It's the start of a new life day.
Oh yeah, right, like I haven't heard that one before
You know everything I try to quit I only want it some more
So I let the weeds grow up, call them flowers of the common man
But in my head, in my head, I can hear the gentle voices say

Stop smoking, take a deep breath and stop smoking
Then you can take more deep breaths, stop smoking
Spend a few more days with your family and friends
And if you want to keep hitting that high note, stop smoking

And I won't do it for another soul, no it's gotta be me
I want to say when and where there's a mountain to climb
And thank you very much, I want to waste my own time
After his way and her way, and they left me in the darkest allies

But it's time. I guess it's time, cause the voice is getting stronger still
Stop smoking, time to reach for higher realms, stop smoking
Time to boycott Jesse Helms, stop smoking
And then you can check 'No' when they ask if you smoke
And all that stuff feels great, stop smoking

Well there's a door I ran away from for every door I tried
And now I got my guilty conscience and I got my guilty pride
And now you tell me that the world needs my hot , my wildest dreams
And all that my mending bones and unschooled heart have to give

So, big surprise, I just stopped smoking
Yeah, la dee dah, now don't remind me. I think I'm going insane
But I got the guts to leave the cult of beautiful pain
Where I danced with seven veils of mysterious pollution

And it's hard, I think it's hard, trying to find a life that I can live
Janis Joplin, great spirit lost the wheel, stop running
The center could not feel, start feeling
I know life can make and break an acid queen
Us great spirits gotta watch it, stop smoking
