Coast To Coast
Elliott Smith Lyrics


Last stop for a resolution
End of the line, is it confusion?
So go. Go see what's there for you
Nothing new, nothing new for you to use
I've got no new act to amuse you
I've got no desire to use you, you know
But anything that I could do, would never be good enough for you
If you can't help it then just leave it alone
Leave it alone, yeah, just forget it
It's really easy
I believe I'll forget it too
Still you're keepin' me around
Til I finally drag us both down
Streaming feathers out your hat
Yes I believe that's where it's at
You belong tagging along
And I belong in your zoo
So I wait for confirmation
That you're never gonna use your starting gun
Unless its me it sounds like being here just wasn't that much fun
Anything that I could do
Would never be good enough for you
If you can't help it then just leave it alone
Leave me alone, yeah, just forget it
It's really easy
I'll just forget it too
Coast to coast, coast to coast
I'll do what I can so you can be what you do
Coast to coast, coast to coast
I'll do everything I can so you can be what you do
Coast to coast, coast to coast
Circuit rider comes every fifth Sunday
Oh my Lord, I fell asleep one day
Anything that I could do
Is there anything that I could do
That someone doesn't do for you
That someone didn't do for you
That I haven't already done for you

@LateNightRewrites ...near as I can recall; Elliott's stepdad Charlie was sexually abusing Elliott. I got the impression it went on for years, during his elementary school age (if too early, someone pls correct me,) and up through early teens. Elliott finally got enough courage to confront the abuse. However, when he told his family (mother) about it, she and the rest of the family didn't believe him, and took Charlie's side. Further, Elliott was punished in some manner for causing trouble for family, being disruptive, or something along those lines.

Bullet points being Charlie sexually (+) abused Elliott at a young age. E wasnt believed when he came forward to family. Further, his supposed protectors gave him a hard time and skepticism. He subsequently bounced out, leaving to live with dad in Portland by 14 or 15, escaping texas ostensibly so he could escape Charlie.

(E had a tat of the Lonestar state on his arm; he said it was a reminder of a place he really didnt want to ever return to. Phrased it like "theres a lot of bad stuff I dont want to talk about, but its stuff that shouldnt be forgotten, a lot of good reasons to never return..." - note, im paraphrasing at best, and by no means is that an accurate quote at the end. But the points mentioned are real points and explanations raised by Elliott. ) RIP buddy. You were too much for this world to handle, and so bright that its people chose to dim your light rather than brighten it's own.

To take the path of no resistance....And you fuckers broke him. Add to THAT, the questionable manner in which he died (incredibly painful and difficult manner of suicide; self impalement,) showing no signs of hesitation marks, which is uncommon in those suicide methods. Also had supposed, possible defensive wounds on forearms. His tox panel came back clear of narcotics or illicit drugs, and had normal levels of prescribed anti depressant and mood stabilizers he was on.

He was alone in his home with his (ex~ish) girlfriend, Jennifer Chiba. She CLAIMED they had been arguing, so she locked herself in the bathroom. At which point she heard screaming, came out to see Elliott with kitchen knife sticking out of his chest.

She goes on to claim that she then pulled the knife out (BIG no-no. Would also explain any of her prints on the handle....) and called 911. Only a small post it was found for a suicide note, and there was controversy that his name had been misspelled onthe note, but I believe that was cleared up as the medical examiner writing it incorrectly in the file, but that it was correct on the original doc... put all that together and the case was never closed. Too much contradictory evidence to point to suicide or murder for certain. Die-hard fans are often quick to condemn Jennifer as murdering him, but who is to say what really happened. Depression can do incredible things to one's psyche, and subsequently pulling off extreme acts, like stabbing yourself in the heart. There was an actor who was found in a field, throat cut ear to ear, it was deemed a suicide. I read about an inmate who once scooped out his eyeballs, without ever making a sound or screaming.... accusing someone of murder is pretty huge. But avoiding getting more$ into her pockets via his creativity seems go be a fairly universally accepted method of expressing distain/anger at the famdamily.

Last stop for a resolution

If you can't help it just then leave it alone (leave it alone)
Leave it alone (leave it alone)

It's really easy
I believe I'll forget it too
Still you're keeping me around
Till I finally drag us both down
Pulling feathers out your hat
Yes a believe let's come to that
You belong
Tagging along
And I belong in your zoo

so I wait for confirmation that your never gonna use your starting gun
Unless it's me it sounds like being him just wasn't that much fun
Anything that I could do
Never be good enough for You
If you can't help it then just leave it alone (leave it alone)
Leave me alone (leave me alone)
Yeah, just forget it
It's really easy I'll just
Forget it too
Coast to coast (coast to coast)
Coast to coast (coast to coast)

Oh my Lord I fell asleep one day
Anything that I could do
Is there anything that I could do
Is there anything that I could do
That someone doesn't do for you
That someone didn't (doesn't) do for you
That I've already done for you

That's why

"...in your paths, the preacher ... the underpath
.. at my speech the one
Disembodied from the flood …
Simplest from the wilders
You held out to me the palm of your hand
Emanate your presence
And let me strive and then
Go shadows for your tolerance
With fog rolls in your .. full, your salt
Explains feathers that flip from air
.. as I sold
To be consumed by the snow white cold
If only I could
If only the plastic hold could stand the flame
Then this fabric torch
Would know no shame and be at strict play
With the sun that burns the glory
And honor of your mortal holy name
In the twilight the morning starts to glow
Unmistakable
Keeping me where I go
with smoothing and sway
To be begged
Filled with ancient.." … Sublime sketch
This principle fuel check
Will keep a decision
To be either emerald with envy
Or emerald with ...
fortune doesn't divvy (??) with..
with a possibility
and I kept mine
To go one green world after the next
No I don't take bets
Almost notes this
With the sung pages
Of future songs
Reigster from priceless indecisiveness
Alter calm .. designs
From the greatness of change and chance
Free wills merit glorious motive change
With the blueprints of fates reigns mapped
Unrolled from a it's silk scroll
.. prance
By the wall to windows face as you dance
Looking out at the spring into deep space
At which.
