J's Journal:
You can't explain the full story of antichrist with just one book of the Bible. Oh really? Sure, the book of Revelation includes much of the details, especially in chapter 13, but the seeker will find plenty of other pertinent passages in Daniel 11, 2 Thessalonians 2, 1 John 3, and Matthew 24. Those chapters join together to paint a portrait of a false peacemaker who strikes a bargain with the nations to become a substitute messiah. But behind those blue eyes lurks the cold heart of a beast. Who is he? Nobody knows for sure, but he could appear anyway, anyhow, anywhere -- maybe even in our generation. You better read the Bible to find out what's (and who's) next. This parody was written back in the mid-90's, but it had to wait many years before we recorded it. With each CD, it would come into consideration and not make the final cut. In fact, we almost took it off "Wordplay" to make room for another track, but our keyboard player, Bill "Wild Thing" Hubauer, fought to keep it on, and we're so glad he did.

Won't Get Born Again
Parody of "Won't Get Fooled Again" by The Who
(Revelation 13-19; 2 Thessalonians 2; 1 Thessalonians 5:1-3; Romans 11; Zecheriah 12:8-11; Hosea 1:10-11; Zephaniah 1:14-18)

They'll be frightened of the beast
And they still will have no peace
And the hero that they worshipped will be gone
And the man who spurred them on
The one they thought could do no wrong
Is a tyrant a lot like Genghis Khan

A tip I have for the United Nations:
Take a browse through the book of Revelation
Bible says there's a stranger comin' round
Who'll specialize in charm and grace -- pacify every race
But he led all the people astray
Who don't get born again

A savior had to come they knew it all along
But they never read about the one that's false
And the world will bless his name it's a mystery and a shame
'Cause the man that they love won't win the last war
A tip I have for the United Nations:
Think about what you'll do on that occasion
Bible says there's a stranger comin' round
Who'll shoot up like a star in flames can't quite guess his name
But he'll get all the people to pray
Who don't get born again no, no

He'll fool the world when he finally arrives
They'll be happy till they're left out to dry
He'll get all the nations to buy into his lie
But I know that the Israelites won't comply -- Will ya?
LEAD

Yeahhhh!
And nothing is complete till all of Israel is redeemed
It's in Romans verse 11:25
And the Lord will heal the rift
In all the hearts of Israelites
And the people and their God will both unite
A tip I have for the United Nations:
Wake up now to the dude in Revelation
Smile and grin when there's peace all around
(Don't) forget about the price you'll pay there on Judgment Day
When you get on your knees and pray
But won't get born again
Won't get born again no, no
LEAD

Yeahhhhhhhhhhhhh!
Meet the true God name is Jehovah


2 Thessalonians 2:11-12
For this reason God sends them a powerful delusion so that they will believe the lie and so that all will be condemned who have not believed the truth but have delighted in wickedness.
