HOW TO TAKE A FALL
Elliott Smith


it's when we're cover to cover
it's an endless fuse
chain-led peter never seems to get any smarter

i'm always marking pages so
that i don't get confused
end up in a fight i never had any part of

listen naive plaything
coming over, clueless
every time you call
an accident just waiting to happen
still hasn't failed out
how to take a fall

make me a present
make it something sweet
small enough to go unnoticed and big enough to complete

what does a massive pass that keeps
blocking up my street
looking for a new contender to disassemble

listen naive plaything
coming over, clueless
every time you call
an accident just waiting to happen
still hasn't failed out
how to take a fall
how to take a fall
how to take a fall
