    No Cigar formed in a tiny garage over four years ago. All the while, the band has passionately plugged away at refining their sound and honing their skills as artists and performers. No Cigar started out strong by self-producing a handful of five to six song EP's & some other various single tracks, as well as logging tens of thousands of miles playing shows around the US. Yet, after four plus years, the band hasn’t released a proper full-length album. Palm Mutes & Pick Slides will be No Cigar’s premiere full-length LP.

Track Name: A Face You Know
Enough excuses.
Let's face it.
The only time
That you ever cared
was when you had
a familiar face
in your hands.
Swept away, with pills and needles.
A constant cloud
of smoke around you
And a glazed look in your eyes
Would always tell me
That you're gone

I ran away for a week
Questioned my beliefs as to why I bothered
Do with it what you please
Just don’t fucking lie to me

Chorus

I refuse to believe that what I've done didn't make a difference.
I guess I was wrong all along
And to you dear friend,
This is goodbye

Take this note.
Store it away.
Somewhere to remember.
That I really cared.

Take this pen
Write a letter
Let me know
That you're still alive
I still care
Enough to show you
A face you know
(I'll never give up)

Another chapter
In our lives
Count me out
Of the screenplay
I gave up
On you completely
Just let me be
Track Name: Chris's Song
This is for my friends
This is for my family
And to anyone
Who’s ever been there for me

Once again
I’m at a loss for words
The line we drew
Was never clear

This is for my friends
This is for my family
And to anyone
Who’s ever been there for me

Like a grain of salt
It will rub right off
Only time will tell
If we’re right or wrong

This is for my friends
This is for my family
And to anyone
Who’s ever been there for me

Whoa!

This is for my friends
This is for my family
And to anyone
Who’s ever been there for me

Without them I’d be nothing
Without them I’d be nothing
Nothing at all
Track Name: No Future
Lately I’ve been feeling weighed down
And it seems like you don’t want to listen
I’ve been looking for a way out
But it seems like you don’t even care

When I think of all the times I spent with you
Wait a minute, is it true
Or is it a way to feel alive
For me and you

Well I know you have feelings
So I will find a middle ground and work it out
Is that a way to feel alive for me and you

I know we suffer our feelings are so involved
Time to stick it out this much is true
Is that a way to feel alive for me and you

You know how I get when feelings are involved

Try to stop playing these crazy games with my heart and my life when did this get so involved in shit
This storm is raging out of control
We have no shelter at all no place to call our home
No future no place to call our home x2 or 3
Track Name: I Hate Myself For Hating That I Hate To Say I Hate You
When you were around, things never were okay
And since you left me here, I’ve hated life each day
It’s taken me so long to finally fucking say
I hate myself for hating that I hate to say I hate you
This is the last song I write for you

We haven’t talked in years, it’s better off that way
You started your new life, moved a thousand miles away
It’s fucking taken me so fucking long, to finally fucking say
I hate myself for hating that I hate to say I hate you
This is the last song I write for you
Track Name: Over It
Have another drink and 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 and 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 affliction, 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

Have another drink and 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

So I’ll get mine and you get yours, while I burn down the neighborhood
I’m moving on, your moving out
Let’s do another round and make this one stout
I’ve walked these cold streets day after day
Trying to come up with something to say
Then it hits me like a brick in the face
Don’t forget about me while I’m away, while I’m away

So we roll onto better days, don’t forget about me while I’m away

Have another drink and 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

I’ve walked these cold streets day after day
Trying to come up with something to say
Then it hits me like a brick in the face
Don’t forget about me while I’m away, while I’m away

So we roll on to better days, don’t forget about me while I’m away

I’m better off without you, I’m better off
Track Name: Way Too Fast
My life is moving, my life is moving way too fast
I wish it slowed down, so we can make this moment last

Why don't we run away
What would they say

I only wanted, I only wanted the very best
I wish this could go on forever
I wish this could go on forever and ever

