    Lyrics

    (Verse: Priscilla)
    Seems like your heart stops workin
    The minute they close the curtain
    You take off your mask and take off your costume
    And if anyone asks, you're taking a small break
    And drinking some coffee
    But everyone knows what you're doing
    Seems like the bus moves slower
    Just 'cause you got somewhere to go
    So you take a few pills in Beverly Hills
    But if anyone asks, you've got a prescription
    You got an addiction
    Who do you think that you're foolin?

    (Chorus: Priscilla)
    John Doe!
    I just want the John I know
    Once you put the drinks on hold
    Maybe you could come back home
    John Doe

    Oh oh oh,

    (Verse: B.o.B)
    Uh, everybody's addicted to something
    Everybody gotta grip onto something
    Even if it's just to feel the responsive appeal
    Maybe once, maybe twice, maybe hundreds of times
    Hundreds of times
    Without it it's just harder to function at times
    You race to the bottom of every single bottle
    As if there was someone or something to find
    You struggle in yo mind and you chose strobe light
    Have to lie til you get to the point where it's no longer vibin
    The people that you work with notice the signs
    When you walk in the room, niggas know that's required
    So you break up the silence
    You say you've been at the gym
    But the way that you look can't blame on a diet
    So what you hidin?

    (Chorus: Priscilla)
    John Doe!
    I just want the John I know
    Once you put the drinks on hold
    Maybe you could come back home
    John Doe

    Oh oh oh,

    (Verse: B.o.B)
    I probably had too many things, smashed too many freaks
    Had too much to drive, I mean had too much to drink
    Left the club, ended up in custody
    Ran them drug tests, passed it luckily
    My girl broke with me cus she walked in and suddenly
    With a woman up under me I told er
    "Wait! It ain't what it look like
    I must've slipped and fell, clumsy me"
    Well at least I admit
    Cus the worst you could do is to do it
    and not be man enough to say that you did it
    That's just how you prevent it
    But I ain't no different
    I love all the money, the fame and the parties with beautiful women
    I spent so much time as an underground artist
    Cus I was afraid to succumb to the business and what I've become
    But that what you judge will become
    The path with the greatest resistance
    That's how the tables can turn when they pivot
    And change your perspective and flip your entire position
    My whole life I've been dyin and wishin
    To live and experience everything possible
    When I told em my dreams they just said it ain't logical
    Now I can see it, it's optical

    Oh oh oh,

    (Chorus: Priscilla)
    John Doe!
    I just want the John I know
    Once you put the drinks on hold
    Maybe you could come back home
    John Doe
