​Ready

This song is by John Doe and appears on the album Forever Hasn't Happened Yet (2005).

It was black, it was always black
And no one really gave two craps
It was skinny and it was always dark
No one ever knew it would go this far

Her hands, she was always wringing her hands
And worrying about the strangest thing
There are friends and then there are friends
Most of the time you can't tell where one ends and one begins

Johnny's dead and I know why
He stuck a needle in his eye
Johnny's dead but I couldn't cry
'Cause Johnny always seemed ready
Ready, ready

It was hot and it hurt like hell
He sang his song just like breaking a bell
Her wrist it still has a scar
Where he cigarette burned her in her own car

There was lust and some kind of love
But we were all so fucked up
He lied when he said he was ok
But he had possession over his own judgment day

Johnny's dead and I know why
He stuck a needle in his eye
Johnny's dead but I couldn't cry
'Cause Johnny always seemed ready
Ready, ready, ready
