Poor Jackie Lyrics - Man Man



Review The Song (1)


Jackie hits the streets
she swears that all she sees
is the hunger in their eyes
and the desperation in their speech

Jackie hunts the shadows
with a bowie knife at her elbows
she cuts free those horrible drums
that beat like bats
under their sternums
she wears their fear around her neck

(I heard it all)
(from shady streets)
(she travels light)
(on angel feet)
(best watch your back, if I were you)
(her body's warm)
(???)

Jackie's still on the loose
as the detectives gathered clues
so she tattoos a mustache above her lip
shaves her head
curses god for those hips
that sway when the beat plays
cant give away she ain't no man

and I don’t see what everybody
sees in your sexy body
all I see
is a shallow grave
trapped inside a pretty face

rescue me
is written on your bed
home is where the bullet lands
as it travels through your head
and I believe
that all I need to set me free
is for someone someday somewhere to murder me

and I don’t see what everybody
sees in your sexy body
all I see
is a shallow grave
trapped inside a pretty face

and I walk the same cold streets
overhear the same heartbeats
and I tune my drum just right
so you can come set it off in the night
and I want to be embraced by you
and see our violent paths collide
I want to crawl in your autumn mouth and
feel the crows pick me apart inside
and everything that they said is true
I’m on a downward spiral towards you
and I’ll fight through the positive steps as
I hurtle towards my final descent
and I need to get back to you
and lay this heavy head in your lap
cause these days nothing makes more sense
than the dance towards the inevitable end
and I’m wearing virginal white for you
don’t you see
so please come with your sharpened knives
and murder me
and I’m wearing virginal white for you
don’t you see
so please come with your sharpened knives
and murder me
cause I’m wearing virginal white for you
don’t you see
and my eyes are more open now
than they'll ever be

(why's it got to be)
(I heard it all before)
(cause it don’t always end)
(the way it ended before)
(why's it got to be)
(I've heard it all before)
(cause it don’t always end)
(the way it ended before)
There ain’t no god here
(why's it got to be)
as far as I can see
(I’ve heard it all before)
your god of hope and light
(cause it don’t always end)
never did nothing straight by me
(the way it ended before)
There ain’t no god here
(why's it got to be)
as far as I can see
(I’ve heard it all before)
your god of hope and light
(cause it don’t always end)
never did nothing straight by me
(the way it ended before)
There ain’t no god here
(why's it got to be)
as far as I can see
(I’ve heard it all before)
your god of hope and light
(cause it don’t always end)
never did nothing straight by me
(the way it ended before)
There ain’t no god here
(why's it got to be)
as far as I can see
(I’ve heard it all before)
your god of hope and light
(cause it don’t always end)
never did nothing straight by me
(cause it don’t always end)
There ain’t no god here
(cause it don’t always end)
as far as I can see
(cause it don’t always end)
your god of hope and light
(cause it don’t always end)
never did nothing straight by me
(cause it don’t always end)
There ain’t no god here
(cause it don’t always end)
as far as I can see
(cause it don’t always end)
your god of hope and light
(cause it don’t always end)
never did nothing straight by me
(cause it don’t always end)
(cause it don’t always end)
(cause it don’t always end)
(cause it don’t always end)
(cause it don’t always end)

Wow | Reviewer: Theodore | 4/24/11

Everything about this song; the structure, the lyrics, the music, is just amazing. From the change in music when it goes from describing Jackie to [what I think is] him describing how much he wants to die at her hands to the eerie chants at the end, everything is just so well done. Definitely my favourite Man Man song.
