lyrics

Jonestown

Put your troubles in a box
and your heart behind the locks
of the safest place you know
to protect you from the blow
of the unforgiving world
so you can be fine
Be fine

Don’t let anyone get close
just keep staring at your shoes
build a shell around yourself
put your life up on the shelf
It’s the safest way you know
so you can be fine
Be fine

And with your lost life in your arms
your revolutionary charms
will you make it there some day
Jonestown, USA
It is heaven on earth they say
but can you be fine
Be fine

Could you save you from yourself
if you moved to somewhere else
Could location be the key
the horizon and the sea
an actor in a different scene
so could you be fine
Be fine

And with your lost life in your arms
your revolutionary charms
will you make it there some day
Jonestown, USA
It is heaven on earth they say
but can you be fine
Be fine

And when your heart 
is breaking
Will you be forsaking love
’Cause no matter 
what you do
we will always love you 
And what could be 
your temple
could also be your downfall
So no matter 
where you turn to
make sure you don’t turn us down
