lyrics

Snorting Xanax in an alley
Trying to recreate the summers of make believe
I’ve got a superiority complex
Like it’s my job to teach others to be free oh oh oh

I am half of what I could be
But I just can’t seem to find the rest oh oh
I am half of what I could be
But I just can’t stop smoking these
Goddamn cigarettes yeah

These goddamn cigarettes
Pall Malls and Bellmonts and Benson and Hedges
These goddamn cigarettes
Studios and Players and Canadian Classics

And I can’t get out of this city
My will isn’t as strong as my dreams
So I’ll watch these bar bathroom hookups
Just wishing that I could live so simply

I am half of what I could be
But I just can’t seem to find the rest oh oh
I am half of what I could be
But I just can’t stop smoking these
Goddamn cigarettes yeah

These goddamn cigarettes
Pall Malls and Bellmonts and Benson and Hedges
These goddamn cigarettes
Studios and Players and Canadian Classics

These goddamn cigarettes
When I quit oh I get all riled up yeah
These goddamn cigarettes
When I quit I say baby it’s been a while

So I pray to your gray eyes
Don’t treat my I love yous like a slap
If leaving is something I end up doing
You know I’ll always be right back

Poured my heart like cement
Into the street that I was raised on
And if that weighs nothing to you
I hope my gaze weighs more than a ton

Baby I’m half the man I should be
Oh please won’t you help me find the rest
I’m half the man I should be
But I just can’t stop smoking these
GODDAMN CIGARETTES YEAH

These goddamn cigarettes
Pall Malls and Bellmonts and Benson and Hedges
These goddamn cigarettes
Studios and Players and Canadian Classics

These goddamn cigarettes
When I quit oh I get all riled up yeah
These goddamn cigarettes
