"Jonestown" as written by and Johnette Lin Napolitano....
Sheep are running scared tonight
The cows are coming home
They cling together terrified
Afraid to be alone
The bees are buzzing loud and clear

Waiting for a word
The ? are ? the scene?
Collectively absurd

They're looking for Jesus
They're looking for more
Just what are they looking up here to me for

They're looking for someone
They're looking for Christ
They're looking for some human sacrifice

It looks like Jonestown again
It looks like Jonestown
It looks like Jonestown again
It looks like Jonestown

They don't know who to run to
They don't know where to go
Unless you tell them what to think

They don't know what they know
Repeating the commercial
Something they have heard

From someone not they someone else
Somebody good with words
I think they're looking for an answer
They're looking for more
Just what are they looking up here to me for

They're looking for Jesus
They're looking for Christ
They're looking for some human sacrifice

It looks like Jonestown again
It looks like Jonestown again
It looks like Jonestown again
It looks like Jonestown again
They're looking for an answer

They're looking for more
Just what are you looking up here to me for
They're looking for Jesus
They're praying for Christ
They're looking for some human sacrifice

It looks like Jonestown
It looks like Jonestown
It looks like Jonestown
It looks like Jonestown

Jonestown
Jonestown
