“Everybody Cares, Everybody Understands” (Elliott Smith)

Everybody cares, everybody understands
Yes, everybody cares about you
Yeah and whether or not you want them to

It’s a chemical embrace that kicks you in the head
To a pure synthetic sympathy that infuriates you totally
And a quiet lie that makes you wanna scream and shout

So here I lay dreaming looking at the brilliant sun
Raining, it’s guiding light upon everyone

For a moment’s rest you can lean against the banister
After running upstairs again and again
From wherever they came to fix you in
But always fear city’s finest follow right behind

You got a pretty vision in your head
A pencil full of poison lead
And a sickened smile illegal in every town

So here I lay dreaming looking at the brilliant sun
Raining, it’s guiding light upon everyone
Here I lay dreaming looking at the brilliant sun
Raining, it’s guiding light upon everyone

You say you mean well, you don’t know what you mean
You fucking ought to stay the hell away
From things you know nothing about
