In his favorite band shirt
Hanging from the lamp cord
Would have got it done
if it wasn't for his grandma
Stay away from razor blades
What a mess you've made today
He wanted to be Kurt Cobain
but Johnny wouldn't die

But you're young
and you think things last forever
Sleep it off
You'll feel much better

In the garage
Engine running
Feeling funny
Dreaming something
Close your eyes
See death coming
Johnny wouldn't die

Sit in the kitchen
Head in the oven
Feeling funny
Dreaming something
Guess that even God don't want him
Johnny wouldn't die

Life just felt depressing
Waiting, self-obsessing
At the pool at school
he sunk and held his breath in
Stay away from razor blades
What a mess you've made today
He wanted to be Kurt Cobain
but Johnny wouldn't die

But you're young
and you think it won't get better
Nothing lasts forever

In the garage
Engine running
Feeling funny
Dreaming something
Close your eyes
See death coming
Johnny wouldn't die

Sit in the kitchen
Head in the oven
Feeling funny
Dreaming something
Guess that even God don't want him
Johnny wouldn't die

Go Johnny go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go
Go Johnny go
Go to the white light
I'll see you in the next life

Go Johnny go
Go Johnny go go
Go Johnny go
Go Johnny go go
Call to the white light
I'll catch you on the flip side

Johnny wasn't doing well
On a train to Louisville
Nearly overdosed
in the back of a commuter rail
Lay all day with razor blades
Burn out quick and fade away
Say hello to Kurt Cobain
Johnny wouldn't die

But you're young
and you think things last forever
Sleep it off
You'll feel much better

In the garage
Engine running
Feeling funny
Dreaming something
Close your eyes
See death coming
Johnny wouldn't die

Sit in the kitchen
Head in the oven
Feeling funny
Dreaming something
Guess that even God don't want him
Johnny wouldn't die
