children say he brings dreams of faces -- / half carved
from stone --
--- / as if the creator forgot -- / got up to get another
beer from the fridge and never returned
I looked in the water / I saw my eyes / and wondered
how many others may see me / dancin' on the surface
/ like a quiet / johnny
'em down the tracks / beat 'em over the head / back
o' yer axe
were ya watchin' / what were you drinkin' boys / to
beat a man into a coma / middle o' the night / with
his daughter screamin' through the curtains"
an exerpt of Johnny's Fire from throw the captain overboard!
