He was an artist and a writer
and a poet and a friend
in a man's life he will take a fall
but how low he goes
it just depends

he's shooting dope
in the men's room
at the station
daily city train
have you ever seen an angel
well I know I have
see, they'll stay here for a while
and then they'll fly away

(Chorus)

Jackyl had a beer in his hand
last time I seen him
when he rolled the dice
you know, he never thought twice
never thought twice about being here

some grown up
and some grow old
but what about the kid
who never learned the rules
spent all these years
on this earth
when you look back
it's just a flicker of time

Jackyl was one of the one's
that you get perished, yeahhh
he was one of the one's
that was already saved
through all the evil and wreckage
he maintained a sense of himself

(Chorus)

some men are in prison
even though they walk the streets at night
other men who got the lockdown are
free as a bird in flight
...

(Chorus)
