SPEED TRIALS
Elliott Smith


He's pleased to meet you underneath the horse

In the cathedral with the glass stained black

Singing sweet high notes that echo back

To destroy their master


May be a long time til you get the call-up

But it's sure as fate and hard as your luck

No one'll know where you are

It's just a brief smile crossing your face


Running speed trials still standing in place


When the socket's not a shock enough

You little child what makes you think you're tough

When all the people you think you're above

They all know what's the matter


You're such a pinball yeah you know it's true

There's always something you come back running to

To follow the path of no resistance


It's just a brief smile crossing your face

Running speed trials standing in place

It's just a brief smile crossing your face

Running speed trials all over the place
