Downtown Mystic

Listen to Downtown Mystic

  

Downtown was a crazy old clown on the corner everyday
He rant and raged prophesies but no one heard a word he would say
So he salvaged from the trash a beat up Squire guitar
And when he cranked it up loud he sure drew a crowd

To hear the Downtown Mystic singing the news
Join in the chorus
Of the Downtown Mystic singing the news
The end never sounded so good

His reputation grew and grew and people came from miles around
To hear this star, prophet with guitar with his apocalyptic sound
Churches lost most of their flocks, kids ran away from home
To stand in line rain or shine

To hear the Downtown Mystic singing the news
Join in the chorus
Of the Downtown Mystic singing the news
The end never sounded so good

He got a show on HBO his ratings soared to the top
His news made disease and war, famine and hatred stop

Then one day he prophesized he would see visions no more
It's up to you now is all he wrote on a note nailed to his door
They put a statue of him on his corner there downtown
To show our children the site where we all saw the light

As the Downtown Mystic sang the news
We joined in the chorus
When the Downtown Mystic sang the news
The end never sounded so good
