My face is slack
And kidneys burn
In the small of my back
Will never learn

Well I'm not going back
To the slow life
Because every step is a drag
And pieces of kite

Of materials you never catch
Come up for a snatch
Up from hell
Once in a while

Cause I am Jack
From a burning ring
My face is slack
And I think think think

I just think think think
Too fast to write
Too fast to work
Just burn burn burn

I sat and drank
While my dreams decay
I'm 45
Cause I am Jack

From a burning ring
And my face is slack
And I think think think
I just drink drink drink

Too fast to write
Too fast to work
I just burn burn burn
I eat hot dogs

I live on pies
I'm 45
Cause I am Jack
And I think think think

Just think think think
Too fast to write
Too fast to work
Just burn burn burn

And put down left-wing tirades
And the musical trade
End free trade
I say eat this grenade

Gonna eat this grenade
Cause I am Jack
Some man from the docks
They are smart

Their brains are half
They never end
Just follow trends
But I am Jack

From a burning ring
My face is slack
And I think think think
Just think think think

Too fast to write
Too fast to work
I just burn burn burn
I am Jack

And put down left-wing tirades
And the musical trade
End all free trade
I said eat this grenade

I said eat this grenade
End all free trade
I said eat this grenade

The Fall

The Fall are an English post-punk band, formed in Prestwich, Greater Manchester, in 1976. With an ever-changing line up, the group essentially consists of its founder and only constant member, Mark E. Smith, who has said "If it's me and your granny on bongos, then it's [the] Fall". First associated with the late 1970s punk movement, the band's music has evolved through numerous stylistic changes, often concurrently with changes in the group's membership. The Fall's music is characterised by repetition, an abrasive guitar-driven sound, and is always underpinned by Smith's often cryptic lyrics, described by critic Steve Huey as "abstract poetry filled with complicated wordplay, bone-dry wit, cutting social observations, and general misanthropy." more »
