Color Bars
Elliott Smith Lyrics


I see color bars when I come
Sergeant Rock broke the key off in the lock to where I come from
Sir, no sir, we have no power in the air
The battle's on the ground

Laying low again, high on the sound
Bruno S. is a man to me
You're just some dude with a stilted attitude
That you learned from TV
You'll undo, but I'll be connecting everything
The traffic in my town
Riding high again, high on the sound

Everyone wants me to ride into the sun
But I ain't gonna go down
Laying low again, high on the sound

Michael Hanne

1:39 always gets chills. That little relief between the vocals. Fucking next level composition.

iesus68

so true

Sammi Cullison

the figure 8 album is so fantastic. elliott doesnt have a single bad song.

ANTHONY PHILIPPO

in fact elliott doesnt have a song that sucks in his whole music career, thats the beauty of him...r.i.p his beautiful soul 🙏🏻

C. E B.

Some of his songs like this one are so full of joy that I don't understand when people say his music was depressing. As depressed as he may have been, you can tell that he was fighting against the darkness and really did appreciate life. He was a beautiful honest person.

@Kevin Thomas it's just him being in the wrong place at the wrong time :c

Wendy Darling

The feeling I get from a lot of his songs is this fragile state of happiness like he knows that it's not going to last long and he's going to pay for every second of it but still it's somehow worth it...

Kevin Thomas

His death was really senseless but he did take a lot of drugs those highs have ups and downs, much like his music. For example, I sometimes feel like I want to stick around and am sure of it, but then I'll feel like maybe not. ebbs and flows.

Pete T

He was also funny ...goofy and good sense of humor.
