A LIVING WILL
Elliott Smith


time to kill wrote a living will and gave it to the man in the moon
but i'm gonna get well soon this happy face is watching me die
elevate me to another world all that i can do on my own
is leave well enough alone
leave well enough alone
leave well enough alone
a circumstance dropped by uninvited and demand to be fed
but i've already gone to bed there's nothing you can see from inside
my spirit arose and put on my clothes and helped me disconnecting the phone
to leave well enough alone
leave well enough alone
leave well enough alone

time was i was a wire then a mole in a cake
first its all the reaction, now its all the rage

waking up by the stations' stop and reality's invading my brain
the cops gonna search the train they'll take away whatever they find
but i don't have the thoughts you want,just a memory of love I was shown
a vision that turns to stone
leave well enough alone
leave well enough alone
