Half Jack
[for my father]

half underwater / i’m half my mother’s daughter / a fraction’s left up to dispute / the whole collection / half off the price they’re asking / in the halfway house of ill repute / half accidental / half pain / full instrumental / i have a lot to think about / you think / they’re joking? / you have to go provoke him… / i guess it’s high time you found out / it’s half biology and half corrective surgery gone wrong / you’ll notice something funny if you hang around here for too / long ago in some black hole before they had / these pills to take it back / i’m half jill / and half jack / two halves are equal / a cross / between two evils / it’s not an enviable lot / but if you listen / you’ll learn to hear the / difference / between the halves and the half nots / and when i let him in i feel my / stitches getting sicker / i try to wash him out but like she said: the blood is thicker / i see my mother in my face / but only when i travel / i run as fast as i can run / but jack comes tumbling after…/ and when i’m brave enough and find a clever way to kick him out / and i’m so high not even you and all your love could bring me down / on 83rd he never found the magic words to change this fact: / i’m half jill / and half jack / i’m halfway home now / half hoping / for a showdown / cause i’m not big enough to/ house this crowd / it might destroy me / but i’d sacrifice my body / if it meant i’d get the jack part out
