More Jack than God

Canzone dedicata a Kelly Yeomans, una bambina inglese che nel 1997 si suicidò a soli 13 anni dopo aver subìto feroci atti di bullismo da parte dei suoi compagni di scuola.



Kelly era sovrappeso e alcuni ragazzini l’avevano presa di mira, arrivando ad attaccare a più riprese l’abitazione della bambina, bombardandola con lanci di cibo e di fango. I genitori di Kelly avevano denunciato più volte alle autorità scolastiche i soprusi inferti alla figlia, ma i responsabili non fecero mai nulla.
Where is the way out of the night
When the dark wind's cryin'
Where is the way out of the night
Where you're lying?

Where is the time to heal the loss
When the cruel tongues cross
And the heart can't sail
Where is the way to keep it in
When the sick words win
And you grip the rails

Where is the place to lay your head
When the streets run red
And your heart's in jail
Where is the place to lay your head
When the pressure's tight
And the glare's so bright
Where is the way out of the night?

You hit the black, where you just can't hack it no more
The pain caught up and slammed you down to the floor
How can you fight with the dying of your dreams
Kelly's blue, gone with the wind
Never green

Where is the way out of the night
When the dark wind's cryin'
Where is the way out of the night
Where you're lying?

Where was the hand to soothe your brow
When the need was now
Straying off the line
Where was the friend you could not find
Tore your open mind
Wrote your name in grime
Where was the way out of the maze
When the days got crazed
All the games they played
Where is the way out of the night?

You hit the black, where you just can't hack it no more
The pain caught up and slammed you down to the floor
How can you fight with the dying of your dreams
Kelly's blue, gone with the wind
Never green
Lying, crying
