  • Do you believe every word, from my lying lips?
    I'll promise you heaven, from an apocalypse
    It's because of the skin, you're living in
    That makes you all so guilty of sin
    I'll quench the thirst, your soul desires
    Because I know, I'm the chosen Messiah
    If you drink the cup, inside of your hand
    You can follow me, to the promised land.

    I've got guns, I've got dynamite
    CNN is my satellite
    You're better not, come inside
    Cos no one here is getting out....alive

    What's your hurry, what's your rush?
    It's easy enough, to be one of us.
    The enemies, that I've made
    Can say hello, to my hand grenade.
    I'll never forget, the promise I made
    Now have a taste of my famous kool aid.

    I've got guns, I've got dynamite
    No one here is gonna mess with me tonight
    You'd better not, come inside
    'Cos no one here, is coming out..... alive........

    My name is Jim Jones
    My name is Jim Jones
    My name is Jim Jones
    Who the hell are you?
    My name is Jim Jones
    My name is Jim Jones
    My name is Jim Jones
    Who the hell are you?

    I will deliver
    'Cos I'm your Reverend Charisma
    And by amphetamine's end
    We'll get to heaven
    If you follow me, follow me
    Get on your knees, and follow me
    If you follow me, follow me
    Get on your knees and follow me......... Writer/s: J. Kidder, K. Bryson, P. Allgood
