"I Found Out" as written by and Lennon....
I told you before stay away from my door
Don't give me that brother, brother, brother, brother
The freaks on the phone won't leave me alone
So don't give me that brother, brother, brother, bROTHER
I, I found out
I, I found out

Now that I showed you what I been through
Don't take nobody's word what you can do
There ain't no Jesus gonna come from the sky
Now that I found out I know I can cry
I, I found out
I, I found out

Some of you sitting there with your cock in your hand
Don't get you nowhere, don't make you a man
I heard something bout my ma and my pa
They didn't want me so they made me a star
I, I found out
I, I found out

Old hare Krishna got nothing on you
Just keep you crazy with nothing to do
Keep you occupied with pie in the sky
There ain't no Guru who can see through your eyes
I, I found out
I, I found out

I been through junkies, I been through it all
I've seen religion from Jesus to Paul
Don't let them fool you with dope and cocaine
No one can't do you no harm you to feel your own pain
I, I found out
I, I found this out
I, I found out

    General CommentI heard something 'bout my Ma and my Pa
    They didn't want me so they made me a star

    I bet those two lines had a lot of meaning to John Lennon

    General CommentBasically, he "found out" not to bother getting his beliefs from others, just rely on yourself to find out what is true. As Dylan said: "don't follow leaders, watch the parking meters."

    General Comment'There ain't no jesus gonna come from the sky. Now that, I found out, I know I can cry'.

    We are taught ideas from a young age. It takes life experience and exposure to other ideas and facts to shake some of the falsehoods off. It's disappointing in a way (to Lennon) to find out Jesus isn't going to help any, after being taught about rewards and justice and faith. It's also possible that he meant he found out that jesus isn't real, and now he can cry out to people, he discovered the truth, saying the next (tag) line, "I found out!'

    General CommentBrilliant song. It's about John's journey through the sixties and his frustration with the hare krishna types and fellow peaceniks. The red hot chili peppers covered this very well.
