about

No Cigar Billings, Montana

Hailing from Montana, No Cigar is a band that started from the frustration and inspiration of each member’s musical and life experiences. Seeded by 3 years of touring and recording with Colorado-based band the Photo Atlas, former drummer Nick Miles has now abandoned his place behind the drum kit to challenge himself as front-man on this new project.

Track Name: Sinking Ship
Last call for anyone who gives a shit
This boat is sinking, time to jump ship

The lifeboats are gone, the captain's drunk
We gotta go now yeah we gotta jump
I've paid my dues, I've done my time
We have to go now or be left behind

Hey bartender, can I get a drink
My mouth is parched and my soul is weak
So I order a shot from the top shelf
To drown my sorrows and escape from hell

Walk it off and you'll be fine
You're not dead yet, still showing vital signs
They'll chew you up and spit you out.
And kick your gut while your on the ground.

I gotta get the hell out of this place
I gotta go, I need a change
Can I get a guitar solo?
Outro
Last call for anyone who gives a shit
This boat is sinking, time to jump ship
Track Name: Over It (Explicit)
Have another drink, wash it down with some drugs
Nothing else makes the world seem so smug
Please get out of my life, I hope you never come back
Fuck all these lies, and fuck using tact
Have another drink, wash it down with some blow
Nothing else makes the world move so slow
Please get out of my life, I hope you never come back
Fuck all these lies, and fuck using tact


It was my worst addiction
It'll take some time until I'm over it
It's no better than me I've got it figured out
Just the same as the rest I know what it's about

So I'll get mine and you get yours
While I burn down the neighborhood
I'm moving on, you're moving out
Let's do another round, and pour this one stout

I've walked these cold streets day after day
Trying to find ways to explain
Then it hits me like a brick in the face
Don't forget about me while I'm away

I'm better off without you
Track Name: Monsters
They're in my head, when I'm in bed
They'll be there until I'm dead
Outside the home there is no hope
Guiding me with a short rope
Inside my house they are so loud
Just want to make my family proud
And all the strength I conjure
Won't help me fight these monsters


When I'm awake they are still there
When I'm asleep they don't fight fair
I try to level the playing field
Use my nice things as golden shields
Sound the alarm, there's been a breach
No time for an uplifting speech
It's time to fight and give it all
So listen up and heed the call

They're all around me
So thick I can't see
Try to ignore them
But they're on the marquee
The darkest of corners
In our sound recorders
Can't get away from these
Ugly mental monsters
Track Name: Are You Alright? Are You Okay?
Intro
Are you alright, are you okay
I'd like to say my peace now if I may
All these days and nothing's changed
Wait for the problems to go away

Verse
Another breakdown baby
What is it this time?
I have no one to save me
From my own fallacies

Verse

But I will not trip, I will not fall
I'll climb right through your built up walls
I'll try to win , I cannot lose
I won't be the bearer of bad news
Verse
Please forgive the things I've done
I swear more right than wrong
And count the days down one by one
The checks are cashed, your monies gone

Chorus
Like those who lived before us
We'll never learn from their mistakes
When it all comes down to it
It doesn't matter anyway
Life goes on, it's another day

Bridge
Stuck in your ways, you'll never change
Just wait it out until it goes away
Think about it every single day
Track Name: Valentine
You are the stars up in the sky
Illuminating all the time
I want to know that you're mine
Will you be my valentine

Each day's a new day with you
The sky's the limit what shall we do
Catch a movie or take a walk
Not far just around the block
It doesn't matter to me at all
As long as we are together
I could care less about the world
We can talk about the weather

No matter what the world tells us
We will make sense of this mess
Let's not give into the masses
We'll find our own way outta this
Track Name: Dreams of the Hopeless
Everyday we lose a little bit of ourselves
Some days it feels like were trapped in a living hell
Can't lose sight of what we want
Perhaps those dreams were overshot

Running in circles again, my friend
Seems like this may be the end
We use to dream of what's to be
Now blinded by life itself
There are no guarantees

Dreams of the hopeless in my head
Manifest themselves but left unsaid
We still reach up for the stars
Sleep in our cars on sunset boulevard

It seems my hopes and dreams have changed
Wake up everyday I feel the same
I only have myself to blame
The world's the same as it ever was
Track Name: Stuck (Feat. Reid Perry)
You’ve gone away
So much to say
Just forget it all
It’ll be okay

Shot and a miss
There is no us
We’ll stop and waive
With no words to say

I will not go with you
You can’t make me
Leave me alone now
Then maybe
Things will sort themselves out
Erase all of your doubts
Another day, it’s all the same
Trying to find a new way

We try so hard yet live just once
Live just to breath, to work, and fuck
Stuck in a life you do not want

I toss and turn all night
Lost track of what’s wrong or right
But every day has its tomorrow
And every night has its sunrise
Every night has its ghosts flashing through the sky
