about

Cigarettes and Milk Portland, Oregon

Everyone says my moniker is gross. Cigarettes and Milk is the factual and fictitious project of Waldo Przekop. Which is me. Stories of a kid who hates the system of oppression put in place by a capitalist society. Songs of my deepest internal grief and anxiety. I am emotional, almost none of my music is happy. I am a lo-fidelity musician and I am folk out of the gutter. A blueberry farmer too. ... more

Track Name: Valley of Sickness
In accordance with departure
I give the heart I hold
Left with another
Embroidered memories I choose to fold
Overlook the Valley of Sickness
Through my widow's peak
Oh and this one sided love
Has screwed with me

Fool hearted swings of despair control my being
Colors drain from rainbows from which I bleed

Throat incision they've depicted
Hard earned profit but still evicted
In this life one of us will lose
If not me, then I refuse
Track Name: Not the One
You've been appeasing every single winter season
Since you lost what it was to be
You put your heart in a person holding over
Doesn't love you half as much as me

Well I'm not a savior it's just my behavior
I've never done this I'm not the one you love yet
I think I'm scared I've been living in fear
And I'd like to confess but I'm just an old friend
Just an old friend
Just an old friend to you

Oh I'm not the one

I heard a story that you're buried in another
as you left to cry yourself to sleep
I found my feelings in the dark along the sidewalk
And prayed that you'd fall for me


Well I'm not a savior it's just my behavior
I've never done this I'm not the one you love yet
I think I'm scared I've been living in fear
And I'd like to confess but It's just to hard to say
Just to hard to say
I don't think you'd wanna be with me

Oh, I really hope you do
Oh and I want your love

Oh I'm not the one
Track Name: The Tragedy of a Hopeless Romantic
I broke my promise after you left my bed
These years no warning don't just waltz on back in
I've hated you as much as I hate myself
Of course there's something but I'm with someone else

The wind is stirring like a cyclone in me
My lover's knocking louder than I can speak
I love you girl I swear she's bringing us down
She's playing more games with me than I'll allow

I sold my soul just so I could break her heart
Aesthetic streetlights can't even cure the dark
I walked on in oh, to settle this down
Turns out both my ex and lover planned this out

They took my car, took my money and left me frantic
Guess I'm the tragedy of a hopeless romantic
Track Name: The Fourth Wall
Swing back here
Come and see the flood
Stranger things have happened
Since you've gone
Altercations
From the moon to dying doves
A fractal portrayal
Of bovine skulls and battered teeth

Well thank god it was all just a dream
And thank god that I am really me
And thank god that I don't believe
There's anything beyond the fourth wall

Read the paper
See if I'm in the news
Maybe I got famous
Over night

Pack a lunch dear
Let's eat in the parking lot
Grass has been a cliche
Since before me and you

Well thank god that we both don't have a job
And thank god that's I'm not completely lost
And thank god that I don't believe
There's anything beyond the fourth wall

Lose the liquor
Here come the cops
Kick it under the car
With your feet
Run like hell
And dip into the woods
Start a fire
Invite all the kids we know

Well thank god for the warmth I receive
And thank god I'll smell like smoke in the morning
And thank god that I don't believe
There's anything beyond the fourth wall

And thank god for this can of pbr
And thank god someone invented lincoln logs
And thank god there's so much to see
Thank god this world ain't just for me
Track Name: Not Drunk Until You're Dead
Well I ain't ever been down with fate
And I ain't ever seen the coastal cliffs
The departure is lost and encased
In the crystals of loves embrace
Oh how the day is hardly done
You're not done until you're drunk
You're not drunk until you're dead

And the shimmer of shoreline gold
Brought riches weighed with dreams
And I followed the minute hand all the way home
And wound up standing at the edge
How the thought is hard enough
You ain't hard until you're drunk
You're not drunk until you're dead

Oh my diamond ring hit the pavement
The stench of rotting honeysuckle filled he air
And wafted upstream into the sky
Memories of smoke and fire
Filled with rage from every lie I've ever herd
And I'm punch drunk, hackeysacking, looking for a fight
If I can't find it then I'll go where I might
Litter up the alley with cigarettes and spilled beer
Yeah it comes from sadness
But I can't kick the habit oh
Track Name: Blind Eye
Bloodlust beneath my skin I swore I would never let it falter
Birth was given on an alter by some god somewhere, with some plan

Particle dirt in fairy tales
Seen through cracks of the tool shed
Blind eye with twenty-twenty vision
Fuck off, it's my decision

Weeping feels like old wounds being prodded by the cross of christ with nails through the wrist
Buried emotions laid to death by stone bore a new life as a sociopath

Particle dirt in fairy tales
Seen through cracks of the church glass
Blind eye, dartboard precision
Fuck off, it's my decision
Track Name: Let This Be
Concocted and clipped of my ego
Knicked in the head as I passed to the floor
I miss how it felt to be sober
But now it reminds me of you even more

I know that it's not worth trying
Oh lord don't ya know that I'm tryin'
I didn't want you to leave
How am I to let this be

N' hey I got something to say
I know that you're running away

And this is no joke
I can't even hope
Now that it's been so long ago
I really thought it would work

Intoxicated and a mastermind
The sweetest sorrow poured into wine
I drank all the sins that were
Confined in both me and you

I know that it's not worth trying
Oh lord don't ya know that I'm tryin'
I didn't want you to leave
How am I to let this be

N' hey I got something to say
I know that you're running away

And this is no joke
I can't even hope
Now that it's been so long ago
I really thought it would work
Track Name: Out of Love
My father taught me how to whistle
As we would fish along the lake
Death had taught me not to distance
The haunting thoughts he's sure to bring
I wished of seeing worlds of legends
Imagination had brought me lives unlived
I shied from crushes and attention
And grew to need it more than I did

Listen to my words
But not because I fear the dark
And if I leave a faring letter
Make sure to read it when I'm gone

And I don't know and I don't know
How to amend the shit I've done
And I don't know, hell I don't know
What is to live when out of love
Track Name: Under the Hidden Moon
Live life to the melody
Take me out to the stars
Write little notes and put them places
I'll find later on
Live life like it's delicate
Fall asleep in my arms
But don't be a memory
Cause that would break my heart

And the rain, waits for you
To hear your sad, sad tune
I listened, and waited here
Under the hidden moon

You went to kiss me
I tried to run
Are you fighting for or are you
The end of love
The crows are scoffing
The leaves are falling
I married you in my dreams
But I buried you beneath the trees

I listened, and waited here
Under the hidden moon
