A DISTORTED REALITY IS NOW A NECESSITY
Elliott Smith


I'm floating in a black balloon
O.Ded on Easter afternoon
my mama told me baby stay clean theres no in between

but all you ladies and you gentlemen
betweens all you've ever seen or been
a fit polly and a razor side dollared up in virgin white

you disappoint me you people raking in on the world
the devil's script sells you the heart of a black bird
shine on me baby cause its raining in my heart

Sun's rising on a choppy glare
rain's dropping acid bottled in the air
A distorted reality is now a necessity to be free

so disappointing first I'll put it all down to luck
God knows why my country don't give a fuck, fuck
shine on me baby cause its raining in my heart
shine on me baby cause its raining in my heart
