©1998 Parker/Max, BMI If you could see like jaded jean 
You wouldn't have a need for dreams 
Like jaded jean in her jaded scene 
She's planting seeds 
A garden queen You can find her at home almost every night 
Writing letters on sheets of white 
Or jade green 
From her garden stream
 She's consciously falling asleep
 Jaded jean Would you believe 
Her father's at home 
Watching the clocks
 While mommy's alone 
And would you believe 
In all of these things 
If you could see 
Like jaded jean If you could work out everything 
And fill the holes the ashes bring 
You wouldn't have a need for dreams 
Like jaded jean 
In her jaded scene The stories come before she falls asleep 
She draws the people she wants to meet
 They live in houses filled with schemes
 The sun rises up 
And floods her streams Would you believe
 Her father's at home 
Watching the clocks
 While mommy's alone 
And would you believe
 In all of these things 
If you could see 
Like jaded jean If you could be like jaded jean 
You wouldn't have a need for dream

about

The original mix of Jaded Jean appears on Tadpoles, Smoke Ghost, album, released in 1998 on Bakery Records. Smoke Ghost was produced by Kramer (Shimmy Disc / Bongwater) at his Noise New Jersey studio and received critical acclaim upon its release.

In 2012, "For Lee Jackson In Space" was released as a digital download only album exclusively on Bandcamp. Proceeds from this album, which is still available, are donated to the ALS Association, Texas Chapter in the name of Lee Jackson, a Texan writer and cultural enthusiast, famed for his co-creedation of the noted Broken Face fanzine with Swedish writer Mats Gustafsson.

Lee interviewed the Tadpoles for the Broken Face in 1999 and reviewed a number of Tadpoles albums, always enthusiastically. For the 20th anniversary of Smoke Ghost, we are releasing as a digital single "Jaded Jean (For Lee Jackson In Space Mix)" in honor of both the Smoke Ghost album and of Lee. We encourage you to seek out the full 94 song collection "For Lee Jackson In Space" on Bandcamp!
