Tom Waits – Hell Broke Luce

The video for Hell Broke Luce is bonkers/brilliant.

“Luce” is a reference to Jeff Lucey, a US soldier who took his own life after returning from a tour in Iraq, hanging himself with a hose in his parents’ basement. “What was his name? Jeff!” It’s a heavy, heavy song.

  1. The more one listens to this (Hell Broke Luce) the more powerful it becomes. You begin to feel what J. Lucey went through, which was hell. It’s a real shame them “stapled generals” don’t see the war field in person, as it’s going on. I’d bet Tom Waits would have a little something to say.
