"veins full of disappearing ink, vomiting in your kitchen sink" is the one that always makes me stop and go 'holy fuck'



he's incredible, and his dark humour is underrated by a lot of critics too. like the sea of trash line in Stupidity Tries, stuff like that is gold

Maybe it just takes time to grow? I still haven’t really returned to his albums yet so it could be I’ll “get it” a bit more when I do.

you need Elliott to start to occupy a nostalgic place - more so than most song writers

My core group of late high school/early college best friends unanimously adore Elliott's music - listening always brings fond memories of them.



Hell, I (sort of) met one of them through a Facebook status posted by a mutual friend who quoted a lyric from "Say Yes."
