unhinged alt-indie anthem in praise of an epileptic playground loser who 'danced like a scorpion in a ring of fire'


In the playground, boy so skinny
Says his mother slept with Elvis
And she hasn't been the same
Since the poor man died
In his satchel lives an angel
By the name of Saint Theresa
And a tangerine smile that he wears outside
He never laughs, he never cries

Jackson is a loser
Jackson is a tool
Jackson is a jackass
Like me and you

In the backroom he was everybody's nobody
Farrah slacks, crazy shoes,
Smelled of sandwiches on Tuesdays
And danced like a scorpion in a ring of fire
Tragic mix of fat lips, orange whips, epileptic fits
In the bible it says that God is the right thing
Man is the bad thing
Jesus Christ the go between
Do unto others as you'd do to yourself
But the truth is, school's a hard place to lose
And Jackson knew he was doomed
But he never flinched
He never lied

Jackson is a loser
Jackson is a tool
Jackson is a jackass, like me and you
