about

"Don't Be Fooled" is not a gospel album. Don't let the name "Johnny the Baptist" fool you. He is not a prophet. He is not here to impose judgement on you, or to force Christianity on you. He is simply, as the original John the Baptist put it, "the voice of one crying from the wilderness".
However, these songs ARE indeed spiritual in nature. They represent the struggle to remain righteous in a wilderness of sin, eventually leading to absolute failure; reduced to the cries of one unsure of if they'll make it to heaven... or anywhere at all.

Welcome to the first installation of the wilderness of Johnny the Baptist.

EXPLICIT LYRIC WARNING. This is NOT "Christian" music. Listener discretion is advised.

Track Name: Tasting A Virgin
Master of your destiny
You feel you're truly in control
You're not in control, you're not in control
Pre-determination

We are so young, but feel so old
We wear long sleeves when it's not even cold
If that night we died, if we reached too high
And killed ourselves while trying to fly
You know our lives would have been fulfilled
We would've laughed at the gates of heaven
Our lives would've been fulfilled
Pre-determination

I don't want to know who else you fucked
I don't want to know who else you've given you're love to
I just want the illusion that i'm tasting a virgin
That i'm tasting a virgin
Are you clean enough for me?

Want the illusion that i'm tasting a virgin
Are you clean enough for me?

This does not feel pure anymore
Track Name: The Stitch-Up
Finally, one of your kind
I place my heart inside your hands
I place my heart inside your hands

Caged by friends turned lovers too long
I patiently wait
I will not cut in line
You'll feel no restraint from me
I can't do that to your kind

I kiss you on the cheek
You tell me not to call you baby
Well I will not call baby if you wish
You say "have you seen the dove?
It'll take flight soon enough"
Well i'm already full from that dish
Yes, i'm already full from that dish

Finally, one of your kind
I place my heart inside your hands
I place my heart inside your hands

Keep it simple, I think not
As humans we love complexity
Bound together, so intricately
You be the needle and the thread
I'll be the seam
So stitch up me
Stitch up me

Stitch up me (x?)
Track Name: Concubine
Met her in the afterglow
How could I not love her?
She don't love Jesus
But i'm sure the pussy's like butter
Darling, please, I need you
Your mind and body's milk and honey
I'll buy you hits and dresses
For you i'll dip into church money

Met her once again in the afterlife
Burned together in both our lives (x2)

We should have saved it until marriage (x2)
Because you're mine
My body like a serpentine concubine
Because you're mine
My sultry little angel hussy concubine
Concubine

Are you a virtuous woman?
Why, i'm not sure yet
I'm willing to dig a lot deeper
At least until one of our deaths
And we will fall into the grave of the hole I dug us
I dig you, you dig me, we dig each other, we dig us
Her angelic image burned into your brain
After too much deep thought of it all
You forgot to take a breath
Well what's wrong with death?
Well, plenty
I just hope I can convince her to sin with me
And then be born again with me
Stranger, I cannot live without you
Sometimes my mouth does strange things out of impulse
It'd do even stranger things to her
Her soul is saying yes
But her head just isn't nodding yet
And her body isn't...

Oh oh oh, concubine
You look so god damn fine
I want to drug you up
So you'll want to be mine
I'll make you think it's God
And you'll think i'm the one
I saw you bathing on my neighbors roof
Now me and my neighbor trading hate for clues
Put him at the front of the line and made him meet that shameful doom
Coveting my neighbors wife though her rose could use a shave or two
Fuck her once then end my life for I wish to die covered in her fumes
Covered in her fumes

We should have saved it until marriage (x2)
Because you're mine
My body like a serpentine concubine
Because you're mine
My perfect little angel hussy concubine
Concubine
Track Name: Stigmatic Nailgazer
I did not make her cry
More so, I let her cry
I'm sure it must have stung when I came into her eyes

I did not force her to believe,
But rather let her be informed
And eventually the benefits will become her sharpened sword

I did not rape the girl
But rather gave her what she deserved
And afterwards she asked me
"Baby, what is for dessert?"

