Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Another Cigarette

This song was created for Game of Bands round 87 : "Butts"

Lyrics:

ANOTHER CIGARETTE

VERSE 1
Drag
Take another one
Stress
Has me coming undone
Sleep
Runs away like a thief
Please
Let me see some relief

PRECHORUS
As i flick away the butt of another cigarette
I feel sick, my mind is flooded with regrets..............

VERSE 2
Hide Away
where no one can find me
So confused
there are no plans to guide me
I'm on edge
jump at sounds of nothing
In fact depressed
I stand around just puffing

CHORUS

As i flick away the butt of another cigarette
I feel so sick, my mind is flooded with regret
Where do I run to, the days I've killed - too much precaution
What have I come to, ashtrays filled with stubs of exhaustion

My shades are tightly shut, no glimmer of the sun
What have i become, besides someone undone?
As i flick away the butt of another cigarette
I'm not a lunatic, just a man whose luck has not turned yet

It's hard to hurry when your energy has slipped
Facts get blurry, memories they run adrift
Ignoring calls, and losing grip
Ashes fall from my fingertips

VERSE 3

Drag
Take another one
Stress
Has me come undone
Sleep
Runs away like a thief
Please
Let me see some relief

CHORUS

As i flick away the butt of another cigarette
I feel so sick, my mind is flooded with regret
Where do I run to, the days I've killed - too much precaution
What have I come to, ashtrays filled with stubs of exhaustion

My shades are tightly shut, no glimmer of the sun
What have i become, besides someone undone?
As i flick away the butt of another cigarette
I'm not a lunatic, just a man whose luck has not turned yet

It's hard to hurry when your energy has slipped
Facts get blurry, memories they run adrift
Ignoring calls, and losing grip
Ashes fall from my fingertips

[Exit]
