Outside, my door
I locked, I loaded
And this sound
That you might know well
Know well

Wheels turnin'
Scratching and burnin', yeah
I saw guns, tanks
Cannon
Cannon, yeah!

Tell me who's that writin'
John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin'
John the Revelator
Who's that writin'
John the Revelator wrote the book of the Seven Seals

Christ went down on Easter mornin'
Mary Mother went down to see
"Go tell my disciples, to meet me in Galilee"

Who's the writer?
John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writin'
John the Revelator
Tell me who's that writer
John the Revelator wrote the book of the Seven Seals
Yeah!

Lord above
How can man
Be evil?
Evil
Yeah!

    John the disciple of christ lord jesus, wrote the book of revelations. At one point in jack white's life he was going to become a pastor, maybe that has something to do with it.
