We all know by now that cigarettes can kill
Why live a long time when you’re over the hill
You lecture me about the dangers of passivity
It’s a big white lie to create conformity

Push me out onto the edge of society
I want to puff on another cigarette
As you huff I’ll puff on cigarette
Adverts deglamorise my depravity
Another vice, Ill advised, I don’t need your f’ing advice

The health freaks will soon be after you
They never tire of telling us what to do
That model's too thin she’s been taking heroin
Your kids are fat should become vegetarians

I’m no sinner don’t try to save me
I don’t care for my health and safety

They shut the pubs and ban the roulette wheels
Got a chocolate tax and monitor your meals
Bring in rationing because we’re irrational
They invent a pill to make us malleable

Cigarette, cigarette, cigarette
I don’t want a Nicorette
Want a cigarette
I’ve been drowning in my debts
Want a bet want a bet
I'm not drowning in regrets want a cigarette
They’ve been analysing mice
About vice, It’s so nice
To ignore their advice
I’m ignoring their advice

I would rather pay the price

With lyrics sharper than razor-wire and tunes that stick the boot in, Belter is punk for grown-ups who like a dance.

Their first single "TV Junkie" was released in 2012, gaining worldwide airplay and acclaim.

It was followed in January 2013 by a 3-track EP, ‘Invisible Cat’, which sees the band’s trademark sound expanded with a little help from their friends on strings, brass and slide guitar.
