JACKSON CAGE

Vocal snippet


...crossed swords on the killing floor
To settle back is to settle without knowing
The hard edge that you're settling for
There's always just one more day
It'll always be that way
Once, oh, you're back, baby stay

Way down, babe, in the Jackson Cage, in the Jackson Cage
Turning tricks and kings

Turn the corner, grab something to eat
Turn the corner and drive down her street
In a row of houses, she fade away
A scene in a new play
And girl, what's your sin
That you're living in?
You've been judged and handed life

Down in, baby, down in the Jackson Cage, down in the Jackson Cage, down in the Jackson Cage

[cut]

...on the killing floor
