Jackson C. Frank - Spectre Lyrics




Where the street becomes a wall
The spectre fell against it
Without a cry or a wail
Here in the darkness
His black and green will ram
There's no more lack of conscience
That isn't due a plan
Oh, the spectre

The spectre had no food
The spectre was in guilt
He had no light, he had no light
His shadow overspilled
And 'cross the rugged ranges
Of kerbs and broken minds
The spectre wasn't finished
The spectre was denied
Oh, the spectre

Behold the shining silver
Of a coin held in your hand
The spectre isn't greedy
He recalls he is a man
While all through the midnight
Oppression only cries
See, oh see the spectre
Caught for the compromise
Oh, the spectre
Oh, the spectre
Where the street becomes a wall
The spectre fell against it
Without a cry or a wail

    Where the street becomes a wall
    The spectre fell against it
    Without a cry or a wail
    Here in the darkness
    His black and green will ram
    There's no more lack of conscience
    That isn't due a plan
    Oh, the spectre
    The spectre had no food
    The spectre wasn't guilt
    He had no light, he had no light
    His shadow overspilled
    And 'cross the rugged ranges
    Of kerbs and broken minds
    The spectre wasn't finished
    The spectre was the night
    Oh, the spectre
    Behold the shining silver
    Of a coin held in your hand
    The spectre isn't greedy
    He recalls he is a man
    While all through the midnight
    Oppression only cries
    See, oh see the spectre
    Caught for the compromise
    Oh, the spectre
    Oh, the spectre
    Where the street becomes a wall
    The spectre fell against it
    Without a cry or a wail.

    How I wish! How I wish Johnny Cash would've done a cover of this!

    Thanks Gabe.

    Through his life of pain and torture, he inspired others, who in turn gave beauty and joy to the world many years later. Well done.

    This song is from the 90's, when Frank was very ill and depressed.

    This sounds like Frank to me. His voice is pretty croaky so I think this might have been recorded pretty late in his life when his health was pretty awful, so that is probably why it sounds a bit different to the usual.

    I am absolutely positive.. I have only one collection of his music and this was definitely on it.

  9. Carlos Eduardo

    Jackson is the real Spectre.

    No, Townes didn't cover this song. The name only appears under the video because it is the way I tagged most of my videos. If anyone looks up Townes Van Zandt- Highway Kind, a whole bunch of my video uploads will show up in the search. Check out my channel for a lot of great music.
