"Mr. Jack" as written by Daron Malakian, Serj Tankian, Shavo Odadjian and John Dolmayan....
Hey Mr. Jack
Is that the mouthwash in your eyes?
Hey Mr. Jack
Is that the cause of your surprise?

Hey where you at?
On the side of the freeway in the car
Hey where you at?
On the side of the freeway in the car
In the car
On the side of the freeway in the

Hey Mr. Jack
Is that the trick of your disguise?
Hey Mr. Jack
Is that the cause of your demise?

Hey where you at?
On the side of the freeway in the car
Hey where you at?
On the side of the freeway in the car
On the side of the freeway in the car
In the car
On the side of the freeway in the car

Seven a.m. morning
Came to take us away
Little men
Big guns
Pointed at our heads

Seven a.m. morning
Came to take us away
Little men
Big guns
Pointed at our heads
At our
At our heads

Your prospect of living gone
You ran the light at dawn
Protectors on your back
Lights are on their track

You must now face authority
You're nothing like me
You must now face authority
You're nothing like me

Put your hands up
Get out of the car
Put your hands up
Get out of the car
Put your hands up
Get out of the car

Fuck you pig
Fuck you pig
Fuck you pig
Fuck you pig
Put your hands up
Get out of the car

    General Commentthis is obviously a song trashing cops

    interesting factoid:
    this song has gone througt the most name changes that any other soad song

    back in 95' when the song was written, it was called P.I.G.
    when the song was recorded onto a demo tape, it was caleld (bacon) but the real title remain P.I.G. many soad websites referred to the song as "P.I.G. (aka Bacon)"
    when these songs were take from system's studio, the hacker made up names for all of them, this one was titled "on the sid eof the freeway" becuase the hacker wasn't as knowledgable in soad as some are
    now there is the working title for when and if the song is put onto an album.. which is Mr, Jack

    persoanlly, i prefer P.I.G. (aka Bacon)

    General CommentI hate to point this out, but the guy who talked about pedophiles was the only one so far to comment on the possible meaning of this song. Maybe someone can make an entry called "System of a Down" where people can brag about memorizing tivia

    General Commentim still calling it pig i dont care what the real name is. this and american dream are by FAR my favorite of the nre songs. does anyone know if the intro is played on bass or guitar? it sounds like bass because the opening note sounds like it has too much low end to be guitar but then aerials fooled me into thinking that shavo played in the intro and he doesnt. i figured the whole song out already but i just wanna make sure if its bass or not.

    General Commenti knows it on bass, mxtabs.net always has too many tabs awaiting aproval so i cant post them on there. and im not entirely sure about my tabs for it. i could post them on here but i dont know if i should, since its a site for song meanings, but then again most of the people on here just argue with each other anyway and dont even mention their interpretation of the song so whatever, ill think about it.

    General Comment93??? thats probably every song on both cds which would equal up to 28 including arto, then the other 15 newly released songs, 43, damn almost half way there, then the 3 toxicity b sides, 46, then all the others, i was gonna try to name them all but its a waste of time. do you got yahoo messanger??? cuz i found out that people can send mp3's through there. thats only if youre willing ot send them to me, im the biggest soad fan i know, all i think about is them pretty much, so uh yeah. this post was completely pointless now wasnt it?
