Strung Out Again

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album From a Basement on the Hill (2004).

You get what you see
I saw a rich fuck giving charity
Saw an evil emperor wearing my clothes
They're far from the best
But they might suit you better than the rest
Just looking in the mirror
Will make you a brave man

I know my place
I hate my face
I know how I begin, and how I'll end
Strung out again

Was a parliament of owls
Fly over a city of canals
Floating on the body, floating in the Dalles
You get what you see
But some things they just change invisibly
I don't know where I'm going
I don't even want to know

I know my place
I hate my face
I know how I begin, and how I'll end
Strung out again

Standing, smiling on some fantasy island
Looking at my lost reflection again
But a tide's coming in
And I'm strung out again
Strung out again
