Been Smoking Too Long


'yeah, I really, um, I really, I really wanted to kind of like, 
to capture some kind of like moment, but maybe it's better if I'm sober...' 

Wake up in the morning, I look at my clock 
it's way past noontime, I'm late for work. 
Tell me what have I done wrong? 
nothing can go right with me it must be that I've been smoking 
too long 

Go to fix me some breakfast, I ain't got no food 
take me a shower, the water don't feel no good. 
Tell me what have I done wrong? 
and nothing can go right with me must be that I've been smoking 
too long 

I got opium in my chimney, no other life to choose 
nightmares made of hash dreams, the devil in my shoes. 
What have I done wrong? 
yeah nothing can go right with me it must be that I've been smoking 
too long 

When I'm smoking, smoking, put my worries on a shelf 
try not to think about nothing, don't wanna see myself 
What have I done wrong? 
and nothing can go right with me it must be that I've been smoking 
too long 

In this blues I'm singing, there's a lesson to be learned 
you go round smoking, you're gonna get burned 
Fuck me what have I done wrong? 
nothing can go right with me must be that I've been smoking 
too long
