Sometimes jacks rule the realm
Can't you tell
The swimmers drown
Without a sound
A chalkboard scratching sound
Could craze the town
An emperor's clothes
Never be exposed

I took it as a compliment
Regardless what they meant
It could have been innocent
Spent, so spent
Railing against undeserved
Dangling precipitants
Raining down idiots
Always flapping in the
Flapping in the wind

I took it as a compliment
No matter what they meant
Could have been belligerent
Could have been half percent
Could have been wanting
Afraid to have been caught promising
Ended up taunting me

I can't change that
I can't change
I can't change that
I can't change

I'm watching you
Not sure what's true
Life can be so cruel
There's nothing you can do
But it fades...
Only to return
I feel your eyes burn
I really am concerned

Sometimes jacks will rule the realm
Sometimes jealousy will dwell
You can't begin to dispel
When you can not even tell

What makes me act the way I do
And why am I asking you
What makes me act the way I do
And why am I asking you
What makes me act the way I do
And why am I asking you

Sometimes jacks will rule the realm
Sometimes jealousy will dwell
You can't begin to dispel
When you can not even tell
Sometimes jacks will rule the realm
Sometimes jealousy will dwell
You can't begin to dispel
When you can not even tell
