about

The lyrics Andy Ewen wrote for this song are a memorial to a young man who used to come see Andy play with his band, Honor Among Thieves. "Jack" was a bit confused, always searching for meaning in his life, and he ultimately found it in a very dark place.

lyrics

Nameless Jack walking down the street
Nameless Jack walking down the street
Nameless Jack walking down the street
And the blackbirds circle at a height of 20 feet

Faster and faster around and around
Faster and faster round and around
Faster and faster round and around
And Nameless Jack is lifted from the ground

In this fine feathered circle Jack is elated
In this fine feathered circle Jack is elated
In this fine feathered circle jerk Jack is elated
He finally finds himself the hub of the wheel to which he's mated

Around and around the wheel spins out of sight
Around and around the wheel spins out of sight
Around and around the wheel spins out of sight
And Nameless Jack gently disappears into that good night
