Everything is exactly right

Everything is exactly right
When I walk around here drunk every night
With an open container from 7-11
In St. Ides Heaven

Been out haunting the neighborhood
And everybody can see I’m no good
When I’m walking out between parked cars
With my head full of stars

High on amphetamines
The moon is a light bulb breaking
It’ll go around with anyone
But it won’t come down for anyone

You think you know what brings me down
That I want those things you could never allow
You see me smile and you think it’s a frown turned upside-down

Cos everyone is a fucking pro
And they all got answers from trouble they’ve known
And they all gotta say what you should and shouldn’t do
Though they don’t have a clue

High on amphetamines
The moon is a light bulb breaking
It’ll go around with anyone
But it won’t come down for anyone
And I won’t come down for anyone

– Elliott Smith, St. Ides Heaven
