    Was in an Elliott Smith kind of mood so I drove over to the Figure 8 wall and took a few pictures..

    Fuck I miss that drunken bastard

    Something's happening, don't speak too soon
    I told the boss off and made my move
    Got no where to go

    Son of Sam, son of a shining path, the clouded mind
    Couple killer each and every time

    I'm not uncomfortable, feeling weird
    Long revered options disappear

    But I know what to do

    Son of Sam, son of a doctor's touch, a nurse's love
    Acting under orders from above

    King for a day

    Son of Sam, son of a shining path, the clouded mind
    Couple killer running out of time

    Shiva opens her arms now
    To make sure I don't get too far
    I may talk in my sleep tonight 'cause I don't know what I am
    I'm a little like you, more like son of Sam

    Big fan, usually listen to something by him every day, favorite songs would probably be St.Ides heaven, and Coming up roses, amongst alot of great songs...waiting for the documentary "Heaven adores you" to come out on dvd.

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

    Elliott Smith was a great talent and quite a role model for Artie. Anybody can stab himself once. Only a real man can do it twice.

    Huge fan, XO is flawless, and still in my top 5 favorite albums. He was a great and talented soul, his fingerpicking skills still can't be replicated the way he played them.
