​Even Out

This song is by Lazy Habits.

Once upon a time there was a boy named Jack
Who was always looking forwards and never looking back
The careers officers at our school always used to
Say that Jack was the one who had the brighter future
But now Jack's dead with a crack in his head
Slumped in an alley like a sackful of lead
It was the crack they said but, I know better
'Cause I knew Jill was trouble from the moment that I met her

She was not just a pretty face, had a hat rack
Knew that dreams disappear like pussy out the cat flap
Round her little finger she had Jack wrapped
Till that lab rat thought that he was in the rat pack
But when cat meats rat, only one winner
Law dictates that one becomes dinner
True that at night he could ignite a light in her
But could he make a grand on the streets like Mike Skinner

So,
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run

Looking back on the course of events
I see what Jack had in heart he was lacking in sense
Jill was into fashion and she studied in Kent
She had enough money for shoes but never for rent
She needed money quick and Jack knew a fast way
Started selling class A's to all Jill's classmates
Led him half way down a dark pathway
I said 'I don't care if you're making a killing Jack that's a daft way'

Try to make a living, if you ask me your arse may
End up in prison where it's ghastly
And when you're sick and feeling queasy and your arse aches
Picking up the pieces won't be easy like when glass breaks
Him 'Me and Jill moving in to the house on the hill in Ill
And she's only willing if I'm continuing dealing
Besides I'm making a killing, moving a kilo
It'll all be fine and dandy' 'Jack it's not even the Beano'

So,
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run

Truth is me and Jill we go way back
Started in a bar and grill, finished in a haystack
And when it ended guess the wounds never mended
She went from 'please please please' to the big payback
I guess I always figured it came down to the day that
Her dad went for a cigarette and never came back
Her mum never wrote a note, put on an overcoat
Took an overdose, lay down on a train track

Shame that, but that's how life goes
One minute you're an innocent the next you're a pyscho
The night Jack died I saw Jill in her nightclothes
Blood dripping from her right hand holding a pipe hose
Looking round at the state of the slaughter
I said 'Jill you'd better get a pail of the water'
The truth is I never really liked Jack
And now I've got your flat hat, crack and your cat

So,
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down does it ever even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down it will never even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run

Deep down it will never even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down it will never even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down it will never even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
Deep down it will never even out, does it even even out, even out in the long run