They say I rocked her world when her world was rocked by natural causes
And when she started bleeding I was leaking like a faucet

Leaking like a faucet (x?)
Track Name: Wine Cellar Pt. 1
I am the voice of one crying out from the wilderness
Even more so than before
My first taste of sin, my new sense of bewilderment
Why was I never into this before?

To hell with locusts and wild honey
I'm on the hamburgers ad pizza
Born to raise some fucking terror
For I was once Middle Eastern
Wiping my own blood off the crucifix
Not cut out to be a preacher
Jesus was not born on Christmas
Jesus did not die on Easter

Ooh, you thought that she was yours?
Guess again. She's mine, fella
But if she ever get out of control
You lock her in that wine cellar
Merlot, Chardonnay
Communion, church collection plate
Don't you forget, this is His blood
Maybe the good Lord will get to her

She makes love like it's Valentine's Day on Halloween
She makes love like it's Halloween on Valentine's
This little light of mine
I'm gonna let it grind
Tears in her husband's eyes
They're no concern of mine
This little light of mine, i'm gonna let it grind
She'll make the darkest circle of hell seem like paradise
Paradise

Even though we reside in a lake of fire you still
You still keep me coming
Even though we reside in a hell for the liars you still
You still keep me cumming

Coming, cumming,
My dear
Track Name: Wine Cellar Pt. 2
Even though we reside in a lake of fire
You still keep me cumming
Even though we reside in a hell for liars
You still keep me cumming

Well i've never heard you whisper my name in my ear
No, i've only heard you scream it, my dear (x2)

Lock her in the wine cellar
Throw away the key
She's gonna drink herself to death
And they won't blame thee (x2)

Never heard you whisper my name in my ear
No, i've only heard you scream it, my dear (x2)
My dear

Lock her in the wine cellar
Throw away the key
She'll drink herself to death
And they won't blame me
She'll keep it to herself
With her in hell it will reside
You never knew the truth
You only knew her side
You never knew the truth
She took it with her when she died

Never heard you whisper my name in my ear
No, i've only heard you scream it, my dear (x2)
My dear

Even though we reside in a lake of fire
You still keep me cumming
Even though we reside in a hell for liars
You still keep me cumming

So keep me cumming, angel (x3)
Track Name: Piss Reekin' Abode
Everybody wants to go to your piss reekin' abode
Well honey, i've grown tired of the smell
It's the place that you call home, well honey you're on your own
Rather have a nose full of brimstone in hell

Everybody wants to go to your piss reekin' abode
Well honey, I can't take the chance to stink
I'm a well-respected man, and if i'm seen on your land
I may never be considered clean again

Everybody wants to go, everybody wants to go
Everybody loves the smell of urine in their nose
And there's a girl in the other room
That i'm to shy to go talk to
But the only reason she doesn't love me is because
we've yet to be introduced

Everybody wants to go to your feces creek
Well honey i've grown tired of the sludge
If I can't go my preferred speed then this just ain't what I need
Rather sit at home and watch the toilet flush

Everybody wants to swim, everybody wants to swim
Nobody realizes the deep shit that their in
And there's a woman in the other room
Not confident enough to go talk to
But the only reason she doesn't hate me is because she knows I gotta bone to pick with you

Everybody wants to go (x3)

Everybody wants to go (x3)
And there's somebody in the other room
That i'm too afraid to go talk to
And the only reason he exists
Is because I gave you the time of day

I gave you the time of day (x4)
Track Name: Infinite Lives
I've lost the game again
I've lost the game
Oh I wish that I could play again
But i've lost the game again

I've lost the game again
I've lost the game
Oh I wish my lives were infinite
For i've lost the game again
Track Name: End-Life Crisis
I think i'm hitting my end-life crisis
Bought an Alsatian I couldn't take care of
Lesions in my lungs because I smoke too much
Well I got a little too drunk last night
This seems to happen often
Church in the morning and my head is fucking pounding
And i've lost all faith in humanity
When I look in the mirror it's not a man I see

I don't wanna be human anymore (x2)
Well i've got my blood, i've got my flesh
I think i'm smarter than the rest
And i'm the only thing worth living for
Because there's no life left in humanity
In humanity

Well all of this fornication
Has become my salvation
When I reach the ejaculation
I go to a space station
So don't cut me off, baby
Don't cut me off
You'll sever my limbs if you cut me off from that sweet medicine

Well I know I lust over your flesh
But i'm better at it than the rest
Now get back in this bed and quit acting like you don't want it

Come on, baby
Lay with me (x2)

I'll start believin' when you stop your treason
I'll start believin' then (x2)

I'll start believin' when you stop decievin'
I'll start believin' then

End-life crisis (x?)

