about

Jack sits in his small room, drunk but now he is drinking alone. Divorced with no hope of seeing his kids he is in the depths of despair and feel this loneliness more than ever.

lyrics

Foreman Jack

Sitting alone, in this shitty old room,
I’m listening to some, sad ass old tune.
That’s playing on my radio, down by my bed.
And I’m thinking of things, better left unsaid.
You took my life, with my kids and my home,
And reduced me to this, a dog with no bone.
I’d give you a call, ah, just to tell you all this,
but I ain’t got no phone and you’d just take the piss.

I worked so very hard, to make us a life,
Yes, it took me away for weeks, and that’s why we strive.
I thought we had all the cards … so perfect us.
Then you asked me to leave, it was a busted flush.

I used to be called dad, a purpose I now lack.
Friends drifted away, they ain’t coming back.
So I work every day, a robot on track …
And my only designation, is Foreman Jack.

I used to be called dad, a purpose I now lack.
Friends drifted away, they ain’t coming back.
I work every day, a robot on track …
my only designation, is Foreman Jack.
