lyrics

Hacket found it rather heavy what his mother had said
Smack in the middle of dinnertime
"Lousy daddies hardly never sit deliberating it
So should there come a time"
Still that night aimed to talk the back leg off a donkey
And an underground lake gushing his pulmonary cavity
He woke with the weather-swinging the back door wildly
Bursting acetaldehyde

I should tell you, Hacket - born John Justice, John just as his father was
Justice from his mother's side
John became Hacket after quitting every sports team
It was a funny time
Still, Hacket was happy 'til a bug hatched inside him
Its chemical guano set to shorting his penchants
Add to that the booze and life's general break dance
Gets tough to harmonise

Oh Hacket
What the plan is
On this itty-bitty slippery planet
Could the only way out be the only way in?
Just like them?

Hacket had a sense of something sucking on his tethet
Snacking on his anchor line
The purpose of the mooring long-forgotten altogether
But still operating fine
One day it was winter and dusk came quickly
The airport security frisked him foreignly
Hacket aware that he had drifted considerably
No choice but take it in stride

Oh Hacket
What the plan is
On this itty-bitty slippery planet
Could the only way out be the only way in?
Just like them?

Hacket hadn't been home more than a litre or so
When all of his guests arrived
The meeting came to order and the matter at hand
All very civilised
There on the platform with both trains approaching
Thermometer bursting like a sausage of locusts
Hacket at the window with his wallet wide open
Fingering his final dime

Oh Hacket
What the plan is
On this itty-bitty slippery planet
Could the only way out be the only way in?
Just like them?
