[Intro - Mike]
Yeah..go ahead and uh, cue those special effects..(haha)
Yeah..

[Verse 1 - Mike]
Man I love this rap game,
Mainly 'cause its cool to add a little,
Spice to the life you've been through,
Everyone exaggerates a tiny little bit,
Make that shit sound more gangster than it really is,
You cant appear weak, man, we wanna hear street,
We wanna hear you spit your thug over this here beat,
Dont take it as sarcastic, I can't get enough,
Im telling you,
You can call my bluff, if it's not rough,
Then I really don't need it,
I'm not even ashamed,
I got too much reality thats filling up my brain,
So sell me on the product, I'm addicted to the game,
Suck it up like a cigarette, light it up man...

[Chorus]
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 dont want the truth, I wanna feel fucking cool!

[Verse 2 - Mike]
Let me tell you something that I realized tonight,
My hip hop radio's like Marlboro Light,
They're both selling stories,
And they sound about the same,
Cigarettes say their safe,
Rappers claim they really bang,
We dont 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 rapper's CD, just,
Suckin up the guns, drugs, and misogyny,
The same way that I suck up all the stories when I breathe,
That little bit of death supposedly cancer-free,
And everything they say's got the truth twisted up but,
Twisted up's 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!

[Chorus x2]
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 dont want the truth, I wanna feel fucking cool!

[Bridge]
Man, listen to my words, listen for awhile,
Lip Service radio, dont 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 a fact, listen for awhile,
Lip Service radio, dont touch the dial,
If you're in the car man turn up the track, and,
Give the whole neighborhood some second hand rap!

[Chorus x2]
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 dont want the truth, I wanna feel fucking cool!
