Stupidity Tries

This song is by Elliott Smith and appears on the album Figure 8 (2000).

Got a foot in the door; God knows what for
And he'll cut me down to size. Stupidity tries

Everything here is free. Everything but you and me
This painting never dries. Stupidity tries

Savannah shoulder raised a cheer, coloring the sky with ash
Because they found some privateer to sail across a sea of trash

The enemy is within; don't confuse me with him
The truth is otherwise. Stupidity tries

And so I go from floor to floor looking for a port of call
Another drunk conquistador conquering the governor's ball

I couldn't think of a thing that I hope tomorrow brings
Oh, what a surprise. Stupidity tries

Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
Ooh
