[Chorus:]
I saw the sky part like the Red Sea
The world is nervous
I saw the Sun cry and bleed
Oh, world is getting nervous
I saw my best friend become my enemy
Ooh, I'm nervous
Everything ain't what It's supposed to be,
You should be nervous

I trust no man on face value, name, or reputation
These are years in my face that came with education
The last of thinkers have all but died out
Or else studied the beast up close - from inside out
From the streets we came -confused, abused creatures
Suspended in the ether, students without a teacher
Gangs without a leader,
Aloof as to how we free the mind
Without the body, should mobility stop
It just kills me how the game simply came and went
Yes, I'm guilty for still looking for my name in print
I spend a while out and in the whatnots;
The joke's on me
I even smiled in my mugshot... to catch the moment
How much confusion have oppressors produced this year?
The blind know not the difference between truth and fear
As with all things, one day I'll be gone from here
But not before I tell the world,
That John was here

[Chorus]

Even here, amongst so many
I stand alone in search for the link between my actions and the way one thinks
Some essence of connection in a world divided
I'm antithetical to rhetoric federal propaganda that sends babies to war
And tells them "fight for the hell of it"

They keep insulting my intelligence
Like everyone out of politics is some nitwit
We'll clash as long as faces of the moon are cyclic
I've seen you entertain your hedonism, breeding your elitism
You told me what I needed on a short list with "freedom" missing
I've been advised to play by the rules-
That's if I ever want to see the light of day in the future

They'd rather see me soft-shoe-shuffling and performing
You tell my brother I love him, I'll be home by morning
You tell my mothers I'm fine and I'm ever theirs dearer
I'm stronger, more determined and I've never thought clearer

"Lock my body, can't trap my mind"
Easily explains how I surpassed the time
How much confusion have oppressors produced this year?
The blind know not the difference between truth and fear
As with all things, one day I'll be gone from here
But not before I tell the world
That John was here
Not before I tell the world, before I tell the world
Not before I tell the world
That John was here

[Chorus]

I lost it all, God, just to earn it again
I saw the doors and had to learn to come in
Despite these dudes' intents
To ride on my strength and hide what I leant
I can't forget the fact the devils just divided my men
And rather unlikely to the psyche, the worst devil
Is the one that looks just like me
Carry on,
How much confusion have oppressors produced this year?
The blind know not the difference between truth and fear
As with all things, one day I'll be gone from here
But not before I tell the world,
That John was here
That John was here, not before I tell the world
That John was here

[Chorus]
