a letter

Dear Elliot Smith,

I sure wish you hadn’ta gone and done that. I sure wish you had thought there might be another way.

A faceless fan of your art,

Jett ‘guhthatsturrble’ Superior

future butterfly gonna spend the day higher than high / you’ll be beautiful confusion / oh once I was you

I saw you caught between all the people out making the scene / and a bright ideal tomorrow / oh don’t go too far / stay who you are

everybody knows / everybody knows / everybody knows / you only live a day / but it’s brilliant anyway

I saw you in a perfect place / it’s gonna happen soon but not today / so go to sleep and make the change / I’ll meet you here tomorrow

independence day

independence day

independence day

    Cocaine cannot kill my pain

    Like a freight train through my vein

    Cocaine cannot kill my pain

    Whiskey got no hold on me

    Left them chains in tennessee

    Whiskey got no hold on me

    Don’t come knockin’ on my door

    Even that won’t work no more

    Don’t come knockin’ on my door

    Heroin is the only thing

    The only gift the darkness brings

    Heroin is the only thing

    Guess you’d best leave me alone

    At least until these blues have gone

    Guess you’d best leave me alone

    -Steve Earle

    The whole goddam thing is a shame…
