Plainclothes Man
Heatmiser Lyrics


You're everybody's second home
Always trying to get me alone
An easy way to lose it all
Always there when all else fails
Over by the west side rails

But I don't really need that now
I never really did anyhow
I only really needed alcohol
Something that'd treat me okay
And wouldn't say the things you'd say

Please turn out the light
I get a sick confusion headache
Trying to figure out who's right

Dreaming on the silver strand
Waking up to plainclothes man
You little bastard, little boy in blue
Someone's gonna get to you
And fuck up everything you do

Some european son
He's serious with everyone
And he thinks he'll win you with his angry kiss
Acting like he has no needs
Wanting you to watch him bleed

Made for each other bet you pay me any mind
Just goes to show my continual decline
They say that I'll recover my love of her once in a while
But I don't know
I don't think so

There's something that I'll tell you now
Now that no one else is around
The sort of lesson that I learned from you
Not quite the way you planned
But I know you'll understand

Someone takes a photograph
A picture while their sweetheart laughs
A perfect moment in a flash of light
Counting back from three till one
That's exactly what you've done

And I'm so
Unsurprised
I remember, I remember why I dream in black and white
Goes to show my continual decline
They say that I'll recover
My love of her
Once in a while
But I don't know
I don't think so
I don't think so

Here ya go

You're everybody's second home
Always trying to get me alone
An easy way to lose it all
Always there when all else fails
Over by the west side rails
But I don't really need that now
I never really did anyhow
I only really needed alcohol
Something that'd treat me okay
And wouldn't say the things you'd say
Please turn out the light
I get a sick confusion headache
Trying to figure out who's right
Dreaming on the silver strand
Waking up to plainclothes man
You little bastard, little boy in blue
Someone's gonna get to you
And fuck up everything you do
He's so unhappy inside
He's serious with everyone
And he thinks he'll win you with his angry kiss
Acting like he has no needs
Wanting you to watch him bleed
Made for each other bet you pay me any mind
Just goes to show my continual decline
They say that I'll recover my love of her once in a while
But I don't know
I don't think so
There's something that I'll tell you now
Now that no one else is around
The sort of lesson that I learned from you
Not quite the way you planned
But I know you'll understand
Someone takes a photograph

A perfect moment in a flash of light
Counting back from three till one
That's exactly what you've done
And I'm so
Unsurprised
I remember, I remember why I dream in black and white
Goes to show my continual decline
They say that I'll recover
My love of her
Once in a while
But I don't know
I don't think so
I don't think so

Elliott Smith was a musical genius.

@Hillary Sudeikis There you go again! Firstly it was a general statement about religion, not just about you. Secondly, I never said it has anything to do with Jesus; you say that disagreeing with someone does not constitute as hate but claim the media is a tool of Satan for not having the same ideals as you and criticising them. Thirdly, I’m already very familiar with Christian principles and beliefs as I have been raised in a very uptight Christian home; you don’t have to condescendingly explain to me and tell me I don’t know what hate means. You come across as entitled, and I’m not just insulting you I’m suggesting you should take a different approach if you’re trying to bring God into a conversation. Also I personally think claiming someone is burning in hell when it was completely unwarranted constitutes as hateful but I don’t know what hate is so my bad.

Hillary Sudeikis

@F M. hey, firstly I’m not religious I’m a born again Bible reading and believing Christian. Secondly, the media is a tool of satan! It has nothing to do with Lord Jesus Christ. Lord Jesus Christ said repent or perish, we need to received Lord Jesus and to repent from our sinful lives in order to make it to heaven. It’s not hateful, you people don’t understand what the terms hate, hatred and hateful mean, disagreeing with someone doesn’t mean you hate them, telling the truth to someone doesn’t mean you hate them. Please read the meanings of these words.

F M.

@Hillary Sudeikis This is the sort of thing that makes people disillusioned with Christianity. It’s just uncalled for, hateful and screams self-righteousness. No wonder religion is portrayed with so much resentment in media.

Hillary Sudeikis

@Rocky Balboa Actually, if I was judging hypocritically Matthew 7 would be applicable to me, but I’m not, I’ve repented from worshipping and idolising Elliott smith for over ten years of my life, I’m not here to represent your idea of what Christianity I’m here to represent the Lord Lord Jesus Christ, who called out sin and told people to repent or perish in hell (Luke 13:3,5).

Rocky Balboa

@Hillary Sudeikis as if you know. Stop making Christians look bad. It’s not your place to judge. That’s Gods job. Don’t you know that your judgment will be measured back to you? You aren’t saving anyone saying crap like that.

I was afraid Heatmiser wouldn't be any good compared to Elliott's solo work. Glad to be wrong.

Rocky Balboa

@mohammed alrasheed damn, you sure put a jihaad on him

Ed Helvey
