“A Distorted Reality is Now a Necessity to be Free” by Elliott Smith

You disappoint me, you people raking in on the world. The devil’s script sells you the heart of a blackbird.

I’m floating in a black balloon
O.D. on Easter afternoon
My mama told me “Baby stay clean
There’s no in-between”

And all you ladies and you gentlemen
Between is all you’ve ever seen or been
Fit poorly and arrange the sight
Doll it up in virgin white

You disappoint me, you people raking in on the world.
The devil’s script sells you the heart of a blackbird.

Shine on me baby, because it’s raining in my heart

Sun’s rising on a chopping glare
Rain dropping acid bought up in the air

It’s so disappointing
First I put it all down to luck
God knows why my country don’t give a fuck, fuck.

Shine on me baby, because it’s raining in my heart
Shine on me baby, because it’s raining in my heart

An interview with Elliott Smith: “If everybody really acted like how they felt all the time, it would be total madness.”

I'm routinely overestimated.
