Lyric "A Distorted Reality Is Now A Necessity To Be Free"

I'm floating in a black balloon
O.D. on Easter afternoon
My mama told me "Baby stay clean
There's no in-between"
And all you ladies and you gentlemen
Between is all you've ever seen or been
Fit poorly and arrange the sight
Doll it up in virgin white
You disappoint me, you people raking in on the world
The devil's script sells you the heart of a blackbird

Shine on me baby, because it's raining in my heart

Sun's rising on a chopping glare
Rain dropping acid bought up in the air
A distorted reality is now a necessity to be free
It's so disappointing
First I put it all down to luck
God knows why my country don't give a fuck
Fuck
Shine on me baby, because it's raining in my heart
Shine on me baby, because it's raining in my heart

Elliott Smith

Steven Paul Smith (August 6, 1969 – October 21, 2003) was an American singer, songwriter, and musician. Smith was born in Omaha, Nebraska, raised primarily in Texas, and lived for much of his life in Portland, Oregon, where he first gained popularity. Smith's primary instrument was the guitar, though he was also proficient with piano, clarinet, bass guitar, drums, and harmonica. Smith had a distinctive vocal style, characterized by his "whispery, spiderweb-thin delivery", and used multi-tracking to create vocal layers, textures, and harmonies.
