Jack Skellington



Jack is a skeleton, tall and thin
He bathes in the deceitful light of sin
He wallows in the hallow darkness
And tells you what you want to hear

He tells you things to gain your trust
And comes off as quite more than lust
Then uses his ghostlike charms
To take your heart away

So heed the warning you've been told
His soul is black, his heart cold
Jack lied to me and he'll trick you too
Yes, that's exactly what he'll do

The Pumpkin King knows his schemes
He's simply not what he seems
So when you feel like taking sides
Remember I've gone through it all
And cried.
