Ballad of Big Nothing

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album Either/Or (1997).

Throwing candy out to the crowd, dragging down the main
The helpless little thing with the dirty mouth who's always got something to say
You're sitting around at home now waiting for your brother to call
I saw him down in the alley having had enough of it all

Said "you can do what you want to whenever you want to"
"You can do what you want to, there's no one to stop you"

All spit and spite, you're up all night and down every day
A tired man with only hours to go just waiting to be taken away
Getting in to the back of a car for candy from some stranger
Watching the parade with pinpoint eyes full of smoldering anger

"You can do what you want to whenever you want to"
"You can do what you want to there's no one to stop you"
Now "you can do what you want to whenever you want to" (oh yeah). "Do what you want to whenever you want to" (oh yeah)
"Do what you want to whenever you want to" though it doesn't mean a thing
Big nothing
