about

One of the first songs Lance Conrad ever wrote, Holy Smoke stands as the most intimate, stripped down song on the album.

lyrics

Holy smoke, how'd you choke? It was your only chance and you blew it. The straw that broke the camel's back, it was inevitable and you knew it.
It was the night all the weight of the world fell upon your shoulders. That's how easy failure can be.
You'll be singing that song 'till everybody's gone and you're old. Singing, "oh, I could have been someone, I should have been someone"

You dove right in, into the water, and you came back up with nothing. Well what the hell, couldn't we tell we were all rooting for a zero?
It was the night all the weight of the world fell upon your shoulders, yeah, that's how easy failure can be.
You'll be singing that song 'till everybody's gone and you're old. Singing, "oh, I could have been someone, I should have been someone."
...but you knew, all along, that all and all always equates to zero.
