Jon the Baptist
you’ve got a righteous kind of way,
go ‘head and tell all the people about the approaching golden age
I would not stop you from what you’re doing

Jon the savior for my feeble aching heart,
I heard your voice crying out from the alps like a beacon from the dark —
I would not stop you from what you’re doing
(I could never clothe you in chains)
You, one of few who could save my soul from going to flames…

Jon the Baptist,
I cannot believe what my eyes do see
Jon the Baptist,
Offering his sacred heart to me,
But for a moment, still…
The Baptist
Hands touching my skin they do free my soul
I’m telling you the Baptist
Let’s me leave my sins all at the door
But for a moment, still….

I would like to see you once more
Standing on that eastern shore but,
I know that you have so much left to do

Jon the Baptist
Jon, Jon the revelation that there’s nobody else, but you’ve got a few more souls so save from burning in hell
Jon the Baptist
Jon, the savior for my feeble aching heart, the Baptist.
