Son of Sam
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Something's happening
Don't speak too soon
I told the boss off, made my move
Got nowhere to go
Son of Sam
Son of the shining path, the clouded mind
The couple killer each and every time

I'm not uncomfortable feeling weird
Lonely leered, options disappeared
But I know what to do
Son of Sam, son of a doctor's touch, a nurse's love
Acting under orders from above

King for a day

Son of Sam
Son of the shining path, the clouded mind
The couple killer running out of time
Shiva opens her arms now
To make sure I don't get too far
I may talk in my sleep tonight
Cos I don't know what I am
I'm a little like you
More like Son of Sam

After... idk 12+years of addiction... And yes spent the 1st 3 years and 4 months in prison benefits twice and used like immediately...
I recently answered a lot of therapy if found out I was not like I was more like abused... And clearly I didn't know my son who is super special he has down syndrome and that is a blessing although I mean people are always in the talk when you know ideal what they're talking about and... I'm not gonna go on about that I'm not gonna go on about that but like dude I knew if I had a baby boy I would name him Elliot. I knew I would and it's not just that's really weird because my government legal name my parents gave me...
[KEEP IN MIND .. I was born in Soviet Germany my dad did contract work for like Linux or something for the US military and I don't know how he met my mom but she wasn't mormon like you know Utah mormon.. I do not think you know but I think she didn't know Janine me.. ALEESHA?? ... Yeah that was bad I mean mobile in this way I've had job interviews set up and when they see me in person they're pretty disappointed because they weren't going to get that little pains out of her hiring color people.
Weird cause Elliot Smith goes by another name too but I didn't give myself a name or when I was 12 or 13 I what were 13 night got named Sadie and I have never ever been.. I don't I just felt most so much more normal and I can't count how many times people have been me told me like my government name is just really weird.
It was a really big honor of course to name him Elliott. His name is Elliott Schwab [actually same intial]

He's in the back of the car right now and for the most part I listened to run the jewels in the atmosphere in ASAP rock by the chorus I will always go back and listen this and he loves it... He does get really confused when I'm saying:Alexa play Elliott smith".
But I don't know he was yes I continue to use I felt less lonely but this is years after my addiction and I knew that was the name I was definitely going to go as for a boy not a is it only absolutely timeless and I just really classy yet chill regardless of it's the 1430 2020 by Matt zone but it meant so much to me and I also remember I listened to him a lot when I was getting in the process of getting summer sober so I wouldn't not using so many options for drinking a lot.. I mean I had a worn out for a felony that carried 99 Max and a minimum of 5 live so I live a little hope and we'll have a little bit of a broad spectrum.

And I don't know I just love to see that big hi'd like to see that because I kind of I'm not a gatekeeper but I do think it's kind of cool because his music is literally layered as in he is a one man band... And so many people can get maybe 2 meetings possibly tpossibly 2 add 1 song 1 of them obviously being there interpretation one being the literal but the song I mean I own get hold of this photography which later in August is really boring after wet 10 years.... I mean and there's just different times they relate to others.

I still absolutely love love all my routines is settled down cover from Hank Williams... He absolutely just so incredibly personable

Got nowhere to go
Son of Sam
Son of the shining path, the clouded mind

I'm not uncomfortable feeling weird
Lonely leered, options disappeared
But I know what to do
Son of Sam, son of a doctor's touch, a nurse's love
Acting under orders from above

Something's happening, don't speak too soon
I told the boss off and made my move
Got nowhere to go
Son of Sam, son of the shining path, the clouded mind
The couple killer each and every time
I'm not uncomfortable, feeling weird
Lonely leered, options disappeared
But I know what to do
Son of Sam, son of a doctor's touch, a nurse's love
Acting under orders from above
King for a day
Son of Sam, son of the shining path, the clouded mind
The couple killer running out of time
Shiva opens her arms now to make sure I don't get too far
I may talk in my sleep tonight 'cos I don't know what I am
I'm a little like you
More like Son of Sam

Getting into Elliott's music in the pandemic is one of the best decisions I've ever made.

Cool dolphin

@SpacemanXC I know what you mean, but I listen to sad music because it’s something that I can really feel and relate to

SpacemanXC

@Sebastian Schultz Sad music makes me feel sad. And I'm sick of sadness.

Still love Elliot's guitar work though.

Sebastian Schultz

Possibly the most underrated musician ever.

It's True!

christopher theiss

He would have made the Beatles blush.

Rok Prijatelj

I think, that he had enought fame and wealth for him. He was not satisfied whis his inside being and hid drog addiction. He was genius, period!
