PICTURES OF ME
Elliott Smith


start stop and start

stupid acting smart

flirting with the flicks

you say it's just for kicks

you'll be the victim of your own dirty tricks

you got yourself to tease and displease

doors swinging wide

you walked in to hide

looking at your feet

failure's complete

saw you and me on the coin-op tv

frozen in fear every time we appear

i'm not surprised and really, why should i be?

see nothing wrong

see nothing wrong

so sick and tired of all these pictures of me

completely wrong

totally wrong

go walking by

here come another guy

jailer who sells personal hells

who'd like to see me down on my fucking knees

everybody's dying just to get the disease

hey hey hey hey

i'm not surprised and really, why should i be?

see nothing wrong

see nothing wrong

so sick and tired of all these pictures of me

completely wrong

totally wrong

i'm not surprised and really, why should i be?

see nothing wrong

see nothing wrong

so sick and tired of all these pictures of me

oh everybody's dying just to get the disease

everybody's dying just to get the disease

everybody's dying just to get the disease
