewell, g'night, sonny Jim
    In your defenseless, winning smile
    What do you hope to win?
    And bliss face down, defended

    Well, now stoned demon John
    There ain't no town the boy cannot belong
    Why did you come here
    Is it to excavate all your sins, boil within?

    Slaughter like the daughter of the devil you send me
    I have to deal, you called me here
    Can't say that you were juiced the night
    That you were introduced to demon John

    Gonna take him with you when you go
    Dance down slow, oh, way down

    You cannot escape the bar-side angel dissector
    You undo your life with too much cocoon, who's your protector?
    Dark as the city where the white girls walk by
    Down below your eyes, just like fireflies

    You call me here, come on here, follow me dear
    Past cascades of rage and fear, you called me here
    Couldn't say that you had been juiced
    The time that you were introduced to demon John

    Well, you knew you had to want to go
    Dance down slow by the light of the sun

    Murder comes today or tonight
    Better get yourself together and transcend it
    A burst of light blaze stars into me
    While the love breaks through here and now

    So murder by the light of the sun
    Please, don't get too close to me
    You said you are for real, it's not pretend
    All memories stolen, know this for yourself

    How'd you like to be the happiest man in the world?
    Behind the weathered field hands whose blistered paws harvest cut
    For wedding clothes they'll never wear
    Marching down a road that was never there
    It takes place on a sunlit lace and the backbone broken

    Please bring us light, demon John
    You, demon John, take him with you when you go
