They dragged Jack and his shadow from the hole
And the bulb that burned above him
Did shine both day and night
And his shadow learned to love his
Little darks and greater lightAnd the sun, it shined
And the sun, it shined
And the sun, it shined
A little stronger, a little strongerJack wept and kissed his shadow "Goodbye"
Spat from their dirty dungeons
Into a truly different din
Shat from their institutions
Into a fully different dinAnd his shadow soon became a wife
And children plagued his latter life
Until one night he took a skinning knife
And stole into the town
And tracked, tracked his shadow downSaid the shadow to Jack Henry, "What's wrong?"
Jack said, "A home is not a hole"
"And shadow, you're just a gallow that I hang my body from"
"O shadow, you're a shackle from which my time is never done"Then he peeled his shadow off in strips
He peeled his shadow off in strips
Then kneeled his shadow on some steps
And cried, "What have I done?"And the sun, it shined
And the sun, it shined
I say "Love is blind"
And is it any wonder?
Is it any wonder?Jack and his damned shadow is gone
And though each one of us all, want to duly mourn
Yes, and though each one of us, all want to duly mourn'Tis done in brighter corners now
'Tis done in brighter corners now
'Tis done in brighter corners now
Now that Jack's black shadow's goneAnd the sun, it shined
I say sun, it shined
And the sun it shined
A little strongerIs it any wonder?
Is it any wonder?
That love is blind
I say love is blind
I say love is blindA little stronger
A little stronger'Tis done in brighter corners now
Tis done in brighter corners now
'Tis done in brighter corners now
Now that Jack's black shadow's gone
Yeah, Jack's black shadow's goneAnd I swear, love is blind
Yeah, love is blind
Yeah, love is blind
[Incomprehensible]Oh, the sun, it shined
The sun, it shined
The sun, it shined
But when I can't rememberBut 'tis done in brighter corners now
Tis done in brighter corners now
'Tis done in brighter corners now
Tis done in brighter corners now
'Tis done in brighter corners nowNow that Jack's black shadow's gone
Now that Jack's black shadow's gone
Now that Jack's black shadow's gone
Now that Jack's black shadow's gone
Now that Jack's black shadow's gone
Это интересно:Об альбоме Your Funeral... My Trial:

Your Funeral... My Trial — четвёртый студийный альбом группы Nick Cave & The Bad Seeds, изданный в 1986 году.

Изначально Your Funeral… My Trial вышел как двойной мини-альбом: «ваши похороны» и «мой суд» соответственно, последовавшая за ними ранняя CD версия включала девятую песню «Scum» и изменённый трек-лист. В период записи Ник Кейв был погружён в глубокую героиновую зависимость, что не могло не отразится на альбоме: настроение Your Funeral… My Trial полно грусти и отчаяния.

В 2009 году альбом был переиздан, новое издание содержит наиболее корректный трек-лист: порядок восьми песен сохранён в соответствии с виниловым мини-альбомом, а «Scum» характеризуется как бонусная песня с раннего CD издания.

А как ты думаешь, о чем песня "Jack's Shadow" ?
