"Cigarette" as written by and Gordon Brown....
Say you'll meet me after school
Lucky me you're pretty cool
Badly want someone to want me
Take me home so you can flaunt me

Who this boyfriend number 10
Daddy crows from in his den
Roughly push me to your bed
Pants are taken lights are dead
Think you're perfect irresistible
Queen of hedonistic principles
Wondrous vision, buxom swell
Look like heaven taste like hell

You seduce me with your plastic smile
Roll on lips and your ponytail
And you tell me I'm the only one
Same excuse for every father's son
The promise that you just can't keep
I'm lonely but I'm not that cheap

I used to believe in love
You use it just like a glove
Stop the fingerprints from showing
Taking things when no one's knowing

Touch me cause my daddy's rich
Marry into bigger fish
Tell me I'm your dearest honey
Think that I'm just easy money

I don't care if sex is casual
Fantasies or feelings actual
I won't be a stepping stone
To any kind of bullshit throne

Girl you smoking cigarettes
Rancid poison on your breath
Taste yourself you smell like death
To love you I must drink my meth

Kiss you is like lick the street
Tar and spit between my teeth
Heart attacks and sweet relief
Take your pleasures life is brief

Fuck yourself and fuck your cigarette
Take your chances take your liberties
Fuck yourself and fuck your cigarette
Take your chances take your liberties

    General CommentThis song is about the lead singer (who happens to be Sting's son) having feelings for a girl, but realizing not only does she smoke (a disgusting habit) but that she just wants to be with him simply because of who his father is. (Badly want someone to want me, take me home so you can flaunt me....Touch me cause my daddy’s rich, marry into bigger fish, tell me I’m your dearest honey, think that I’m just easy money)

    General Commenti love the last verse

    Kiss you is like lick the street
    Tar and spit between my teeth
    Heart attacks and sweet relief
    Take your pleasures life is brief

    hes talking about a girl that smokes and gross it is, how the girl will get heart attacks just to make the feeling for a cigarette go away and then how she takes life for granted
