The Jester Lyrics - Sum 41

Review The Song (4)



A jester of sorts
You stand holding your courts
Over minions on capital hill
In a bath full of blood
I'm alone standing still
Under God you can fire at will

And when the Devil's angels come
To take your life and lead you
To the flames beneath
Your headstone reads now
Here lies the dead who was
Hung by his head beneath us
They're laying in their graves
Damnation free for all

A prodigal son
Can't undo what he's done
A figure head of capital crime
With a light shining down
As you fall to your knees
To repent would be nothing but lies

And when the Devil's angels come
Take your life and lead you
To the flames beneath
Your headstone reads now
Here lies the dead who was
Hung by his head beneath us
They're laying in their graves
Damnation free for all


la la la la la la la la la la la (hey!) (hey!).....

Dead beat
Six feet
Dead underground

An eye for an eye only leaves us all blind
Going once twice there goes your life

And when the Devil's angels come
Take your life and lead you
To the flames beneath
Your headstone reads now
Here lies the dead who was
Hung by his head beneath us
They're laying in their graves
Damnation free for all

An era of dissent | Reviewer: Rick | 7/12/10

This is definitely one hell of a song, and extremely direct as well, as is clear with the reference to capitol hill.

All in all a powerful message, with a ridiculously addictive melody, I find myself listening to the intro over and over.

9/10 (only a 9 because the rest of lyrics couldn't really hold a candle to the grandiose intro.)



dont think so | Reviewer: scrub58 | 9/1/09

dude they're canadian (and canada-based for that matter)... it'd be kinda silly if they wrote a song about another country's politics. i know so because i'm not american myself, and quite frankly, couldn't care less about Bush or US politics in general.



Nonspecific meaning | Reviewer: Ace | 8/22/09

Yep, most likely considered political (I'm sick of politics and I'm sick of insults to Bush -- you think YOU can lead the country?), but like with most Sum 41 songs, the meaning is not fixed in stone. This can be interpreted a number of ways, most involving less-than-savory people being (essentially) damned to Hell. Literally. The band tends to make quite a lot of those religious references, referring often to God or to saviors and the like. I'm a Christian myself, so this ticks me off a lot, but to each his own.



Political Punk Rock | Reviewer: Des | 9/7/07

Political song like "March of the Dogs". George Bush is "The Jester" in this song. Its fun to play and sing to.
