Cigarettes are time warp stamps
They break and pulse the air
Old bars on maps checked
But they're not there
I thought about those those back end traps
And the smell of your hair
I'm gonna need a couple years
A few odd years
I can taste your blood
It tastes like home
But the maps don't reach back that far
