Side Effects (Acoustic)

This song is by Racoon and appears on the album Here We Go, Stereo! (2001).

All the side effects
Were never mentioned to me
I am innocent of uncontrolled abuse
No one ever told me cigarettes could kill me
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 the packages and posters
Of my role-up smokes
Tell me that's a hoax

Got the freakin' idea
I could be like James Dean
15 years old with my foot against the wall
Getting smoke into my eyes
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 pores 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
All wrapped up and tangled in
Reality's a fake
The flashy 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, to all of this, I bet
We're scared, but won't admit, 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 a smoke and city air
Almost used
To all the crappy things we feed on
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 flashy 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, to all of this, I bet
We're scared, but won't admit, to all of this I bet

We're left for dead (side effects)
Without beliefs we're dead (side effects)
We're scared, but won't admit, to all of this, I bet
We're scared, but won't admit, to all of this I bet
So we cease to care instead

All the side effects
Were never mentioned to me
So I am innocent
