i am jack's sense of rejection
i suck my finger it stings
he puts his hand on the shoulder
and says a million stupid things

i hear he's backwards and inbred
i hear he's all kinds of things
i put my head on the table
and think a million stupid things

i just want answers to questions
and no-one knows what its worth
to see a jink in the armour
but i want more than this

i hold it in
i hate that grin
but it's all good
that smile is worn to be seen

when faced with all of my demons
i ran as fast as i could
for shelter in my own ignorance
like any normal person would

and you might label me indolent
if you didn't know me too well
you would say i have a problem
and i'd say go to hell

when i am free
it will be sunny forever
and i can say that i feel fine
sitting here doing nothing
that smile is worn to be seen

still i can't forget what you told me
i can't forget what you said
i can't stop seeing a target
painted on the back of his hand

why does he smile when he sees me?
and wave as he passes by?
who doesn't he know what he represents?
why is that?
i don't get it

Very Happy

I actually meant to type suck and not such.
I think you're right about the first line, that's what I always thought it was. Inject seemed to make a bit more sense.

I always thought it was "I abject sense of rejection", though I don't know if that would actually makes sense in context

I don't think the lyrics are exact, there's a couple of other niggling bits. But it's the nearest (read as "only") lyrics I've come across yet. Thanks again!

EDIT: After reading/listening again...I don't think there are any mistakes. These are spot on I reckon.

Hahaha...I still sing Freddy Krueger as:

"This is for my band, the ones who shared the struggle; I won them at a BAKE SALE!"

I agree "inject sense of rejection" sounds a bit more realistic, but it does sound like Jack.

Also, think it's "chink of armour" rather than "jink".

And, maybe "painted on the back of his head" rather than "hand"? Makes a little more sense and rhymes a bit better too.

Awesome work with the lyrics though Jimbo, thanks!

Ive always been confident it was "I am Jack's sense of rejection"

Anybody here seen Fight Club?

yep, that's why i thought it's "i am jack's sense of rejection"; also, it would fit better to the "he puts his hand on my shoulder".

it is "jack's sense of rejection"

"inject sense of rejection" doesn't make sense!

Correct me if I'm wrong, but I think there's a few more mistakes.

"Jink in the armour" is definately "Chink in the armour"
I believe the line "when I am free" should be "when I am Queen". I know that sounds mad, but it definately sounds more like that than 'free'.
And finally, I'm sure it is "painted on the back of his head" as apposed to "back of his hand", as to rhyme with 'i can't forget what she said'.

Not to be picky, just think its right if that helps anyone. No doubt I'll get completely shot down and shown up as the idiot that i am!!

I agree with "queen"...though sometimes I sing it as "King"

and "back of his head"...I concur!
