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 the 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