Well i've got my blood, i've got my flesh
I think i'm smarter than the rest
And i'm the only thing worth living for
Because there's no life left in humanity
In humanity
Track Name: Don't Be Fooled
There's a lot of people in this world that claim they're truly righteous
But when they were young they were always truants of Sunday school
As I come down from the mountain, I see dying all around
Not of earthly form but death of spirit
It's like Sodom and Gomorrah
All over again
Can't believe my own hometown
So tainted in sin
Yeah, you all fucking need Jesus
You all fucking need God
The high from the Holy Spirit's
Stronger than that shitty coke you're on

Don't be fooled
Even roses have thorns
Just like the love of a whore gives sores
And the valiant knight with blood on his sword
Through my sins, I pray I may walk with the Lord
(Amen!)

And you'll never find your spirit in a bottle of spirits, child
By now you should know this very well
Stick with the wine and the herbs and what comes from the Earth
But remember excess is a gold ticket to Hell
Don't stick your phallus in the chalice unless you're married in spirit
Legal documentation's a new thing, you don't need it
Just make sure your love is true
That's what the Lord wants you to do
These are my contemporary commandments to you
Perceive them how they are perceived by you
And most of all

Don't be fooled
Even roses have thorns
Just like the love of a whore gives sores
And the valiant knight with blood on his sword
Through my sins, I pray I may walk with the Lord
(Amen!)

(Hallelujah! (x4))

I am a vampyre (I am a vampyre)
For the blood of Jesus
I am a vampyre (I am a vampyre)
For the blood of the lamb
(x2)

Don't be fooled
Even roses have thorns
Track Name: You're Going To Hell
You're good at making bad decisions
I'm good at having things to hide
And always when I threaten to skedaddle
Every time, you threaten suicide
Just when I thought I couldn't hate you any greater
Baby, look at who you are now
Baby, I am your creator

The other night you drank your weight in whiskey
As I puffed on that tainted cigar
And the entire time you told me how much you've missed me
And I say "Baby, I did not miss you at all"
Just when you thought you could've made me any better
It seems I did the more construction on you
I can't leave you behind
But I can't wait on you

I can't wait on you
I can't wait

I swear i'm fine, leave me alone
Cut me up another line of that coke
We couldn't even save it until the morning
I feel something new in the atmosphere
It's something that makes me wish you weren't here
Could I once again be seeing Jesus?

Just when I thought I couldn't perceive you as more wicked
I see the sins in you
That can never be forgiven

They can never be forgiven
They can never be

You're going to hell (x4)
Track Name: Seed Swallower
I broke down all your walls
Now you got nowhere to hide
I broke down all your walls
You are naked to my eye
Like a poetic justice
Like a didactic practice
Witchcraft and black magic
You got the soul of Jezebel and Delilah
You should remain here in this asylum
Cease their heartbreak, cease their cryin'
Solitary confinement
And you'll feel so out of place
Like a flosser among the leaves
It's such a fall from grace
To fall so far from the tree
Everything in it's right place
Like the Radiohead song
You said "baby, I need some space"
That's when everything went wrong

I've wrestled with the Devil
I've conversed with the Lord
I'm on a different level
You got a face-full of porn
You got that sexual demon
(sexual demon) [several times)

Cut off your hand if it causes you to sin
Pluck out your eye if it causes you to sin
Cut off your dick if it causes you to sin
Your head from the neck, if it causes you to sin

You got a throat full of cum
You got a mouthful of seed
You've got the power to deceive
But you won't get a load off of me
Cum swallower
Cum swallower
Seed swallower
Seed swallower
Track Name: Blacking Outro
I don't believe in anything that I see
But what hurts the most
Is that i'm a mortal that eats and sleeps and breathes
But I just wanna get drunk
I just wanna get plastered
Live fast and die young
Get to Heaven faster
