All the side effects were never mentioned to me
I am innocent of uncontrolled abuse
No one ever told me cigarettes could kill me
And now I'm used to them
I never saw the writings and the warnings
On the packages and posters
Of my role-up smokes
Tell me that's a hoax
The writings and the warnings
On my packages and posters
Of the role-up smokes
Tell me that's a hoax

I got the freakin' idea I could be like James Dean
15 years old with my foot against the wall
Getting smoke into my eye not that I'd show you
Being cool and man I never saw
The writings and the warnings
On the packages and posters
Of my role-up smokes
Tell me that's a hoax

The porcs of plague that tease the cow
The cross-eyed steak I'm eating now
Can overload and in time explode

Pretty done for heaven knows
The city's like a snake
We're all wrapped up and tangled in
Reality's a fake
The flasy coloured neon signs
Are screaming ain't it great
Come dance with us
Take your chance with us

We're left for dead
Without beliefs we're dead
We're scared but won't admit it
To all of this I bet
We're scared but won't admit it
To all of this I bet
So we cease to care instead

Now I'm stuck between the alcohol and wisdom
Now I'm stuck between the smoke and city air
I'm almost used to all these crappy things we feed on
I'm almost belly round and unaware

Pretty done for heaven knows
The city's like a snake
All wrapped up and tangled in
Reality's a fake
The flasy coloured neon signs
Are screaming ain't it great
Come dance with us
Take your chance with us

We're left for dead
Without beliefs we're dead
We're scared but won't admit it
To all of this I bet
We're scared but won't admit it
To all of this I bet

We're left for dead
Without beliefs we're dead
We're scared but won't admit it
To all of this I bet
We're scared but won't admit it
To all of this I bet
So we cease to care instead

All those side effects were never mentioned to me
So I am innocent
