Close friend of mine as a child fell into a slumber
Then one day he just, what do you know

"I've been awake about a week
If he could put me back to sleep"
"Hey all the girls they look the same"
Paid in blood, and tears to change
But the words that made me cry
It stayed with me, it keeps messing with my head
Then how come John and Elvis are dead?"
Youth, beautiful youth
And said "Change it, it's ugly just change it"
Must have given up, so long ago
And the inside of their clothes
But the words that made me cry
He turned to me and said
Then how come John and Elvis are dead?"
"Tell me if Jesus Christ is alive and well

How come peace, love and Elvis are dead?"
