about

Crooked Jacks Sherbrooke, Québec

Crooked Jacks are Canadian punk-rock warriors hailing from the musical purgatory of Sherbrooke, Quebec. From street punks to aging skaters caught up in an adult world they can’t figure out… anyone can relate to these guys.

Created in 2009 after many long nights, blistered fingers and various vices, Crooked Jacks mixes fast paced punk rock with catchy, almost country, guitar riffs.

Track Name: 5 or 6
It's been a long time coming
So you hit the ground running
Got a new position for you
With an old list of problems to get through

5 or 6 times a day
Somebody tells you what to do
5 or 6 times a day
You hear some things that are untrue

You try to wade through the shit
Your appointees add to it
Admitting mistakes
A noble gesture and a welcome change

5 or 6 times a day
Somebody tells you what to do
5 or 6 times a day
You hear some things that are untrue
5 or 6 times a day
Somebody tells you what to do
5 or 6 times a day
You hear some things that are untrue
Track Name: Touting More!
Day breaks on passed mistakes
Paving way for future wrongs
Cliff hanging seems like fun at first
In the end you're just hanging on
Locked in wait for a sign of fate
Do we need something to believe
A little more truth than old ways we knew
A better way, fresh air to breath

Touting more! Touting more!
Than a one way ticket through a slowly revolving door
Touting more! Touting more!
Than those dead dreams and false hopes we had before

We'll chug a couple more beers before we head outside
Where the cold and harsh winds blow
The road seems longer when it's so much less traveled
I guess that's what makes it so
The futures so bright, we're all carrying floodlights
Could this be the end?
Or a new beginning, through the tree's there's a forest
But that don't mean that it is

Touting more! Touting more!
Than a one way ticket through a slowly revolving door
Touting more! So much more!
Than those dead dreams and false hopes we had before
Track Name: St-Malo (Paul Song)
Drinking alone I see
Everything I used to be
I know that you’ll never see
Everything you meant to me

So I’ll go on on my own
Didn’t want to be alone
But this is where you left me
In complete misery

Remember the Saint Malo
The night I said I loved you
Hit me so low
You told me that you loved Paul
And that I meant nothing at all

So I’ll go on on my own
Didn’t want to be alone
But this is where you left me
In complete misery

I tried to move on with my life
From what you did to me
The scars too deep to hide
Drinking alone I see
Everything that I’ll never be

So I’ll go on on my own
Didn’t want to be alone
But this is where you left me
In complete misery
Track Name: Checking Out the Dead
It's 5 A.M in a coffee shop
I must be a sight to see
Trying to piece together whats left of my normality
These people drone like zombies, maybe its just me
All I know is instead of being in bed,
I'm checking out the dead

Checking out the dead

Whistling past the graveyard with Tom Waits in my head
Tombstones line these city streets the citizens lie within
Speed kills but slowly
I stagger around the bend
The early bird catches the worm they said
I'm checking out the dead

Checking out the dead

Things seem to be looking up the clouds are beginning to break
Damn good thing 'cause i wasn't sure how much more that I could take
Maybe it's the scenery maybe it's all just in my head
But I feel so fucking alive,
Checking out the dead

Checking out the dead
Track Name: Bad Decisions
When our eyes met it felt like she had never left at all
In the warm of her arms you’ll never hear my call
And I know that it’s a bad idea but I’ll kiss her once again
And I know that there’s pain waiting for you just around the bend

But I’ll go thru with it deal with it a lesson never learned
Here’s to Bad Decisions some pages just never turn

The time that we spent lasted a quater of my life
Avoided marriage and children my devotion wouldn't suffice
Now I'm drownding in this bottle
Sinking in this sand
The bad decision I never made will be the dicision that kills this man

And I know, too you it mean nothing at all
And I’ll think twice, before I answer your calls
And you know, to you it meant nothing at all
So don’t even bother, don't even bother to call
Cause I won’t fucken answer at all

The day that she left there’s a lot that I had meant to say
But I got drunk and fucked up that moment slipped away
But I know that she’ll be back again and I’ll get my second chance
To kill myself destroy myself over this lost romance

And I’ll go thru with it, deal with it
A lesson never learned
Here’s to bad decisions some dumb asses never learn

And I know, to you it mean nothing at all
And I’ll think twice, before I answer your calls
And you know, to you it meant nothing at all
So don’t even bother
Don't even bother to call
Cause I won’t fucken answer at all

I won’t answer at all I won’t answer at all
Fuckin cunt don’t call
Cause I won’t answer at all
