Jack The Knife

This song is by The Electric Hellfire Club and appears on the album Kiss The Goat (1995).

You will find me standing in the shadows
Dressed to the nines
With the image of your murder
Burning in my eyes
I'm the handsome stranger
Who took you for a ride
I offered you some candy
On the day you died

I'm Jack! and you're my victim
I was born to take your life
You were born to suffer
At the hands of Jack the Knife

I'm on your favorite TV show
I'm everywhere you look
I'm a star of stage and screen
And the latest murder books
I'm the Devil's paintbrush
And he likes the color red
You're my latest masterpiece
Dismembered on your bed

I'm the beast in black, I'm Saucy Jack
From Never-Never Land
I'm the heavy metal boogie man
Catch me if you can!
Ripper, slasher, night stalker
Each of them a tasty slice
But future generations will call me
Jack the Knife!

Inverted pentagrams
In lipstick on your wall
The symbol of my savior
I carved into my palm
I use a knife to make my mark
Name and number of the beast
In the flesh of some young lovely
Recently deceased!

I'm the perfect gentleman
Who's trust you all betrayed
Satan's little helper
With a razor blade

A pint of demon rum
And some little yellow pills
...Help make my thinking clearer
...Help me decide if I should kill

I'll show you a thing or two
With surgical precision
And as the blood begins to flow
I'll know I made the right decision
The final incision
