Such a fantastic fool you are, nothing but the best, mad Jack
To chase after such an unworthy woman! around such an old world
So hell-bent to be her savior you would draw a circle for the devil
Ask for what you wanted and sign your silly soul away
I'd know your hair, your eyes, and your bent nose on any street tonight
I plan to put a shiver on your skin and give back the grit into your teeth
The question is, were they always such a sheer and stainless white, your teeth?
Did you ever tell your lady-love how very faithless was her Jack?
Grime and soot lend a green tint to the thick killer's fog tonight
In a little spineless city that could be any little city in the world
I skim my fingers soft on the seam of your suit to watch you squirm away
What hope you have, reluctant hero, of hurting the feelings of a devil!
The piper must be paid and you must give your price back to the devil
Her memory to be discarded, become a curse trapped behind your teeth
Search inside for what has changed sin
