Johnny, angry Johnny
This is Jezebel in Hell

I wanna kill you
I wanna blow you
Away
I wanna kill you
I wanna blow you
Away

I can do it to you gently
I can do it with an animal's grace
I can do it with precision
I can do it with gourmet taste

But either way
Either, either way
I wanna kill you
I wanna blow you
Away

I can do it to your mind
I can do it to your face
I can do it with integrity
I can do it with disgrace

But either way
Either way
I wanna kill you
I wanna blow you
Away

Angry Johnny
This is (This is)
Jezebel in Hell

I can do it in a church
I can do it any time or place
I can do it like an angel
To quiet down your rage

But either way
Either, oh, either way
I wanna kill you
I wanna blow you
Away

I can do it in the water
I can do it on dry land
I can do it with instruments
I can do it with my own bare hands

But either way
Either way, you know where it stands
I wanna kill you
I wanna blow you
Away

Johnny (Johnny)
Angry Johnny
This is (This is)
Jezebel in Hell
Johnny, oh, my Johnny

Where'd your pleasure go
When the pain came through you?
Where'd your happiness go?
This verse is running you around now
Getting you down now
Where's your pleasure now, Johnny?
Where has your pleasure gone now?

Everybody here, it doesn't feel okay

REALPOE.COM Come and find out what she\'s up to See TONS of Pictures \"Center Of The Sun\" was in the XMEN2 soundtrack which you will find on the PLAYLIST at RADIOPARADISE.COM under CONJURE ONE (Poe vocals)and there\'s much more to come!! Inquiries should always be directed to REALProtool@aol.com
Nice voice but that\'s about it, this really does suck.
Does anyone else feel like the chorus line loses some emphasis because she sings \"I wanna blow you\" \"away.\" I don\'t think Im being lame here...I mean, isn\'t she singing about killing this dude?
regardless of what this song means, I think it sucks :eek:
yeah, r/p is now r&b, poe is middle of the road. :roll:
Lyrics are a little disturbing, but I like it! :D
I bought \"Haunted\" and love it. I think it\'s a great album. Because I liked it so much, I went out and bought this CD. It totally sucks. If you hate this song, you\'ll truly hate the rest of Poe\'s work on this CD. It only goes downhill from here.
\"can\'t talk to a psycho like a normal human being\"
God, this song sucks ass.

Is killing someone wrong? You're on your way from Chicago to Washington DC, along the way you pass a mass murderer reloading his weapons of mass destruction... do you A) hit the person with your car, there by killing them and stopping them from inflicting damage on others? or B) drive by and hope the person just "stops" because "killing is wrong" :lol: Ever listen to the lyrics of Tori Amos? There's some pretty messed up stuff there... her way of getting some of it out... and I'm sure Poe's got some darker stuff too.. at least they sound good and you can understand the "wanting" of the songs. :)

Lovely song indeed. I can\'t find a copy of the first version I heard of ANGRY JOHNNY. It was guitar based with less keyboard. More of an edge. I haven\'t heard it since 1995 on a Kalamazoo radio station.
How can you all be so down on a song so laden with innuendo? Poe is one of the most underrated female musicians/songstresses of the past 10 years, IMHO
I don\'t want to die :eek: :moon:
Oh, MAN, I don\'t like Poe. Her voice is nice, the production is good, but the music and especially the lyrics seem so self-indulgent. To me she\'s a big downer!
She has some good stuff but this song is so lame.
only Poe tune i dislike. silly.
Like Poe, but feel a little sensitive about killing, even if she wants to blow him. . . . . away.
The more Poe you play, the more I like \'em. Oh, Johnny. Great tune.
