A Fond Farewell
Elliott Smith Lyrics


The litebrite's now black and white
Cause you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Pitch burning on a shining sheet
The only maker that you'd want to meet
The dying man in a living room
Who's shadow paces the floor
Who'll take you out in the open door
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend
He said really I just want to dance
Good and evil matched perfect it's a great romance
I can deal with some physic pain
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Veins full of disappearing ink
Vomiting in the kitchen sink
Disconnecting from the missing link
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend
I see you're leaving me and taking up with the enemy
The cold comfort of the in between
A little less than a human being
A little less than a happy high
A little less than a suicide
The only things that you really tried
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend

Lyrics:

The Litebrite's now black and white
'Cos you took apart a picture that wasn't right
Pitch burning on a shining sheet
The only maker that you want to meet
A dying man in a living room
Whose shadow paces the floor
Who'll take you out in the open door
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
A fond farewell to a friend
He said really I just want to dance
Good and evil match perfect, it's a great romance
And I can deal with some psychic pain
If it'll slow down my higher brain
Veins full of disappearing ink
Vomiting in your kitchen sink
Disconnecting from the missing link
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
I'ts just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
A fond farewell to a friend
I see you're leaving me
And taking up with the enemy
The cold comfort of the in-between
A little less than a human being
A little less than a happy high
A little less than a suicide
The only things that you really tried
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
A fond farewell to a friend
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend

It's not what I'm like
It's just a fond farewell to a friend
Who couldn't get things right
Fond farewell to a friend
This is not my life
It's just a fond farewell to a friend

Anyone reading this who is struggling with drug addiction. You can beat it, I was a heroin addict for 12 years and completely convinced I would die as one but I am sober now. Keep fighting.

James Berger

Wendy Merman

@PoolShark40 i feel ya man. I'm on buprenorphine maintenance but I've relapsed so many times on harder shit it's not funny. It's really hard for me to let go of the routine of needing an outside chemical be "happy." My DOC's are IV cocaine and either oxycodone, oxymorphone, or hydromorphone in the same shot. Obviously this is impossible to do without completely losing my soul and everybody important in my life.

I have much greater self control than I used to I'm still chasing that mind state. I know to never be overconfident about my self control when it comes to that shit. I'll come up with every excuse to use. You better believe I'm taking something if there's any kind of dopaminergic, gabanergic, or opioid activity. I can't shake the positive correlation my brain makes when discovering a drug releases too much dopamine. I'm stuck trying to fill the void left by drugs by taking other drugs which just keeps me in the same vicious cycle.
