Oh, Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack,
Jackie Lace Back, oh!
Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack.
Oh, Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack,
Jackie Lace Back, oh!
Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack.

I wanna live in the penthouse apartment
Of a condemned building with you.
Yeah, as New Detroit is fucking flooding,
We float around on the skyscraper island.

Oh, Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack,
Jackie Lace Back, oh!
Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack.

We've got a view of the dirty sea rising.
Women float by on rafts made of vulture wings.
So call me the Goddamn wolf at the crystal piano.

Jack, Jack,
Jackie Lace Back, Back
New, New,
New Detroit's desolate.
Jack, Jack, Jack, Jack,
Jackie Lace Back, Back.
New, New, New, New,
New Detroit's desolate.

We've got our own undersea nation.
Yes we do!
We've got a private sun and moon.
Yes we do!
We've got faces like a natural disaster.
Yes we do!
Listen to my heart:
Boom, boom, boom, boom.

We've got a view of the end of all the Earth.
Children float by on Coca-Cola billboards.
So call me the Goddamn wolf at the crystal piano.
So call me the Goddamn wolf at the crystal piano.

    General CommentI think it's about how we all fuck up and make huge mistakes but pretend it isn't happening, even though we all know it's true.
    Maybe the kids on the coca-cola billboards and women on vulture-wing rafts trying to escape, even though the sea keeps on rising represents how we're trying to save ourselves with the things that got us into trouble in the first place, or how we try to compromise and how it never works. Or something.
