Cigarettes - Fort Minor
And I love this rap game mainly cause it's cool,
To add a little spice to the life you've been through,
Everyone exaggerates a tiny little bit,
Make that shit sound more gangsta then it really is,
You can't appear weak man,
We wanna hear street,
We wanna hear you spit your thug over this here beat,
Don't take it as sarcastic,
I can't get enough I'm tellin you,
You can call my bluff if it's not rough then I really don't need it,
I'm not even ashamed,
I've got too much reality and it's fillin up my brain,
So sell me on the product,
I'm addicted to the game,
Suck it up like a cigarette,
Light it up.

Its just like a cigarette,
Its something that I do,
Once in a while but between me and you,
Its just like a cigarette,
No body's really fooled,
I don't want the truth,
I just wanna feel fuckin cool.

Let me tell you somethin that I realized tonight,
My hip-hop radios like Marlboro light,
They're both selling stories and they sound about the same,
Cigarettes say they're safe,
Rappers say they really bang,
We don't care if it's true when we lay the money down,
We don't believe the words,
We just love the way they sound,
They're acting like we're idiots,
They're lying to our face,
Maybe we are idiots,
We buy it anyway.
I'm runnin out to get the next rappers CD,
Just suckin up the guns, drugs n misogyny,
The same way that I suck up all the stories that I breath,
That little bit of death supposedly cancer free,
And everything they say got the truth twisted up,
Its what I want man I can't get enough,
Cause even though we know it's all just a big bluff,
We just light another up,
WHAT we don't give a fuck.

Its just like a cigarette,
Its something that I do,
Once in a while but between me and you,
Its just like a cigarette,
Nobody's really fooled,
I don't want the truth,
I just wanna feel fuckin cool.

Its just like a cigarette,
Its something that I do,
Over and over but between me and you,
Its just like a cigarette,
Nobody's really fooled,
I don't want the truth,
I just wanna feel fuckin cool.

Man listen to ma words,
Listen for a while,
Lip service radio,
Don't touch the dial.

If you're in the car,
Turn up the track man,
Give your whole neighborhood some second hand rap,
Hey,
Matter of fact,
Listen for a while,
Lip service radio,
Don't touch the dial.

Its just like a cigarette,
Its something that I do,
Once in a while but between me and you,
Its just like a cigarette,
Nobody's really fooled,
I don't want the truth,
I just wanna feel fuckin cool.

Its just like a cigarette,
Its something that I do,
Over and over but between me and you,
Its just like a cigarette,
Nobody's really fooled,
I don't want the truth,
I just wanna feel fuckin cool
