Mojave Rain

Uncle Jonny

When everybody else refrained
My uncle Jonny did cocaine
He's convinced himself right in his brain
That it helps to take away the pain
Hey Jonny
Hey what you say Jonny

I wanna go out tonight
Come a little closer to the city lights
Levitation ain't your only friend
Levitation coming back again

You feel a burning in your body core
It's a yearning that you can't ignore
And I wanna go out tonight
S-s-superman and hold on tight
He's convinced himself right in his brain
That it helps to take away the pain
Hey, Jonny
Hey what you say Jonny

My appetite ain't got no heart
I said my appetite ain't got no heart
Shocking people when you feel that pull
Shock 'em drop 'em when you know its full

I feel a burning in my body core
It's a yearning that you can't ignore
Now I gotta go out tonight
Hey Jonny I got faith in you man
I mean it, it's gonna be all right
And he's convinced himself right in his brain
That it helps to take away the pain
Hey, Jonny
Hey what you say Jonny

(Tell us what's going on)
(Feels like everything's wrong)
Hey what you say Jonny
(If the future is real)
(Jonny, you've got to heal)
Hey what you say Jonny

When everybody else refrained
My uncle Jonny did cocaine
