lyrics

Sometimes my memories
Lead down this broken road
Alongside all the casualties and losers
And though the details
Barely matter anymore
One night of darkness still pursues us

She wore that face
No-one could penetrate
I smiled that smile
I never could hide

Somewhere in Jonestown
My childhood disappeared
One final showdown
That burned away the years
No-one leaves Jonestown
Unless they leave in tears
Don't go to Jonestown -
It's everything you feared

Someone once told me
What glittered wasn't gold
But I was too enlightened to believe him
I tried to find you
As I stumbled through the night
But couldn't look behind as I was leaving

She'd worn that face
No-one could penetrate
I'd smiled the smile
I never could hide

Somewhere in Jonestown
My childhood disappeared
One final showdown
That burned away the years
No-one leaves Jonestown
Unless they leave in tears
Don't go to Jonestown
It's everything you feared

Hey Joe, get out of the way
Somebody's got a hold on me
Go on, get out of my way
Somebody's got a hold
On me
