    This song rivals Piano Man, but never got exposure! 2 Epic tracks on 1 album!

    Billy once said this song was inspired by bored middle class teenagers on Long Island, and the drug dealer (the titular Captain Jack) who would supply them with what they needed to be less bored.

    I'm certain that this man is the greatest songwriter of all time.

    YESS. Genius, indeed. I was going to quote a line, but I think I'd end up quoting the whole damn song. 6'19", however, is just brilliant.
  • Avatar for sco703
    There's a line in this song that really hits home for my family. I never knew the line until just now while listening to the song. Extremely disturbed.

    You go, Billy :-) Had this in my head of your best
  • Avatar for Distron
    Just a little push, you'll be smiling. Not an anti drug song but a song based on life's experiences.....IMHO
  • Avatar for maine6622
    I think it has to do with capt jack having a drug problem, not an anti drug thing, great song anyway
  • Avatar for SirhanDuran
    this has a terribly written description

    the best
  • Avatar for a_jeda
    jepp !
  • Avatar for Anondurl
    Oh, one last thing. I forgot to mention. This may sound like a pro drug song but Billy himself wrote it as an anti drug song. There are also some speculations as to the name. Some theories include the fact that just outside his house in oyster bay there was a drug dealer called Captain Jack. Also I believe captain jack is a slang term for some sort of drug so that might be it. Thanks to anyone patient enough to read all this
  • Avatar for Anondurl
    It's a great song! I love it. One question though, In the video here it shows some glass semi circles around the players. Is that for security? If so "What is the world coming to when a singer isn't safe?" And if there for sound "I really don't care that much, Billy could move around and make the song cooler if he wasn't boxed in"
  • Avatar for siggi5665

  • Avatar for DMac19
    oh yea baby... chemical dependency all the way! why learn and do something productive when you can just zone out! but still a great song... it is more of an awareness song anyway.
