Johnny Q. Public – Reader's Digest lyrics

(l. Norman)
Alice is a drag queen
Bowie, something in between
Other bands are looking mean
Me, I'm trying to stay clean
I don't dig the radio
I hate what the chart's pick
Rock and Roll may not be dead
But it's getting sick
All over the world disc jockeys talk insane
Every town I play is like I'm wondering why I came
The Rolling Stones are trillion-aires
The flower children, paul bearers
Beatles said "All you need is love"
And then they broke up
River took an overdose
Kurt followed so close
The whole music scene and all the
Bands are really comatose
This time last year, people didn't wanna hear
They looked at Jesus from afar, they say He's a superstar
Dear John
Who's more popular now
I've been listening to Paul's records

And I think he really is dead
It's nineteen-ninety-four
Teen Spirit has become a bore
Who's in power now?
I think I'll turn on the tv
The man on the news says
Japan is gonna beat use
We shot all our dreamers
And there's noone left to lead us
We need a solution, we need salvation
So they sent some people to the moon to gather information
They brought back a big bag of rocks
It only cost 13 billion buckaroos
Must be some really nice rocks
You think it's such a sad thing
When you see a fallen king
Then you find out they are only
Princes to begin with
Everybody has to chose
Whether they will win or lose
Follow God or sing the blues
And who they're gonna sin with
What a mess the world is in, I wonder who began it
Don't ask me, I'm only visiting the planet
This world is not my home
I'm just passing through
