about

Jack's Smirking Revenge Denver, Colorado

JSR started in a bedroom in 2008 as an outlet for Alex to complain about his 19 year old problems, like heartbreak and capitalism. It morphed into a full electric band around 2012 and has continued to play dive bars and sweaty garages, except now we sing about late 20-something problems, like back problems and the crippling terror of existence. Just kidding,they're still heartbreak and capitalism ... more

Track Name: G-G-G-Ghosts!
It's fucking absurd and kind of pathetic
I'm being haunted by spectres and ghosts, poltergeists and apparitions
they won't leave me alone
oh that past won't let me go

these days I don't feel alone but the past follows me everywhere I go
I broke the promises I made, now ink is being put to page
and you know what I'm going through
the ghosts seem to be following you too
I've been ignoring them the best I could do
they had other plan and now they're laughing

they won't leave me alone
oh that past won't let me go

her eyes cut through me like a knife when I realized I'd never know what its like to like next to her at night
and in my head the ghosts are laughing
oh they're laughing

they won't leave me alone
that past won't let me go.
Track Name: Facepalm
I know you must be deep in their pockets,
but still I must ask:
are you really that stupid or just plain oblivious?
call it indoctrination, call it desperate payoff
but I'm fighting off the urge to destroy

holding on to your shrinking credibility
spitting out lies so ridiculous, who'd you expect to believe then
when you can't keep a straight face
I'm fighting back the urge to destroy this place
trying to force us the same pathetic line
that you've been feeding us for generations
I may be lucky and privileged, but I'm not deluded
to think we must be lazy, stupid, or jealous to question
wealth distribution
holding on to your shrinking credibility
spitting out lies so ridiculous, who'd you expect to believe then
when you can't keep a straight face
I'm fighting back the urge to destroy this place
Track Name: Tim Browne Bible Stories
willful ignorance coupled with an inflated sense of victimization
desperately trying to prevent a fall into irrelevance
most have found an escape from your pearly prison gates
but too many cling to their favorites opiates

your fairy tale is fading, but your power grabs don't seem to be abating

childish solace and comfort found in a belief in an afterlife
don't outweigh the millions of dead kill in the name of your god
or outweigh the strife
caused by excuses that prevent a better world from being built
guess the only way that'll happen is on your dust and ashes

your fairy tale is fading, but your power grabs don't seem to be abating
and your faith has become a crutch
and you use it to bludgeon those who've relearned how to walk
