​Speed Trials

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

He's pleased to meet you underneath the horse in the cathedral with the glass stained black
Singing sweet high notes that echo back to destroy their master
May be a long time 'til you get the call-up but it's sure as fate and hard as your luck
No one'll know where you are

It's just a brief smile crossing your face
I'm running speed trials standing in place

When the socket's not a shock enough. You little child, what makes you think you're tough?
When all the people you think you're above, they all know what's the matter
You're such a pinball, yeah, you know it's true. There's always something you go back running to
To follow the path of no resistance

It's just a brief smile crossing your face
I'm running speed trials standing in place
It's just a brief smile crossing your face
I'm running speed trials all over the place
