Last Cigarette

lyrics

I’m a man of some skill
with a knife in my jeans, and a penchant to heal.
With advice in my will, so you’d know that I knew when I’m gone
you’d be around still.
And I’ll sing you to sleep
any time of the day
and you’ll wax and you’ll wane
and you’ll swell with the sea
take a nap at midday, like a joke
when I know you’ve got somewhere to be.

And my eyes won’t get better forever,
I forget what’s important to see.

And I breathe fire,
I taste sweet, so sweet.

I’m a rocket fuel flame.
I’ve a warhead, that streamlines my moped.
I take half the time on mistakes.
I’m efficient, yeah, everyone’s glad when I came.
I’m a talentless boy with a garden
that’s four foot by two, and it’s rotten, because
it’s too damp at the roots, oh, it’s shallow and wide,
and it’s good for a meal that’s got nothing inside.

And my eyes won’t get better forever,
I forget what’s important to see.

And I breathe fire,
I taste sweet, so sweet. So.

Comparisons to Leonard Cohen, Violent Femmes and the Barenaked Ladies have been met with confused stares.