Why don't we run away
What would they say
Why don't we run away
What would they say
Track Name: I-90 West
no matter of miles could ever fucking stop us
from chasing dreams
we always seem to make it despite all the speed bumps
don't take this away
away from me
I wouldn't trade it for the world
my heart's been set to make this work
all those sleepless nights have been so fucking worth it
I miss the painted yellow lines
the directional road signs
to take me where
I need to be
I miss everything about September
all the things I can and can't remember
I fucking miss the good times and the bad weather
I miss everything about September
Track Name: Lookout Pass
Car rides & empty ballrooms, corner to corner, ear to ear
Smile to drag me, into a blissful beginning
That ended quicker than I’d hoped
Thoughts of you moved me
Thoughts of you scared me

I tore myself apart to understand this emptiness
Maybe I got complacent, with my thoughts of you
I tore myself apart to understand this emptiness
What’s to miss, when I never knew

I think I’m missing something
Maybe I’m crazy
I’m stretching my imagination
I’m missing something I don’t know
Maybe I’m just missing you
Corner to corner, ear to ear
You led me here

I tore myself apart to understand this emptiness
Maybe I got complacent, with my thoughts of you
I tore myself apart to understand this emptiness
What’s to miss, when I never knew

I can’t control this, you are the reason for being here
I can’t control this, you are the reason for being here

I tore myself apart to understand this emptiness
Maybe I got complacent, what’s to miss when I never knew?
Track Name: Turn Back
Go to your job, it’s a means to an end
And buy fancy things to impress all your friends
It’s not what I want and it’s not who I am
I chose this hard path when the sign said turn back
I’m not one to scare so I stepped on the gas
There’s no end in sight, no time to be polite
We’re soldiers on a mission, let’s get the objective done so we can all go home

Like ants building hills, life will not last forever
Everything will crumble with time and weather
It seems like we’re so small
Living in a giant world
Fall in line, do what you’re told
Don’t have too much fun it could kill you

“Variation of chorus” X1 ½

We’ll never make it if we’re acting like kids
It’s time to grow up and start acting our age
Put in the time and we’ll end up just fine
Careful you’re not blinded with rage
Track Name: Back Bay
Top of the hub, the greatest view of Boston
The skyline takes away, all my doubts and more

I’ve seen the coastline, a walk through back bay
Up to Tremont & back down to Boylston
The long walks, cab rides alone
Is where I truly felt at home
It’s where I found my peace of mind

We threw our bags into the ocean
Watched the tide drift my dreams
Into my feet I found a way
To coincide my heart and head

I’ve seen the coastline, a walk through back bay
Up to Tremont & back down to Boylston
The long walks, cab rides alone
Is where I truly felt at home
It’s where I found my peace of mind
How could I ever find

Another way to find myself
I’ve been lost and I can tell
I’ve seen the darkest sides
Of this small town and these big lies

I’ve seen the coastline, a walk through back bay
Up to Tremont & back down to Boylston
The long walks, cab rides alone
Is where I truly felt at home
It’s where I found my peace of mind
Track Name: Crossroads
Another crossroads, which way to go
Distracted by your favorite song on the stereo
It isn’t this one though

With paper and pen, we were kids on a mission
Avoiding clicks because we never fit in
Start our own thing, invite everybody
No one will come, busy with their own thing

Another crossroads, which way to go
Distracted by your favorite song on the stereo X2

Calling out to you, get nothing but smoke and mirrors
I can see right through, everything you do
How’s it going to end, we thought it never did X2

Start our own thing, invite everybody
No one will come, busy with their own thing

Another crossroads, which way to go
Distracted by your favorite song on the stereo X2

It isn’t this one though
Track Name: We Wouldn't Listen
No one ever told us what it’s really like to grow up
Or if they did, we wouldn’t listen... we wouldn’t listen.

Do your best and every now and then
Learn to rest you can’t save the world on your own
Life will bring you down
There’s no right way around
Are you better off alone?

You can’t live your life on your terms
If you ever expect any return
You get out what you put in
You have to stop acting like a kid
