"Jack" as written by and George Michael Eric Matthew....
I, I am a bastard son
Conceived of a hundred men
Now I'm the Chosen One
Back, looking back
Father William called me Johnny
But my mother called me Jack

I, I scream out to you
As I see them take you
Hell, it put me through
You, you gave me life
Then ripped out my emotion
And replaced it with a knife

I cut you once, I cut you twice
You're my midnight sacrifice
You shamed me, you shame God
You scream my name, and now you're gone

I've seen the rain wash over you a thousand times
Your flesh summons me
God knows why
Repent your sins to me

Now, you're no different now
Still the same, the Devil's whore
Lilith on the prowl
I, I've got something for you
I know what real pain is
And you will too

I cut you once, I cut you twice
You're my midnight sacrifice
You shamed me, you shame God
You scream my name, now you're gone

    General CommentThis song is Matt Barlow's take on the original serial killer, Jack the Ripper. In the song it is "Johnny's" prostitute mother who plants the seed that makes him what he becomes.

    General CommentGreat song, and, if you know anything about psychology and/or serial killers, this song makes a lot of sense on how/why "Jack the Ripper" killed as many prostitutes as brutally as he did..

    General CommentAs mentioned, obviously about the Jack the Ripper murders.

    Awesome song, my fav part is the build-up during : "I've seen the rain wash over you a thousand times
    Your flesh summons me
    God knows why
    Repent your sins to me"

    Then it just goes crazy. I love it!

    General CommentIt's a wicked song and i love the part

    I...I scream out to you
    As I see them take you
    Hell, it put me through
    You...you gave me life
    Then ripped out my emotion
    And replaced it with a knife
    it just makes ya think.

    General CommentThey seem to use the phase "chosen one" a lot in their songs.
