Johnny Mathis' Feet Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I laid all my songs at Johnny Mathis' Feet
I said "Johnny, Johnny tell me, won't you tell me how to live?
All my hopes are unraveling and I just lost my lease
On a house without love, doors or windows
Without peace"
Verse 2
And with a wave of his jewel-encrusted hand
Across a glittering Las Vegas scene,
He said: "You've got to learn how to disappear
In the silk and amphetamines."
Verse 3
Johnny looked at my songs, and he said
"Well, at first guess,
Never in my life have I ever seen such a mess;
Why do you say everything as if you were a thief?
Like what you stole has no value,
And like what you preach is far from belief?"
Verse 4
And with a wave of his red, and blue hand
Across a glittering Hollywood scene,
He said, "You've got to learn how to disappear
In the silk and amphetamines."
Verse 5
Johnny looked at my collection of old punk rock posters
Anonymous scenes of disaffection, chaos and torture
And he said, "You are on the right track,
But you are a lamb jumping for the knife,
A real showman knows how to disappear in the spotlight"
