Elliott Smith

Elliott Smith - King's Crossing

The King's crossing was the main attraction

Dominoes falling in a chain reaction

The scraping subject ruled by fear told me

Whiskey works better than beer

The judge is on vinyl, decisions aren't final

And nobody gets a reprieve

And every wave is tidal

If you hang around you're going to get wet

I can't prepare for death any more than I already have

All you can do now is watch the shelves

The game looks easy, that's why it sells

Frustrated fireworks inside your head

Are going to stand and deliver dark instead

The method acting that pays my bills

Keeps the fat man feeding in Beverly Hills

I got a heavy metal mouth, it hurls obscenity

And I get my check from the trash treasury

Because I took my own insides out

It don't matter cause I have no sex life

And all I wanna do now is inject my ex-wife

I've seen the movie

And I know what happens

It's Christmas time

And the needle's on the tree

A skinny Santa is bringing something to me

His voice is overwhelming

But his speech is slurred

And I only understand every other word

Open your parachute and grab your gun

Float down like an omen, a setting sun

Read the part and return at five

It's a hell of a role if you can keep it alive

But I don't care if I fuck up

I'm going on a date

With a rich white lady

Ain't life great?

Gi'me one good reason not to do it

(Because I love you)

So do it.

This is the place where time reverses

And dead men talk to all the pretty nurses

Instruments shine on a silver tray

Don't let me get carried away

Don't let me get carried away

Don't let me be carried away
