The 2 A.M Writer

Cigarette Love Song

I'm as pale as the fog

I'll let you take me in and inhale me

Take me into your lungs

So hopefully I'll have a shot at your heart

...

But you'll use me

Like I used myself

Stomp me out like a cigarette

Watch me fizzle and turn gray

...

I'm as toxic as rat poison

I'll let you smoke me and feel me

Coating your lungs in coal black addiction

All I want is your heart

...

But you still spit me

I'm only good till the flavor wears off

So you throw me away like a pack

And with that all hopes

...

But I'm not sitting on shelves anymore

Waiting to be lit and used and stomped out

And now you're coughing out your lungs

Black tar swirling with karma

...

So while you're still wrenching

On the hospital bed, wishing it was over

I'll be off the counter and not in your pocket

Waiting to be smoked again

...

          Thanks, more about how people will use you for their own gain, and when you finally stand up, you watch them wither away
