John the Revelator, put him in an elevator
Take him up to the highest high
Take him up to the top where the mountains stop
Let him tell his book of lies

John the Revelator, he's a smooth operator
It's time we cut him down to size
Take him by the hand and put him on the stand
Let us hear his alibis

By claiming God as his holy right
He's stealing a God from the Israelites
Stealing a God from the Muslim too
There is only one God through and through

Seven lies multiplied by seven
Multiplied by seven again
Seven angels with seven trumpets
Send them home on the morning train

Well, who's that shouting
John the Revelator
All he ever gives us is pain
Well, who's that shouting
John the Revelator
He should bow his head in shame

By and by
By and by
By and by
By and by

Seven lies multiplied by seven
Multiplied by seven again
Seven angels with seven trumpets
Send them home on the morning train

Well, who's that shouting
John the Revelator
All he ever gives us is pain
Well, who's that shouting
John the Revelator
He should bow his head in shame

By and by
By and by (John the Revelator)
By and by (John the Revelator)
By and by (John the Revelator)
