my name is mister jones
I get inside your bones
I know just how to make you tweek
you soon will be my freak

because I know what you need
I control your mind
I roll up your sleeves
I make ties that bind

you'll soon be begging on your knees
you've got the disease
I cant seem to live without you
without you whats the "point"
I wasn't born with a silver burnt spoon
mr. jones do I still have any choice?

    Jim Jones?(not the rapper) it seems to fit. how he deceived people and such. "I control your mind" last verse about the genocide? i really have no Idea. its NOFX so its probably about something random and fictious

    Dammit, wrote a reply instead of a comment. To avoid double-posts i'll probably have to enhance something to my old version... So, here it is: jones -> a fixation on or compulsive desire for someone or something, typically a drug; an addiction

Matt Paxton
Moyet later described how her song "Goodbye 70's" had been inspired by her disillusionment with how the late-1970s punk scene had turned out, saying, "'Goodbye 70's' is about punk and not caring how you were dressed, and then I discovered that so many of my friends that I'd thought it all really meant something to just saw it as another trend... That's what 'Goodbye 70's' was all about, about how sour the whole thing became."

Matt Shadows their lead singer says the song was written as per request from the developers of Call of Duty: Black Ops 4. Watching the initial trailers for the game & looking at production sketches reminded him of the 'S-Town' podcast & its main protagonist, John B. McLemore. Matt also comments specifically on the lyrics: "I decided that the lyrics would shadow McLemore's life." In 2012, antiquarian horologist John B. McLemore sent an email to the staff of the show 'This American Life' asking them to investigate an alleged murder in his hometown of Woodstock, Alabama, a place McLemore claimed to despise. After a year of exchanging emails & several months of conversation with McLemore, producer Brian Reed traveled to Woodstock to investigate. Reed investigated the crime & eventually found that no such murder took place, though he struck up a friendship with the depressed but colorful character of McLemore. He recorded conversations with McLemore & other people in Woodstock. McLemore killed himself by drinking potassium cyanide on June 22, 2015 while the podcast was still in production. In the narrative of the podcast, this occurs at the end of the second episode; subsequent episodes deal with the fallout from McLemore's death while exploring more of McLemore's life & character.
